On December 3, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled in a 6-1 decision that the Pennsylvania grand jury report on the Catholic clergy cannot make public the names of 11 priests who challenged the release of their identities; they claimed that doing so would violate their reputational rights as guaranteed by the state constitution. The Catholic League [...]

DNC RIPS CHRISTIANS

The chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez, has a problem with Christians. He thinks they are stupid. Speaking on December 6 at a liberal gathering in Washington, D.C., Perez appeared unhinged as he delivered a whining speech over the inability of Democrats to get their message across. He identified three obstacles: "Fox News, their [...]

On November 1, President Donald Trump nominated Mary Anne Carter to be the new chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). We labored hard to affect this decision, and we are delighted with his choice. Heading the NEA is one of the most important posts in the nation affecting the culture, and we trust [...]

CHRISTMAS CENSORS

By |2019-01-31T19:52:30+00:00January 7th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The Christmas censors wasted no time this year trying to censor Christmas. The Chesterfield County Schools in Virginia yielded to a few students who objected to Christmas songs that mentioned Jesus; all such songs were banned. If they had it their way, Christmas would be banned, not simply lyrics that mention Jesus. In 2017, there was [...]

ST. LOUIS VICTORY

In January 2017, when a bill was introduced in St. Louis to expand abortion rights, the Catholic League supported St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson in his effort to stop the bill. We lost that round but won in court in October. The bill added "pregnancy and reproductive health decisions as protected classes" to an existing anti-discrimination [...]

Looks like our campaign against Samantha Bee's TBS show, "Full Frontal," is paying dividends. In the August 15 edition of her show (reruns were aired over the past few weeks), Bee ran 23 advertisements; on September 12, there were 19. We have been able to pick off seven of her most prominent sponsors: Verizon, Procter and [...]

Following the publication of a Pennsylvania grand jury report on clergy sexual abuse, many states are considering launching a grand jury of their own. Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey and New York have announced investigations, and other states are weighing doing the same. Radical activist groups like the Center for Constitutional Rights are asking for a [...]

BEE’S TV SHOW REELING

By |2018-09-25T19:50:50+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The Catholic League protest of Samantha Bee's TBS TV Show, "Full Frontal," is paying dividends: sponsors continue to flee. Her filthy show has long targeted Catholicism, but when she used a vulgar term to describe President Trump's daughter, she went beyond obscene. We decided to take aim at her advertisers. In the last issue of Catalyst, [...]

This was a tough summer for the Catholic Church. Revelations of sexual misconduct involving Cardinal Theodore McCarrick (he is no longer a member of the College of Cardinals) kept surfacing, and then came the Pennsylvania grand jury report on clergy abuse. For our part, we never wavered, making our voice loudly heard in the media. All [...]
