By | 2017-12-08T13:28:52+00:00 December 6th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Essay|

Bill Donohue Those waging war on the monuments—public celebrations of prominent Americans—assume that history is replete with good guys and bad guys; the good guys are those who stood up to injustice and the bad guys are responsible for it. The assumption is baseless. More typically, the good guys have had their fair share of flaws, [...]

Bill Donohue and Harvey Weinstein have been locking horns for over two decades. So when the New York Times broke the story about his sexual escapades—using his power position to abuse women in his employ—it triggered a strong response from us. We now know that Weinstein abused women even as he championed the cause of women's [...]

HHS MANDATE VICTORY

President Trump did not let Catholics down: His administration granted a religious exemption to the Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate on October 6th. Those employers whose "sincerely held religious beliefs" are compromised by providing for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraceptives in their healthcare plans do not have to abide by the mandate.

William A. Donohue When the Catholic League objects to anti-Catholic art, we are routinely labeled censors by the artistic community, but when some of their liberal colleagues object to art that offends them—such as treating lizards "inhumanely"—there is little outrage, and no name calling. Where was the outrage by the media, the artistic community, and free [...]

FEMINISTS JEOPARDIZE WOMEN’S HEALTH

Why are feminists working overtime to keep information from women about their bodies? And why are they trying desperately to prevent them from receiving first-class medical care?

California Governor Jerry Brown recently vetoed AB 569, a bill that the Catholic League opposed as "a blatant assault on religious freedom." In August, Bill Donohue wrote to every member of the California State Senate. "Under the guise of 'anti-discrimination,'" he explained, this bill would have barred religious organizations from establishing faith-based codes of conduct for [...]
