You didn't hear a peep from DWT during that whole brouhaha about Edwards and his bloggers and that neo-fascist Donohue fellow they role out whenever they want to accuse anyone whose isn't on the extreme right of anti-Catholic bigotry. (When it comes to the extreme right, you never hear much from Donohue or his propaganda shop. Although right-wing lunatic fringe congresswoman Michele Bachmann belongs to a viciously anti-Catholic cult which considers to Catholic Pope to be the anti-Christ as part of its basic doctrine, one never hears a word from Donohue about Bachmann's bigotry. I bet you don't wonder why that is, do you?)

But Donohue doesn't have to go sniffing around the backwoods of Minnesota to find right wing bigotry. He must have a mirror in his cell, no? Or down the hall? Oh, I forgot... he draws $300,000 a year from his own little cult set-up so he probably doesn't live in a cell-- and surely does have a mirror he can peer into if he wants to really appraise some hard core bigotry.

But we'll give him a little reminder anyway. For some reason ex-GOP congressloon/possible murderer Joe Scarborough insists on portraying Donohue as a legitimate spokesperson for mainstream Catholicism, even though he's just another extremist cult nutcase. These are all quotes from William Donohue of the fascist-oriented Catholic League made on Scarborough's MSNBC Republican propaganda platform:

"People don't trust the Muslims when it comes to liberty." (February 10, 2006)

"Name for me a book publishing company in this country, particularly in New York, which would allow you to publish a book which would tell the truth about the gay death style." (December 20, 2004)

"The gay community has yet to apologize to straight people for all the damage that they have done." (April 12, 2005)

"Dean Hamer came up with this idea of the gay gene. I remember when that conversation was going on. Gays were all of a sudden worrying if people would start aborting kids when they found out the DNA suggested the kid might be gay or God forbid, we'd run out of little gay kids, so all of a sudden, they became pro-life. (December 14, 2004)

"I'm saying if a Catholic votes for Kerry because they support him on abortion rights, that is to cooperate in evil." (December 20, 2004)

"We've already won. Who really cares what Hollywood thinks? All these hacks come out there. Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular. It's not a secret, OK? And I'm not afraid to say it. ...Hollywood likes anal sex. They like to see the public square without nativity scenes. I like families. I like children. They like abortions. I believe in traditional values and restraint. They believe in libertinism. We have nothing in common. But you know what? The culture war has been ongoing for a long time. Their side has lost." (December 20, 2004)

"Well, look, there are people in Hollywood, not all of them, but there are some people who are nothing more than harlots. They will do anything for the buck. They wouldn't care. If you asked them to sodomize their own mother in a movie, they would do so, and they would do it with a smile on their face." (February 10, 2006)

"Well, first they said it [The Passion of the Christ] was anti-Semitic. That didn't work. Then they said it was too violent. That didn't work. Then they said it was S & M. That didn't work. Then they said it was pornography. That didn't work. Now they're saying it's fascistic queer-bashing. That kind of language would ordinarily get somebody taken away in a straitjacket and-- put you in the asylum. I don't know what about-- the queer-bashing is all about. I'm pretty good about picking out who queers are and I didn't see any in the movie. I'm usually pretty good at that." (March 12, 2004)

"The fact of the matter is the media elite have an aversion to religion. Some of them even have a phobia and some of them are obviously anti-religion. ...They want Tom, Dick, and Harry to get married. They want 'under God' out of the pledge of allegiance. They don't want anybody to see The Passion of the Christ. It's all tied together." (February 24, 2004)

NICE Howie.
Over at Dump Michele Bachmann some of us have been working on a name for these "special far right christians".
We are definitely anti-Bachmann and many of us love what Christianity at least could be and are horrified by what the Bush Theocrats have done to the lofty goals and word Christian.
We are toying with terms like
"Evangelical Christianist" or
"Evangelical Kristian"
for the charming Mr. Donahue.

Perhaps you or your readers have a better cybername already? Thanks.

Here's one more for the hypocrisy connection. Michele Bachmann and Ted Haggard are both Alums of Oral Roberts University.

Ted seems to have dropped off Oral Roberts U's alumni website and Oral Roberts U seems to have dropped off Michele's Bachmann's bio...

Good points, Howie. A cursory check of the Catholic League's board of advisors should clue anyone in to their political agenda: Alan Keyes, Dinesh D'Souza, Linda Chavez, Brent Bozell, William Simon Jr., Kate O'Beirne. If this isn't a Rethuglican front outfit, I don't know what is.

I'm sorry, I could be confused, but does Mr. Donahue admit to having excellent gay-dar in one of those quotes?

"Admit" to having excellent gaydar, Elusive? He positively brags about it:

"I'm pretty good about picking out who queers are and I didn't see any in the movie. I'm usually pretty good at that."

Picking out queers in fact seems to be one of Mr. Donahue's favorite pastimes. He doesn't tell us what he does with them once he's picked them out, so I guess we'll have to imagine that for ourselves.
