IRELAND’S “HOMES” RECONSIDERED

By | 2017-03-27T20:01:17+00:00 March 27th, 2017|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue We have become so accustomed to boilerplate accounts of Ireland's Mother and Baby Homes that even the most absurd accusations leave us numb. This is wrong. Indeed, it is dangerous. It is also born of blind hatred of all things Catholic. Those who are making wild-eyed accusations consider themselves tolerant and open-minded, yet they [...]

Bill Donohue On last night's Comedy Central "Daily Show with Trevor Noah," the host abused a little girl and Pope Francis. It was the dirtiest assault on TV in some time. Even the audience winced at Noah's filthy attack. The show ran a video clip of a 3-year-old girl who was introduced to the pope. She [...]

CUT FUNDS TO NEA, NEH, NPR, PBS

Bill Donohue The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), National Public Radio (NPR), and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), are all subsidized by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). The Trump administration is right to propose a budget that completely guts these entities of federal funding. That is why I [...]

IS “O’NEALS” ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK?

By | 2017-03-22T15:41:26+00:00 March 21st, 2017|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue "The Real O'Neals" won't be on ABC tonight—its abbreviated season ended last week—and all indications are that this Dan Savage-inspired anti-Catholic show is in trouble. The show's ratings have been anemic from the start, a constant drain on ABC's Tuesday night viewership. From last October through its season finale last Tuesday night, it has [...]

Bill Donohue The heroics of St. Patrick are not appreciated as much as they should be. He is the first person in history to publicly condemn slavery, and one of the first leaders to champion the cause of equal rights. There is much to celebrate on March 17. Fortunately, his writings, though slim, are eye-opening accounts [...]

By | 2017-03-20T17:45:40+00:00 March 16th, 2017|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue comments on leading critics of the "mass grave" story and their positions on abortion and gay marriage: Not everyone who supports gay marriage favors abortion rights, but it is hard to find someone who is pro-abortion and opposed to same-sex marriage. This is especially true of activists. When it comes to leading critics of [...]
