Bill Donohue comments on the decision by St. Paul and Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt not to resign: It's all about homosexuality. Ever since Archbishop Nienstedt criticized the pro-gay film, "Brokeback Mountain," he has been targeted by homosexual activists all over the nation. So it is hardly surprising to read a story on him in today's New [...]

DISSIDENT CATHOLICS ACTING OUT

By | 2017-03-20T17:50:12+00:00 July 30th, 2014|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue comments on dissident Catholics: Dissident Catholics are now attacking the composition of the Catholic Church for being Catholic. The problem they have identified—and here I am talking about the editorial board of the National Catholic Reporter—is the Synod of Bishops. What's wrong with it? It is nothing but a "tiny representation of humanity, celibate [...]

LIBRARY OF CONGRESS PIVOTS

By | 2017-03-20T17:50:12+00:00 July 29th, 2014|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue comments on how the Library of Congress has handled complaints about the flyer for its presentation on the Reformation scheduled for July 31: The first reaction to our earlier news release on this subject was defensive and sophomoric. We received a phone call from the chief of the Rare Books Division saying he has [...]

LIBRARY OF CONGRESS LOOKS BAD

By | 2017-03-20T17:50:12+00:00 July 29th, 2014|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue comments on a presentation offered on July 31 at the Library of Congress, "The Book and the Reformation," sponsored by the Rare Book and Special Collections Division: It is hardly inappropriate to sponsor an event on the Reformation, but there is something offensive going on when the Library of Congress flags it in a [...]

Bill Donohue comments on yesterday's editorial in the Minneapolis Star Tribune seeking the ouster of St. Paul and Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt: He has been charged with offenses and found innocent. He has broken no law. He is the subject of unsubstantiated accusations. Most of his accusers remain anonymous. He has triggered several investigations of himself [...]

RELIGIOUS JOKES DURING RAMADAN

By | 2017-03-20T17:50:13+00:00 July 28th, 2014|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue comments on recent jokes made on TV about religion: We know that every time there is a Christian holiday, jokes about Christianity proliferate. Ramadan ended yesterday, so it is a good time to see how TV hosts treated Islam over the last four weeks, vis-a-vis Catholicism. Not unexpectedly, Ramadan was not an occasion for [...]

Bill Donohue comments on Jennifer Haselberger, the prime source of accusations against St. Paul and Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt: The most viciously anti-Catholic group in the nation is the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests (SNAP).

ARCHBISHOP NIENSTEDT’S NEW CRITICS

By | 2017-03-20T17:50:13+00:00 July 24th, 2014|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue comments on an editorial in today's St. Cloud Times urging Catholics in Minnesota to press for the ouster of St. Paul and Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt: This editorial is based heavily on the uncontested testimony of a "church lawyer." Because Jennifer Haselberger's testimony was never challenged by a lawyer for the archdiocese, we have [...]

By | 2017-03-20T17:50:13+00:00 July 23rd, 2014|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

On last night's episode of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," the host mocked Fox News for a soft interview with Sen. John McCain. Pretending to be a reporter, Stewart asks of himself, "Is Jon Stewart fair to Republicans?" Although this skit had absolutely nothing to do with Catholicism, Stewart managed to turn it into another [...]
