On April 11, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI released a 6,000-word essay on the origins of the clergy sexual abuse crisis. While many Catholics praised it—we certainly did—his familiar foes went bonkers.

NEW YORK TIMES COVERS “UNPLANNED”

By |2019-05-14T15:19:39+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

In the April 9 edition of the New York Times, there was a news story about the pro-life movie "Unplanned." Of course, the term "pro-life" never appeared—such persons were described as "being against abortion rights." The words were chosen carefully: those who defend human rights in utero are against human rights. The story started with an [...]

Rick Hinshaw read "Unplanned" and saw the movie as well. He shares with us his insights. Abby Johnson's story first exploded onto the American consciousness in late 2009, thanks, ironically, to the machinations—and miscalculations—of the Planned Parenthood (PP) publicity machine.

BUTTIGIEG’S DISHONESTY IS ASTONISHING

By |2019-05-14T15:19:40+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg is being hailed in some quarters as an honest man who would make a good president. Picking up on this image, he is now selling himself as a committed Christian, one who is much more broad minded than Christian conservatives. When asked by Kirsten Powers about his favorite Bible verses, [...]

BUTTIGIEG’S RELIGION AGENDA

By |2019-05-14T15:19:40+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg chose Palm Sunday to announce his presidential bid. It is no accident: It accurately reflects his religion agenda. "A devoted Episcopalian who fluidly quotes Scripture and married his husband, Chasten, in a church service last year, Mr. Buttigieg is making the argument that marriage is a moral issue." That's the way [...]

NESSEL IS A DISASTER

By |2019-05-14T15:19:40+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is a disaster. She can't seem to shake charges of bigotry. Worse, she has no problem condemning bigotry when the victims are non-Catholics. Not to worry, Catholics are taking note of her selective interest in justice. The latest controversy that Nessel is embroiled in concerns new charges of anti-Catholic bigotry, this [...]
