JESUS AND POPE CALLED PIMPS

Catalyst September 2014

Here is what Joan Rivers and Bill Maher had to say on recent episodes of their television shows: Rivers: “First of all, let me just say, Kid Rock, when did he audition to play Jesus Christ Super Pimp?” Maher: “The pope is a pimp.

NEW FX SHOW SURE TO FLOP

Catalyst September 2014

A new sitcom on FX starring Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence sounded like it could be promising, but the first episode of “Partners” that recently aired proved to be little more than a bigoted attack on priests and the Catholic Church. Even the New York Times called the show “painful” and said “the proceedings mostly... [Read more...]

HIP “BLACK JESUS” TV SHOW AIRS

Catalyst September 2014

A few weeks ago, the premiere episode of “Black Jesus,” aired on the Cartoon Network. The Catholic League has long taken the position that portraying Jesus as black is fine with the Catholic League, and indeed we find it silly that anyone would object.

CATHOLIC-BASHING PLAY BOMBS

Catalyst September 2014

“Doubtless” is a play by Albert Innaurato that was performed in New York City. It started August 4 and it closed August 30.

The play’s name is a rip-off of the John Patrick... [Read more...]

POPE’S REMARKS ON IMMIGRANTS WELCOME

Catalyst September 2014

There are those on the right and the left who have misrepresented what the pope has said about the immigration crisis. Understandably, those on both sides of this issue are unhappy with the pope’s comments, but that is no excuse for distorting them. It may not please those on the right to learn that the pope implores Americans to care for children... [Read more...]

VATICAN OKAYS FORCE IN MIDDLE EAST

Catalyst September 2014

The Catholic Church’s just-war doctrine allows for a military response to grave conflicts, provided that several criteria are operative. The Vatican has made it clear that the mass murder being committed by Islamic State terrorists meets that standard. No one has been more pointed than Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Holy See’s Permanent... [Read more...]

Bill Donohue Mass hysteria has gripped Ireland, England, and the United States over reports that nearly 800 bodies of children have been found in a mass grave outside a former home run by nuns in Tuam, near Galway.

We did an online survey of pub owners in several cities, and the results were as follows: •  75 report a decrease in sales •  24 report no difference •  4 report an increase From what we have determined, it appears that the decrease in sales is due to three factors: (a)... [Read more...]
