MEDIA DISTORT POPE’S WORDS

June 25, 2015

Bill Donohue comments on media reports regarding Pope Francis’ address yesterday at the weekly General Audience: Reports are flying around the Internet that Pope Francis is now promoting divorce as “morally necessary.” From the Huffington Post to the New York Post, they are saying that the pope is championing divorce. They are all... [Read more...]

June 24, 2015

Bill Donohue comments on a Public Religion Research Institute survey: Are Christians discriminated against in a nation that is over 70 percent Christian? The public seems to think so. Here is the question posed to respondents: “In America today, discrimination against Christians has become as big a problem as discrimination against other groups.” By... [Read more...]

NBC NBC NOW DEMANDS SECRECY

June 23, 2015

Bill Donohue comments on how NBC is handling the Brian Williams controversy: NBC has its chief news anchor go rogue, and instead of commissioning an independent investigation, it does an in-house probe.

POPE URGES ENVIRONMENTAL REFORMS

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. It is a story worth exploring. But an even juicier story is the decades-long rejection of papal authority by Catholic Democrats... [Read more...]

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. But Wehmeyer is not a pedophile: as with almost all molesting priests—more than 80 percent of them—he is a homosexual. In 2010, Wehmeyer... [Read more...]
