I love revisionist history. It sometimes makes more sense than the words, the bullshit, set down on paper for centuries, not unlike the gospels.
I also love the Tudors. All human, western, history to the present day seems to turn on this turbulent, fascinating period in English history.
Us “Screaming Bill” fans had been waiting all weekend for Bill Donohue over at the Catholic League to concoct new standards for child pornography in his defense of all things Catholic, namely Bishop Finn on his child abuse indictment - we were sorely disappointed.
I for one was waiting for Bill Donahue to say something like - that six year old girl is a slut and forced Father Ratigan in the Kansas City Missouri diocese to take naked and partially naked pictures of her while sleeping.
Better yet I was waiting for the Catholic League to say that Lewis Carroll, the author of Alive in Wonderland, took nude and semi-nude pictures of little girls way back in that wholesome Victorian era. Carroll’s photos were considered art and not pedophila. How could we not give less consideration to Father Ratigan and his budding artistic muse?
After all, Bishop Finn and his cronies at the chancellery took six months to a year considering allegations against him.
But oh no! No defense of Bishop Finn Bill!
Just a jump on the bones of a female actress’s sarcastic remark about that darling little Nazi devil in the Vatican. Surely they were words, terms of endearment.
It takes intelligence Bill to understand and appreciate sarcasm.
Lighten up Bill. Get a sense of humor.
Researching the timeline of the Vatican Catholic League cover up of Bishop Finn’s crime / protection of Father Ratigan, I ran across this helpful article on the Catholic League web site defending the undeveloped social skills of boys aged 12 who enter junior seminaries and who are supposed to function as full human beings as bishops later on in life. Yeah right.
“…Recently Phyllis Zagano, a contributor to the National Catholic Reporter, wrote an unfair article attacking Bishop Robert Finn of Kansas City-St. Joseph. She compared the situations of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rep. Anthony Weiner and Dominique Strauss-Kahn with Finn’s failure to move quickly against a problem priest….”
Here it the referred to Phyllis Zagano article:
Thanks for the heads up Bill!
