The Catholic League is pleased to announce that the Sun-Sentinel has extended an apology to Catholics for carrying an anti-Catholic ad.  The Fort Lauderdale newspaper also said that it was revising its advertising policy, pledging not to run  anymore anti-Catholic ads.

Dr. William A Donohue, president of the Catholic League, issued the following statement:

“We are pleased with the response of the Sun-Sentinel.  Nonetheless we will move forward to establish a chapter of the Catholic League in the Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach area.  But there will be no public advertising campaign by the Catholic League against the Sun-Sentinel.”

The Catholic League is the nation’s largest Catholic civil rights organization. It defends the right of Catholics–lay and clergy alike–to participate in American life without defamation or discrimination.
