Cardinal Dolan speaks with Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, on his new book called Catholic Advantage: Why Health, Happiness, and Heaven Await the Faithful.
Recently, Catholic League president William A. Donohue, Ph.D. published a report on the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) deposition in Missouri. Here is an excerpt from Donohue’s report:
At the end of 2011, a Missouri judge ordered David Clohessy, the president of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), to be deposed regarding his role in cases of priestly sexual abuse. Clohessy fought the order vigorously, but lost. On January 2, 2012, he was deposed; the deposition was made public only recently
I recently came across two statements written by Catholic League president William A. Donohue, Ph.D.
In one statement, he writes about a recent survey that shows a steady growth of the Catholic Church. Here is an excerpt:

In another statement, Dr. Donohue comments on the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York State and how the new law is affecting our religious rights. Here is an excerpt:

I owe it to all of you — both the Catholic and wider community — to be very clear about the ridiculous and groundless gossip spread about me by a tort lawyer named Jeff Anderson.

Malarkey! The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has an excellent record of fiscal integrity and transparency. I worked hard at that, and my successor, Archbishop Listecki, continues to do so. (By the way, you might also…
It almost seems to be an unspoken rule that Christians, and Catholics in particular, are not supposed to respond to criticism, insults, and slights towards their faith with anything more than a smile. Certainly we shouldn’t actually say anything. For some reason, this is not expected of our other religious neighbors – Jews and Muslims – or of any other group, such as blacks or gays.

I came across this fine article written by William A. Donohue, Ph.D. of the Catholic League. Mr. Donohue responds to a CNN documentary on the Pope recently aired.
Here’s an excerpt:
“We learn from CNN host Gary Tuchman that “For decades, before he became pope, Joseph Ratzinger was a high-ranking Vatican official who, more than anyone else beside Pope John Paul, could have taken decisive action to stem the sexual abuse crisis.” Similarly, author David Gibson says the pope “always took the stalling tactic.”
