ILL-SERVING MINORITY STUDENTS

By |2021-02-03T10:01:39-05:00February 3rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It is one of history's greatest ironies: No segment of society punishes the poor more than those who champion their cause. This is true historically in nations claimed by Marxism, and in democratic nations today claimed by liberalism. Rhetoric aside, the left always screws the poor. The latest Marxist to do so, in a democratic country [...]

TWO KEY RELIGIOUS LIBERTY RULINGS

By |2021-02-03T10:01:39-05:00February 3rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Just before midnight on Thanksgiving eve, New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a professed former altar boy, took it on the chin when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that his executive order limiting occupancy in houses of worship could not stand. It was blocked pending a review by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals. Though [...]

BIDEN OUT OF STEP WITH BISHOPS AGAIN

By |2020-12-21T14:14:57-05:00December 21st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

As we know, there is no marriage, family, or reproductive issue that Joe Biden is on the same page with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). What has gotten by most observers, however, is his support for gender theory, a fictional construct that argues if a male considers himself to be a female, he [...]

TRUMP DIDN’T CREATE INCIVILITY

By |2020-12-21T14:14:57-05:00December 21st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

After watching President Trump for the past few years, New York Times columnist David Brooks recently opined that he fully expected "the country would rise up in moral revulsion" at his gruff style. He is dumbfounded at the outcome. "Trump's behavior got worse and worse...and nothing happened." There are plenty of reasons why. The mainstreaming of [...]

VOTERS SPLIT ON STATE ABORTION LAWS

By |2020-12-21T14:14:58-05:00December 21st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Voters in Colorado and Louisiana considered abortion legislation on election day and went in opposite directions. The voters not only have nothing in common on this issue, their preferences are rooted in their religious values, or the lack thereof. Louisiana voters passed an amendment to the state constitution that forbids the right to an abortion or [...]

NOT ALL PROTESTERS ARE THUGS

By |2020-12-21T14:14:58-05:00December 21st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The difference between the pro-Trump and the pro-Biden protesters in the aftermath of the election is stark. The former were peaceful; the latter were violent. Nothing symbolizes the difference between the protesters more than what happened on November 5th in Phoenix and Portland. In Phoenix, Trump supporters gathered outside of Arizona's Maricopa County Elections office to [...]

THE NEED TO CLAIM AOC CATHOLIC

By |2020-12-21T14:14:58-05:00December 21st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

There isn't much left of Catholic "progressives" these days, which explains why they are trying so hard to find a public person whom they can anoint as one of their own. They think they have found such a person in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). "I consider myself Catholic," AOC told a reporter. That is not how [...]

FEINSTEIN’S SECOND CATHOLIC MOMENT

By |2020-12-21T14:14:59-05:00December 21st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

When Sen. Dianne Feinstein made a patently anti-Catholic comment in 2017, saying to circuit-court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, "the dogma lives loudly within you," Bill Donohue wrote to the senator expressing his concerns. More important, he mobilized thousands of Catholics to email Sen. Charles Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, about Feinstein's bigoted remark. Now [...]

DISSIDENT CATHOLICS HATE BARRETT

By |2020-12-21T14:14:59-05:00December 21st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Judge Amy Coney Barrett has won over the American people and, as we recently saw, a majority of the senate. Women are particularly admiring of her, and Catholic women see her as a role model. About the only ones unhappy with her are left-wing atheists, and a few others. The few others includes the editorial staff [...]

HIGH COURT HEARS KEY RELIGIOUS LIBERTY CASE

By |2020-12-21T14:15:00-05:00December 21st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

On November 4, the United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments in one of the most important religious liberty cases in recent years. At stake is the right of religious social service agencies to follow their own religious prerogatives, rather than yield to the secular values of the state. Catholic foster care programs seek to place [...]
