QUINNIPIAC POLLSTERS MISLED THE PUBLIC

By |2017-03-20T17:51:25-04:00April 10th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

In a survey of American Catholic opinion, the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute intentionally misled the public by claiming that Catholics led “American voters toward support for same-sex marriage.” But Catholic League president Dr. William Donohue showed that a closer examination of the survey showed differently, forcing Assistant Director Peter Brown to admit his claims were incorrect. [...]

NEW YORK TIMES SURVEY OF CATHOLICS

By |2017-03-20T17:51:26-04:00April 10th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It’s debatable whether someone who admits attending Mass only “a few times a year or never” can be considered Catholic, but their responses make interesting reading compared with those who “attend Mass weekly.” The majority of weekly attendees supported Pope Benedict; only a quarter of those rarely attending did so. While 72% of weekly attendees closely [...]

INADEQUATE SURVEYS

By |2013-04-10T17:31:35-04:00April 10th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The larger the sample size of any population, the more costly the survey, but the more accurate the findings. Catholics make up anywhere between 70 and 78 million Americans, but even a sample of 1,500 can yield relatively accurate results (the margin of error in such a survey would generally be 3 percentage points). Two recently [...]

STEWART GETS INTO THE GUTTER AGAIN

By |2013-04-10T17:31:37-04:00April 10th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

On a recent “Daily Show” episode, Jon Stewart once again showed his anti-Catholic bigotry for all to see. What started off with jabs against the cardinals and their chances of election quickly got uglier as a “Vatican Correspondent” referred to Communion as a “cracker and juice ceremony.” The segment continued its descent into the gutter with [...]

HBO’S PLEPLER NEEDS TO MOVE ON MAHER

By |2013-04-10T17:31:38-04:00April 10th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Richard Plepler is the CEO of HBO, and the Catholic League’s dealings with him in the past have been cordial and professional. But he has obviously allowed Bill Maher to continue expounding his anti-Catholic rants with impunity. Here is a sample of what Maher said on a recent episode: •The pope and the cardinals are known [...]

ANDREW SULLIVAN SMEARS POPE AGAIN

By |2013-04-10T17:31:38-04:00April 10th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Andrew Sullivan has once again accused retired Pope Benedict XVI of being a homosexual. His evidence? The pope’s “handsome male companion [Archbishop Georg Ganswein] will continue to live with him, while working for the other Pope during the day.” Sullivan asks, “Are we supposed to think that’s, well, a normal arrangement?” Speaking about normal is hardly [...]

CANADIAN ATHEISTS RIP MOTHER TERESA

By |2017-03-20T17:51:26-04:00April 10th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

In the Canadian journal, Studies in Religion, Serge Larivée et al attacked Mother Teresa in a rehash of Christopher Hitchens’ book The Missionary Position. No one was cited more in this new article. Not surprisingly, Larivée is a devout atheist, along with at least one co-author. The authors berated Mother Teresa’s “rather dubious way of caring [...]

COLLEGE MALES PLAY “KILL THE BABY”

By |2013-04-10T17:31:39-04:00April 10th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Recently some young men at Hunter College played a game mocking abortion. They stuffed balloons under their shirts, pretending to be pregnant, and then used plastic forks and knives on each other to pop the balloons. Students yelled, “Kill that baby! Kill it!” At least they were honest: pregnant women aren’t carrying blobs of cells—they’re carrying [...]

During this year’s Oscars, The Onion made an comment on its Twitter account about actress Quvenzhané Wallis, using an obscenity to refer to the 9-year-old girl. After fielding a ton of complaints, Greg Hughes, who issued the tweet, finally admitted that his remarks were “crude and offensive,” saying that no one “should be subjected to such [...]

Recently Catholic League President Dr. William A. Donohue contacted Allegheney College president, Dr. James H. Mullen, Jr.: Last night, two sexperts arrived on your campus to teach students how to masturbate.
