CHRISTMAS WAR STALEMATE; VICTORIES ON BOTH SIDES

Catalyst January/February Issue 2015, Front Page

The annual “War on Christmas” continued in 2014 with both sides having achieved roughly the same number of wins and losses. This is certainly an improvement over the days when the anti-Christmas side appeared to be winning this battle in the culture war. The good news is that the pro-Christmas side has been pushing back, even reversing previous... [Read more...]

HBO MENTIONS DONOHUE

Catalyst January/February Issue 2015, Front Page

In the finale of the HBO show, “The Newsroom,” which aired December 14, there was an exchange between Will McAvoy, the anchor/news director (played by Jeff Daniels), and Charlie Skinner, the network president (played by Sam Waterston). They managed to drop Bill Donohue’s name. The subject of discussion was Pope Benedict XVI. Skinner... [Read more...]

WALMART BOWS TO PRESSURE; ONLINE PROTEST SCORES

Catalyst December Issue 2014, Front Page

It only took a couple of days for Walmart to buckle. Under pressure by the Catholic League to pull three indefensible Catholic Halloween costumes, the megastore did just that. Had it not been for those who receive our email news releases, and who let Walmart know of their displeasure, there would have been no victory. A few days before Halloween, Walmart,... [Read more...]

SANITIZING SANTA

Catalyst December Issue 2014, Front Page

The politically correct police are always out in force during the Christmas season, and this year they made an early splash in Marshfield, Massachusetts and Montgomery County, Maryland. In Marshfield, the School Committee decided it would not listen to its constituency: it voted 3-2 against changing “Holiday Break” back to “Christmas... [Read more...]

FLORIDA BISHOP RIPPED BY FOES; DISSIDENTS ON THE MARCH

Catalyst November Issue 2014, Front Page

Dissident lay Catholics in Southwest Florida, along with some priests, have declared war on Bishop Frank Dewane. He is the Bishop of Venice and is by all accounts a loyal son of the Church. Which is why they are out to get him. Dewane is drawing the ire of Catholic malcontents, and ex-Catholics, because of his orthodoxy. His critics are largely drawn... [Read more...]

BIGOTED LAWYER LOSES

Catalyst November Issue 2014, Front Page

The Supreme Court of Wisconsin recently responded to the 2011 grievance filed by the Catholic League against attorney Rebekah M. Nett. We asked that she be investigated for making stridently anti-Catholic remarks against United States Bankruptcy Judge Nancy Dreher, and others. We are happy to report that she has lost her license for a year. The formal... [Read more...]

WE WILL NOT MARCH; NYC PARADE DEBACLE GROWS

Catalyst October 2014, Front Page

The Catholic League, which has marched in New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade for 20 years, will not do so in 2015. Prior to the announcement that a gay group would march under its own banner in the 2015 parade, Bill Donohue was consulted by parade organizers about their plans. He told them that he could only support this decision if... [Read more...]

CALIFORNIA SQUEEZE

Catalyst October 2014, Front Page

California Governor Jerry Brown and his administration recently caved into requests from pro-abortion groups and reversed an earlier decision that allowed Santa Clara and Loyola Marymount universities to exclude coverage for “elective” abortions in their previously approved health insurance plans. Both schools are now being told to include... [Read more...]

CHRISTIAN GENOCIDE UNFURLS; JIHADISTS ON THE MARCH

Catalyst September 2014, Front Page

The Middle East is coming apart as murderous Muslim madmen move from nation to nation killing everyone who does not accept their twisted beliefs. Christians, Jews, Kurds, the Yezidi—even Muslims who differ with them—are being slaughtered. Children are being beheaded, crucifixions are rampant, and monasteries are being ransacked, all in the name... [Read more...]

D.C. LIBRARY PIVOTS

Catalyst September 2014, Front Page

Over the summer we learned that the Library of Congress had scheduled a presentation titled, “The Book and the Reformation,” sponsored by the Rare Book and Special Collections Division. We certainly did not object to an event on the Reformation, but what caught our eye was the way the Library of Congress flagged it. The flyer it disseminated... [Read more...]
