Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the response to the New York Times ad that ran on Monday:
The response to our ad, “Straight Talk About the Catholic Church,” has been so overwhelming that we are running it again this Sunday in the Chicago Tribune. We’ve heard from bishops, priests and religious, as well as lay people, and they are very happy about our statement.
The letters of support, as well as the donations and surprise gifts, are very much appreciated. That is why we are delighted to bring our message to the Chicago area.
