LIBERALS KILLED E.R.A., NOT “RELIGIOUS RIGHT”

By |2018-07-03T16:11:10+00:00June 30th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The April 20 editorial in the New York Times on the Equal Rights Amendment (E.R.A.) is flawed in several ways. It is not the "religious right" that is responsible for the failure of this amendment, it is liberals. The editorial demonizes the "religious right" for "fearmongering," when, in fact, it was liberal women who fought the [...]

TRUMP PROMOTES RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

In May, President Trump signed an executive order promoting religious liberty. It creates a faith-based program giving religious organizations a greater role in government social service programs. We are particularly happy that Trump pledged not to use this initiative the way his predecessor did: Obama's program stifled the religious voice in faith-based entities; Trump's program enhances [...]

It is the fastest growing phobia in the nation. Christophobia. To be sure, the fear of Christians is not overcoming America, but it has unquestionably overcome a large swath of non-believers, or those who profess no religious belief. Within this segment of the population, there are the indifferent at one end, and the haters at the [...]

By |2018-07-03T16:11:10+00:00June 30th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Hedge fund tycoon Steve Cohen no longer wants to keep his famous anti-Catholic art, "The Holy Virgin Mary," so he gave it to MoMA. That was a predictable choice: the museum likes to insult Catholics. This masterpiece, by Chris Ofili, features elephant dung smeared on his portrait of Our Blessed Mother, along with pictures of vaginas [...]

William A. Donohue On February 22, we lost a good one. Dolores Grier was one of the most committed Catholics I ever met, and one of the nation's strongest defenders of the rights of the unborn.
