POPE SPARKS CONTROVERSY http://www.catholicleague.org/pope-sparks-controversy/ http://www.catholicleague.org/pope-sparks-controversy/#comments Tue, 28 Jul 2015 18:29:25 +0000 http://www.catholicleague.org/?p=53754 Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si, ignited quite a reaction among fans and foes alike.

Donohue Mother Angelica built the most powerful Catholic media empire in American history, one so towering that it really has no rival anywhere in the world. The Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) is, without doubt, her greatest gift. It is a tragedy that she is not in better health—she is 92—to see the […]

Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on the refusal of the United Nations to punish sexual abuse committed by its peacekeeping missions.

Just as bad, it is keeping the report secret. Now consider its reporting on the Catholic Church. On 5-18-11, it reported that an independent investigation of the Church’s priest abuse scandal […]

It is a story worth exploring. But an even juicier story is the decades-long rejection of papal authority by Catholic Democrats in Washington on issues such as abortion. In recent years, […]

Marco Rubio told Rev. Pat Robertson that anyone who supports traditional marriage is being labeled “a homophobe and a hater.” He said “the next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, is hate speech….” Rubio did not exaggerate.
