HILLARY TO CHURCH—CHANGE ON ABORTION

Recently, Hillary Clinton delivered a speech at the Women in the World Summit in New York City. It was not surprising that Hillary Clinton, who strongly opposes a ban on partial-birth abortion, would tell her feminist audience that she supports Planned Parenthood. What was surprising was her comment on the need to change religious beliefs on [...]

BOBBY JINDAL GETS IT

By |2015-07-07T16:31:47-04:00June 6th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

A few weeks ago, an op-ed written by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal was featured in the New York Times. Governor Bobby Jindal is more than a practicing Catholic—he is a man who will not change his "faith-driven view" of marriage, even if other public officials are willing to do so. Nor should he. His recent statement [...]

APPALLING LACK OF CONCERN FOR CHRISTIANS

By |2015-07-07T16:31:48-04:00June 6th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The following article by Bill Donohue was published by Newsmax on April 29: "Why Doesn't the Left Advocate for Persecuted Christians?" That is the question recently raised by Lucia Annunziata in the Italian edition of the Huffington Post. Annunziata is a courageous woman—it takes guts for an atheist journalist to call out her friends on the [...]

NEWSWEEK SHOCKED THAT POPE WON’T CHANGE

By |2015-07-07T16:31:48-04:00June 6th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Just recently, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments on same-sex marriage. For some reason, Newsweek thought that this would entice the pope to change on this subject. For example, here is what Newsweek tweeted a few weeks ago: "Pope Francis still is against gay marriage even as the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments." It showed [...]

KANSAS CITY STAR GETS INTRUSIVE

By |2015-07-07T16:31:49-04:00June 6th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Kansas City Star editorial writer Yael T. Abouhalkah's mother should have told her son to mind his own business. He writes for the notoriously anti-Catholic newspaper, the Kansas City Star, and recently lectured Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas about his decision to have Bishop Robert Finn preside at two ordinations that took place [...]

OBAMA NEEDS A REALITY CHECK

By |2017-03-20T17:47:57-04:00June 6th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

A couple of weeks ago, President Obama spoke at the Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit on Overcoming Poverty at Georgetown University. Much of what President Obama said about poverty was insightful and accurate, but he made some statements that deserve a rejoinder. President Obama clearly understands, intellectually, the need for character formation and the role that values play [...]

VIACOM’S OFFENSIVE “SACRED HEART” AD

By |2017-03-20T17:48:08-04:00June 6th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Viacom has long been known for its anti-Catholic fare on Comedy Central and other networks. The Catholic League has dealt with them many times, both before and after their split with CBS. And Bill Donohue treasures the letters from head honcho Sumner Redstone defending bigotry as purely a free speech issue. Recently Viacom pushed new buttons: [...]

A recent New York Times op-ed page article by Frank Bruni applauded Pope Francis for remarks he made a few weeks ago on women where he called for equal pay for equal work. But the cheers didn't last long. "He left out the part about women in the Roman Catholic Church not even getting a shot [...]

WHAT COUNTS AS OFFENSIVE?

By |2015-07-07T16:29:55-04:00June 6th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

There was a time when conduct deemed to be offensive, especially of a sexual nature, was condemned by everyone. But not today: what matters is the identity of the offender, not the conduct. A couple of weeks ago, David Letterman warmed up his audience by making a joke about women. He said, "Treat a lady like [...]
