SHOWTIME BOYCOTT UNDERWAY

Catalyst July/August Issue 2001

In the last edition of Catalyst, we ran the entire ad that appeared in Variety asking Viacom CEO Sumner Redstone to join with us in condemning Showtime for producing the anti-Catholic movie, “Sister Mary Explains It All” (Showtime is owned by Viacom). Showtime issued a lame statement simply saying they do not believe in promoting intolerance. As a result, we are calling for a boycott of Showtime.

It is important that all Catholic League members who subscribe to Showtime drop their subscription and join our boycott. Those who do not get Showtime are urged to write to Redstone and let him know what you think of his passivity. You can do so by writing to Sumner Redstone, CEO Viacom, 1515 Broadway, New York, New York 10036.
