Guest Opinion: THERE ARE ONLY TWO SEXES

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the need to tell the truth about biology BILL DONOHUE | CNBNEWS CONTRIBUTOR There are only two sexes: male or female. I said this to the graduating class at Ave Maria Law School on May 14, and my comments were well received. The next day, Wyoming Sen. Cynthia Lummis spoke to the graduates at the University of Wyoming and she said the same thing. She was booed and later apologized for "disrespecting" people. Sen. Lummis should never have apologized. She told the truth. We will never beat those who deny the existence of... Read more →

Guest Opinion: A NEW SURVEY ON ABORTION

Bill Donahue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a new survey on abortion: Radio, TV, the internet, and newspapers are alive with stories saying that a majority of Americans do not want Roe v. Wade overturned. Those reports are totally misleading. While the actual text of the decision does not allow for all abortions, in practice it does: to perform a late-term abortion all the doctor has to do is invoke a "mental health" exception, and bingo—he can legally abort the baby. Guest Opinion Importantly, the American people have never been in favor of abortion on... Read more →


GUEST COMMENTARY: Schumer's Abortion Bill Guts Religious Liberty

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on Sen. Chuck Schumer's abortion bill: On May 11, Sen. Chuck Schumer will introduce the Women's Health Protection Act, the most radical pro-abortion bill ever written. It would effectively guarantee abortion-on-demand. It would also gut First Amendment protections for religious liberty by exempting the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). GUEST OPINION Schumer epitomizes the Democratic Party on abortion and religious liberty. Not too long ago, the Democratic Party was cautiously pro-abortion. Two days after becoming president in 1993, Bill Clinton said, "Our vision should be of an America where abortion... Read more →

13-Year-Old Logan Calls Radio Station About His Calf

CNBNews Note: This was sent to us by a friend. It is a short story first posted in 2007 about a boy name Logan, who lives on a ranch in Nebraska. Logan listens to Christian Radio station 89.3FM KSBJ which broadcasts from Houston, TX. The 13-year-old called the radio station distraught because he had to take down a calf . His words have wisdom beyond his years. What struck us was how mature he sounded for being so young. Also how different this youngster's life must be compared to the majority of 13 year olds who live in the state... Read more →

This week's news is that the dioceses wants to put $87.5 million into a trust fund for the survivors of sexual abuse.

He is Indeed Alive...

by Fr. Frank Doyle, O.S.A., Vicar Provincial Why do people return to grave sites after the death of a loved one? Why do they place memorial crosses or markers on the highway at the site of a tragic accident? Why do we have such places as memorial gardens and cemeteries? Memorial places record the fact that a person has walked this earth, has left a mark in other’s heart and is not forgotten. They visit these places to pray, to remember days and lives shared.

Guest Opinion: New York City Mayor Rips Off Taxpayers

Phil Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ misuse of public funds: New York City Mayor Eric Adams inherited a mess created by his predecessor, Bill de Blasio.

It is also witnessing a mass exodus of people to other parts of the country—Manhattan leads the nation. This is driven in large part because of the spike... Read more →

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on how large corporations are playing blacks: We chose to review the diversity statements and programs of ten large-scale corporations.

Guest Editorial: Biden’s Address at Prayer Breakfast a Failure

by Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor It's a good thing that Vice President Kamala Harris didn't speak first at the National Prayer Breakfast. She would have made President Biden look bad. CNBNews graphic files She gave a very good speech, ending with a prayer. He personalized his address, offering a mumbling account of his interactions with congressional colleagues, past and present. Instead of rehashing old war stories, and making silly comments on how "the world is changing," Biden could have taken the opportunity to address one of our most pressing social problems—the war on the police.

January 7, 2022 Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the latest cultural fashion: It has been chic for some time to say things about white people that if said about blacks would be branded racist. Now it is in vogue like never before. The irony is that the racist comments are being said by those who consider themselves to be anti-racist.

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Justifying Racism January 5, 2022 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the growing trend of racism against white people: A long-standing liberal tenet—that we should condemn all forms of prejudice and discrimination equally—came under attack in the 1960s when President Lyndon Johnson decided that equal opportunity was outdated: he said the new goal should be equal outcomes. Ironically, this new thinking, which has since become a staple of liberal thought, was announced at the very moment when equal opportunity was finally emerging, thanks to the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
