Australia's highest court has given Cardinal George Pell a measure of justice by agreeing to hear his appeal. Convicted last December of molesting two choirboys in the 1990s, his case will now get a final hearing in the early part of 2020. Pell has been defamed, wrongly convicted, and unjustly sentenced to solitary confinement. More than [...]

When it comes to education, there is no better way to punish the poor than to deny them the same opportunities the affluent have. Here's the drill: Keep the poor away from charter schools and away from private schools, especially Catholic schools in the inner city. Make sure to defend the unions to the hilt, knowing [...]

Last spring, we called for the censure of Brian Sims, a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, for verbally assaulting an innocent woman. He remained defiant, refusing to apologize. But he finally relented in late October. On May 5, totally unprovoked, Sims accosted an elderly Catholic woman who was praying the rosary outside a Planned [...]

By |2019-12-23T16:35:21+00:00December 23rd, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

USA Today is on a tear against the Catholic Church. Last month it published a 3700-word-story on efforts by the bishops to fight discriminatory legislation. Now it has unloaded again, this time indicting the Church in a 6226-word-story for not tracking former priests accused of sexual abuse. The newspaper must be vying for a Pulitzer. Why [...]

No organization does a better job of helping the homeless at Christmastime than the Salvation Army. This year it came under attack by homosexuals and the sexually confused, arguing that it is not supportive of their politics. It is not supposed to be. The Salvation Army is a Christian charity. The attacks started two weeks before [...]

The New York City Council has banned the sale of foie gras, saying it involves animal cruelty; ducks are force-fed to ensure fattened livers. It joins California in making the sale illegal. Carlina Rivera sponsored the legislation in New York. She says her legislation "tackles the most inhumane process"; she also called it "one of the [...]

DEFINING RACISM DOWN

By |2019-12-23T16:35:22+00:00December 23rd, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Racism, true racism, is being devalued, and nothing contributes to its dumbing-down more than its promiscuous invocation. Being called a racist is by now so common that it has lost its sting. Indeed, the very concept of racism is increasingly irrelevant. For example, Julian Castro, who is running for president, boasts he is opposed to "environmental [...]

WILL OUR CULTURE WAR BECOME A CIVIL WAR?

By |2019-12-23T16:35:22+00:00December 23rd, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

On October 23, the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service Battleground Civility Poll revealed that two-thirds of Americans believe the U.S. is on the edge of civil war. This was true across the board: sex, age, race, geography, ideology—it did not matter. But why has our culture become so uncivil that it engulfs our national [...]

ATHEIST HATERS KNOW WHERE TO ADVERTISE

Being an atheist does not necessarily mean being anti-Christian, but being an atheist organization, especially these days, means exactly that. It's how they survive—by bashing Christians. Their favorite target, of course, is the Catholic Church. Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is one of the most Christian-hating atheist organizations in the nation. It advertises its hate speech [...]
