NUNS AND OBAMACARE

Catalyst June Issue 2012

Critics of Vatican efforts to reform the LCWR have their talking points down in lockstep so well that everyone now just assumes that the reform initiative was triggered by concerns over these nuns pushing for ObamaCare.

CHURCH BASHERS RALLY FOR NUNS

VATICAN CRITICS GET LOOPY

Catalyst June Issue 2012

This month, some of the Vatican’s critics tried to defend the indefensible. Only 3% of the 55,000 nuns in the U.S. actually belong to the LCWR. One would never know this by reading the secular press. But facts don’t matter to those gone loopy. Joan Vennochi of the Boston Globe wanted to know why the pope doesn’t “crack down on protectors of... [Read more...]

ELMHURST COLLEGE WELCOMES BIGOT

Catalyst June Issue 2012

GEORGETOWN DISCREDITS ITSELF

Catalyst June Issue 2012

The invitation of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to speak at Georgetown University is yet another indication of that school’s compromised Catholic identity.

MICHAEL COREN SCORES AGAIN

Catalyst June Issue 2012

Bill Donohue: “There are few Catholic writers in North America who are as appealing as Michael Coren, and when it comes to demonstrating wit on TV, the Canadian host is in a league of his own. His new book, Heresy: Ten Lies They Spread About Christianity, is as entertaining as his previous work, Why Catholicism is Right. Indeed, it is a gem.”  Read More →
