ONLINE AUCTION HOUSE OFFENDS CATHOLICS

Catalyst May Issue 2005

Imagine an auction where someone puts a consecrated Host up for bidding. This is exactly what happened in April when eBay, the giant online auction house, decided to post this item.

After William Donohue wrote the following letter, he got a call from a top eBay official saying they are now sensitive to our concerns. He said they post four million items a day, and that the Host was sold before they could decide what to do. The conversation, though not conclusive, was productive.
