By | 2017-12-27T20:17:46+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Time Warner has a pathological problem with Catholicism. Consider the following. On November 10, Bill Maher proved to be both a bigot and a coward. His commentary on Jesus, Mary, and Joseph was despicable: He used an obscenity to describe Joseph and Mary having sex. He showed his cowardice when he refused to comment on his [...]

AL FRANKEN MUST GO

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:46+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

When the news broke that Senator Al Franken molested a woman when she was asleep, we immediately called for his resignation. There is no place in public office for sexual abusers. We pointed out that if Franken were an accused priest, he would be forced to step aside, pending an investigation. In his case, because he [...]

William A. Donohue In schools all across America, Frederick Douglass is known as a former slave who became one of the nation's leading abolitionists; he was also a champion of women's rights.

WAR ON MONUMENTS IS DRIVEN BY HATE

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:46+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Essay|Tags: |

Bill Donohue Those waging war on the monuments—public celebrations of prominent Americans—assume that history is replete with good guys and bad guys; the good guys are those who stood up to injustice and the bad guys are responsible for it. The assumption is baseless. More typically, the good guys have had their fair share of flaws, [...]

ATTACK ON BISHOP MORLINO IS SCURRILOUS

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:47+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Catholics in the Diocese of Madison are very fortunate to have such a brilliant and courageous leader in Bishop Robert Morlino. He is currently under attack by dissident Catholics, ex-Catholics, and those who never were Catholic, for merely upholding the teachings of the Catholic Church. The uproar is wholly unjustified, and is indeed scurrilous. It was [...]

LAURA INGRAHAM’S CATHOLICISM UNDER FIRE

By | 2017-12-27T20:17:47+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It is hardly a secret that many on the Left are militant secularists who hate religion, saving a special loathing for Roman Catholicism. The latest evidence appears online by Joe Lapointe. We had to look him up. He was a "segment producer" for the always-fired Keith Olbermann, which means he did not have a full-time job. [...]
