 The pushback against false accusations made about priests and nuns in Ireland has begun, but to really have an effect, those who have made sensationalistic charges must be held accountable. This would certainly include Catherine Corless, the Galway typist behind the "mass grave" hoax. She needs to explain herself. Just consider three inconsistent comments she made [...]

Recently, a new survey by the Pew Research Center titled "In America, Does More Education Equal Less Religion?" was published.

The ACLU is suing another Catholic hospital—and this one really puts the lie to their professed motives of anti-discrimination and access to healthcare. Evan Michael Minton, a former legislative aide in California, wants to change from being a woman to a man. As part of the process, Minton sought a hysterectomy at Mercy San Juan Medical [...]

Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, which unloaded its staff in 2010 and almost went under, is furious at the Republican-sponsored healthcare bill. Instead of offering a detailed critical assessment of the bill, its director, Christopher Hale, offered a rant, branding it "immoral." It is a wonder why Soros continues to fund a guy who [...]

By | 2017-06-16T15:30:37+00:00 June 15th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Kudos to Texas Rep. James Frank for securing the right of faith-based entities to carry out their mission without undue encroachment by the government. Under his legislation, which passed the Texas House last month, these institutions can now proceed without fear of state pressure to compromise their doctrinal prerogatives. Faith-based social service institutions exist to serve [...]

Under the guise of "anti-discrimination," a pro-abortion California assemblywoman is pushing a bill that would bar faith-based codes of conduct for employees of religious organizations. AB 569 specifically targets codes of conduct involving employees' "reproductive health care decisions," such as abortion and contraception.

The star witness in the Philadelphia D.A.'s ongoing witch-hunt against the Catholic Church has been totally discredited. The D.A.'s office had relied heavily on the incredulous claims of Danny Gallagher, a.k.a. "Billy Doe," to send three priests and a Catholic school teacher to prison. But retired Detective Joseph Walsh—the prosecution's own lead investigator into Gallagher's lurid [...]
