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 [...]

POLITICIZING CHRISTMAS; REVOLT AGAINST INTOLERANCE

By | January 26th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

No religious holiday sparks as much controversy as Christmas. It's not because most Americans are anti-Christmas—they are not. It's because so many activists, public officials, and educators are working against them. Quite frankly, they have unnecessarily politicized Christmas. Some of them are bigots; some are ignorant of what the courts have ruled; and some are simply [...]

AFFIRMING GENOCIDE

By | January 26th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The whole world knows that Christians have been targeted for genocide by radical Muslims, yet we still don't have a congressional resolution, supported by our president, affirming this reality. A week before Christmas a group of congressmen, from both parties, along with noted scholars and activists, assembled in Washington D.C. to press for a resolution. Specifically, [...]

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT CHALLENGED; WE RESPOND QUICKLY

By | December 18th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The animus against Christmas manifests itself in a myriad of ways, and this year is no exception. We took a pass on some trivial issues, but we jumped right into the fray when more serious attacks were launched. The anti-Christmas bigots from the Freedom From Religion Foundation threatened a lawsuit against a small Minnesota town because [...]

HHS MANDATE UNDER REVIEW

By | December 18th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The United States Supreme Court has agreed to hear a challenge to the constitutionality of the Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate that threatens to eviscerate the religious liberties of many Catholic non-profits. Not surprisingly, editorials in the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times took the side of the Obama administration. We pointed out [...]

NEW YORK TIMES MALIGNS SAINT; NO EVIDENCE PROVIDED

By | November 18th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

On September 30, when Bill Donohue read a New York Times front-page story on Saint Junípero Serra, he could hardly believe his eyes. The 17th century priest, who championed the rights of Indians, had just been canonized by Pope Francis the week before. So it came as a shock to read that he was accused of [...]

SYNOD SHOWS SPUNK

By | November 18th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The Synod of Bishops has concluded in Rome. Occasionally contentious, it succeeded in addressing a wide range of issues that touch on the family. Most agree that a lot of spunk was shown. Pope Francis will have the final say. The Holy Father got the Synod off to a good start with his opening homily. The [...]

POPE AND PREZ MEET; OBAMA INVITES CHURCH’S FOES

By | October 22nd, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

On September 23, Pope Francis met with President Obama in the White House. The meeting was amicable. Incredibly, those invited by the president to be there were some of the most notorious foes in the Church. It is so fitting that the least friendly administration to religion in history would invite a collection of pro-abortion nuns, [...]

On September 23, Bill Donohue, and vice president Bernadette Brady-Egan, met with Pope Francis following a prayer service at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in Washington, D.C. It was an honor they will never forget. The invitation to meet the pope was extended by Donald Cardinal Wuerl. He also invited them to the canonization [...]
