CARTOON GUILTY OF ANTI-CATHOLICISM
Catalyst June Issue 2007
After the Supreme Court upheld the partial birth abortion ban on April 18, Bill Donohue predicted that anti-Catholic bigots would “go bonkers over the fact that all five of the justices who voted against infanticide are Roman Catholic.” Donohue’s prediction was right on target.
Most of the bigots expressed their anti-Catholicism orally or in print. But at least one, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Tony Auth, did so artistically. Auth’s contribution to the anti-Catholic bigotry that followed the Supreme Court decision appears above. His cartoon was published in the Philadelphia Inquirer and in the online version of the New York Times on April 20.
