POLITICIZING CHRISTMAS; REVOLT AGAINST INTOLERANCE

By |2017-03-20T17:47:17+00:00January 26th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

No religious holiday sparks as much controversy as Christmas. It's not because most Americans are anti-Christmas—they are not. It's because so many activists, public officials, and educators are working against them. Quite frankly, they have unnecessarily politicized Christmas. Some of them are bigots; some are ignorant of what the courts have ruled; and some are simply [...]

The whole world knows that Christians have been targeted for genocide by radical Muslims, yet we still don't have a congressional resolution, supported by our president, affirming this reality.

ABORTION KILLS, USUALLY

By |2017-03-20T17:47:17+00:00January 26th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

William A. Donohue Melissa Ohden should have died in 1977, but the abortion failed. On September 9, 2015, the founder of Abortion Survivors Network testified before the House Judiciary Committee to explain her story. I cannot improve on her testimony, so I offer an excerpt: "From 'botched abortion' to 'the dreaded complication of abortion' (a child [...]

The edict issued by the University of Tennessee's Office of Diversity and Inclusion effectively banning Christmas celebrations on the campus drew the ire of local and federal public officials, students, faculty, and alumni. From Bill Donohue's perspective, it was not only offensive to Christians, it was constitutionally suspect. Following Donohue's issuance of the above letter, requesting [...]

The school superintendent in Marlborough, New Hampshire, Robert Malay, banned use of the word "Christmas" from all Christmas events, including celebrations at the local American Legion post. He said he was constitutionally obligated to censor Christmas. This, of course, is a lie. Instead of pleading with Malay to reconsider his decision, Bill Donohue contacted him and [...]

DID CHRISTIANITY INSPIRE ABORTION KILLER?

By |2017-03-20T17:47:18+00:00January 26th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

A recent New York Times front-page story, "Religion, Abuse and Rage in Colorado's Suspect's Trial," tried to establish a connection between the Planned Parenthood killer, Robert Dear, and Christianity. But most of the article described his multiple abuses of women. This explained why a Washington Post story from the same day was titled, "Colo. Shooting Suspect [...]
