WHERE SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IS HEADED

By | July 25th, 2011|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

In light of New York recently passing a law allowing homosexuals to marry, we commented on where we see the issue heading. Whenever the American people have had a chance to approve gay marriage, they have rejected it. In the more than 30 states that have put this issue to a vote, homosexuals have never won. [...]

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

By | July 25th, 2011|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Prior to the passing of the New York State bill legalizing same-sex marriage, we issued a news release stating that New York does not believe in “power to the people.” If it did, it would have submitted the issue of redefining marriage to a ballot initiative. Had they done this, however, they knew that they would [...]

TIME TO GET BLUNT ON SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

Before the New York State legislature decided whether to ratify homosexual marriage, we thought it would be nice if the lawmakers would ask what in the world is going on in the gay community. A June report issued by the NYC Health Department, “Take Care New York 2012: Tracking the City’s Progress,” showed that while progress [...]

By | July 25th, 2011|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Priests who engage in lewd conversations with teenagers are suspended from ministry for committing a “boundary violation,” and are charged with sexual abuse. But disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner can send pornographic pictures of himself to young girls and he is free as a bird. Indeed, prior to his resignation, the majority of New Yorkers said that [...]

On a recent episode of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” the host joked about Rep. Anthony Weiner’s situation with correspondent John Oliver.

On the June 14 “Late Show with David Letterman,” the CBS host said he was “stunned” and “fascinated” by Anthony Weiner’s predicament.

Recently, the Boston Globe responded to Cardinal Sean O’Malley’s decision to halt a Mass honoring Gay Pride Month at St. Cecilia’s in Boston. In an editorial, the Globe pretended that “No one would have had the misimpression that the church was endorsing gay sex” by allowing the Mass to be said. Columnist Kevin Cullen also played the role of virgin, [...]

“DR. DEATH” DIES A NATURAL DEATH

By | July 25th, 2011|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

We recently commented on the death of assisted-suicide physician Dr. Jack Kevorkian. Unlike his lucky “patients,” “Dr. Death” Kevorkian died of natural causes, wholly unassisted by physicians. He had much in common with the doctors of Weimar, Germany, who perfected the sick idea of “Healing by Killing.” Kevorkian, whose favorite motto was, “Ready or not, here [...]

At their June meeting outside of Seattle, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) passed a statement on physician-assisted suicide much to the chagrin of the “Aid in Dying” crowd.  Those who delight in helping people die like to invoke the values of compassion and choice. Indeed, Compassion and Choices (C&C) is the name of [...]
