PENN & TELLER EXPLODE; CBS AT FAULT
October 16th, 2009 | Catalyst Online, Front Page

The August 27 episode of Showtime’s Penn & Teller program will go down in history as one of the ugliest assaults on Catholics, or any other group, ever to air on television.

October 16th, 2009 | Catalyst Online, Features

Yale University has disgraced itself. Even those with no connection to the prestigious Ivy League institution are rightly angry at the hypocrites who run the university.  Here’s what happened. In 2006, a Danish newspaper printed some inoffensive cartoons of Muhammad. None was obscene and none came close to the kind of incredibly disgusting portrayals... [Read more...]

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the mad rush to defend Roman Polanski: The Catholic League has long suspected that, in many quarters, the outrage over priestly sexual abuse has had more to do with the status of the accused than the crime itself. Now the evidence is indisputable: a child can be drugged, penetrated and sodomized—and... [Read more...]


Emulating the European Model: Prescription for Failure
September 22nd, 2009 | Special Reports

Special Report by Bill Donohue September 2009 To say the Obama administration is enamored of the European model would be an understatement—it positively adores it. That’s why the “Change You Can Believe In” crowd is in full gear trying to mimic their economic system, the most visible example of which is its health care program. If only the... [Read more...]

CULTURE AT WAR

L. Brent Bozell III In my line of work you can be on the receiving end of some pretty interesting mail. When it’s a manila envelope without a return address, if it isn’t anthrax, it’s some nut’s compilation of faded newspaper articles dating back to the 60s allegedly proving some bizarre point; or even worse, it’s a manuscript; or worse still,... [Read more...]

September 10th, 2009 | Latest News Releases

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on President Obama’s speech last night on health care reform: Yesterday, I said the president would not mention abortion in his speech.
