NEW YORK TIMES COVERS “UNPLANNED”

By |2019-05-14T15:19:39+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

In the April 9 edition of the New York Times, there was a news story about the pro-life movie "Unplanned." Of course, the term "pro-life" never appeared—such persons were described as "being against abortion rights." The words were chosen carefully: those who defend human rights in utero are against human rights. The story started with an [...]

“UNPLANNED”: FACING THE HORROR of abortion

By |2019-05-14T15:19:40+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Rick Hinshaw read "Unplanned" and saw the movie as well. He shares with us his insights. Abby Johnson's story first exploded onto the American consciousness in late 2009, thanks, ironically, to the machinations—and miscalculations—of the Planned Parenthood (PP) publicity machine. As is well known now, thanks to "Unplanned," the compelling, gripping movie taken from Abby's 2010 [...]

BUTTIGIEG’S DISHONESTY IS ASTONISHING

By |2019-05-14T15:19:40+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg is being hailed in some quarters as an honest man who would make a good president. Picking up on this image, he is now selling himself as a committed Christian, one who is much more broad minded than Christian conservatives. When asked by Kirsten Powers about his favorite Bible verses, [...]

BUTTIGIEG’S RELIGION AGENDA

By |2019-05-14T15:19:40+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg chose Palm Sunday to announce his presidential bid. It is no accident: It accurately reflects his religion agenda. "A devoted Episcopalian who fluidly quotes Scripture and married his husband, Chasten, in a church service last year, Mr. Buttigieg is making the argument that marriage is a moral issue." That's the way [...]

By |2019-05-14T15:19:40+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is keeping her campaign promise to put her radical agenda ahead of the best interests of children. In 2015, Michigan's legislature passed a law to protect the religious freedom of faith-based foster care and adoption agencies, assuring that they wouldn’t be forced to choose between their values and their mission to [...]

NESSEL IS A DISASTER

By |2019-05-14T15:19:40+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is a disaster. She can't seem to shake charges of bigotry. Worse, she has no problem condemning bigotry when the victims are non-Catholics. Not to worry, Catholics are taking note of her selective interest in justice. The latest controversy that Nessel is embroiled in concerns new charges of anti-Catholic bigotry, this [...]

CISCO DISCRIMINATES AGAINST CATHOLICS

By |2019-05-14T15:19:41+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Cisco Systems, the multinational technology behemoth, has a reputation for fostering tolerance, diversity, and inclusion. It is undeserved. When it comes to Catholics, it makes an exception. As will be revealed, it also has a problem with others. In April, Belen Jesuit Preparatory School in Miami was turned down by Cisco for participation in the company's [...]

ASSESSING THE ABUSE REPORT ON ILLINOIS PRIESTS

By |2019-05-14T15:19:41+00:00May 14th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

There are many news stories about the 395 priests in Illinois who have been named in a report on clergy sexual abuse, but most of them are incomplete. For starters, not all of those named are priests, not all of them are from Illinois, and most of the listings are unsubstantiated accusations. Bill Donohue has read [...]

Dana Nessel, Michigan's new Attorney General, is not off to a good start with Catholics. In February, she held a press conference where she insulted Catholics. Her topic was a state investigation into allegations of Catholic clergy sexual abuse. She threw a sucker punch at Catholics by telling residents to "ask to see their badge and [...]

MICHIGAN OFFICIALS ASKED TO PROBE THE SCHOOLS

By |2019-04-18T18:25:55+00:00April 18th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

As we pointed out recently, perverts and rapists are preying on public school students in Michigan today, yet neither Governor Gretchen Whitmer nor Attorney General Dana Nessel are asking for an investigation of the schools. That's because they are too busy hounding the Catholic Church. Nessel recently started an investigation of clergy sexual abuse, but not [...]
