PENNSYLVANIA GRAND JURY REPORT DEBUNKED

By |2018-11-29T13:42:30-05:00September 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 [...]

ATHEIST ACTIVISTS EMBRACE SEXUAL LIBERTINISM

By |2018-09-25T19:50:50-04:00September 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 [...]

BEE’S TV SHOW REELING

By |2018-09-25T19:50:50-04:00September 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, [...]

OLD ABUSE CASES SURFACE; CRITICS GO BONKERS

By |2018-09-25T19:50:50-04:00September 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 [...]

CHEAPENING ANTI-SEMITISM

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49-04:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

What is worse than anti-Semitism are bogus charges of it. That is what Philly.com did on August 8. This media outlet is an important source of news in the Philadelphia area, so what it prints must be taken seriously. It has twice embarrassed itself recently: first, by publishing an article by John Baer that makes not-so-veiled [...]

DELIRIOUS REACTIONS TO CHURCH ABUSE

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49-04:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

While some Catholics are spinning out of control over cases of sexual abuse committed by the dead and the laicized, MTV presented the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award to Jennifer Lopez on August 21. No one from the media, and certainly no finger-pointing Catholic, questioned why there is an award named after an accused child abuser. [...]

SCAPEGOATING CARDINAL WUERL

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49-04:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Bill Donohue It is one thing for the laity to be angry about recent revelations regarding former cardinal Theodore McCarrick, and the Pennsylvania grand jury report on molesting priests (which is riddled with lies, see pp.8-10), it is quite another to allow emotion, not reason, to guide one's perspective on these twin scandals. Yet that is [...]

ASSOCIATED PRESS CLAIMS NUNS ARE ABUSED

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49-04:00September 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 [...]

MOTHER TERESA’S ORDER UNDER FIRE

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49-04:00September 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 [...]

ARE THERE TOO MANY JEWS ON SUPREME COURT?

By |2018-09-25T19:50:49-04:00September 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 [...]
