CNN SMEARS POPE

Catalyst November Issue 2010, Front Page

CNN’s September 25 one-hour special was nothing more than an extension of what the New York Times tried to do last spring: blame Pope Benedict XVI personally for the sexual abuse scandal.

RESPONSE TO CNN DOCUMENTARY ON THE POPE

Catalyst November Issue 2010, Essay

TIME GOES BATTY FOR WOMEN “PRIESTS”

Catalyst November Issue 2010

Recently, the website of Time magazine has featured articles on the absence of women clergy in the Catholic Church. It is one thing for Time to be intoxicated with the fiction of women priests, quite another for it to enlist on an agenda.
