By | 2017-04-03T12:28:54+00:00 March 31st, 2017|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue In its reporting on Ireland's "mass grave" story, the New York Times has been one of the only media outlets in the nation not to buy into this hoax. Indeed, the 2014 story by Douglas Dalby blew holes in the account rendered by Catherine Corless, the person responsible for making this unsubstantiated accusation. He [...]

Bill Donohue "There is more free speech in pubs than on the typical college campus." That is what I told Rollins College president Grant Cornwell on March 28, the day I first addressed the suspension of student Marshall Polston. Rollins has now reinstated the student. This issue may be over for Polston—he courageously stood up to [...]

ROLLINS COLLEGE AND ORLANDO SENTINEL

By | 2017-03-31T14:28:30+00:00 March 30th, 2017|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue Yesterday, I raised many questions about the account given by Rollins College officials in their handling of the dispute between Marshall Polston, the student who was suspended, and his professor, Areej Zufari. Some of what I drew on came from a story by Orlando Sentinel reporter Gabrielle Russon. She did a fine job. Inexplicably, [...]

On March 27, I posted an article written by an orphan who grew up in a Mother and Baby Home in Ireland. It is a well-written and researched account of conditions in Ireland in the twentieth century, and the care provided by nuns. It also debunks the myths about those "evil" nuns, the kind of propaganda [...]

IRELAND’S “HOMES” RECONSIDERED

By | 2017-03-27T20:01:17+00:00 March 27th, 2017|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue We have become so accustomed to boilerplate accounts of Ireland's Mother and Baby Homes that even the most absurd accusations leave us numb. This is wrong. Indeed, it is dangerous. It is also born of blind hatred of all things Catholic. Those who are making wild-eyed accusations consider themselves tolerant and open-minded, yet they [...]

Bill Donohue The circus continues. Judge Gwendolyn N. Bright of the Common Appeals Court denied a motion to dismiss the case against Msgr. William Lynn. A retrial is expected in May, though Lynn's lawyer, Thomas Bergstrom, says he may appeal the ruling. Judge Bright added to this classic case of jurisprudential corruption when she said that [...]
