POPE STEPS LEFT AND RIGHT

Catalyst January/February Issue 2014

The following article by Bill Donohue was published by Newsmax on November 27: Pope Francis has an uncanny ability to excite the passions of the left and the right; he has done so again in his apostolic exhortation, “The Joy of the Gospel.” The pope begins by outlining his principal interest, evangelization, calling on us to avoid being... [Read more...]

HHS MANDATE QUESTIONED

BIGOTED PLAY PERFORMED IN OKLAHOMA CITY

Catalyst January/February Issue 2014

“The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told” opened in early December at the Oklahoma City Civic Center; and lasted until Dec. 22.

“PHILOMENA” IS PURE PROPAGANDA

Catalyst January/February Issue 2014

The movie “Philomena” recently opened in movie theaters across the United States. A half-century ago, an Irish woman gave birth to a son out-of-wedlock, and gave him up for adoption; he was born in an abbey, a venue that allowed the mother to avoid being stigmatized. There is nothing particularly startling about this, other than the fact... [Read more...]

MEDIA BIAS NEVER STOPS

POPE BRANDED GAY PERVERT

Catalyst January/February Issue 2014

A recent edition of “Chelsea Lately” on E! was particularly vicious. The pretext to the vulgar comments made by Chelsea Handler, and guests Dan Levy and Josh Wolf, was the news that Pope Francis was once a bouncer, and rumors that he sneaks out at night to feed the poor. Handler: “It’s a very popey thing to do, to help the homeless;... [Read more...]

Catalyst January/February Issue 2014

Now that Pope Francis has set up a commission to study priestly sexual abuse, Bill Donohue urged reporters to get their facts straight: Myth: Children have been the main victims of priestly sexual abuse.
