That media whore of the Catholic League must have gotten jealous of all the attention Sarah Palin has received, so he put out this entertaining defense of the laying on of hands by a Kenyan witchhunter on the GOP veep nom.
Witchcraft is a sad reality in many parts of Africa, resulting in scores of deaths in Kenya over the past two decades. Bishop Muthee’s blessing, then, was simply a reflection of his cultural understanding of evil. While others are not obliged to accept his interpretation, all can be expected to respect it. More than that-Muthee should be hailed for asking God to shield Palin from harmful forces, however they may be manifested. And for this he is mocked and Palin ridiculed?
“We know that many cultural elites have a hard time embracing religion, but is it too much to ask that they at least show some manners when discussing subjects which most Americans hold dear?
Kyle of Right Wing Watch said what I was thinking:
What exactly does Donohue mean by saying that “witchcraft is a sad reality in many parts of Africa” and that is has resulted “in scores of deaths in Kenya over the past two decades”? Is he saying that witches in Africa have actually killed people or is he merely referring to those situations where people kill others suspected of witchcraft?
Anyway, we look forward to Donohue finally coming out and decrying the incessant attacks the Right has been making on Barack Obama’s faith for the last several months.
