RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IS IN A PRECARIOUS STATE

By |2020-08-03T19:56:32+00:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The U.S. Supreme Court decision on workplace discrimination against homosexuals and transgender persons leaves religious liberty matters in a precarious state. We stand with the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, who said that the Supreme Court "effectively redefined the legal meaning of 'sex' in our nation's civil [...]

GORSUCH’S FLAWED ANTHROPOLOGY

By |2020-08-03T19:56:32+00:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

There are many problems with the majority opinion written by Justice Neil Gorsuch on workplace discrimination, sexual orientation and gender identity, but none is more important than the flawed anthropology upon which the ruling rests. In fact, it is pivotal. "An individual's homosexuality or transgender status is not relevant to employment decisions." This sweeping statement, which [...]

SCURRILOUS ATTACKS ON BISHOP DIMARZIO

By |2020-08-03T19:56:32+00:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Brooklyn Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio was recently accused, for the second time, of abusing a minor. This is one of the most incredibly ugly smears ever endured by a Catholic priest. Last November, attorney Mitchell Garabedian made a big public splash when he said he was going to file suit against DiMarzio for abusing Mark Matzek in [...]

VIACOMCBS BOARD ASKED TO ADDRESS NOAH

By |2020-08-03T19:56:32+00:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Trevor Noah, the South African black comedian, is out of control. An unrelenting bigot, his jokes about Catholic priests are mean-spirited and slanderous. His latest attack was May 18. The only ones who can rein him in—making him treat priests the way he does many protected classes of people—are those who sit on the board of [...]

PROTESTERS TOPPLE STATUES OF ST. SERRA

By |2020-08-03T19:56:32+00:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Smashing statues of American icons is all the rage among urban barbarians. Ignorant of history, they are destroying statues of those who were among the most enlightened persons of their time. This includes Father Junípero Serra. The 18th century missionary fought hard for the rights of Indians, and was rightfully canonized by Pope Francis in 2015. [...]

HUMAN RIGHTS BEGIN WITH RELIGIOUS RIGHTS

By |2020-08-03T19:56:32+00:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

An important State Department report on human rights that will soon be released will anger left-wing secularists and gay rights advocates. The Commission on Unalienable Rights, which was established by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, is expected to give prominence to religious rights. That explains the backlash. In a New York Times article by journalist Pranshu [...]

DE BLASIO AND CUOMO GET CREAMED IN COURT

By |2020-08-03T19:56:32+00:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Protesters can take to the streets, some violently, and that is okay by Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo—the mob does not have to abide by social distancing rules—but religious New Yorkers cannot congregate in their houses of worship lest they imperil the public health. Well, the jig is up. U.S. District Court Judge [...]

EUCHARISTIC BAN IN MD COUNTY RESCINDED

By |2020-08-03T19:56:33+00:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

At the end of May, we learned of a planned ban on the Eucharist in a Maryland county. We wasted no time contacting our email list of subscribers asking for them to get involved. They sure did, and with great effect. Consider that the Volstead Act, which enforced the 18th Amendment ban on alcohol, allowed for [...]

FEDS NEED TO INVESTIGATE CUOMO

By |2020-08-03T19:56:33+00:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

New York Rep. Elise Stefanik has called for an independent federal investigation of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's response to the way he handled the coronavirus pandemic in New York's nursing homes. We second that. Cuomo is responsible for the nursing home scandal: nearly 6,000 men and women have died in New York State nursing homes as a [...]

HBO KEEPS Bill MAHER

By |2020-08-03T19:56:33+00:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The corporate boys are so anxious to prove that they are not racists that they are flexing their moralistic muscles beyond recognition. WarnerMedia, which is owned by AT&T, has said that it will pull "Gone With the Wind" from its HBO Max package. It objects to the film's "racist depictions." It is too bad HBO is [...]
