NEW YORK TIMES MALIGNS SAINT; NO EVIDENCE PROVIDED

By |2019-09-20T20:06:21+00:00November 18th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

On September 30, when Bill Donohue read a New York Times front-page story on Saint Junípero Serra, he could hardly believe his eyes. The 17th century priest, who championed the rights of Indians, had just been canonized by Pope Francis the week before. So it came as a shock to read that he was accused of [...]

SYNOD SHOWS SPUNK

By |2015-11-18T20:25:11+00:00November 18th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The Synod of Bishops has concluded in Rome. Occasionally contentious, it succeeded in addressing a wide range of issues that touch on the family. Most agree that a lot of spunk was shown. Pope Francis will have the final say. The Holy Father got the Synod off to a good start with his opening homily. The [...]

William A. Donohue [Editor's note: This is a slightly longer version of an article that first appeared online at Newsmax.] If they want to keep their jobs, the girls at Playboy have to put their clothes back on (or at least their pants). As reported in the October 13 edition of the New York Times, that [...]

In November 2014, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith sponsored an international colloquium on the complementarity of man and woman in marriage; it was co-hosted by several Pontifical Councils. Pope Francis opened the event with a stirring address, and he was followed by approximately 400 scholars and religious leaders from around the world. Plough [...]

NEW YORK TIMES SMEAR OF FR. SERRA STANDS

By |2015-11-18T20:25:13+00:00November 18th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

After the New York Times ran a front-page story that smeared St. Junipero Serra, repeated attempts to have the paper correct the record failed. On the day that Laura M. Holson's news story appeared, "Sainthood of Serra Reopens Wounds of Colonialism in California," Bill Donohue sent her the following email: You said that "Historians agree" that [...]

NEW YORK TIMES REMAINS DEFIANT ON SERRA

By |2015-11-18T20:25:13+00:00November 18th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The following exchange occurred on October 8: Dear Mr. Donohue: You might have been busy with your news release of October 1 and did not have a chance to keep up with Laura Holson's coverage of the shooting in Oregon. She began filing from Oregon last Friday.   So while our editors discussed your complaint when it [...]

COULTER LEADS PACK OF CRAZIES AGAINST POPE

By |2017-03-20T17:47:27+00:00November 18th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

What do Ann Coulter and the Westboro Baptist Church have in common? Both are obscene anti-Catholics. Indeed, they are the worst of Pope Francis' vile critics to emerge during his visit to the United States. Coulter recently tweeted that the Catholic Church was "largely built by pedophiles." This is the kind of comment we might expect [...]

CORRECTION GRANTED

A recent story in the Los Angeles Times on immigration and the Catholic Church said that Bill Donohue and the Catholic League were opposed to immigration reform. This is not true, we said. (In fact, we don't know anyone who doesn't want some reforms.) After doing some fact-checking, the paper corrected the story in a later [...]

Last May, Pope Francis spoke about allegations that the bishop of Osorno, Chile, Juan Barros, was complicit in a crime of priestly sexual abuse. The bishop, who was installed in March, has come under fire for covering up the abuses of Father Fernando Karadima. The priest was found guilty by the Vatican in 2011; the following [...]

“CHRISTIAN LIVES DON’T MATTER”

By |2015-11-18T20:25:15+00:00November 18th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Here is what Chris Harper-Mercer said to his victims just before he killed them in Oregon: "Are you Christian?" After they stood up he said, "Good, because you're Christian, you are going to see God in just about one second." He then shot them. Another eyewitness said that after he asked if they were Christian, "then [...]
