“Magdalene” Update

By | 2018-03-23T20:04:55+00:00 March 23rd, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The Weinstein Company movie, "Mary Magdalene," will not open on Good Friday. It is being moved to a later date. Catholic League members will recall that our February appeal was a request for donations that would fund a media blitz against the movie. We cited three aspects of this movie that were objectionable: its opening on [...]

That is also the day that Bill Donohue and others will hold a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. For a description of this vile musical, [...]

TRUMP SCORES

A comparison between President Donald Trump's first year in office on the issue of religious liberty, and that of his predecessor, President Barack Obama, showed a considerable difference: religious rights spiked under Trump. On February 1, 2017, Trump chose Judge Neil Gorsuch to take Antonin Scalia's place on the U.S. Supreme Court. Gorsuch is a strong [...]

MAHER SPARKS PETITION DRIVE; TIME WARNER & HBO GUILTY

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:46+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Time Warner has a pathological problem with Catholicism. Consider the following. On November 10, Bill Maher proved to be both a bigot and a coward. His commentary on Jesus, Mary, and Joseph was despicable: He used an obscenity to describe Joseph and Mary having sex. He showed his cowardice when he refused to comment on his [...]

AL FRANKEN MUST GO

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:46+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

When the news broke that Senator Al Franken molested a woman when she was asleep, we immediately called for his resignation. There is no place in public office for sexual abusers. We pointed out that if Franken were an accused priest, he would be forced to step aside, pending an investigation. In his case, because he [...]

By | 2017-11-21T21:09:11+00:00 November 21st, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Bill Donohue and Harvey Weinstein have been locking horns for over two decades. So when the New York Times broke the story about his sexual escapades—using his power position to abuse women in his employ—it triggered a strong response from us. We now know that Weinstein abused women even as he championed the cause of women's [...]

HHS MANDATE VICTORY

By | 2017-11-21T21:09:12+00:00 November 21st, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

President Trump did not let Catholics down: His administration granted a religious exemption to the Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate on October 6th. Those employers whose "sincerely held religious beliefs" are compromised by providing for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraceptives in their healthcare plans do not have to abide by the mandate. By providing for [...]

JUDICIAL NOMINEE MALIGNED; TWO SENATORS GUILTY

By | 2017-10-19T18:16:10+00:00 October 19th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

It was right out of the 19th century. A Catholic nominee for the federal bench is questioned about her Catholicity by two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. This is exactly what the nativists did—they argued that Catholics professed allegiance to Rome, and were thus un-American. Welcome to America in 2017. Senator Dick Durbin and Senator [...]

In the first offense, "Murder" was written on a statue of Saint Serra near the San Fernando Mission, outside of Los Angeles. His hands were painted red and a swastika was depicted on the statue of the child [...]
