OLD ABUSE CASES SURFACE; CRITICS GO BONKERS

By |2018-09-25T19:50:50+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

This was a tough summer for the Catholic Church. Revelations of sexual misconduct involving Cardinal Theodore McCarrick (he is no longer a member of the College of Cardinals) kept surfacing, and then came the Pennsylvania grand jury report on clergy abuse. For our part, we never wavered, making our voice loudly heard in the media. All [...]

BEE’S TV SHOW REELING

By |2018-09-25T19:50:50+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

The Catholic League protest of Samantha Bee's TBS TV Show, "Full Frontal," is paying dividends: sponsors continue to flee. Her filthy show has long targeted Catholicism, but when she used a vulgar term to describe President Trump's daughter, she went beyond obscene. We decided to take aim at her advertisers. In the last issue of Catalyst, [...]

ATHEIST ACTIVISTS EMBRACE SEXUAL LIBERTINISM

By |2018-09-25T19:50:50+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, From The President's Desk|Tags: |

William A. Donohue At first glance, there doesn't appear to be a relationship between the views of atheist leaders and sexuality, but upon closer inspection, there clearly is. In so many cases, the hatred of religion that marks atheist activists is integral to their love of sexual libertinism. Indeed, the former abets the latter. The nation's [...]

PENNSYLVANIA GRAND JURY REPORT DEBUNKED

By |2018-11-29T13:42:30+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Essay|Tags: |

Bill Donohue Unlike most commentators and reporters, I have read most of the Pennsylvania grand jury report. The purpose of this statement is to debunk many of the myths, and indeed lies, that mar the report and/or interpretations of it. Myth: Over 300 priests were found guilty of preying on youngsters in Pennsylvania. Fact: No one [...]

AMERICANS DO NOT SUPPORT ROE v. WADE

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

As a social scientist who has analyzed and written about polling data for many years, Bill Donohue is always taken aback when he encounters dishonest surveys. The latest example is a survey done by Gallup on the subject of abortion; it follows a pattern established by the Pew Research Center on this subject. The survey results [...]

MORE SURVEY LIES ABOUT ABORTION

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released July 23 says that 71% of American voters believe that the 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade legalizing abortion should not be overturned. It follows a Gallup poll of July 12 that found that 64% say Roe should not be overturned. Both surveys are deceitful: the "yes/no" simplified choices that [...]

FOUR REASONS WHY KAVANAUGH IS A GREAT PICK

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

All four of President Trump's short list of Supreme Court nominees were splendid selections. Congratulations to his top choice, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. There are four reasons why the Catholic League believes he is a great pick. 1) Kavanaugh came down squarely on the side of Priests for Life in rejecting the Obama administration's claim that there [...]

ARE THERE TOO MANY JEWS ON SUPREME COURT?

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Are there too many Jews on the Supreme Court? Just raising the question is enough to raise eyebrows. In some circles it would be proof of bigotry. Count us among those who would detect at least a whiff of anti-Semitism. Why, then, are pundits questioning the Catholic representation on the Supreme Court, and getting away with [...]

MOTHER TERESA’S ORDER UNDER FIRE

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Over the summer, Mother Teresa's order, the Missionaries of Charity, came under fire for allegedly being involved in a baby-selling racket in Kolkata. There is little doubt that four babies were sold by a lay woman working with the nuns. But attempts to pin the blame on the nuns are specious. This story unfolded on June [...]

ASSOCIATED PRESS CLAIMS NUNS ARE ABUSED

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

They made it sound like a tidal wave. Radio news reports were all agog over angry nuns, inspired by the #MeToo movement, turning on abusive priests. As it turned out, there were just a few. The hysteria was the work of the Associated Press. It ran a story on nuns who have allegedly been abused by [...]
