Out west, there is a place called Rough and Ready. There is even a English professor who lives there. We know this because Timothy May listed his home town in a piece he wrote for The Union, a newspaper from Grass Valley-Nevada City, California. He also listed his prejudice, namely anti-Catholicism. May was given great room to bash the Church that... [Read more...]SAGES WEIGH IN
Novelist John Irving was recently asked a hypotethical question: what would he outlaw? His response was “Visits to the country by the pope, unless he stops proselytizing. When he says that abortion is ‘an abominable crime, a senseless impoverishment of the person and not of society itself,’ he’s just blowing more right-to-life hot air; he...

The Catholic League has persuaded more newspapers not to run any more anti-Catholic ads by the Eternal Gospel SDA Church. We are delighted to report that the Los Angeles Newspaper Group, which comprises five major papers in Southern California, has agreed not to run the ads again. The ads are placed by Christians who quarrel with the Catholic Church’s... [Read more...]SILENCE ‘CORPUS CHRISTI’?
Yes, play is blasphemous by Rick Hinshaw “Freedom of speech,” goes the mantra from the arts crowd, as the Manhattan Theater Club – after reports in recent weeks that it was canceling a production – now declares its intention to offend Christians by staging a play that portrays Jesus as having sex with his apostles. But our... [Read more...]THEY REALLY DO HATE US
This past spring, while addressing the Orlando chapter of Legatus, I entered into a discussion with a man who questioned why there was so much Catholic bashing these days. I could have given him a long dissertation on the subject, but chose not to. Instead, I simply said, “Because they really do hate us.” He seem momentarily puzzled but...

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, located in Washington, D.C., has come under fire by several Jewish intellectuals for its unfair depictions of Christianity. Most of the criticism focuses on a 14 minute-movie, “Antisemitism,” which seeks to establish a direct link between the teachings of the Catholic Church and the Holocaust....

There must be some strange appetite out there for the commercial abuse of nun-like characters. The latest is a video game called “Sister Mary Lascivious.” An ad for this game appeared in the June issue of Ultra Gamplayers, a video game magazine by Imagine Media. It showed an illustration of a gun-waving, scantily clad buxom nun. Alongside... [Read more...]VINTAGE AAUP
Readers will recall that in March, our lead story dealt with the anti-Christian and anti-Semitic incidents that took place at the New Paltz campus of the State University of New York (SUNY) last year. The incidents occurred during a conference on “Revolting Behavior: The Challenges of Women’s Sexual Freedom.” The conference featured a... [Read more...]WAS ST. PAUL GAY?
Why the office of U.S. Patent and Trademark needs an Office of Civil Rights is not readily understood. Why that office has a Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transsexual subcommittee is even less understandable. Even more peculiar is why they have a need to sponsor the First Annual Gay Awareness Month Celebration. And all along we thought they worked on patents... [Read more...]YALE CASE ADVANCES
The Catholic League’s motion to file an amicus brief against Yale University has been granted in U.S. District Court. The league’s brief, which supports the right of Orthodox Jewish students to challenge Yale’s bizarre residency requirements (they must live on campus in sexually correct living quarters or buy their way out of this mandatory policy),...
