By |2021-03-18T13:05:11-04:00March 18th, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Once again state lawmakers attempted to bust the seal of the confessional, and once again they withdrew their bill under pressure from the Catholic League. Two years ago it was California lawmakers who tried to violate our sacramental right. Last year it was Utah. This year it was North Dakota. All three bills were introduced citing [...]

VICTORY OVER TWITTER

By |2021-03-18T13:05:11-04:00March 18th, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Three hours after we listed the email address of a key official at Twitter, asking our subscribers to protest its decision to freeze the account of a Catholic media outlet, Twitter reversed itself and unlocked the account. Catholic World Report (CWR) is a respectable Catholic media outlet. On January 24, it received notice from Twitter that [...]

William A. Donohue In the December edition of "President's Desk," I wrote a piece titled, "Buckle Your Seat Belts—Again." I referenced a "President's Desk" essay I wrote in December 2008 wherein I noted that we were smack right in the middle of a culture war. I added, "the culture war is about to explode." My point [...]

BLACKS EXCEL IN CATHOLIC SCHOOLS

Bill Donohue Catholic League members who received our February appeal will remember that I was not too happy when Ben & Jerry's, the ice cream company owned by two left-wing radicals, and Colin Kaepernick, the failed quarterback turned left-wing activist, teamed together to push an invidious message: "I Know My Rights." The one thing young men [...]

MEDIA BLACKOUT OF NAZI-LIKE EVENT

By |2021-03-18T13:05:12-04:00March 18th, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

In the 1930s, Nazis routinely invaded religious services at synagogues. There have been many copycat events in the United States since that time, most of which have taken place in Catholic churches. The latest incident took place on January 22, the 48th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion-on-demand. The venue was St. Joseph [...]

CATHOLIC SCHOOL FALSELY ACCUSED

By |2021-03-18T13:05:12-04:00March 18th, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It was a quick turnaround. We protested a false story and it was immediately corrected. Maggie Baska was named a reporter for PinkNews, a gay media outlet from the UK, on January 27, 2021. She no sooner was hired when she proved to be a total incompetent, falsely accusing a Catholic school of something it never [...]

DEMONIZING WHITE CHRISTIANS

By |2021-03-18T13:05:13-04:00March 18th, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Much to the chagrin of the Christian left, they have never been able to gain traction. This accounts, at least in part, for their animus against conservative Christians, who, unlike those on the left, carry significant political and cultural weight. The most recent manifestation of the Christian left's hostility to conservative Christians is their invention of [...]

RESISTANCE TO POPE’S PLEAS GROWING IN U.S.

By |2021-03-18T13:05:13-04:00March 18th, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

There is nothing new about the Catholic Church's opposition to abortion or human trafficking, but what Pope Francis said about them on February 8 is worth a closer look. The pope decried the fact that many nations are retreating on these key life issues. What he said bears application to the vector of change apparent in [...]

HOW CATHOLIC ARE CONGRESSIONAL CATHOLICS?

In the 117th Congress, Catholics comprise 29% of the seats, the largest of any religious affiliation. Moreover, both the Speaker of the House and the president identify as Catholic. But just how Catholic are these Catholics? We reviewed the scorecard of incumbent representatives and senators as tallied by National Right to Life and NARAL, the two [...]

BIDEN STIFFS THE POPE

By |2021-03-18T13:05:14-04:00March 18th, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

On November 12, Pope Francis called President-elect Joe Biden to congratulate him on his electoral victory. He surely thought that the incoming president would make Catholics proud to have one of their own in the White House. One wonders what the Holy Father now thinks of Biden. On January 28, the White House announced that Biden [...]
