By |2020-05-18T16:24:22-04:00May 18th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

On April 6, Cardinal George Pell's conviction on five counts of sexual abuse was unanimously overturned by Australia's High Court. He was never guilty of these charges in the first place. The decision by the High Court cannot be challenged. Pell has suffered greatly and has been the victim of outrageous lies. He has been smeared, [...]

By |2020-05-18T16:24:22-04:00May 18th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

In the last issue of Catalyst, we reprinted Bill Donohue's letter to the House Ethics Committee asking that Rep. Rashida Tlaib be formally reprimanded for her obscene assault on the sensibilities of religious Americans. We also listed an email contact for her. She got bombarded with angry emails from Catholics and she immediately started walking it [...]

William A. Donohue The coronavirus pandemic led to thousands of deaths, overrun mortuaries, untold suffering, burnt-out hospital staff, economic hardship, and psychological distress. It also gave millions a time to renew their faith, or come back to it. But is prayer a reliable tonic? Yes. Is there scientific data to back it up? Yes. One leading [...]

Bill Donohue Russell Shaw, Eight Popes and the Crisis of Modernity (Ignatius Press) Today we turn on the Internet to do our research. Those researching the Catholic Church would find their job easier if they simply called Russell Shaw. Not for nothing do I call him a walking encyclopedia of the Catholic Church. Shaw has done [...]

PELL’S RELEASE TRIGGERS BACKLASH

By |2020-05-18T16:24:22-04:00May 18th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Most people are normal and desire justice. Abnormal people prize revenge. A case in point is the reaction to the release of Cardinal George Pell from an Australian prison. Normal people are happy with the news, but there are always the abnormal ones. Neither the Boston Globe, New York Times nor the Washington Post—the three most [...]

ARE BANS ON CHURCH GATHERINGS KOSHER?

By |2020-05-18T16:24:22-04:00May 18th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

In Michigan, New York, and Ohio, churches are exempt from bans on large gatherings at this time due to the coronavirus. Indiana, Louisiana, and Virginia have decided to extend the ban to churches. This is definitely a state issue: the Trump administration has wisely stayed out of it. At the state level, this is a difficult [...]

ABORTION ACTIVISTS ENDANGER PUBLIC HEALTH

By |2020-05-18T16:24:23-04:00May 18th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Should abortions be considered elective surgery and therefore not be permitted during the coronavirus pandemic, or are they an essential healthcare issue that should be permitted? Predictably, in pro-life states like Ohio and Texas officials are saying abortions constitute elective surgery and should therefore not be allowed, while in pro-abortion states like Massachusetts and Washington, officials [...]

BLAMING CHRISTIANS FOR THE VIRUS IS PARANOID

By |2020-05-18T16:24:23-04:00May 18th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It is not unusual for authors of a new book to seize opportunities to plug their work. But the March 27 op-ed in the New York Times by Katherine Stewart breaks new ground. After inventing a bogey man—"Christian Nationalists"—she then blames them for the coronavirus. Here is some background information. When George W. Bush won reelection [...]

ATHEISTS RIP PENCE FOR CHURCH DONATION APPEAL

By |2020-05-18T16:24:23-04:00May 18th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Organized atheists, unlike most Americans who are non-believers, are more often than not driven by hatred of religion and the faithful. Their impulses are totalitarian: they would ban all religious expression if they could. A classic case is Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). FFRF has gone ballistic because Vice President Mike Pence recently implored Americans to [...]

DE BLASIO FEARS “CHRISTIAN VIRUS”

By |2020-05-18T16:24:23-04:00May 18th, 2020|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Rev. Franklin Graham could have chosen to simply ask his people to pray for New Yorkers hit hard with coronavirus. But instead he recruited 72 doctors, nurses and other medical personnel from Samaritan's Purse, an evangelical group, to set up a 68-bed facility in Central Park; it is operated in partnership with the Mount Sinai Health [...]
