Encyclopedia > Catholic League (USA)

The Catholic League is an American civil rights group, with the mission of defending the civil and religious rights of Catholics in the United States based on the First Amendment. Founded in 1973 by Father Virgil C. Blum, it is headquartered in New York.

Although it is chiefly concerned with protecting civil rights, the Catholic League's conservitive stances on abortion, separation of church and state, and other issues often puts it at odds with other civil rights groups such as the ACLU.
