Shocking double standard!
William Donahue, the head of the Catholic League, is a sick bastard. He sees bigotry and oppression against Catholics everywhere. Every comedian's joke, every movie that questions religion, is as bad as the Nazis. He led the attacks against Dogma and the Golden Compass. He's the one that got two of Edward's campaign bloggers fired for using strong language to complain about anti-abortion Catholics. He's the one that said:
Who really cares what Hollywood thinks? All these hacks come out there. Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular. It's not a secret, okay? And I'm not afraid to say it. ... Hollywood likes anal sex.
And he's always been given a prominent position to talk on cable news. He's constantly a guest on Fox and MSNBC. On Phil Donahue's short lived show, the producers forced him onto the show despite Phil's protests.
But now he's complaining about the fact that another sick religious wacko has endorsed McCain - John Hagee. Donahue says that Hagee
has waged an unrelenting war against the Catholic Church. For example, he likes calling it "The Great Whore," an "apostate church," the "anti-Christ," and a "false cult system."
He's saying that McCain should denounce and reject Hagee the way Obama was forced to denounce and reject Farrakhan, and if anything he's got a stronger case for it since McCain actually sought out this guy's endorsement, unlike Obama.
Donohue, who typically receives massive media attention when he launches such campaigns against Democratic politicians and the entertainment industry, hasn't yet received that level of press interest.
I wonder if he's beginning to figure out that he was being used.
