ANTI-KAVANAUGH EDITORIALS ARE DISHONEST

By |2018-11-26T20:48:56+00:00November 26th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, and the New York Times ran editorials opposing Brett Kavanaugh to be the next U.S. Supreme Court Justice. This is hardly surprising. What is most disturbing about them is their dishonesty: they fail to mention their real reason for opposing him—abortion. The Los Angeles Times said that "We oppose [...]

By |2018-11-26T20:55:45+00:00November 26th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Archbishop Charles Chaput possesses both the brilliance to astutely analyze the content of the dominant culture, and the courage to challenge us to think more clearly about it.

In the last century, the Communist party in the United States sought to infiltrate the Church with apostate homosexual priests. In more recent times, wealthy left-wing activists and foundations [...]
