NATIVITY SCENE VICTORY; AUTHORITIES YIELD

By |2021-02-03T10:01:34-05:00February 3rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

It was a fast turnaround. The day after we notified local government officials in upstate New York that they were unconstitutionally banning a nativity scene, they yielded. A few weeks before Christmas, we were contacted by Knights of Columbus Council #275 about their being denied the right to erect a nativity scene outside the Ulster County [...]

THUGGERY IS CHIC

By |2021-02-03T10:01:35-05:00February 3rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

It is a myth to maintain that the First Amendment guarantees the right of the people to assemble. It does not. It guarantees "the right of the people peaceably to assemble." The adverb was penned by Madison to disavow claims that the aggrieved have a right to express themselves any way they want. Unfortunately, his admonition [...]

Bill Donohue The following is a shortened version of what is posted on our website. When I became president and CEO of the Catholic League in 1993, the lion's share of anti-Catholic bigotry stemmed from the entertainment industry and the media. Fast forward to today and we find that the primary source of anti-Catholicism is government. [...]

BISHOPS BESET BY BIDEN

By |2021-02-03T10:01:35-05:00February 3rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

A few weeks after the election, the head of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), Archbishop José Gomez, indicated that the bishops are already beset by Biden. If Biden were a Protestant, it would not complicate matters for the bishops, but he is a baptized Catholic. Gomez said there were some policies, such as [...]

MEDIA ENAMORED OF BIDEN’S FAITH

By |2021-02-03T10:01:36-05:00February 3rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

CNN ran a piece December 13 noting that Joe Biden goes to church, prays, and carries a rosary. Right after the election, America, the Jesuit media outlet, commented that Biden prays and carries a rosary. Back in September, NPR observed that Biden uses "biblical language," prays, is a "deeply devout person of faith," and, of course, [...]

CATHOLICS CANNOT TRUST NEERA TANDEN

By |2021-02-03T10:01:36-05:00February 3rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Joe Biden has nominated Neera Tanden to direct the Office of Management and Budget in his administration. It is a bad choice. There are several reasons why Catholics cannot trust her. Tanden heads the Center for American Progress (CAP), a left-wing think tank funded by Big Tech and Wall Street. She is a long-time Democratic operative [...]

BECERRA IS A THREAT TO LIFE AND LIBERTY

By |2021-02-03T10:01:36-05:00February 3rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It would be hard to find any public servant more anti-life and anti-religious liberty than Xavier Becerra. Yet he has been named by Joe Biden to be his Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), a post that directly impacts on life and religious liberty. Becerra is the Attorney General of California, with no background in [...]

BECERRA’S CATHOLICITY POSES A PROBLEM

By |2021-02-03T10:01:37-05:00February 3rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It is indisputable that Xavier Becerra is a threat to life—at its beginning and at its natural ending—and to religious liberty. This alone is enough for practicing Catholics to be outraged, but given that he claims Catholic status, it spells grave danger. Like many Catholic politicians who rail against the most serious public policy positions of [...]

Donohue wrote to Jacob a few weeks earlier asking him to renounce his remarks and pledge not [...]
