Bill Donohue Catholic League members who received our February appeal will remember that I was not too happy when Ben & Jerry's, the ice cream company owned by two left-wing radicals, and Colin Kaepernick, the failed quarterback turned left-wing activist, teamed together to push an invidious message: "I Know My Rights." The one thing young men [...]

Bill Donohue The following is a shortened version of what is posted on our website.
