“Have a holly, jolly, bloody good Christmas with these tampon crafts.” That was on the homepage of tamponcrafts.com: the website offers instructions on how to construct nativity scenes out of tampons, including Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and the Three Wise Men. Indeed, it advises the reader to “Gather ‘round the manger for the Christmas Miracle. These three [...]

GAYS CONDEMN SALVATION ARMY

By |2017-03-20T17:51:35-04:00January 30th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The Salvation Army was under attack from homosexual activists this Christmas season for merely holding Christian beliefs on marriage and the family—it does not discriminate against anyone. The war extended to a formal resolution by the Associated Students of the University of California at Berkeley calling for a ban of Salvation Army donation boxes on campus; [...]

CHRISTMAS IN THE WORKPLACE

By |2013-01-30T18:59:27-05:00January 30th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

A piece by Richard Fausta was recently posted on the website of Business Review Europe commenting on how Brits should celebrate Christmas in the workplace. It certainly had application to Americans during Christmastime. Fausta said “Office decorations during the Christmas season is seen as one reason toward the notion that employees can lose focus.” For example, [...]

The following towns and cities were hit by vandals this year: Birmingham, AL; Madison, AL; Live Oak, CA; Longmont, CA; San Diego, CA; Torrington, CT; Frostproof, FL; South Bend, IN; Granger, IN; [...]

MARK THOMPSON GETS A PASS

By |2013-01-30T18:59:30-05:00January 30th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Former BBC chief, and current New York Times Company president, Mark Thompson, was cleared of wrongdoing in the BBC case involving Jimmy Savile following a lengthy report that was issued in December. It is entirely plausible that Mark Thompson had nothing to do with spiking the BBC “Newsnight” story on BBC child rapist Jimmy Savile. It [...]

POPE’S TWITTER ACCOUNT SCARES FOES

By |2013-01-30T18:59:31-05:00January 30th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Much of the world’s reaction to the pope’s use of Twitter was extraordinarily positive, but his enemies had a field day. The Kansas City Star and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette have long been among the most anti-Catholic newspapers in the nation. So it is not surprising that their love for abortion rights and the right of two [...]

BISHOP FINN AND THE CATHOLIC LEFT

By |2017-03-20T17:51:35-04:00January 30th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The Catholic Left has been trying to unseat Kansas City-St. Joseph Bishop Robert Finn for well over a year. Their effort recently received a boost from the New York Times. We decided to respond. The Times said that Finn’s misdemeanor conviction “stemmed from his failure to report the Rev. Shawn Ratigan to the authorities after hundreds [...]

HHS MANDATE TAKES A HIT

By |2013-01-30T18:59:34-05:00January 30th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

In December the U.S. District Court handed down a ruling which allowed the Archdiocese of New York to proceed with its lawsuit against the Health and Human Services (HHS) abortifacient mandate. Not only did the Obama administration lose, it received a well deserved lecture from the bench: it was taken to task for misrepresenting the current [...]

OBAMACARE RELIGION ISSUE RESURFACES

By |2013-01-30T18:59:35-05:00January 30th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The U.S. Supreme Court recently ordered the Fourth Circuit of Appeals to hear the constitutional issues involved in two provisions of ObamaCare, formally known as the Affordable Care Act. Previously, the circuit court ruled that a challenge by Liberty University to ObamaCare was premature, but now the high court has vacated that decision. The key aspect [...]

“MEA MAXIMA CULPA” IS A FRAUD

By |2013-01-30T18:59:36-05:00January 30th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The HBO produced film, “Mea Maxima Culpa,” recently completed its New York City run. Full of fallacies, the documentary is nothing less than propaganda. Director Alex Gibney would have us believe that he has proven a “direct connection of the Vatican” to the homosexual scandal, though his effort fails miserably (the horror-film soundtrack is laughable). As [...]
