HOW THE CATHOLIC LEAGUE GOT GORE TO CANCEL THE “GORGY”

By | September 26th, 2000|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

1.     Our first move was the letter Donohue sent to Gore on July 31. 2.     Our second move was a news release of August 2 that showed how two-faced Sanchez is: she complained about George W. Bush speaking at Bob Jones University but this didn’t stop her from arranging the “Gorgy” on the Feast of the [...]

“POLITICALLY INCORRECT” IS ANYTHING BUT

By | September 26th, 2000|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

If ever there were a misnomer of TV show, it is “Politically Incorrect.”  What host Bill Maher does night after night is rip the Catholic Church, which is anything but a politically incorrect thing to do.  Indeed, if he were to praise the Church, that would be politically incorrect. The edition of “Politically Incorrect” that aired [...]

The Comedy Central show, “South Park,” has a record of Catholic bashing, but no episode was worse than the one that aired on July 19 (it was repeated on July 22).  The basic plot of this show centered on a priest who tells children they will burn in hell unless they confess and “eat the crackers” [...]

ACLU’S PROBLEM WITH GOD

By | September 26th, 2000|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The summer of 2000 was not a good one for the ACLU.  On at least three occasions, the ACLU demonstrated once again that it has a problem with God.  Consider the following.

TELL US MORE, AL

A reporter for the New York Times recently joined Al Gore at an informal dinner party in a New York hotel.  Unaccompanied by his aides, the vice president opened up a bit, admitting that he has been guilty of pandering to Catholics.  Pandering, of course, is hardly a distinguishing characteristic for a politician.  But what was revealing about [...]
