CHRISTIAN GENOCIDE UNFURLS; JIHADISTS ON THE MARCH

By |2014-09-18T17:54:20+00:00September 18th, 2014|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The Middle East is coming apart as murderous Muslim madmen move from nation to nation killing everyone who does not accept their twisted beliefs. Christians, Jews, Kurds, the Yezidi—even Muslims who differ with them—are being slaughtered. Children are being beheaded, crucifixions are rampant, and monasteries are being ransacked, all in the name of Islam. In the [...]

D.C. LIBRARY PIVOTS

By |2017-03-20T17:49:55+00:00September 18th, 2014|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

Over the summer we learned that the Library of Congress had scheduled a presentation titled, "The Book and the Reformation," sponsored by the Rare Book and Special Collections Division. We certainly did not object to an event on the Reformation, but what caught our eye was the way the Library of Congress flagged it. The flyer [...]

THE QUEST TO SCALP A BISHOP

By |2017-03-20T17:49:56+00:00September 18th, 2014|Categories: Catalyst, Special Reports|Tags: |

This is a special report which was originally published in the September 2014 issue of Catalyst.  The Catholic Church has many enemies these days, some of whom are ex-Catholics who left the Church a long time ago. They are joined by the disaffected, those who pretend (even convincing themselves) that they are Catholics in good standing. [...]

WE STAND WITH ARCHBISHOP NIENSTEDT

By |2014-09-18T17:53:24+00:00September 18th, 2014|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

St. Paul and Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt is the target of a well organized attack by some very vindictive people. As my special report makes clear (see Special Reports), he is not the only bishop drawing fire these days; bishops from the Mid-West are particularly open to assault. We cannot allow a small but determined band [...]

OBAMA REJECTS RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION

By |2017-03-20T17:49:56+00:00September 18th, 2014|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

For 20 years, Congress failed to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), suggesting that the legislation must be burdened with more than just a few controversial features. President Clinton and President Bush respected the right of the legislature not to pass the bill, but President Obama is different: he said he signed it because the bill [...]

NEW ASSAULT ON RELIGIOUS RIGHTS

By |2014-09-18T17:39:48+00:00September 18th, 2014|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Anticipating a loss in the Hobby Lobby case, the Obama administration, together with Congressional Democrats, worked overtime this year on a law that would effectively gut the high court ruling. They also plotted to gut the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), upon which the case was based. This assault on the First Amendment was recently presented [...]

BID TO KILL RELIGIOUS RIGHTS FAILS

By |2014-09-18T17:32:36+00:00September 18th, 2014|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Recently, the Senate voted on the Protect Women's Health from Corporate Interference Act. The assault on religious liberty lost as the Senate failed to achieve the 60 votes necessary to advance this bill. While the outcome is welcome, the fact that a majority of Senators, almost all Democrats, are still bent on eviscerating the religious liberty [...]

TOO MANY CATHOLICS ON THE BENCH?

By |2014-09-18T17:30:53+00:00September 18th, 2014|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

"Once again an all-Catholic, all-male, all-ultra-conservative majority of five has voted en bloc to eviscerate fundamental rights," said Annie Laurie Gaylor of the atheist Freedom From Religion Foundation. Yup. Catholics always conspire to do things "en bloc" (save for Sonia). "Court's Catholic Justices Attack Women's Rights" was the headline of Margery Eagan's Boston Herald article (it's [...]

ATHEIST BIGOTS SLAM CATHOLICS

By |2014-09-18T17:28:47+00:00September 18th, 2014|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Recently, the Freedom From Religion Foundation placed a full-page ad in the New York Times. Most atheists are not bigots, but many atheists who are activists most definitely are. Among them are the anti-Catholics who work at the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). A few weeks ago in the New York Times, FFRF took out its [...]
