WaPo Allows Catholic League's Donohue To Pen Unhinged Rant

Posted: Updated:

Bill Donohue is the president of the Catholic League, an organization that hysterically goes on the warpath against any alleged slight or insult or criticism. Jon Meacham is the editor of Newsweek, an ostensibly responsible adult who, with Sally Quinn, edits a column called "On Faith" for the Washington Post, which purports to be "a conversation on religion and politics." Donohue joined that conversation today and basically started speaking in tongues. Forked, incoherent tongues.

Did you know that "secular saboteurs" want to "tear down the economic structure of capitalism and replace it with socialism, and eventually communism?" They do, and they will do so by killing Jesus, and letting the Marquis de Sade have his way with the corpse, or something. And all of this perversion will be made into a movie, by Roman Polanski:

There was a time when Hollywood made reverential movies about Christianity. But those days are long gone. Now they just insult. And when someone finally makes a film that makes Christians proud, he is run out of town. Were it not for Mel Gibson, there would have been no "Passion of the Christ." But for every Harvey Weinstein who likes to bash Catholics, there is always someone else waiting in the wings to do the same.

Yes, it was just terrible the way Mel Gibson was "run out of town" with the assload of millions of dollars he made from his movie, Plan 9 From Nazareth, which was about Jesus and which should have allowed Mel Gibson the right to drunkenly denigrate Jews and call people "sugartits," just like the Bible says.

Anyway, Donohue is pretty sure that his side will win the culture war, ban gayness, and finally, maybe, get a Christian elected president and/or Christmas recognized as an important holiday:

The culture war is up for grabs. The good news is that religious conservatives continue to breed like rabbits, while secular saboteurs have shut down: they're too busy walking their dogs, going to bathhouses and aborting their kids. Time, it seems, is on the side of the angels.

This more or less explains why Donohue's house smells vaguely of dog shit.
