Go ahead, all you apologists, try and defend this sad and sorry record ... in the name of your jesus:

Five Philly priests barred for abuse, or, inappropriate conduct; Spain, maybe elsewhere, stolen babies; The Americas, maybe elsewhere, residential schools; Holland, maybe elsewhere, castrations; Ireland, maybe elsewhere, Magdalene laundries; the saga at the Mt. Cashel orphanage; every form of sexual abuse, just about everywhere; not to mention, the reports of murder, mayhem, money laundering, and mafia ties, constantly swirling around the Vatican. JP Morgan closes Vatican bank account -- on speculation that the account was being used for *less-than-immaculate financial deeds*. I mean, god, will it ever end?

Lest we forget ...
When an offender is found in a public school:
- the school gets the police involved
- the school cooperates completely with police
- the teacher is immediately suspended and is allowed no further contact with students
- if convicted, the offender is fired, and, blacklisted from teaching

When an offender is found in the catholic church:
- the victims are threatened with excommunication if they contact police
- the church refuses to involve, or, cooperate with police
- the offender is hidden by the church
- the offender is relocated to a new area with fresh, unsuspecting victims available
- the pope refuses to accept the resignation of people who try to resign because they feel guilty for their involvement in his cover-up

Sure, there are some things said about Catholicism that offend me in that they make me feel uncomfortable (my only reaction to Stewart's gag was laughter), but I don't have the right to be free from discomfort. Things like Piss Christ didn't really engage any emotion from me. And sure as anything, Catholics are not discriminated against in contemporary society any more than any other religious group.

I think Donohue really needs to take the advice of St Francis of Assisi and seek not so much to be understood, but to understand.

So Delta pulls their ads "following fallout from the host's reference to a controversial Nativity scene as a 'vagina manger,'" but in the middle of the story, a Delta spokesperson specifies that the ad change is not due to any opinions expressed by the show.

Kellogg's didn't tell anyone to shove it. They just said that they're not making any changes because "Consumers speak most loudly when they vote with their remote control and change the channel or turn off the TV if a program does not fit their personal criteria," which translates to "We're not changing anything because your group's advocacy campaign hasn't affected our bottom line at all."

So the takeaway here seems to be that Catholics are prone to hyperbole and premature butthurt, which is the least newsworthy part of the entire article.

How about this, Catholic League: YOU apologize first for your ignorance. YOU apologize for covering up the sex scandals. YOU apologize for trying to set back women's reproductive rights 50 farking years. YOU apologize for campaigning to deny equal rights to people in this country. And YOU apologize for a myriad of other things I can't think of at this moment because it's 7 in the farking morning and the second cup of coffee hasn't kicked in yet.

randomjsa: Right, so we have this straight...

When a Media Matters trumped up "boycott" calls up pretending to be customers to see if they can "outrage" a business in to dropping advertising with Limbaugh, and liberals loudly and proudly point out when this works, it's all fine...

But when the Catholic League does precisely the same thing, they're being pricks and bullies, and companies are "brave" for standing up to them.

Right, I've got it now.


I've never even heard of any such media matters campaign, but you don't seriously equate Jon Stewart's use of the nativity in a joke to Limbaugh calling a woman a slut and a prostitute because uses birth control?

farm3.staticflickr.com

Incidentally several of the major advertisers with Limbaugh have tried to come back, and he's pointedly told them to go F themselves. The Media Matters campaign has been so successful that Limbaugh has the freedom to tell advertisers who abandoned him that they are no longer welcome.

Huh? The campaign was so successful it gave him the freedom to tell them they're not welcome? That's certainly a glass half full approach I'll give you that.

It's strange to see a "grass roots" organization taking a stance on what is and is not offensive to Catholicism.

And that organization is headed by one angry jackass in Rome.

Incorrect. The Catholic Church has certainly evolved throughout the years. They used to stand for things like marching armies of children to the holy land, serial torture in the prosecution of heresy, and supporting the mass-extermination of the Jews. Nowadays, they're mostly an underground railroad for pedophiles.

I'm no apologist, but as someone who doesn't have a seething hatred for catholics i take issue with your statement of the Catholic Church "supporting the mass-extermination of the Jews."

Oh, that's right, I forgot. Pope John Paul II's apology in 2000 means it never happened.

well certainly an apology for "supporting" the holocaust certainly never happened. i think maybe you did forget.

My use of "supporting" contains a bit of hyperbole, and the Catholic church was certainly not unified in it's support of Hitler and the Third Reich, however, among the Catholic hierarchy, there was plenty of support (both tacit and otherwise) for Hitler's policies, and while JP II didn't come right out and say "sorry for helping Hitler kill the Jews", he certainly admitted Catholic complicity. I know this is tl;dr, but:

http://www.ewtn.com/library/CURIA/RRJSHOAH.HTM

Also, you may be interested to learn that Catholic support for the Nazis continued even after the end of the war, by way of church official's involvement in the organized effort to help Nazi war criminals escape to South America (similar to the current policy of moving child-molesting priests to new parishes, instead of helping the authorities prosecute them).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ratlines_(World_War_II)

Feel free to continue your denials. History knows the truth.


like i said i'm no catholic apologist, certainly there were catholics who supported hitler and the nazis. similarly there were americans who supported hitler and the nazis. it must feel wonderful to see everything in black and white.

The "Daily Show" segment featured Stewart mocking the Fox News Channel for not covering a so-called Republican "war on women."

I think he should apologize to his audience for that. Fox News does cover it and they have plenty of left leaning guests come in and give their views about it, they talk about it every day. They certainly talk about it more than the "war on Christmas", It may not seem that way to John because he is blinded by his liberalism. He's probably mad because they have both sides of the issue represented, if it's an opinion show the host likely goes for the side on the right, but the audience gets both sides and forms their own opinion. And on several of their opinion shows the host will often take the left side on some subjects, Geraldo for example.

It seems like almost every joke he tells is constructed it the same way, they come up with a funny punchline and then completely disregard the facts because they think it's funny and they know their audience doesn't know the difference or even care.

And it is funny until you start actually paying attention to the news, then the fact that there's a big lie in the middle takes the funny away. The same is true for Bill Maher and Carlin and Rock, any time a comedian starts talking about politics the pander to their audience, which is fine, but when they do it to the point of lying to their audience and holding them in ignorance then they should be ashamed.

Then the rest of the media refers to these comedians as "genius".

But I guess that's the way of the leaders of the left, when you watch their news channels and when they are on Fox News or Cspan, they know their followers respond to every fallacy thrown at them and then the followers come to the Fark politics tab and spew fallacy all over the thread. That's why terms like "hate" or "uneducated" comes off their fingers so often when they type a response to someone who disagrees with their opinion.

In a message to Viacom, Donohue wrote: "What Stewart did wasn't a joke. It was hate speech ... All we want is an apology.

Wait as long as all the kids that got caught in the Catholic rape factory had to to get an apology. See you in a century.

profplump: DrBenway: I was given to think that the Catholic church was all about "misguided jabs" and the "dickish." No? Have they recently altered their stance on that?

The Catholic church only supports dickery in the context of marriage. And they do not support "misguided jabs" under any circumstances -- all jabs must be carefully guided so that man's sacred seed is not wasted.


I just love that an all-knowing God made rule about wasting semen under the idiotic notion that men had a limited supply of sperm. You'd think the Creator would know how His creations worked.

dualplains: Though, I think I'll take it a step further and start flooding local catholic soup kitchens with Kellogg's products.


That's... that's beautiful.

I wish I'd won that half-bazillion-dollar lottery. I'd buy truckloads of frosted flakes and do the same thing. The kitchens smart enough (and, dare I say it, Christian enough) to recognize that compassion >>> soapboxes will be thrilled, hungry people will be fed, Kelloggs gets some monetary appreciation for not being retarded, and that League jackass claiming to represent people will have a stick shoved that much further up his arse.

Seeing as how I did not win that lottery, I'll be buying about one single box of frosted flakes instead. And then not donating it anywhere, since I'll be eating it for the next week.

See, here's what should happen (not gonna, but should): Jon Stewart goes on the air tonight and responds to Donohue's answer for an apology with a "fark you" of some kind. Perhaps starting out sounding sincere, and doing a "We're sorry we didn't make it bigger". Following the show, Viacom announces that, rather than make some sort of amends to Delta to return their advertising, they're instead ending all advertising contracts with Delta on all of its stations. In a show of solidarity, CBS does the same.

randomjsa: When a Media Matters trumped up "boycott" calls up pretending to be customers to see if they can "outrage" a business in to dropping advertising with Limbaugh, and liberals loudly and proudly point out when this works, it's all fine...


Limbaugh went after an individual without cause or justification. Stewart was making a joke. There's a wee bit of difference there.

Is this the religious right's response to Move On telling sponsors to drop Rush, because they are doing it pretty poorly.

Also, I DARE the Daily Show to make a skit like that about Muhammad or Xenu. Christians are easy pickings, they tend to turn the other cheek instead of legal bullying or sending in explosives.

...for the most part.

IHadMeAVision: My girl is from Trinidad


Is she hot? I bet she's hot.

thisispete: I'm Catholic. The Catholic League doesn't speak for me and I'm not very happy that someone would seek to hijack my faith for political purposes. Sure, there are some things said about Catholicism that offend me in that they make me feel uncomfortable (my only reaction to Stewart's gag was laughter), but I don't have the right to be free from discomfort. Things like Piss Christ didn't really engage any emotion from me. And sure as anything, Catholics are not discriminated against in contemporary society any more than any other religious group.

I think Donohue really needs to take the advice of St Francis of Assisi and seek not so much to be understood, but to understand.


I was raised Catholic. My recommendation would be to take the quality lessons you've learned, reject the nonsense and run far far away.

It's a sinkin' ship, dude and they'll do whatever they can to take you down with them.

God-is-a-Taco: I can't say I agree with the term "bullying" here when people of my political persuasion so openly celebrated sponsors being encouraged to leave Limbaugh (including me).
They're doing the same thing "we" did, however backwards and idiotic their stances are.


I was thinking about the advertiser boycott thing after that Rush fiasco and I came to realize it's a pretty stupid thing to do. In most cases the businesses don't care what the show is about, they simply look at the ratings. Their sponsorship shouldn't be considered support. There's also the cases of businesses supporting charities. This has also caused "outrage" for some pretty stupid things, e.g. the company donated to a charity that is associated with a group that supports gay rights so BOYCOTT! (or the opposite)

It's starting to get silly. I don't have the time to track what businesses advertise where and support which charities. So fark it. Unless something is so outrageous that it can't be ignored, I'm not going to bother with this crap in the future.

The Flexecutioner: more power to em for trying to use their consumer power for change, but that kind of publicity works both ways. i like that plenty of people are going to use this as a reason to buy something purely out of spite. personally, the Catholic League can go shove it. and im not going to buy some Frosted Flakes or granola bars because I dont like their religious inanery, but I'm glad others are willing to.


I usually get the cheaper generic version of cereals but I just pledged to buy Kellogg's for the rest of the summer.

I'm a man of my word.
