THE NEED TO BE ENTERTAINED

By | April 18th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst Online, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

William A. Donohue Virtually everyone I know is sick and tired of the presidential debates, and it matters not a whit whether the person is a Republican or a Democrat.

Will Wilder and Me: The Quest For Literacy

By | April 18th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst Online, Essay|Tags: |

Raymond Arroyo You could say that the Will Wilder series, my first foray into fiction, started as a "soap opera." When they were younger, my children, during bath time would demand original stories for entertainment. To get them to advance to the next step in the bathing process, I would indulge the kids desire for new [...]

By | April 18th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst Online, Features|Tags: |

"The Real O'Neals," based on the life of a foul-mouthed, raging anti-Catholic bigot, Dan Savage, is blackening up Disney's Snow White image and tarnishing the reputation of its ABC network as well.

By | April 18th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst Online, Features|Tags: |

Bill Donohue comments on the preview episodes of "The Real O'Neals," which aired last night: "The Real O'Neals," Disney-ABC's portrayal of an Irish-Catholic family that was inspired by anti-Catholic bigot Dan Savage, kicked off with two previews last night; it officially debuted March 8.

The New York Times not only covered up for gay activists gone mad, it lied to its readers.

By | April 18th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst Online, Features|Tags: |

Four years ago, Ann Coulter flashed her political IQ by concluding that Mitt Romney was the most conservative candidate in the race. Her new hero is Donald Trump. That's fine, but what is not okay is her nasty tendency to rant against Catholicism. When the dustup between Trump and Pope Francis recently erupted, Coulter swung into [...]
