BIG LOSS FOR VICTIMS’ LOBBY; PERSISTENCE PAYS OFF

By | August 1st, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The bill was sold as justice for the victims of sexual abuse, when, in fact, it was a sham: the proposed legislation that failed to make it to the floor of the New York State legislature in the wee hours of Saturday, June 18 (the session that began on Friday ended at 5:00 a.m. the next [...]

LIBERTY THWARTED

By | August 1st, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

As the Fourth of July approached, there were ominous signs that religious liberty is in deep trouble in America. On June 21, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) ruled that California can continue to force all health care plans—including those of religious institutions—to cover elective abortions. HHS simply disregarded the Weldon Amendment, enacted [...]

ABUSE LOBBY UPENDED; AGENDA EXPOSED

By | July 5th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The sexual abuse lobby, comprised of professional victims' advocates, descended on Albany, the New York capital, on May 3-4. But we beat them to the punch on May 2 with a full-page ad in the Albany Times-Union, exposing their agenda. They came from several states, all seeking to convince lawmakers that they need to lift the [...]

MOTHER ANGELICA R.I.P.

Mother Angelica died on Easter Sunday at the age of 92. She was, without a doubt, the most influential Catholic television personality of our time. While Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen was the first clergyman to put his imprint on television, Mother Angelica succeeded in a way no one else did: She created the first Catholic media [...]

“THE REAL O’NEALS” FALTERS; DAN SAVAGE GOES MUTE

By | April 18th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

ABC is in a jam and they know it. "The Real O'Neals" is not only stupid and offensive, it is in deep trouble trying to find an audience. The numbers don't lie: its ratings always trail the competition on CBS and NBC. A story posted by E! Online in mid-March said that the jury is out [...]

In 2014, the Catholic League signed an amicus brief in support of a Louisiana priest who refused to disclose to the authorities a conversation he had in the confessional. After losing in the State Supreme Court, the State District Court declared that Lousiana law could not force a priest to violate the seal of confession. Kudos [...]

DISNEY-ABC INSULT CATHOLICS; WE RESPOND WITH VIGOR

By | March 21st, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Last spring, Bill Donohue was contacted by Brent Bozell's Media Research Center to sign a petition protesting a new ABC sitcom, "The Real O'Neals." Though the show was not slated to air until this year, from what we could learn, it was clear that Catholics would be treated unfairly. After all, it was loosely based on [...]

DORITOS AD UPSETS NARAL

By | March 21st, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The Doritos Super Bowl ad that showed an ultrasound picture of a baby carried by the baby's mother was condemned by the pro-abortion group, NARAL, for "humanizing the fetus." It did just that. What else could it have done? As Scottish professor Malcolm Nicolson has said, ultrasound has a "humanizing effect" that is so powerful that [...]
