ELITES CELEBRATE WHAT DIVIDES US

Pluralism is a good thing, just so long as it is not pushed to extremes, because when it is, it becomes a separatist threat to cultural cohesion. Unfortunately, we live in a time when our society is more polarized and segmented than ever before. For example, we should be encouraging new immigrants to learn English; it [...]

CANCEL CULTURE IS CANCEROUS

By |2022-04-20T14:42:44-04:00April 20th, 2022|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

William A. Donohue Technically speaking, censorship is something that only the government can do: it has the power to stop speech before it is uttered and prohibit the distribution of the written word. In a free society, such instances must be limited and well defined. For the most part, our society has done a pretty good [...]

By |2022-03-17T12:38:57-04:00March 17th, 2022|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

William A. Donohue Sometime in the spring of 2021, I was asked by a distinguished movie production company from the U.K. if I was interested in being interviewed for a documentary they were planning to do on Mother Teresa. I agreed, albeit with reservation. I agreed because I was honored to be chosen as her number-one [...]

By |2022-02-04T10:02:14-05:00February 4th, 2022|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

On January 6, 2002, the Boston Globe began a series of stories on its investigation into clergy sexual abuse in the Archdiocese of Boston. It would prove to be the most damaging report on the Catholic Church in U.S. history, shocking Catholic and non-Catholic alike. It also inspired reporters across the nation to take a close [...]

ARCHBISHOP GOMEZ’S FINEST HOUR

By |2022-01-03T09:42:32-05:00December 23rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

On November 4, Los Angeles Archbishop José Gomez made one of the most brilliant addresses given in Catholic circles in recent memory. His speech was given at the Congress of Catholics and Public Life in Madrid, Spain. Like so many other Catholic intellectuals, Gomez is rightly concerned about the radical secularization that has taken root in [...]

PUBLIC CONFIDENCE WANES ACROSS THE BOARD

By |2021-11-16T14:41:19-05:00November 16th, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

It is important in a free country for its citizens to have faith in their leaders, their institutions and each other. To be sure, there is nothing wrong with challenging the policies and perspectives of elites, or our fellow citizens—it can be quite healthy—but when skepticism turns to cynicism, that is another thing altogether. Recent survey [...]

ELITES ARE BENT ON DIVIDING US

By |2021-10-20T13:53:31-04:00October 20th, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

The ruling class wants to divide us. They can't seem to get enough division, whether it be along racial, ethnic, class, or sex lines. Their favorite weapon is race, and they are very good at exploiting it. The NFL began the new football season by dividing us along racial lines. They did not begin the first [...]

William A. Donohue To be a good writer, it is important, at least for me, to have a passion for the subject. I brought my passion to bear in writing The Truth about Clergy Sexual Abuse: Clarifying the Facts and the Causes. The book is expected to be available from the publisher, Ignatius Press, in mid-September, [...]

RIGHTS FOR TREES BUT NOT FOR THEE

Christopher D. Stone is not exactly a household name, but he clearly left his mark on the "rights" movement. The University of Southern California law professor recently died. More well known was his father, I.F. Stone, whom the New York Times obituary on Christopher called a "crusading reporter." They left out that he was also a [...]

“HATE AMERICA” CAMPAIGN IS IN HIGH GEAR

By |2021-06-23T13:30:22-04:00June 23rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

The United States is beset with numerous problems, though none as serious as teaching students and workers why they should hate America. It is an intellectually dishonest game, riddled with distortions and out-and-out lies about American history, as well as tortured interpretations of current events. It is disturbing to note that the left-wing agenda is no [...]
