GUESS WHO’S NOW ATTACKING THE DUGGARS?

Sarah Palin, and her daughter Bristol, have rightly slammed the mainstream media for bashing the Duggars as hypocrites while continuing to laud Lena Dunham, the celebrity who sexually molested her own sister.

GLAMORIZING BRUCE JENNER IS RISKY

Catalyst July/August Issue 2015

The following article written by Bill Donohue was published by Newsmax on June 3, 2015. Only a cruel person would wish Bruce Jenner ill-will now that he has morphed into Caitlyn Jenner.

POPE FRANCIS AND BRUCE JENNER

Catalyst July/August Issue 2015

Pope Francis did not comment on Bruce Jenner’s transformation, but we are not without clues as to what he may have thought.

CELEBS ARE OBLIGED TO BE BIGOTED

Catalyst July/August Issue 2015

Many celebrities will do anything to show how utterly welcoming they are of men and women who are in rebellion against their own nature—they applaud every time someone gets Jennerized.

During a recent episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO, host Bill Maher said Christians have no basis to complain about being defamed or discriminated against because they constitute a majority of the nation. “Seventy percent of the country is Christian, not to mention every president we’ve ever had,” he said.
