The findings of the Catholic League-commissioned survey were made available just before we went to press; a more complete analysis will be offered in the October issue. In the first week of August, The Polling Company, headed by Kellyanne Conway, conducted a nationwide scientific survey of 1,000 Catholics. They were randomly chosen from telephone sample lists, [...]

William A. Donohue Propaganda experts are already out in force and Pope Francis has yet to come to the U.S. Propaganda is the deliberate skewing of information done for the purpose of altering public opinion about a cause, institution, or leader. Proponents seek to manipulate the public by engaging in hyperbole and falsehoods. The way the [...]

BOTH PARTIES HAVE A “POPE PROBLEM”

By |2017-03-20T17:47:35+00:00September 30th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The mainstream media likes to say that the Republican candidates for president have a "pope problem," meaning that their views are out of sync with those of Pope Francis. They are wrong: both parties have a "pope problem," and by comparison the Republicans come out better. Here is how the media are spinning it. On July [...]

WASHINGTON POST EXPLOITS PAPAL VISIT

By |2017-03-20T17:47:35+00:00September 30th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Whenever there is a papal visit to the U.S., those with their own political agenda surface, aided and abetted by members of the mainstream media. Michelle Boorstein did this on August 14 in the Washington Post. Her article read more like an op-ed than a news story when she dug up the sexual abuse scandal, drumming [...]

PLANNED PARENTHOOD’S UNNECESSARY APOLOGY

By |2017-03-20T17:47:35+00:00September 30th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

It is axiomatic that apologies should never be given in instances where there is no wrongdoing. That is why Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards' apology was unnecessary. Yes, one of her employees admitted to harvesting the organs of unborn babies for commercial purposes. But this is routine at the abortion mill. That the female doctor was [...]

UPROAR OVER CECIL THE LION

By |2015-09-30T16:33:16+00:00September 30th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The killing of a lion, named Cecil, has spawned widespread outrage. Curiously, those who are protesting the loudest seem to have no problem with a doctor who kills little Cecilia in her mother's womb. Mia Farrow took to Twitter to register her disgust. In 2002, she spoke at a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood, and in 2008 [...]

PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER RIPS PHILLY ARCHDIOCESE

By |2017-03-20T17:47:35+00:00September 30th, 2015|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Over the summer, an independent Catholic school in the Philadelphia area decided that it could no longer employ its director of religious education. Why? Because she refused to abide by the teachings of the Church. Seems like a simple case. Yet a protest raged all summer against the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, even though it does not [...]

AP ALSO RIPS PHILLY ARCHDIOCESE

It wasn't just the Philadelphia Inquirer that went into high gear about the lesbian school teacher who was fired from an independent Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia: the Associated Press (AP) flipped out as well. On August 9, AP reporter Maryclaire Dale misrepresented what Pope Francis said about gays, and then accused Philadelphia Archbishop [...]
