Catholic-affiliated health services account for more than 600 hospitals, 200 health care centers, and 1,500 specialized care facilities (i.e. drug treatment centers). These health care operatives serve 50 million patients annually. Since the early 1990s, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has [...]

The Bedford Cheese Shop, with outlets in Brooklyn and Manhattan, was the unlikely source of a filthy assault on Mother Teresa this summer. After we launched a vigorous protest, the offensive item was quickly withdrawn and an apology was granted. We got a tip from an outraged Catholic who visited the Manhattan store on July 26. [...]

A lawsuit designed to intimidate Bill Donohue and the Catholic League came to a screeching halt in August. We won. At every step of the way, a lawsuit filed by Rebecca Randles against Donohue and the Catholic League was knocked down by the courts. Donohue never libeled anyone, and she knows it. She is known as [...]

TRUMP WAS RIGHT TO BLAME BOTH SIDES

By | 2017-09-20T20:45:08+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

William A. Donohue President Trump was right to call out the extremists on both sides of the Charlottesville tragedy, but more needs to be said about those on the Left who helped to bring it about. The crazies on the Right—the KKK, the Neo-Nazis and the White Supremacists—have been justly condemned by virtually everyone, save for [...]

AUSTRALIA’S WAR ON CHRISTIAN KIDS

By | 2017-09-20T20:45:08+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

If it weren't for Cardinal George Pell, it would not matter a whole lot to the Catholic League if a free nation like Australia decided to emulate the totalitarian regime in North Korea. But he does matter, and that is why we are concerned. He has been the target of character assassins for a very long [...]

TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT “TRANSGENDERS”

By | 2017-09-20T20:36:57+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

President Trump's decision to ban so-called transgender persons from the military makes perfect sense: the armed forces exist to win wars—they are not a laboratory for social or sexual engineers. There is an underlying issue, however, that is much more serious. It's time for some straight talk. No one doubts that there are men who have, [...]
