WAS THIS A MIRACLE ?

UPDATED William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNews GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (CNBNews)--I underwent a medical procedure at Cooper University Hospital in Camden City in early January. Wheeled into the operating room I was administered sedation, and the next thing I remember, I was waking up in the recovery room. Once the sedation wore off, I was released. While waiting in the hallway for someone to push my wheelchair to valet parking downstairs, my wife Connie handed me my wedding ring. She had been holding it since jewelry was prohibited in the room during the surgery. As she hands me the ring,... Read more →

Jewish Federation Calls on Haverford College Officials to Condemn Todays Demonstration

“The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia calls on Haverford College officials to condemn today’s student-organized campus event entitled “COVID in Times of Genocide: How Israel uses COVID as a Tool for Settler Colonialism in Palestine.” The event’s title dangerously and inaccurately implies that Israel spread coronavirus to advance its global control, repackaging a centuries-old antisemitic trope that Jews take advantage of global crises as a means for their own gain and advancement. In this case, the event’s narrative takes on a new form of the antisemitic blood libel trope, accusing Jews of committing ritual murder and perpetuating the harmful stereotype... Read more →

GUEST OPINION: The Lying Pro-Abortion Catholic Democrats

Bill Donohue CATHOLIC LEAGUE June 27, 2023 More than 30 congressional Democrats who call themselves Catholic issued a robust defense of abortion-on-demand on June 24 claiming their position is entirely in keeping with the teachings of the Catholic Church. They know this is not true. “The Statement of Principles,” led by Rep. Rosa DeLauro, was issued in response to the Supreme Court’s decision last year in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that overturned Roe v. Wade. The statement contains at least four egregious falsehoods. First, the Democrats claim that in the Dobbs decision “the Justices stripped women of their... Read more →

March 8, 2023 Catholic League president Bill Donohue addresses the priest-penitent privilege under scrutiny in Vermont: The Catholic League is used to doing battle with lawmakers who want to violate the seal of confession. Their intentions vary, but in each case the proximate cause of such legislation is the sexual abuse of minors.

Guest Opinion: Free Abortion Pills For Some In NYC

By Bill Donohue | Catholic League President New York City Mayor Eric Adams is basking in pride now that some pregnant women can terminate their pregnancy for free. “For too long, health and health care has [sic] been centered around men. If men had periods…they would get a paid vacation. And if men could get pregnant, we wouldn’t see Congress trying to pass laws restricting abortion.” image courses of Minnesota Citizens Concern for Life How does Mayor Adams know that men can’t have periods?

CNBNews GUEST OPINION: Reparations For LeBron Is A Slam Dunk

Bill Donohue | Catholic League President Max Fennell says white people owe him money. Why? Because he is black and blacks were enslaved a long time ago by white people. Has that hurt him? Apparently not. He is an affluent 35-year-old businessman, entrepreneur, and former professional triathlete. But he wants the money. He also wants land. Fennell testified last week before a California reparations task force. He said every black person in the state should get $350,000. He wants additional funding for businessmen like himself: black-owned businesses should receive grants of $250,000 and 15-20 acres of land. Here is what... Read more →

Bernie was a class act... ~Bill Donohue Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the death of Bernie McGuirk: The death of WABC radio host Bernie McGuirk comes as a shock, notwithstanding the fact his health condition was known to be perilous.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: HALLOWEEN “HAUNTED HOUSE” IS OFFENSIVE

Here is Bill Donohue’s response. September 29, 2022 Gary Gilliam The Bridge Eco Village [email protected] Dennis Miller Rotten Concepts [email protected] Dear Sirs: The idea of using a former Catholic school as the site for a Halloween “haunted house”—what is happening at the former Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg—seems bizarre, to...

Guest Opinion: Catholics Remember This...What Josh Shapiro Did To Priests Was Disgraceful

Bill Donohue | Catholic League President On the website of Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Josh Shapiro it boasts that when he was Attorney General of the state he "exposed the Catholic Church's decades-long cover up of child sexual abuse, identifying over 300 predator priests and thousands of victims and spurring investigation across the United States." CNBNewsnet graphic file This is a distorted account of Shapiro's shameful grand jury investigation of Catholic priests. (For more on this subject see my book, The Truth about Clergy Sexual Abuse.)

CNBNews Guest Opinion: Meet The New White Supremacists

By Catholic League president Bill Donohue Blacks need not fear right-wing white supremacists—there are too few of these crazies to matter—but they need to fear well-educated white liberals. They have become the real white supremacists. CNBNews Guest Opinion If we define white supremacists as white persons who believe in the inherent inferiority of blacks, members of the Klan come to mind. But white liberals should also come to mind. That is because they don't believe blacks have the ability to raise themselves up by themselves. White liberals have given up on equal opportunity. This explains why they are constantly dreaming... Read more →


Guest Opinion: Biden Privileges Gays Over Kids

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the way the Biden administration is treating different demographic groups: On August 4, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra declared monkeypox a national public health emergency. This decision was not based on medical conditions; rather, it was purely political. On August 10, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported there were 9,492 cases of monkeypox in the United States. On August 6, a news story on CDC data reported that "fewer than 1 in 10 (8%) needed hospitalization due to monkeypox." That means there were 759 hospitalizations. A study published July 21...

GUEST OPINION: Increase in Anti-Catholic Incidents

BILL DONAHUE I The Catholic League The recent flurry of anti-Catholic incidents at home and abroad is a disturbing reminder of how deeply entrenched this genre of bigotry is. The incidents are not in any way a coordinated attack, though some commonalities are evident, the most obvious being that they are all driven by left-wing players. It was reported in Canada last week that there has been a huge increase in anti-Catholic hate crimes: between 2020 and 2021, they shot up by 260 percent. Churches have been burned to the ground, stained-glass windows have been smashed and acts of desecration... Read more →


Guest Opinion: TBS is Pushing Samantha Bee to the Curb

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor TBS is pushing Samantha Bee to the curb, which is not a strange place for someone who has spent her entire professional life in the gutter. After seven seasons, “Full Frontal” will not return in the fall. Bee is one of the most filthy-mouthed entertainers in American history. She is also a relentless anti-Catholic bigot. In 2018, she showed how low she can go when she called Ivanka Trump the “c-word.” After being blasted by critics, which did not include the National Organization for Women or the Feminist Majority, she issued an apology. “I crossed...

News Of Catholic Massacre In Nigeria Is Tainted

June 6, 2022 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on media coverage of the Catholic massacre in Nigeria: Father Andrew Abayomi was finishing his celebration of Mass at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo state (Nigeria) on Pentecost Sunday when terrorists shot the congregation and threw explosives at the church building, killing dozens of people. This was only the latest in a series of killings carried out by radical Islamists against Christians in Nigeria, though the media are reluctant to discuss the identity of the terrorists.

Guest Opinion: Pelosi has been Begging for a Fight with Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the rift between Rep. Nancy Pelosi and her bishop: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has been told by her bishop, San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, not to present herself for Holy Communion, has been begging for a confrontation with him for many years. Now she has succeeded. Less than two years after Cordileone was installed as the new archbishop in 2012, Pelosi, who was House Minority Leader at the time, "took the lead," according to the San Francisco Chronicle, "in a high-profile lobbying effort to pressure San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone not to...

New Jersey Catholic Bishops Outraged with Gov. Murphy’s Proposal to Expand Abortions in NJ

Catholic Church in New Jersey Stands Ready to Help Moms and Mothers-to-Be in Need A joint statement from the New Jersey Catholic bishops on Governor Murphy’s proposal that all health insurers in New Jersey provide coverage for abortion services: The Catholic Bishops of New Jersey join to express our disappointment and outrage over Governor Murphy’s announcement regarding proposed legislation to expand access to abortion in New Jersey, an act that by its very nature terminates human life. If enacted, this legislation would mandate health insurance coverage for abortions, codify regulations that permit non-physicians to perform abortions; and create a public... 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 →

Statement: The KAIROS Company for Dr. James Dobson May 10, 2022 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR "Recently, the Left has become increasingly deranged over the potential of Roe v. Wade being overturned. From riotous mobs outside the homes of Supreme Court justices to pro-abortion activists defacing churches across the country in violation of federal law, to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) attempting to push through legislation codifying abortion on demand, the Left is showing their true colors.

GUEST OPINION:

Some Schools Are Abusing Children and Parents

Bill Donohue | CNBNewsnet Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on how child and parental rights are being violated by an educational association: Three weeks ago today, I sent a letter to Donna Orem, president of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), asking her to validate a story about the organization that was published by Breitbart, an internet media outlet; copies were sent to members of the board of trustees. She has not replied, thus I am going public with my concerns. NAIS is the national accreditation association for private schools across the country. In my letter I... Read more →

GUEST OPINION: Twitter Censors Free Speech Again

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on Twitter’s censorship of free speech: Every sane person in the country knows that we cannot switch our sex. Men cannot become women, and women cannot become men. This is not debatable—nature has settled the issue. To be more exact, we cannot change our chromosomal makeup. Not even those who work in Silicon Valley can do that. Gloucestercitynews.net graphic file Those who work at Twitter disagree. Worse, they will punish anyone who disagrees with them.

The Last of the Big New York City Parades

by Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the controversy over the Staten Island St. Patrick's Day Parade: Staten Island's St. Patrick's Day Parade is the last of the big New York City parades of this kind to remain true to its heritage. Unlike the other St. Patrick's Day Parades, which have turned the march into an inclusion event, the Staten Island contingent remains resolute in exclusively honoring St. Patrick. The last time the Catholic League marched in the most heralded of St. Patrick's Day Parades—the one up Fifth Avenue—was 2014. I pulled our group... Read more →


GUEST OPINION: CORPORATE ELITES ARE PLAYING BLACKS

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.

Goldman Sachs In June 2020, Goldman Sachs announced that it “has a message right now to the companies they invest in: drive diversity throughout the organization, or we may just drive away from your stock.” Good thing that principle...

GUEST OPINION: It is Now Chic to Hate Whitey

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.
