The Bedford Cheese Shop, with outlets in Brooklyn and Manhattan, was the unlikely source of a filthy assault on Mother Teresa this summer. After we launched a vigorous protest, the offensive item was quickly withdrawn and an apology was granted. We got a tip from an outraged Catholic who visited the Manhattan store on July 26. [...]

A lawsuit designed to intimidate Bill Donohue and the Catholic League came to a screeching halt in August. We won. At every step of the way, a lawsuit filed by Rebecca Randles against Donohue and the Catholic League was knocked down by the courts. Donohue never libeled anyone, and she knows it. She is known as [...]

By | 2017-09-20T20:45:08+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

William A. Donohue President Trump was right to call out the extremists on both sides of the Charlottesville tragedy, but more needs to be said about those on the Left who helped to bring it about. The crazies on the Right—the KKK, the Neo-Nazis and the White Supremacists—have been justly condemned by virtually everyone, save for [...]

If it weren't for Cardinal George Pell, it would not matter a whole lot to the Catholic League if a free nation like Australia decided to emulate the totalitarian regime in North Korea. But he does matter, and that is why we are concerned. He has been the target of character assassins for a very long [...]

TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT “TRANSGENDERS”

By | 2017-09-20T20:36:57+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

President Trump's decision to ban so-called transgender persons from the military makes perfect sense: the armed forces exist to win wars—they are not a laboratory for social or sexual engineers. There is an underlying issue, however, that is much more serious. It's time for some straight talk. No one doubts that there are men who have, [...]

DONOHUE DEFENDS DAWKINS

Whenever Bill Donohue writes about Richard Dawkins, it is to criticize some anti-Catholic remark he has made. He has written a fair amount about him. This time Donohue was on his side. Dawkins was denied the opportunity to express his views on KPFA: the radio station reneged on its invitation to interview him. Here is how [...]
