C. Joseph Doyle has resigned as Operations Director of the Catholic League so that he can establish a new organization, the Catholic Action League of Massachusetts. Doyle said that the increased Catholic bashing that is evident in Massachusetts requires a full-time commitment to the problem. Unfortunately, the constraints of his job as Operations Director (overseeing the development of the new volunteer chapters of the Catholic League) did not enable him to make the kind of commitment he wanted.
Catholic League president William Donohue commented on Doyle’s resignation saying, ‘Joe did a great job for the Catholic League and his absence will surely be missed. I know that Joe has long been interested in tackling anti-Catholicism full-time in Massachusetts, and this will now give him that opportunity. We wish him well.”
Doyle’s departure means that League vice president Bernadette Brady will oversee chapter development.
