MEDIA LOWBALL KILLER’S ATHEISM

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

The media have had plenty of time to discuss Devin Kelley's atheism and the role it may have played in gunning down the faithful during a religious service in a Texas church. But few have shown much interest in doing so. This carries even more weight when we consider what was reported on "Good Morning Washington." [...]

PAUL RYAN’S LAME CRITICS

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

The secular left is more terrified of religion than it is STDs, and indeed it treats people of faith as if they harbored some deadly infectious disease. Witness the hyperventilating over Rep. Paul Ryan's statement of faith following the Texas killings. When asked by Laura Ingraham to comment on what happened at the Texas church on [...]

LAWRENCE O’DONNELL RIPS IRISH CATHOLICS

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

When a person makes a mean-spirited bigoted comment, he is not exculpated if he is a member of the group he disparages. What matters is not the biography of the bigot: what matters is the bigoted comment. Lawrence O'Donnell proved once again that he, as an Irish Catholic, is not immune from charges of anti-Catholicism. Here [...]

NEW YORK TIMES’ FLAWED REPORT ON IRISH HOMES

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

In a recent New York Times piece, "The Lost Children of Tuam," about an Irish Mother and Baby Home, reporter Dan Barry tries desperately to affirm the unsubstantiated claims made by Catherine Corless, a secretary with no academic or research credentials, about the Mother and Baby Home in Tuam, Ireland. He fails. His account is more [...]

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION SPIKES

By |2017-12-27T20:17:48+00:00December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

All across the nation, students are learning about genocide committed in the twentieth century, yet most know next to nothing about genocide taking place right now. That's partly because the victims are Christians: many academics and journalists have become accustomed to seeing Christians as victimizers, not victims, thus leaving them unmoved when reports surface about genocide [...]

NUNS GET TRASHED IN “NOVITIATE”

By |2017-12-27T20:17:48+00:00December 27th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

There is a reason why "Novitiate" opened in only two cities recently, New York and Los Angeles, even though it has Sony money behind it: the appetite for Catholic-bashing movies is greatest in those two cities. Hollywood, fresh off a sex scandal involving women and children, is a bastion of liberalism, a place where stereotypes of [...]
