WHO’S CRAZIER?

Catalyst November Issue 2001

There has been no shortage of college professors willing to bash the U.S. for creating the “root causes” of the terrorist attacks on America.

Bill Donohue, who’s had his differences with Peyser, praised her for ripping the “Hate America First”... [Read more...]

HITCHENS’ MAD OBSESSION

Catalyst November Issue 2001

He’s at it again. Left-wing malcontent Christopher Hitchens has launched another attack on Mother Teresa. In the October edition of Vanity Fair, Hitchens explains that the Vatican invited him to make his case against the beatification of Mother Teresa. Given his mad obsession with her, it was not surprising that he took another opportunity to bash... [Read more...]

HOLOCAUST “HATE ART”

Catalyst November Issue 2001

No sane person denies the horror of the Holocaust or excuses those responsible for it. Unfortunately, it needs to be said time and again that it was the Nazis, and no one but the Nazis, who bear sole responsibility for what happened. Somebody needs to tell this to Fritz Hirschberger. The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center in Maitland,... [Read more...]

TORN OUT OF CONTEXT

Catalyst November Issue 2001

The New York Times recently ran two positive reviews of David Kertzer’s book, The Popes Against the Jews; one review was by Richard Bernstein and the other was by Garry Wills. Kertzer maintains that a long line of popes prepared the way for the Holocaust. Both men seize on the same quote taken from Kertzer to prove how malicious the Vatican was... [Read more...]

CATHOLIC BASHERS DELIVER “LIAM”

“Liam” is the story of a Depression-era Liverpool family seen through the eyes of a 7-year-old boy. The movie opened in select theaters on September 21 and was previewed that day by Catholic League research analyst Louis Giovino.

“MEGIDDO” LEAVES US WONDERING

Catalyst November Issue 2001

After the terrorist attacks of September 11, Hollywood decided to put “Megiddo: The Omega Code 2″ on ice. But not for long. Two weeks later it opened. Though the critics generally panned it, only one reviewer picked up on what disturbed the Catholic League. “Megiddo” bears no relation to “The Omega Code.” The plot... [Read more...]

CATHOLIC CHURCH BLAMED FOR BACKING “CLONES” OF ISLAMIC TERRORISTS

On September 20, the San Francisco Examiner published an article by one of its contributors, Kimberly Blaker, that accused the Catholic Church of organizing and supporting “clones” of Islamic terrorism.

TOLERANCE AND RELIGION

Catalyst November Issue 2001

The following is an excerpt from a new pamphlet by Toward Tradition; the organization is led by our friend, Rabbi Daniel Lapin. The pamphlet, “Terrorized by Tolerance,” was written by Adam Pruzan.

VIDEO ALTERED

Catalyst November Issue 2001

Over the past few years, we have received many complaints from New Yorkers regarding a video that all prospective jurors have to watch. The video contains a reenactment of a medieval “trial by ordeal” that reflects very badly on Catholicism. William Donohue wrote a letter of complaint to Judge Judith Kaye, chief judge of the New York State... [Read more...]
