Guest Opinion: Kamala Harris' Catholic Problem

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor August 12, 2020 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the problem Sen. Kamala Harris will have with Catholics: Once Catholic voters learn more about Kamala Harris' positions on an array of moral issues, Joe Biden's vice presidential pick will have a hard time winning them over.

Far better for students to keep moving forward getting credits online, especially at a community college where they are far cheaper, than putting their degrees farther away. The true quality of education largely lies... Read more →
