OXFORD, COVINGTON, ABORTION; ALL MERIT STRONG RESPONSE

By |2019-03-20T18:34:32+00:00March 20th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Since the last edition of Catalyst, we addressed more than twenty important issues, ranging from anti-Catholicism in the arts to insulting politicians, but none commanded our attention more than three subjects: the Oxford Union, Covington Catholic High School, and the new abortion laws in New York and Virginia. We garnered significant press coverage for all three [...]

POPE NAILS CUOMO

By |2019-03-20T18:34:32+00:00March 20th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Pope Francis didn't mention New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo by name, but his remarks nailed him anyway. Last month, Cuomo implored Albany lawmakers to "follow the leadership of Pope Francis" by passing the Child Victims Act. Indeed, he wore his Catholic credentials on his sleeve, boasting of his allegiance to the pope on several occasions. He [...]

THE PERILS OF SENTIMENTALISM

By |2019-03-20T18:34:32+00:00March 20th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

Bill Donohue To be sentimental about certain things in life is not only normal, it is admirable. But sentimentalism is different. One of the definitions found in The Free Dictionary defines it as "excessive indulgence in sentiment or emotionalism, predominance of feeling over reason and intellect." That is not admirable. Indeed, it can be perilous. This [...]

OXFORD UNION SPONSORS STAGED DEBATE

By |2019-03-20T18:34:33+00:00March 20th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Is the Oxford Union committing suicide? It is one thing to lie to me after being disinvited from participating in a debate on February 28, quite another to knife itself by staging a phony debate on the Catholic Church. "This House Believes That England Can Never Pay For Its Sins Against Irish Catholics." Imagine a debate [...]

VIDEO EXONERATES CATHOLIC STUDENTS

By |2019-03-20T18:34:33+00:00March 20th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

There were three parties to the dustup that occurred on January 18. Catholic students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky, who had participated in the March for Life, assembled on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial waiting for buses to take them home. In the same vicinity were Native Americans; they had come for the [...]

ASSESSING THE COVINGTON CATHOLIC CRITICS

By |2019-03-20T18:34:33+00:00March 20th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Having addressed the events of January 18, Bill Donohue now wants to assess some of the most prominent critics of the Covington Catholic students. That the students were not the guilty party in the dustup is obvious to every fair-minded person who has seen, or learned about, the second video. Donohue did not issue a statement [...]

MEET THE INDIAN AND BLACK THUGS

By |2019-03-20T18:34:33+00:00March 20th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The Catholic white boys from Covington Catholic High School—hated because they are Catholic, white, male, and Trump supporters (some of them)—have been indicted by lots of pundits, politicians, reporters, and celebrities, both liberal and conservative. Yet the record shows that the students were the only innocent party to this fracas. None of them said or did [...]

CUOMO’S DREAM HAS COME TRUE

By |2019-03-20T18:34:33+00:00March 20th, 2019|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream: it was to unite the races. While that dream remains unfulfilled, much progress has been made, thanks largely to him. Gov. Andrew Cuomo also had a dream: to allow children to be killed in their mother's womb right up until birth by non-physicians. Now his dream has been [...]
