GUEST OPINION: Madness In The Schools ...What Is Happening In The Classroom

Catholic League president Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor The new school year is off to a wild start. Perversion, anti-Americanism, and racism are being taught in some schools, and it's happening at all levels, from K-graduate school. Those pushing this sick agenda are imbued with hate: their animus is clearly directed at Western civilization, the very home to liberty and equality they have targeted for assault. In one Minnesota school district, a sex education class asks heterosexual students to engage in role playing, pretending they are homosexual; they are also asked to consider whether they should have sex with each...

Guest Opinion: Transgender Reports Are Startling

August 23, 2021 Bill Donahue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the content of transgender curricula in the schools and the dangers they present: Now that the new school year is upon us, it is important for parents to understand how the sexual engineers in education are trying to program students into accepting gender ideology.

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 →

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.

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.
