THE POLITICIZATION OF “SPOTLIGHT”

Catalyst April Issue 2016

The movie “Spotlight” was being politicized before it even hit theaters. That, not the movie itself, was always our concern, and that politicization has continued. On the day of the Oscars several weeks ago, actor Mark Ruffalo, one of the stars in the movie, led a rally outside the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles.... [Read more...]

TRUMP VOWS TO PROTECT CHRISTIANITY

Catalyst March Issue 2016

A few weeks ago, Donald Trump went on a tear at Liberty University. “We’re going to protect Christianity,” he said. This needs to be done because “Christianity is under siege.” He noted that in Syria, “if you’re Christian, they’re chopping heads, they’re under siege!” Aside from addressing... [Read more...]

TRUMP’S SPOKESWOMAN MUST APOLOGIZE

Catalyst March Issue 2016

On December 18, 2011, Donald Trump’s national spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson sent the following tweet: “Just saw a commercial from Catholic Church stating that Catholic Church was started by Jesus. I bet they believe that too.” No one makes a comment like this without harboring an animus against Catholicism. It would be instructive to... [Read more...]

IS DONALD TRUMP ANTI-CATHOLIC?

Catalyst March Issue 2016

The Catholic League never condemns anyone for expressing disagreement, in a reasonable manner, with a public policy position taken by the Catholic Church or a Church leader. Thus we have no reason to condemn Donald Trump for simply expressing his disagreement with Pope Francis on the issue of immigration. Yet we have the spectacle of Niall O’Dowd,... [Read more...]

ELITE DON’T GET TRUMP’S APPEAL

The following article by Bill Donohue was recently published by Newsmax. In 1972, Pauline Kael, film critic for the New Yorker, famously said after the presidential election, “I can’t believe Nixon won.

CARDINAL WUERL ADDRESSES VIOLENCE

Catalyst March Issue 2016

At President Obama’s State of the Union address, there was an empty seat, purposely set aside, in the First Lady’s guest box: it represented the victims of gun violence. Those who are seriously interested in this issue might want to ponder the cultural reasons why violence is so prevalent in our society. Cardinal Wuerl offered great insight... [Read more...]

CHILD-ABUSING BIGOTS ENDORSE HILLARY

Catalyst March Issue 2016

NARAL Pro-Choice America endorsed Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. It supports letting infants born of a botched abortion die unattended by doctors. Hillary said she was “honored” by the endorsement. The vast majority of Americans are opposed to the current abortion policy which allows abortions to be performed... [Read more...]

OBAMA OPPOSES RELIGIOUS PROFILING?

Catalyst March Issue 2016

President Obama implored us to “reject any politics that targets people because of race or religion.” Regrettably, his opposition to religious profiling cannot be taken seriously. If anything, his administration has contributed to it. The Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate is a classic case of religious profiling. Not only does it cherry... [Read more...]
