On Sunday, Catholic League president Bill Donohue will make a statement on the 9/11 tragedy that will air on the Fox News Channel. Two of the 30 second ads will run between 8:00 a.m. and noon (EST); the third will run during Fox News Sunday that evening.
Below is Donohue’s tribute:
The Catholic League salutes all those men and women who died on 9/11, ten years ago today.
In today’s first reading at Mass, there is a selection from the Old Testament book of Sirach, one line of which is particularly apropos: “Forgive your neighbor’s injustice; then when you pray, your own sins will be forgiven.
Although we heed the call to forgiveness, we must never forget that these innocent victims were massacred because of our Judeo-Christian values. We owe it to them to remain vigilant in the defense of our heritage.
