MEDIA IGNORE RELIGIOUS LIBERTY BILL

June 22, 2015

Bill Donohue comments on media reaction to the First Amendment Defense Act that was introduced last week in Congress: Given the fact that the media are eyeing a critical Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, it seems logical it would cover a bill that seeks to curb the reach of a decision that would be favorable to gay marriage.

June 18, 2015

Bill Donohue comments on Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si: Pope Francis wouldn’t be Pope Francis unless he was confounding his critics.

CATHOLIC POLITICIANS AND THE CHURCH

June 17, 2015

Bill Donohue comments on Catholic politicians and their religion: The media are awash with stories on the tension between Catholic GOP presidential candidates and their fidelity to Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment.

NEW YORK STATE WEIGHS PHONY ABUSE BILL

June 16, 2015

Bill Donohue comments on a proposed abuse bill in New York State: Every year New York Assemblywoman Margaret Markey introduces her bill lifting the statute of limitations on childhood sexual abuse, and every year she loses.

ANOTHER COVER-UP OF GAY ABUSERS

June 15, 2015

Bill Donohue comments on the resignation of St. Paul and Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt: Both the New York Times and AP reported today that Archbishop Nienstedt protected a pedophile priest, Curtis Wehmeyer.

POPE ATTACKS GENDER IDEOLOGY AGAIN

June 9, 2015

Bill Donohue comments on remarks made yesterday by Pope Francis to the bishops of Puerto Rico: Is Bruce Jenner on the pope’s mind? It seems that way. Why else would he attack gender ideology in a speech that had nothing to do with the thesis of his address? As I pointed out last week, Pope Francis has not been shy about condemning gender ideology.... [Read more...]
