JOURNAL SENTINEL SHOWS ITS BIAS

Many bishops have made public the names of suspected sexual offenders. By contrast, not a single institution, secular or religious, has done likewise. To be sure, this brazen honesty has persuaded fair-minded people to applaud such efforts, but others seek to exploit. For example, in July the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel featured pictures of 45 priests who [...]

RACIAL AND RELIGIOUS PROFILING

“There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down a street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery—then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.” According to those who have slammed George Zimmerman for racial profiling, those words would qualify as the penultimate expression of [...]

LETTERMAN LIBELS POPE AND PRIESTS

During his July 23 monologue, David Letterman mentioned Pope Francis’ appearance at World Youth Day in Brazil: “And I’m telling you if there’s anything the kids can’t get enough of, it’s a 76-year-old virgin. Come on! World Youth Day. Or as the Vatican calls it, salute to altar boys.” Some people can’t be shamed. David Letterman [...]

“HAIL SATAN!” PRO-ABORTION FANS

By |2017-03-20T17:51:05-04:00September 10th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

While pro-life protesters were singing “Amazing Grace” recently in Austin, pro-abortion fans were screaming “Hail Satan!” (A video of this scene is available on TheBlaze.) It would be unfair to say that all pro-abortion supporters would support this obscenity, and indeed most would not. Among hardcore activists, though, there are no doubt more than just a [...]

CONAN LANDS LOW BLOW

On a recent episode of Conan O’Brien’s TBS show, the host took a cheap shot at the pope and the Church. Unlike Jay Leno and David Letterman, the Catholic League has rarely had a problem with Conan O’Brien. But recently he took several shots at the Catholic Church, one of which was clearly below the belt. [...]

At the Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts, a new study has recently been released by the school’s Center for the Study of Global Christianity, titled “Christianity in its Global Context, 1970-2020.” What are the study’s conclusions? Well, it looks as if the best days for agnostics and atheists are long past. In 1970, [...]

U.N. ATTACKS VATICAN

In June, both Israel and B’nai B’rith International blasted a totally politicized report by the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child that condemned Israel for its treatment of Palestinians. The disgraced Committee then attacked the Holy See: it demanded that the Vatican turn over every document it has on priestly sexual abuse, and wants [...]

SMEARING EVANGELICALS

Family Research Council (FRC) president Tony Perkins and allies have urged support for Rep. John Fleming’s military religious freedom amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, to secure religious liberty for members of the armed forces. The Catholic League joined with them, noting how Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, has repeatedly smeared [...]

THE ATHEIST “CHAPLAINS” PLOY

By |2017-03-20T17:51:05-04:00September 10th, 2013|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

A proposed amendment to the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act would add atheist “chaplains” to the armed forces. The principal organization pushing this idea is the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers, whose president, Jason Torpy, claims it’s unfair for Christians et al. to have chaplains, but not atheists. Nationwide, atheists have no chaplains; vegetarians also [...]
