William Donohue: It’s not a secret, okay? And I’m not afraid to say it… I like children
William A. Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights is downright snitty about the Bush
Christmas Holiday Festivus Cards with a picture of Serrano’s Piss Christ on the cover. Okay, it actually has two dogs and a cat:
“This clearly demonstrates that the Bush administration has suffered a loss of will and that they have capitulated to the worst elements in our culture,” said William A. Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights.
At the Catholic League, Donohue had just announced a boycott of the Lands’ End catalogue when he received his White House holiday card. True, he said, the Bushes included a verse from Psalm 28, but Psalms are in the Old Testament and do not mention Jesus’ birth.
“They’d better address this, because they’re no better than the retailers who have lost the will to say ‘Merry Christmas,’ ” he said.
Donohue said that Wal-Mart, facing a threatened boycott, added a Christmas page to its Web site and fired a customer relations employee who wrote a letter linking Christmas to “Siberian shamanism.” He was not mollified by a letter from Lands’ End saying it “adopted the ‘holiday’ terminology as a way to comply with one of the basic freedoms granted to all Americans: freedom of religion.”
“Ninety-six percent of Americans celebrate Christmas,” Donohue said. “Spare me the diversity lecture.”
And the last thing we would expect from Donohue is a diversity lecture. We would expect his Christmas card to have this inside of it:
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, okay? 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.

The overwhelming majority of those abused are postpubescent malesâ€”they are not children. Breaking the seal of the confessional could not have saved any of them; nor will it protect anyone in the future.
NAMBLA needs to hire this guy.
