TRUMP RIPPED FOR RELIGION-FRIENDLY STANCE

By | 2017-03-22T17:27:00+00:00 March 22nd, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Neither President Donald Trump, nor his competitor, Hillary Clinton, are known for their devoutness, but unlike the loser, Trump is a reliable friend to people of faith. That is exactly why he recently came under fire from militant secularists. The latest hit job comes courtesy of the Center for American Progress. John Podesta founded the organization [...]

MACY’S UPDATE

By | 2017-03-22T17:27:00+00:00 March 22nd, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Our feud with Macy's may be coming to an end. Members recall that last year we led a campaign against the mega-department store chain for its firing of a Catholic Hispanic senior store detective, Javier Chavez, merely because he disagreed with the store's policy of allowing cross-dressing men to use the ladies room. Chavez was made [...]

HBO’S “THE YOUNG POPE” FLOPS

By | 2017-03-22T17:27:01+00:00 March 22nd, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

A new HBO series began January 15, "The Young Pope," and went nowhere. Dumb would be too kind a word to describe it. We could not resist noting that the series began on a Sunday during the football playoffs. "Most normal men and women will be watching the Packers-Cowboys game on Sunday," said Bill Donohue. He [...]

DeVOS WILL SHAKE THINGS UP

By | 2017-03-22T17:27:01+00:00 March 22nd, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Betsy DeVos, the new Secretary of Education, is feared by those who are afraid of change, afraid of breaking up the public school monopoly, and afraid of religious schools. She will shake things up, and it is about time. If the Ku Klux Klan were to devise a plan to keep poor blacks in poverty, they [...]

CHRISTMAS FOES ON THE RUN; PUSHBACK IS EVIDENT

By | 2017-03-20T17:45:42+00:00 January 25th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

There was a time when the Christmas haters were on the offensive, but now the pushback is in full gear. Our side is showing increasing resolve, and becoming more creative, even when we lose a legal battle. The Catholic League threw down the gauntlet when Oregon's Hillsboro School District censored Santa—not just Jesus—from any public display. [...]

BBC CREDITS PIUS XII

By | 2017-03-20T17:45:42+00:00 January 25th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The BBC has admitted that it was wrong to accuse Pope Pius XII of remaining "silent" during the Holocaust. The British media giant pivoted as a result of an internal probe of the pope's role. The revised position came in response to strong criticism of a BBC report last July that accused the pope of doing [...]

From The President's Desk William A. Donohue January/February 2017 Issue of Catalyst None of the three biggest vote getters in the primaries—Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sanders—are known for their deeply rooted religious convictions. Trump is Presbyterian and Clinton is a Methodist, and like many mainline Protestants, they are religion-lite; Sanders is an admitted secularist. [...]

SCHOOL CHOICE READY TO ROLL

By | 2017-03-20T17:45:43+00:00 January 25th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Essay|Tags: |

Bill Donohue The public school establishment had better fasten its seatbelts—the school choice movement is ready to roll. Donald Trump is committed to school reform and so are an increasing number of governors. Our new president will have as his new Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, a strong school choice proponent. She championed the Indiana voucher [...]

MICROSOFT’S LGBT CHRISTMAS AD

By | 2017-03-20T17:45:43+00:00 January 25th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Ask any schoolboy what the meaning of Christmas is, and he will say it celebrates the birth of Jesus. Ask the ideologues at Microsoft, and they will say it means whatever their politics dictate. This past year it represented an opportunity to exploit Christmas by pushing the LGBT agenda. Microsoft released a TV ad, "Art of [...]

“BAD SANTA 2” IS A CULTURAL MARKER

By | 2017-01-25T19:11:05+00:00 January 25th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It's a hard call which is worse: "Bad Santa 2" or its juvenile fans. By any measure, the movie, and its reception in many quarters, is proof positive that American culture is witnessing a race to the bottom. When the first "Bad Santa" was released in 2003, we described Santa as a "chain-smoking, drunken, foul-mouthed, suicidal, [...]
