By |2020-05-18T16:24:22+00:00May 18th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

On April 6, Cardinal George Pell's conviction on five counts of sexual abuse was unanimously overturned by Australia's High Court. He was never guilty of these charges in the first place. The decision by the High Court cannot be challenged. Pell has suffered greatly and has been the victim of outrageous lies. He has been smeared, [...]

In the last issue of Catalyst, we reprinted Bill Donohue's letter to the House Ethics Committee asking that Rep. Rashida Tlaib be formally reprimanded for her obscene assault on the sensibilities of religious Americans. We also listed an email contact for her. She got bombarded with angry emails from Catholics and she immediately started walking it [...]

On March 2, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that it will review a Superior Court decision that allowed Renee A. Rice the right to pursue claims against the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown even though the statute of limitations had long expired. The Catholic League filed an amicus brief in the case in support of the diocese; the [...]

KEY CASES TO BE DECIDED

We may not know the outcome until the spring of 2021, but it looms as one of the most important cases pitting gay rights against religious liberty that the U.S. Supreme Court has ever agreed to hear. Two years ago, a federal district court turned down Catholic Social Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia in its [...]

Public policy reforms governing religious liberty were recently proposed by the Trump administration. Federal rulemaking directives afford the public 30 days to comment on them after they are posted in the Federal Register. Bill Donohue submitted his statement in favor of the rules on January 21, five days after they were announced. The Trump administration has [...]

Finally, after almost 150 years, we may rid the law of anti-Catholic legislation. The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments on a school choice case of monumental significance. The Catholic League has been fighting for school choice since Father Virgil Blum founded the organization in 1973. The case involves a Montana scholarship program that allows [...]

MEDIA BARRAGE ON THE CHURCH; THE QUEST FOR DIRT

By |2020-01-27T20:53:15+00:00January 27th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The year ended with a barrage of media stories on the Catholic Church, the likes of which we've not seen for some time. What made this flurry of negative stories so different is that they were mostly non-stories. In other words, the media ran articles about clergy sexual abuse that failed to uncover anything new. There [...]

CHRISTMAS ATTACKS

By |2020-01-27T20:53:15+00:00January 27th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The Christmas haters made their presence felt this past season; their antics varied considerably. Vandals struck Catholic churches throughout the country: arson, burglary and theft were among the most common offenses. Crosses were smashed, obscene inscriptions were left, and satanic displays were also featured. A third-grade enactment of the nativity scene was banned when atheists went [...]

By |2019-12-23T16:35:20+00:00December 23rd, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Faithful America, a radical secularist entity, recently initiated an ethics complaint against Attorney General William Barr; it also launched a petition drive in support of this campaign. We countered with a petition drive of our own in support of Barr. On the same day, these left-wing radicals chided a Catholic priest for denying Joe Biden Holy [...]

CHRISTMAS TREE RETURNS

By |2019-12-23T16:35:20+00:00December 23rd, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Two weeks before Thanksgiving, by a vote of 64-30, the Wisconsin Assembly voted to call the Christmas tree in the state Capitol rotunda a Christmas tree. The governor, Tony Evers, wanted it called a "holiday tree." The Assembly also voted to adopt a resolution recognizing Thanksgiving week as National Bible Week. The Christian haters at Freedom [...]
