AUSTRALIA’S WAR ON CHRISTIAN KIDS

By | 2017-09-20T20:45:08+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

If it weren't for Cardinal George Pell, it would not matter a whole lot to the Catholic League if a free nation like Australia decided to emulate the totalitarian regime in North Korea. But he does matter, and that is why we are concerned. He has been the target of character assassins for a very long [...]

TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT “TRANSGENDERS”

By | 2017-09-20T20:36:57+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

President Trump's decision to ban so-called transgender persons from the military makes perfect sense: the armed forces exist to win wars—they are not a laboratory for social or sexual engineers. There is an underlying issue, however, that is much more serious. It's time for some straight talk. No one doubts that there are men who have, [...]

This is a shortened version of an article posted on CNSNews.com that was written by Bill Donohue. Michelle Carter has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for encouraging her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, to kill himself.

DONOHUE DEFENDS DAWKINS

By | 2017-09-20T20:36:58+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Whenever Bill Donohue writes about Richard Dawkins, it is to criticize some anti-Catholic remark he has made. He has written a fair amount about him. This time Donohue was on his side. Dawkins was denied the opportunity to express his views on KPFA: the radio station reneged on its invitation to interview him. Here is how [...]

WHY THE LEFT DEFENDS ISLAMISTS

By | 2017-09-20T20:36:58+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It continues to confound liberals and conservatives alike: Why would the Left defend Islamists? The latest victim of this fascinating alliance is Richard Dawkins, the English left-wing atheist who was disinvited by a Berkeley left-wing radio station after it was discovered that Dawkins said Islam is the world's "most evil" religion. It did not matter to [...]

CATHOLIC-EVANGELICAL ALLIANCE IS STRONG

By | 2017-09-20T20:36:58+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Traditional Catholics and evangelical Christians have much in common, the latest example of which happened recently. Following an event on July 11th where U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions addressed the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), ABC News, NBC News, and CNN smeared ADF, portraying it as a hate group. Donohue quickly came to the defense of ADF [...]

CATHOLIC DEMOCRATS TRASH EWTN

By | 2017-09-20T20:36:58+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Steven A. Krueger, president of Catholic Democrats, lashed out at EWTN branding it a "Catholic-right media outlet" akin to the extremist outfit, Church Militant. The latter is a screwball website with little or no influence. EWTN is a well respected source of Catholic teaching and commentary, one that has won the plaudits of many bishops, as [...]

Rep. Ben Ray Luján, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told The Hill on July 31 that when it comes to abortion, "There is not a litmus test for Democratic candidates."
