INTERPRETING ABORTION DATA

Catalyst January/February Issue 2013, From The President's Desk

From The President’s Desk William A. Donohue The most controversial social issues of our day, namely abortion and gay marriage, are overwhelmingly funded and researched by those who are advocates for these causes.

MASTERS OF INTOLERANCE

Catalyst November Issue 2012, From The President's Desk

FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK  William A. Donohue Why is it that the same people who boast of their open-mindedness tend to be the most close-minded of all?

Worse still are examples... [Read more...]

GENESIS OF A BOOK

Catalyst June Issue 2012, From The President's Desk

FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK  William Donohue A few years ago, I was put in touch with an editor at Doubleday/Random House, Trace Murphy, about a book I wanted to do. After I explained to him what I wanted to write about, he gave me a polite response. Which meant, of course, that he really wasn’t interested in my proposal. He took the occasion, however,... [Read more...]

MISERABLE CATHOLICS

Catalyst May Issue 2012, From The President's Desk
