HOMOPHOBE OF THE DAY

Yes, it’s been a while – we were all getting bored of the repetitive nature of the haters’ diatribes. But this bloke’s ideas are so vile, and cause so much damage to the gospel of Jesus Christ that I have resurrected the feature just for him.

From THE RAW STORY:

The anti-gay Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights is going on the attack against “those who are distorting the truth about priestly sexual abuse.” The group bought an expensive full-page ad in The New York Times Monday that places the blames for the church’s scandals on “homosexuality, not pedophilia.” And perhaps most shockingly, it also claimed that some children were active participants in the abuse.

“The refrain that child rape is a reality in the Church is twice wrong: let’s get it straight – they weren’t children and they weren’t raped,” self-appointed Catholic League president Bill Donohue wrote in the ad.

“We know from the John Jay study that most of the victims have been adolescents, and that the most common abuse has been inappropriate touching (inexcusable though this is, it is not rape),” he added, referencing a 2004 study by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, which was funded by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

“What accounts for the relentless attacks on the Church?” he asked in conclusion. “Let’s face it: if its teachings were pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage and pro-women clergy, the dogs would have been called off years ago.”

COMMENT: Actually, Satan’s little helper may be right on that last point. The evidence shows that, although there is some abuse in denominations that are “pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage and pro-women clergy,” it is nowhere near as prevalent as it is in the Roman Catholic denomination. So, yes, if Roman Catholic teachings were “pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage and pro-women clergy, the dogs would” never have gone sniffing round its vestries in the first place.

HOMOPHOBE OF THE DAY — 5 Comments

  1. There are no words. “Vile” doesn’t even come close to starting. Such abhorrent asshattery further alienates others from Gospel as religious harlots sell their tricks. That anyone could read the words of Christ, and then think that they are within the scope of those teachings while disparaging genuine victims and shirking responsibility defies explanation other than that evil is not just an abstraction.

    I am glad that judgment is not left up to me. This man is creating his own hell.

  2. Donohue’s statement is an insult to the good, faithful Catholics in my community who continue to work, as voices of the faithful within Catholicism, for justice for the victims.

  3. This man should go ahead and send his measurements to St. Peter to get prefitted for his millstone.

    word veification: uprevill (perhaps short for super evil)
