Bill Donohue He's back. Maurizio Cattelan, the nutty Italian artist who came out of retirement last year, is the subject of a docudrama by Maura Axelrod, "Be Right Back."

Bill Donohue A jury in a civil trial in Lincoln County, Missouri has exonerated Father Joseph Jiang of allegations that he had inappropriate contact with a high school girl back in 2012. The jury cleared the Archdiocese of St. Louis, which was also targeted in the lawsuit, of any wrongdoing as well. Hopefully, this will finally [...]

Bill Donohue  To the media in Ireland and England, and to some outlets in the United States, Catherine Corless is an Irish hero, a brave woman who uncovered a "mass grave" outside a Mother and Baby Home in Tuam, Ireland. She has been lavishly praised for her painstaking research, making her the most celebrated historian in [...]

THOSE “EVIL” IRISH NUNS

By | 2017-04-04T12:20:17+00:00 April 3rd, 2017|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue  This is the "President's Desk" article that appears in the April edition of the Catholic League journal, "Catalyst": When it comes to women, men have learned to be careful not to sound sexist or condescending. If they are perceived as such, they will be stigmatized. There is one exception: they can speak about traditional [...]

NETFLIX FEATURES ATHEIST O’HAIR

By | 2017-04-03T20:06:42+00:00 April 3rd, 2017|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue Netflix has released a docudrama on the founder of American Atheists, Madalyn Murray O'Hair, titled "The Most Hated Woman in America." It could very well have been called "The Most Wicked Woman in America." In 1963, O'Hair founded American Atheists; she succeeded in getting prayer thrown out of the public schools the same year. [...]

Bill Donohue Disney/ABC won't come right out and say it, so I will: The obituary for "The Real O'Neals" has been written, and will soon be announced. On January 18, I noted that over one million viewers who watched the ABC show which precedes the "O'Neals"—"Fresh Off the Boat"—turned to another channel. Thus did I declare, [...]

By | 2017-04-03T12:28:54+00:00 March 31st, 2017|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue In its reporting on Ireland's "mass grave" story, the New York Times has been one of the only media outlets in the nation not to buy into this hoax. Indeed, the 2014 story by Douglas Dalby blew holes in the account rendered by Catherine Corless, the person responsible for making this unsubstantiated accusation. He [...]

ROLLINS COLLEGE REINSTATES STUDENT

Bill Donohue "There is more free speech in pubs than on the typical college campus." That is what I told Rollins College president Grant Cornwell on March 28, the day I first addressed the suspension of student Marshall Polston. Rollins has now reinstated the student. This issue may be over for Polston—he courageously stood up to [...]

ROLLINS COLLEGE AND ORLANDO SENTINEL

By | 2017-03-31T14:28:30+00:00 March 30th, 2017|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue Yesterday, I raised many questions about the account given by Rollins College officials in their handling of the dispute between Marshall Polston, the student who was suspended, and his professor, Areej Zufari. Some of what I drew on came from a story by Orlando Sentinel reporter Gabrielle Russon. She did a fine job. Inexplicably, [...]

IRISH CENTRAL ATTACKS ORPHAN

By | 2017-03-30T17:49:40+00:00 March 30th, 2017|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

On March 27, I posted an article written by an orphan who grew up in a Mother and Baby Home in Ireland. It is a well-written and researched account of conditions in Ireland in the twentieth century, and the care provided by nuns. It also debunks the myths about those "evil" nuns, the kind of propaganda [...]
