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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

In October, three committees of the USCCB issued a strong statement on three cases before the U.S. Supreme Court on the rights of homosexual and transgender persons. The bishops made the case that the 1964 Civil Rights Act does not apply. There are two cases that involve the rights of gay employees, and one that involves [...]

When we learned that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam appointed an anti-Catholic bigot to a state council on women's issues, we went into high gear: we launched a massive protest, enlisting everyone on our email list. Moreover, Richmond Bishop Barry Knestout and Arlington Bishop Michael Burbidge spoke out forcefully against her. Three days later she resigned. Gail [...]

HARRIS UNHINGED

Following the September 12 Democratic debate, Sen. Kamala Harris criticized ABC panelists for not asking about abortion. The debate, she said, "was three hours long and not one question about abortion or reproductive rights." Maybe that's because no one on the stage was pro-life. Indeed, what separates one Democratic presidential candidate from the other on abortion [...]
