Catalyst April Issue 2014

“Secrets of the Vatican,” a 90 minute “Frontline” presentation,  marked the 48th time that PBS addressed sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.

MORE LIES ABOUT “PHILOMENA”

Catalyst April Issue 2014

Although the movie “Philomena” received four Oscar nominations, it did not win a single award. The film was shut out despite the fact that numerous lies were spread about it. The New York Times said it was a contender because one of its “advantages” was “its backing by the Weinstein Company, which even orchestrated an audience... [Read more...]

WHY IS DE BLASIO PUNISHING THE POOR?

Catalyst April Issue 2014

The following article by Bill Donohue was published by Newsmax on March 5:  When the Marxist Sandinistas ousted the Somoza family in Nicaragua in 1979, they dressed in Castro-like fatigues to show their solidarity with the poor.

HHS MANDATE BLOCKED

Catalyst March Issue 2014, Front Page

The U.S. Supreme Court has put the brakes on the infamous Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate that would force Catholic non-profits, and objecting private businessmen, to pay for abortion-inducing drugs, contraception, and sterilization. The issue has yet to be fully resolved. On January 24, the Supreme Court issued an injunction blocking enforcement... [Read more...]

ENVY DRIVES INEQUALITY ISSUE

Catalyst March Issue 2014, From The President's Desk

William A. Donohue When Pope Francis speaks about our “throwaway” abortion culture, or comments on marriage as a union between a man and a woman, he wins no points from those on the left. But when he speaks about income inequality, he is praised by the likes of President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. However, these... [Read more...]

ROLLING STONE LIKES THE POPE

Catalyst March Issue 2014

The February 13th cover story in Rolling Stone was a lengthy piece by Mark Binelli on Pope Francis. The article was respectful, though hardly without flaws. Like so many of the pope’s new fans, Binelli’s bouquets come at the price of exaggerating the Holy Father’s uniqueness, and unfairly characterizing his predecessors. Binelli likes... [Read more...]
