The Catholic League continued its ad campaign against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) by placing a half-page ad in today’s edition of Roll Call, the influential D.C. publication. Catholic League president William Donohue said that nothing will stop the league from pressing the DNC to sever its association with an anti-Catholic organization. By providing a link to Catholics for a Free Choice on its website, the DNC is tacitly endorsing Catholic bashing.
The campaign against the DNC picked up steam last week when it was revealed that the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has also implored the DNC to break its support for Frances Kissling’s anti-Catholic group.
The league’s ad has already run in three Catholic weekly newspapers, the National Catholic Register, Our Sunday Visitor and the Wanderer; Roll Call marks the first secular publication to run the ad. The text of the ad appears below.
DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE
On the website of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), there is a link to organizations of interest. Astonishingly, under the “Catholic” banner is a notoriously anti-Catholic organization, Catholics for a Free Choice (CFFC). The head of this group, Frances Kissling, has said it is her goal to “overthrow” the Catholic Church. Moreover, she has sought to silence the voice of the Vatican in the U.N. and has twice been denounced by the bishops as a fraud.
We have asked the DNC to stop its association with CFFC but it refuses. That is why we are asking you to join our campaign. Let the DNC know of your outrage by calling them at 202-863-8000; fax at 202-863-8174; email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
