There are two hosts on TV today who would be fired if they said about other demographic groups and institutions what they say about Catholics and the Catholic Church: Bill Maher and Trevor Noah. It is Noah who recently commanded our interest. On June 11, Noah went on an obscene rant about Catholics and the Catholic [...]

John Gehring runs a front group for his senior left-wing patron, atheist billionaire George Soros. Faith In Public Life, it needs to be acknowledged, represents no rank-and-file constituency. Gehring found a home for his latest assault on Catholicism in a piece distributed by the Religion News Service. Gehring is upset that two bishops have recently defended [...]

The Congregation for Catholic Education has published the most brilliant and authoritative document on the sexes that is currently available. It literally tears to pieces the fatuous claims of gender ideology. Fortunately, it does not water down its account by trying to appease its critics. "Male and Female: He Created Them" is not only the title [...]

Providence Bishop Thomas Tobin has incurred the wrath of homosexuals and their alphabet ilk for tweeting on June 1 that Catholics should not support LGBTQ "Pride Month" events. He tweeted that such celebrations "promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals. They are especially harmful to children." Immediately, the bishop [...]

CALIFORNIA CONFESSIONAL BILL UPDATE

By |2019-07-22T19:56:12+00:00July 22nd, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

In the last Catalyst, we said progress was being made on the California Confessional bill. Instead of requiring priests to divulge any information on the sexual abuse of a minor learned in the confessional from any source, it was limited to penitents such as a co-worker or a priest. Catholic League members helped drive this progress. [...]

NYS-RUN HOMES MERIT NEW LAW

By |2019-07-22T19:56:12+00:00July 22nd, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

There was a recent story in the New York Times on conditions in state-run homes for the developmentally disabled that was very disturbing. Not only are many of the residents subjected to physical and sexual abuse, state laws protect miscreant state workers, allowing them to strike again, with impunity. This is not a new story. In [...]

BIDEN’S BIGGEST BLUNDER

By |2019-07-22T19:56:12+00:00July 22nd, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Joe Biden can get away with his penchant for gaffes, but he will never get away with his newly decided opposition to the Hyde Amendment. For decades, his pro-abortion stance drew a line in the sand when it came to forcing the taxpayers to pay for abortions. That line is now gone. This is Joe Biden's [...]

By |2019-07-22T19:56:12+00:00July 22nd, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg has degrees from Harvard and Oxford and was a Rhodes scholar. The New Republic is in love with him, calling the son of two college professors a "genius." When it comes to abortion, however, the "genius" hasn't a clue what he is talking about. He even admitted that last year. In [...]
