Weeks before the Senate Judiciary Committee began its hearings on the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court, Bill Donohue predicted that she was not likely to be subjected to another round of anti-Catholic assaults like she endured in 2017 when she was being considered for an appellate job. He was right. [...]

U.S. Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas would like the high court to revisit the 2015 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges that granted a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

A professor at Texas A&M University posted several vicious anti-Catholic comments on social media, and apparently was going to get away with it. Bill Donohue wrote to the school's president, Michael K. Young, on September 14 asking for sanctions.

PROBE NETFLIX

We have asked the Department of Justice to launch an investigation of Netflix. At issue is the possible violation of federal law governing the production of child pornography. The French movie Cuties is the object of our concern. The film is soft-core child porn masquerading as a coming-of-age story. According to Bernadette Brady-Egan, the Catholic League's [...]

By |2020-09-21T20:20:00-04:00September 21st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

When the anarchists captured a portion of Seattle, turning it into a haven for the deranged, its clueless mayor, Jenny Durkan, called it "The Summer of Love." It didn't take long before the love birds targeted her home. All of a sudden, she pivoted. Her office issued a statement denouncing the rioters for threatening "the safety [...]

TWIN WINS IN HIGH COURT

By |2020-09-21T20:20:01-04:00September 21st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

In the last week of its 2019-2020 term, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered two back-to-back victories for religious liberty; they were both 7-2 decisions. Catholic schools and agencies were the big winners. The Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that religious schools enjoyed a "ministerial exception" that protected them from lawsuits brought by teachers whom the school [...]

By |2020-08-03T19:56:30-04:00July 31st, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The due process rights of priests are in a tenuous state, and this is especially true in Pennsylvania. We have been actively involved in this issue, especially following the grand jury report that was trumpeted by the state's attorney general, Josh Shapiro. What he said and did was disgraceful—a classic case of injustice—which is why we [...]

CARDINAL DOLAN TARGETED; CRITICS EXPOSED

By |2020-06-24T19:46:25-04:00June 24th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Cardinal Timothy Dolan was recently the source of one of the most unprincipled and well-orchestrated attacks against a bishop to surface in many years. The politics that underscored the campaign were palpable. The trigger for this onslaught was a conference call that 600 Catholic educators had with President Trump on April 24. The president asked Cardinal [...]

GULLIBILITY GALORE

By |2020-06-24T19:46:26-04:00June 24th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

If there were a gullibility record, it was recently broken by the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP). This Church-hating band of professional victims' advocates—which the Catholic League played a key role in effectively destroying (it limbers on but few pay it any heed)—proved how easy it is to seduce when it bought, hook, [...]
