On August 10, 2004 the Beliefnet reported that, "Bill Donohue's two-for-two record in silencing two Democratic operatives has raised the profile of his New York office, founded in 1973 to monitor and combat anti-Catholic bigotry. It has also raised the ire of his critics who call him a mean-spirited grandstander motivated by partisan politics. Either way, Donohue has demonstrated outsized influence for an outfit with only 12 staffers and a $3 million budget. His 350,000 members represent just one-half of 1 percent of the country's 65 million Catholics."
