PAVLOV’S CATHOLIC

From THE GOTHAMIST:

Here we go again.

The "Piss Christ" photograph by Andres Serrano that is going on view at a Midtown gallery tomorrow has really been bothering Catholic League president Bill Donohue.

He told Fox News last week, "It seems like we have a protected class for Muslims as well as some other segments of our population. But when it comes to Christians, it's an all-out war."

So now Donohue has created a video showing off his answer: An Obama bobblehead in a jar with feces.

Joe. My. God. noticed the video on YouTube and left a comment on the video's page, but then the Catholic League disabled comments. The comment was, "That's a pretty sweet office ya got there, Bill. How many old ladies are eating cat food this week so you could grab their Social Security checks?"

There are four things that really piss me off about this.

1. It is such a boringly predictable thing to do. It's like to shouting "same to you with knobs on," in the school playground.

2. He didn't use real shit. It's a fake just like its creator.

3. WTF has it got to do with poor Barack? I wouldn't be surprised if Donahue blames his gross, little old ladies eating cat food enabled, obesity on Obama as he seems to blame him for everything else.

4. You don't spell "faeces" f-e-c-e-s!!!!! And if you really insist on doing so then don't pronounce it "feecees" because you ain't spelling it that way.

  1. Not to quibble but over here it IS actually spelled f-e-c-e-s. It’s one of those color/colour, labor/labour, -ise/-ize things. That said, Donohue is still a big pile of excrement.

  2. Not to quibble, MP, but over here it is spelled f-e-c-e-s. It’s like colour/color, labour/labor, sympathise/sympathize, etc etc.
    That little correction made, Bill Donohue still remains a stinking pile of excrement.

  3. Don’t make me go all nerdy English spelling crazy on you!

    Of course there are variations in English spelling, this is not news. But what might be news to you is that in the word “feces,” the ‘e’ most certainly can represent its “long” sound. (i.e., the sound and letter name are the same), as it is an open syllable (one vowel at the end of a syllable typically represents its “long” sound). This is the same principle occurring in words such as begin, repeat, febrile, female.

  4. The best thing we could do with Donahue it ignore him. Like so many of the Roman Prelates he kowtows to, he hasn’t had an independent thought in years.

    And as for the spelling/pronounciation issue, the whole thing is easily resolved by using the word “shit.” Using latin or euphemisms just makes life more difficult.

  5. Am I the only one here who thinks “Piss Christ” is BEAUTIFUL? Jesus pissed, y’know. The Incarnation: God bless him!

    Feces, “faeces” * (really?!) or Just Plain Shit: I’d say Bill Donahue was full of it, but that’s not possible, because he’s SPEWING it.

    * “Faeces”: wasn’t that that a band Rod Stewart was in?

  6. Donohue’s book, Secular Sabotage, is a brilliant, eminently rational defense of Catholic teaching in an era when it’s being attacked from all sides.

    • Donohue is nothing. This is what he does to make himself noticed, and merely pretends – like all so-called traditionalist christians – to be a follower of Christ.

      He’s a silly little sod, and that’s it.
