Why be surprised?

He's just saying what the conservatives are too cowardly to come out and admit. Give him credit for the honesty.

Being Catholic is an alternative lifestyle in America, buddy.
 
2012-05-11 12:16:23 PM
So is Bill Donohue running for president or something? Why are we listening to this lunatic again?
 
2012-05-11 12:17:35 PM
Of course Bill Donohue would say that.

Because the 24 hr news cycle has an overabundance of soapboxes to fill.

I'm pretty sure Catholic Priest falls under the heading of "alternate lifestyle"

I want the law to discriminate against straight people who live together - I used to call it "shacking up," but now it's called cohabitation.

What the fark?

He's an old, angry, dumb bastard. Nothing to see here.

Oh, no, wait, he has the ear of a huge group of voters in this country. Something to see here.

I used to call Bill Donohue mentally deficient, now I call him a re-re. It's an evolution of language and Catholics do believe in evolution.


/Countdown before Bill claims he's being attacked for his views and then claims all Catholics are being attacked.

DONOHUE: Oh, it's very simple. It's absolutely very simple. I have a doctorate in sociology from NYU, and I know what the literature says. The literature is definitive. There is one gold standard, one gold standard for children. That is: there is no substitute for a marriage between a man and a woman.

But a supple youth will do in a pinch.
 
2012-05-11 12:26:43 PM
Oh, the divorced anti-Semite opens his mouth again?

Great.

Peter Pumpkinhead came to town
Spreading wisdom and cash around
Fed the starving and housed the poor
Showed the Vatican what gold's for


Fark the Catholic Church, and especially fark Bill Donohue. I hope he chokes on a priest's dick.

The problem with whooping cough is that the name makes it sounds kind of fun.

He called the "vagina manger" the single worst piece of hate speech ever aired on television, ever. When I read that, I laughed at loud, at my desk. I NEVER do that.

Because THIS EXISTS ALREADY, BILL.

kingoomieiii: Oh, no, wait, he has the ear of a huge group of voters in this country. Something to see here.


No he doesn't. He's been adopted by the Reactionary Protestant types to show everyone how inclusive of Batshiat-Crazy they are. Roman Catholic institutions don't pay any attention to him. He's divorced, even. He insults Jewish people. He does things that used to get Catholics excommunicated.

Not that I give a shiat about religious people, but the Catholic League isn't the Catholic Church. The Catholic League is Bill Donohue, nothing more.

James!: Not that I give a shiat about religious people, but the Catholic League isn't the Catholic Church. The Catholic League is Bill Donohue, nothing more.


Well, Bill Donohue, a mailing list, a fax machine, and nothing more.

It's very simple to get a doctorate from NYU, apparently.

He has a doctorate and he doesn't know that all of the studies show no difference between being raised by same or opposite sex couples? He should sue NYU for a refund of the cost of his degree.

What a dick.

The Catholic League claims some 300k members. There are nearly 70 million Catholics in the United States. That means that Bill Donohue represents less than .5% of all US Catholics.

I would not be at all shocked if that 300k claim was a farking lie.

Exactly, it's such a refreshing change when bigots stop hiding behind their religion.

What is it with this guy? Why the anger?

I don't know what 'God' these people are praying to.

I'm betting the place they think is heaven is really someplace else. And their god is really, something else.

I wish someone would pay me 300k a year to sit there and spout bullshiat.

what an asshole
 
2012-05-11 12:45:25 PM
Well, I want the law to come down hard on people who use their positions of trust to rape little kids, not to mention the organizations that shelter and protect them, but I guess we can't always have what we want.

There's a criminal trial going on in Philly right now. Keep an eye on that.

Catholic League is that the one that is run by one guy in an apartment in NY with a Fax Machine?

Is the Catholic League against a bunch of same sex people living together?
 
2012-05-11 12:48:32 PM
Fark you Bill, you stupid farking coont.

//still hate seeing shiat like this besmirching the good people who still go to Church

He sounds like a typical Christian to me.

Jesus supported traditional marriage so much that he never got married, and neither did any of his followers.

That's like saying I hope Michael Jordan scores a basket.

You would have to sell bits of your soul(or psyche if don't believe in souls) with each asinine post. Is that worth it to you?

So Bill Donohue is another one of those "Small Government" people seeking Big Government solutions.

People need to stop giving this dude press and acting like he matters.

Yank their tax-exempt status.
 
2012-05-11 12:56:33 PM
So he wants all the priests to be arrested?

No. The Catholic League has 200,000+ paid members at $20 a year, and assets of over $20 million. They also share office space with the archdiocese of New York City. Bill is well connected within the Catholic Church. Don't underestimate him.
 
2012-05-11 12:57:44 PM
Republican says he wants the law to discriminate? Color me shocked.

He was also a poor socialist carpenter, but the Prosperity Gospel still exists. You can't explain that.
