But that may not be what we should—and it's not up to me to dictate that that's what other people should do, and it's an issue of fairness and justice... Read more →

CNBNews GUEST OPINION : Do White Christians Deserve Reparations?

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Catholic League president Bill Donohue questions the legitimacy of reparations: The idea that the ancestors of slaves are owed reparations is based on the notion that white people owe black people money today because dead white people mistreated dead black people long ago. On this score alone, this is a racist proposal, the victims of whom are white. Why should those who did not suffer the indignity of slavery be awarded financial compensation? And why should those who had nothing to do with it be forced to pony up? But if this crazed idea is to... Read more →

His latest contribution to hate speech is "Benedetta," a movie designed to stick it to... Read more →

Guest Opinion: Holy See Fighting LGBTQ Inspired Bill in Italy

June 28, 2021 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on an Italian bill that the Holy See is fighting: The Holy See is fighting an LGBTQ-inspired bill in Italy that would encroach on the free speech rights of the Catholic Church. The bill, which is the work of Alessandro Zen, a homosexual lawmaker, is being promoted by his followers as a necessary step to combat violence and hate speech. It is the latter issue that concerns the Holy See. Italy already has laws that condemn homophobia, so Zen's bill calls into question whether this proposed law is necessary. Catholics are...

Guest Opinion. 59 Democrats Lecture The Bishops

By Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contribut0r June 21, 2021 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a letter by Catholic Democrats directed at the bishops: Seems like everyone is lecturing the bishops these days. The latest to do so are 59 Democrats who identify as Catholics. Leading the charge is Rep. Rosa DeLauro. On June 18, she issued a "Statement of Principles" that chastises the bishops for addressing the issue of Catholic public figures who reject core Catholic moral teachings; 73% of the bishops voted to consider a document on the suitability of these self-identified Catholics to receive Holy Communion....

Guest Opinion: Hysteria Grips Pro-Abortion Activists

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on abortion-rights activists: Pro-abortion activists are in a state of hysteria. The reasons why are not hard to understand. A baby at 40 weeks... Many don’t realize that Colorado is one of only eight U.S. states that permit abortion right up until birth. In fact, the only other places on Earth where a baby’s life can be medically terminated after 22 weeks are China, North Korea, Vietnam and Canada! In communities and states across the country there has been an explosion in pro-life legislation. In fact, more than 500... Read more →


Guest Opinion: Dishonoring Martin Luther King's Legacy

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on how Rev. Martin Luther King’s work is being undermined: The legacy of Rev. Martin Luther King is being dishonored on a daily basis. Those who are trashing his noble record are not white supremacists; Martin Luther King rather, they are professionals who claim to be fighting racism. These people work primarily in education, law, and the media. Regrettably, they are as heavily populated in the for-profit sector of the economy as they are the non-profit sector. It was in King’s 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech where he... Read more →

GUEST OPINION: Beware The Anti-Racism Agenda

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on racism and what elites are saying about it: Gloucestercitynews.net graphic files The Catholic Church regards racism to be "intrinsically evil" and supports policies to check it. It must be noted, however, that today there is no shortage of educators, reporters, activists, and lawmakers who claim to oppose racism while harboring an agenda that sometimes promotes it. They do so mostly for ideological reasons, though those in the diversity and grievance industry also profit from it monetarily. Critical race theory, which is an inherently racist prescription—it judges people on the... Read more →

Guest Opinion: Biden Forgot to Mention the Words Religion or Religious

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue commented on President Biden’s speech Wednesday night: In his address to the Congress, President Biden spoke to many of his constituents, mostly in the way of promising an expansion of existing government programs or starting new ones. He did not address the concerns of religious Americans. Over the past year, the faithful have had their religious rights abridged, if not eviscerated, by Covid restrictions. There were several court battles, reaching to the U.S. Supreme Court. Biden said nothing about these First Amendment restrictions. Nor did he mention the words “religion”... Read more →


Churches Turn to Supreme Court as...

..Federal Courts Uphold COVID Worship Bans Religious liberties, public health deadlocked over COVID-19 bans Although the Bible commands singing to the Lord, public health officials say it’s an activity that spreads COVID-19, leaving churches in conflict with government limits on public gatherings. Several California pastors have filed lawsuits for what they see as intrusions on the free exercise of religion, but federal courts aren’t taking any chances. A federal appellate court even thwarted a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in the name of curbing coronavirus infections and hospitalizations.

Guest Opinion: Mass Killers Have Much In Common

by Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor The Catholic League March 26, 2021 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the recent mass killings: Gloucestercitynews.net files The media would have us believe that Christianity inspired the Atlanta killer, Robert Aaron Long, to go on his rampage. We are also told that Islam had nothing to do with inspiring the Boulder killer, Ahmed Al Aliwi Alissa, to go on his rampage. They are right about the latter but wrong about the former: In both cases, religion had nothing to do with their behavior. Long and Alissa are alike in one sense: both... Read more →


OP-ED: Sex Transitioning For Minors Is Child Abuse

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor March 29, 2021 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on children who want to change their sex: It is all the rage among elites in many quarters to sanction sex transitioning for minors. It is time to call this madness for what it is—child abuse. The damage that is being done is incalculable. Consider what this process involves. Puberty blockers are used to facilitate the sex transition process.

Guest Opinion: Ruling Class Is Race Obsessed

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor March 22, 2021 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the ruling class' obsession with race: We are getting close to the point where if a white person says he prefers vanilla ice cream to chocolate, he risks being labeled a racist. The ruling class, in particular, is obsessed with this issue, seeing racism lurking behind every decision that adversely affects people of color. We need to grow up. The first thing we need to do is get rid of the term "people of color." It is meaningless. Asians have little in common with African... Read more →

Guest Opinion:

The Politics Of Branding Biden A Catholic

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on Biden's Catholic standing: Everyone knew that Sen. Joe Lieberman was proudly Jewish, so there was no need to persuade the public of his religious status. Similarly, it is widely recognized that Sen. Mitt Romney is a practicing Mormon, therefore making moot attempts to prove he is. President Biden is different. Not a day goes by without some commentators, usually left-wing Catholics, trying to convince the public that he is a model Catholic. Gloucestercitynews.net files This is disingenuous.

GUEST OPINION: Obsessing Over Biden's Religion

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor March 2, 2021 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the intense focus on President Biden's religion: The obsession with President Biden's religion is everywhere apparent, especially among Democrats, liberal pundits, reporters and activists. They are working overtime to convince the public that he is a good Catholic. On Biden's first day in office, White House press secretary Jen Psaki addressed his religion at a press conference. "I will just take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic, and somebody who attends church regularly." "Devout Catholic." A lexis-nexis search... Read more →


Guest Opinion: Gov. Cumo Needs to Resign

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on accusations of sexual harassment against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo: Gov. Andrew Cuomo needs to step aside immediately pending an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment in the workplace. In doing so, he would simply be taking the same medicine he has prescribed for the Catholic Church. If a priest is accused of sexual misconduct, the Church’s zero tolerance policy insists he must step aside pending an investigation. Initially, this policy was directed at offenses committed against minors. However, in 2017 and 2019, Pope Francis said that zero... Read more →


Christians Beware of the Equality Act; Tell Your Congress Member to Vote No

Bill Donohue |CNBNews Contributor February 22, 2021 Catholic League president Bill Donohue explains why the Equality Act is flawed: According to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Equality Act is "about ending discrimination"; President Joe Biden agrees. That may be its intent, but its effect is to promote the most comprehensive assault on Christianity ever written into law. This explains why the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has been fighting this proposed law for years. Most recently it said the Equality Act "would discriminate against people of faith." The Catholic League and many other civil rights and religious organizations have... Read more →
