|Bill Maher's of HBO definition of a "Catholic League"|
A fax machine and a megaphone -
(And an obscene $400,000 tax free, tax exempt generated salary)
All the cronies, Bill Donohue groupies, hangers on, guys, around the bar at Rosie O’Grady’s get another round or two or three compliments of Bill Donohue and the tax free, tax exempt generated entertainment expense account, rehearsing his next reshaping of Buggering History in America and tacking it onto good ole’ Pope Frank's coattails, the father of the party.
Sex is always a good subject for Catholic haters. Their goal—sex without consequences (kids and diseases)—is threatened when religious leaders counsel the virtue of restraint. Similarly, we have the lament of people like Mary Johnson, a former nun, who told the MSNBC audience how “marginalized” gay and lesbian Catholics are. Catholic-bashing lawyer Marci Hamilton chimed in, commenting about the “sex abuse scandal that has scandalized the church over the past decade.” Any high school fact checker knows better: the timeline of the homosexual scandal was the mid-60s to the mid-80s.
Washington Post opinion writer Eugene Robinson wants to know “what did the newly chosen Pope Francis do” about the right-wing dictatorship in Argentina’s “Dirty War”? We have an answer from Adolfo Perez Esquivel, the 1980 Nobel Peace Prize winner: he said the pope “was no accomplice of the dictatorship.” Indeed, he firmly concluded, “He can’t be accused of that.” Others have written books praising the pope for his yeoman efforts in undermining the junta.
