“AN ACT OF GOD” CHARMS THE AUDIENCE

Catalyst July/August Issue 2015

A couple of weeks ago, a play known as “An Act of God” opened on Broadway. What’s not to like about another religion-bashing Broadway play? Studio 54, home of drug addicts, tramps, and celebrities in the 1970s, is the perfect venue for this gay-happy play starring Jim Parsons. Dressed in a white robe and red sneakers, he played God.... [Read more...]

FUROR OVER ISLAMIC CARTOONS; INCIVILITY DENOUNCED

Catalyst June Issue 2015, Front Page

Garland, Texas was home to an anti-Islam cartoon event last month that left two gunmen dead and one security guard wounded. Minutes before Elton Simpson started shooting, one of his supporters tweeted, “If there is no check on the freedom of your speech, then let your hearts be open to the freedom of our actions.” Simpson was shot dead quickly... [Read more...]

LETTERMAN EXITS

Catalyst June Issue 2015, Front Page

David Letterman’s last appearance on “The Late Show” was May 20. We were delighted to see him exit. Letterman’s departure was treated by the Hollywood crowd as a signature moment in television history. But no fair-minded person could ever come to that conclusion. Quite simply, the man is an anti-Catholic bigot. If anyone doubts... [Read more...]

WHO UNDERVALUES WOMEN?

Catalyst June Issue 2015, From The President's Desk

William A. Donohue We hear it all the time: the Catholic Church discriminates against women. As compared to which institutions? The Congress? Women comprise 18 percent of its members. Fortune 500 companies? Women account for only 5 percent of the chief financial officers. What about the Catholic Church? Of the top three diocesan positions—chancellor,... [Read more...]

EXCHANGE ON MARRIAGE WAS TROUBLING

Catalyst June Issue 2015

The oral arguments that were recently heard by the U.S. Supreme Court proved why the gay marriage issue is before the highest court in the nation: radical individualism and radical egalitarianism are the driving ideologies.

LOVE IS NOT ALL YOU NEED

Catalyst June Issue 2015

In the run-up to the U.S. Supreme Court’s oral arguments on same-sex marriage, a popular refrain voiced by its proponents sounded very much like the Beatles song, “Love Is All You Need.” But in real life, there is a whole lot more to marriage than love. Not only is love as a basis for marriage a relatively recent phenomenon—most... [Read more...]

IF ONLY ALL CHRISTIANS WERE GAY

Catalyst June Issue 2015

We know that President Obama is infinitely more sensitive to the concerns of Muslims than Christians. He cites Christians by name when he wants to blame them for some historical event, but he never mentions Muslims by name for their current slaughter of innocent Christians. His Secretary of State, John Kerry, is at one with him. Nine months ago, the... [Read more...]

PEW SURVEY: MEET THE “WHATEVERS”

Catalyst June Issue 2015

Recently, the Pew Research Center released a survey on religion. The bad news has already dominated media reports: more Americans are religiously unaffiliated than ever before. The ranks of Protestants and Catholics are declining, and the percentage of atheists and agnostics are increasing. This is true across age groups, though it is most pronounced... [Read more...]
