By | 2017-12-27T20:17:46+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Seventeen "women's rights" organizations, all of which complain there aren't enough women in public office, tried to stop the appointment of a woman, Amy Coney Barrett, to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. They failed. She was confirmed by a vote of 55-43. This was also a victory for those who oppose anti-Catholicism, the one prejudice [...]

Senate Republicans, joined by three Democrats, stopped a filibuster of the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals; the vote was 54-42. It was two Mormon Republicans, Senator Orrin Hatch and Senator Mike Lee, who made the most impassioned defense of Barrett's nomination. The Notre Dame law professor's religious convictions [...]

Rep. Nancy Pelosi spoke at the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus on October 26 urging her colleagues to overturn President Trump's rollback of the Obama administration's Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate. She supports a new bill, the Protect Access to Birth Control Act, that restores funding for services provided by the HHS mandate. Pelosi called the Trump [...]

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:47+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The following article written by Bill Donohue was recently published by CNSNews.com. "Spotlight" won an Oscar for best picture in 2016 for its portrayal of the clergy sexual abuse scandal in the Archdiocese of Boston. At least nine of those associated with this film have worked with Harvey Weinstein, yet eight have said nothing about his [...]

ATTACK ON BISHOP MORLINO IS SCURRILOUS

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:47+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Catholics in the Diocese of Madison are very fortunate to have such a brilliant and courageous leader in Bishop Robert Morlino. He is currently under attack by dissident Catholics, ex-Catholics, and those who never were Catholic, for merely upholding the teachings of the Catholic Church. The uproar is wholly unjustified, and is indeed scurrilous. It was [...]

LAURA INGRAHAM’S CATHOLICISM UNDER FIRE

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:47+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It is hardly a secret that many on the Left are militant secularists who hate religion, saving a special loathing for Roman Catholicism. The latest evidence appears online by Joe Lapointe. We had to look him up. He was a "segment producer" for the always-fired Keith Olbermann, which means he did not have a full-time job. [...]

MEDIA LOWBALL KILLER’S ATHEISM

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:47+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The media have had plenty of time to discuss Devin Kelley's atheism and the role it may have played in gunning down the faithful during a religious service in a Texas church. But few have shown much interest in doing so. This carries even more weight when we consider what was reported on "Good Morning Washington." [...]

PAUL RYAN’S LAME CRITICS

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:47+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The secular left is more terrified of religion than it is STDs, and indeed it treats people of faith as if they harbored some deadly infectious disease. Witness the hyperventilating over Rep. Paul Ryan's statement of faith following the Texas killings. When asked by Laura Ingraham to comment on what happened at the Texas church on [...]

LAWRENCE O’DONNELL RIPS IRISH CATHOLICS

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:47+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

When a person makes a mean-spirited bigoted comment, he is not exculpated if he is a member of the group he disparages. What matters is not the biography of the bigot: what matters is the bigoted comment. Lawrence O'Donnell proved once again that he, as an Irish Catholic, is not immune from charges of anti-Catholicism. Here [...]

NEW YORK TIMES’ FLAWED REPORT ON IRISH HOMES

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:47+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

In a recent New York Times piece, "The Lost Children of Tuam," about an Irish Mother and Baby Home, reporter Dan Barry tries desperately to affirm the unsubstantiated claims made by Catherine Corless, a secretary with no academic or research credentials, about the Mother and Baby Home in Tuam, Ireland. He fails. His account is more [...]
