WE DIDN’T TAKE THE BAIT

Catalyst September Issue 1999

As the reputation of the Catholic League grows, so, too, do attempts to bait us. Two recent examples are worth noting. In a review of Spike Lee’s movie, “Summer of Sam” (based on the story of the New York killer, Son of Sam), film critic John Anderson described elements of the movie that seemed to promote a negative stereotype of Catholics,... [Read more...]

TABOO ART ANYONE?

Catalyst September Issue 1999

On the north side of Chicago, in Wrigleyville, there is fetish lingerie store called Taboo-Tabou. Located in the “Alternative Shopping Complex” (a red flag for sure), the kinky establishment featured a mannequin dressed as a nun (in full habit) spanking a naked woman. A woman from Chicago obtained pictures of this “art.” The... [Read more...]

IT’S ALL IN THE NAME

Catalyst September Issue 1999

On June 23, the Catholic League ran an op-ed page ad in the New York Times that called on Disney to dump Miramax, its anti-Catholic subsidiary, the same way it dumped “Dogma.” In the ad, reference was made to Bob and Harvey Weinstein, the co-chiefs at Miramax who purchased the film after Michael Eisner of Disney put the arm on them. And... [Read more...]

WE’LL PAY FOR IT

Catalyst September Issue 1999

One of the more prestigious schools in the nation’s capital is the National Cathedral School. Not too long ago, the expensive Protestant prep school threw its Third Annual Celebration Dinner.

MAINE’S SEX COPS

Catalyst September Issue 1999

Monique Dostie runs a group home for the mentally retarded in Lewiston, Maine. Her house rules include a prohibition on pornography and sexual activity, a condition that none of her residents object to. Indeed, some of their guardians deliberately chose to put them in Dostie’s home because they liked her house rules. But the bureaucrats thinks differently... [Read more...]

KILLERS FOR HIRE

Catalyst September Issue 1999

Catholics for a Free Choice (CFFC) wouldn’t exist were it not for the anti-Catholic bigots at the Ford Foundation and other centers of Catholic bashing in the philanthropic world. Whenever CFFC gets money dumped on it, new positions become available. That is why over the summer CFFC was advertising for a Director of International Programs, Director... [Read more...]

CATHOLIC WAR VETERANS

ENVOY

Catalyst September Issue 1999

A really excellent publication is Envoy, a magazine of Catholic apologetics. Unfortunately, some who have recently received our direct mail survey that lists the Hunter College publication of the same name mistakenly thought that it was the classy apologetics magazine that printed obscene and blasphemous material. The real Envoy, run by Matthew Pinto,... [Read more...]
