“SCANDAL” ABORTION SHOW DECONSTRUCTED

By |2017-03-20T17:47:26+00:00November 23rd, 2015|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue comments on the midseason finale of "Scandal": Last week's episode of the Shonda Rhimes show, "Scandal," featured Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington, having an abortion. While her child is being aborted, "Silent Night" plays in the background; the show ends with a self-satisfied Pope listening to "Ave Maria." What makes Rhimes tick? After [...]

RIGHT-WING NUTS RIP CARDINAL WUERL

By |2017-03-20T17:47:26+00:00November 20th, 2015|Categories: Latest News Releases|Tags: |

Bill Donohue addresses recent attacks on Cardinal Donald Wuerl: The crazies on the Catholic right have set their sights on Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington. Why? Because he is close to Pope Francis, and they hate the pope. The attacks are coming from The Church Militant, a loose gang of angry right-wingers who specialize in [...]

NEW YORK TIMES MALIGNS SAINT; NO EVIDENCE PROVIDED

By |2017-03-20T17:47:27+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).

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 [...]

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.

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 [...]
