This is a shortened version of an article posted on CNSNews.com that was written by Bill Donohue. Michelle Carter has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for encouraging her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, to kill himself.

DONOHUE DEFENDS DAWKINS

Whenever Bill Donohue writes about Richard Dawkins, it is to criticize some anti-Catholic remark he has made. He has written a fair amount about him. This time Donohue was on his side. Dawkins was denied the opportunity to express his views on KPFA: the radio station reneged on its invitation to interview him. Here is how [...]

WHY THE LEFT DEFENDS ISLAMISTS

By | 2017-09-20T20:36:58+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It continues to confound liberals and conservatives alike: Why would the Left defend Islamists? The latest victim of this fascinating alliance is Richard Dawkins, the English left-wing atheist who was disinvited by a Berkeley left-wing radio station after it was discovered that Dawkins said Islam is the world's "most evil" religion. It did not matter to [...]

Traditional Catholics and evangelical Christians have much in common, the latest example of which happened recently. Following an event on July 11th where U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions addressed the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), ABC News, NBC News, and CNN smeared ADF, portraying it as a hate group. Donohue quickly came to the defense of ADF [...]

CATHOLIC DEMOCRATS TRASH EWTN

By | 2017-09-20T20:36:58+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Steven A. Krueger, president of Catholic Democrats, lashed out at EWTN branding it a "Catholic-right media outlet" akin to the extremist outfit, Church Militant. The latter is a screwball website with little or no influence. EWTN is a well respected source of Catholic teaching and commentary, one that has won the plaudits of many bishops, as [...]

Rep. Ben Ray Luján, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told The Hill on July 31 that when it comes to abortion, "There is not a litmus test for Democratic candidates."

Most atheists are not terrified by religion, but the activists in their ranks are in a state of hysteria these days. Prominent among them is the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). FFRF has written a threatening letter to Dan Hughes, mayor of Henderson County in Tennessee. The issue? A biblical verse from Psalms etched in the [...]

CATHOLIC BASHING IS OKAY; OTHER INSULTS ARE NOT

By | 2017-07-24T20:07:36+00:00 July 24th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

A rash of obscene insults targeting God, Catholicism, President Trump, and African Americans took place in the spring. The guilty parties were all prominent members of the cultural elite. The good news is that the assaults on President Trump and African Americans generated considerable moral outrage. The bad news is that the Catholic League stood virtually [...]

The U.S. Supreme Court delivered a big win for religious liberty in its June 26 ruling in Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer. At issue was whether the state has a right to deny public funds to a religious entity when the disbursement is for a secular purpose. In other words, is it constitutional to treat a [...]
