On June 17, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Catholic foster care agencies can reject gay couples from adopting children. This was a huge victory for religious liberty and a resounding defeat for LGBTQ activists. It was these activists who launched a contrived assault on the rights of Catholic social service agencies—no gay or transgender [...]

Pope Francis recently did the Catholic Church a great service in issuing some much needed changes in the Vatican's Code of Canon Law. The new reforms provide sanctions against priests who "groom" or "induce" minors to perform sex acts. Similarly, the possession of child pornography is declared a crime deserving of punishment. The most dramatic changes [...]

Christopher D. Stone is not exactly a household name, but he clearly left his mark on the "rights" movement. The University of Southern California law professor recently died. More well known was his father, I.F. Stone, whom the New York Times obituary on Christopher called a "crusading reporter." They left out that he was also a [...]

CHURCH’S TAX-EXEMPT STATUS THREATENED

By |2021-07-22T15:29:24-04:00July 22nd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

In the late 1980s, the ACLU filed an amicus brief in a lawsuit that sought to revoke the tax-exempt status of the Catholic Church because of its teaching on abortion. Now abortion is the subject of a threat to do the same, this time coming from a sitting member of the House of Representatives. Rep. Jared [...]

CATHOLIC DEMOCRATS LECTURE THE BISHOPS

By |2021-07-22T15:29:24-04:00July 22nd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Seems like everyone is lecturing the bishops these days. The latest to do so are 59 Democrats who identify as Catholics. Leading the charge is Rep. Rosa DeLauro. On June 18, DeLauro issued a "Statement of Principles" that chastises the bishops for addressing the issue of Catholic public figures who reject core Catholic moral teachings; 73% [...]

A sex education bill is being considered in some states that is the most wildly irresponsible assault on common decency and common sense ever proposed. In a stealth move, it was passed by Illinois state lawmakers on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend; Governor J.B. Pritzker did not sign it, but if he does nothing, it [...]

There is nothing new about the National Catholic Reporter working to undermine Catholic teachings, but their June 3rd editorial is in a class of its own. The backdrop to the Reporter's angst was the June 16 virtual meeting of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). The bishops discussed, among other items, what to do [...]

President Biden says he is a "devout Catholic," yet he continues to oppose many of the most serious Catholic teachings that bear on public policy. This is of great concern to the bishops, and a large contingent of them are considering whether Biden is deserving of Holy Communion. They took up this issue in a virtual [...]

THE BISHOPS ARE NOT PARTISANS

By |2021-07-22T15:29:26-04:00July 22nd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Critics of the bishops are accusing them of being political partisans. They are wrong. It is simply false to argue that the USCCB is a political tool of either the Republicans or the Democrats. The USCCB has praised and criticized the leaders of both parties, depending on their policies and how they mesh with Catholic teachings [...]
