It doesn't take much to get Bill Donohue, President of the Catholic League, pissed off. He is annoyed by gays, Hollywood Jews, and all those nasty young men who lure saintly, celibate priests down the road to perdition and then have the unmitigated audacity to complain about sexual molestation which, according to blowhard Bill, is all part of the gay agenda. But nothing gets his Irish up more that the "little preppy boys" in the executive suite of the Empire State Building who had the unmitigated audacity to refuse to light up the Empire State Building in honor of Mother Teresa's birthday. Fox provided a pulpit for Bill to preach about that outrage. But despite his Fox promoted petition and street theater outside Satan's headquarters, Ma Teresa didn't get her colors. It gets worse. Now, the same folks are refusing to light up their building for NY Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan. Donohue and Dolan's personal network, Fox News, share in the "outrage" as evidenced by alleged straight "news" anchor and divorced Catholic Megyn Kelly who provided some warm Catholic fellowship for Donahue's latest in a long litany of rants.
Official "fair & balanced" news anchor, Megyn Kelly began by shouting: "They turned it red to honor the anniversary of Communist in China" (isn't red baiting a bit old school?) As she yelled, the chyron set the official Fox message about the Fox enabled "outrage" with a clever color metaphor under a photo of the Empire State Building: "No Cardinal Red At Empire State Building Sparks Outrage." She continued, "The owners said no to honoring Cardinal Dolan and here they go again." She was on a roll. She shouted, "No to Mother Teresa, no to Cardinal Dolan; but yes to Japan after they beat us in women's soccer."
Donohue (who if dressed in a nun's habit would look just like my eighth grade teacher) understands that because it's a "private building, it's their call." But because, according to Bill, its "iconic status" confers "responsibility," "dissing" Catholics who all love Cardinal Dolan (who if dressed in a nun's habit would look just like my eighth grade teacher) is "bad public relations." He brayed that if Dolan were a mass murderer like Mao he would be honored. He accused the Empire State management of having "an agenda" that "we Catholics" don't like." After Kelly showed a photo of the owner, Anthony Malkin, Donohue attacked him personallywith comments about how Malkin was born "with a silver spoon in his mouth" and some of Bill's pals don't like him because of his "arrogance." (Pot, meet kettle?) He accused Malkin of lying about the building not lighting up for religious figures. He yelled about "their little bully lawyers" who tried to "intimidate him."
Kelly read a policy statement from EmpireState regarding what they will and won't light up for. Included in the approved list is gay marriage which Kelly described as "controversial." (She didn't note that it's now legal in NY). Donohue whined about their recognition of MLK who, according to Donohue, "was a religious figure." (Uh, Billy boy I think his Civil Rights leadership supersede his clergy status.) He whined about how they're going to light up the tower for St. Patrick.s Day. He whined about "sensitivity for all kinds of people" and cited, as examples, the reaction to Roland Martin's tweets and Pat Buchanan "because they don't like what he wrote in a book," Sasha Baron Cohen who want's "to make fun of Arabs" at the Oscars, and what can't be said about Jeremy Lin. Whilehe agrees with some of it, he then whined "there's no sensitivity to Catholics." He cited "Managa"(?), and Anthony Malkin. Kelly looked at him with rapt attention as he whined about how President Obama is being bad to Catholics and as such, "we Catholics are angry." Kelly metaphorically kissed Dolan's ring and his ample posterior with her comment about how Dolan has "done a lot of good for the NY area and it's not just for Catholics." She continued her Catholic cheerleading: "The Catholic Church has done a lot to help the poor, downtrodden and so on so it's not just about being Catholic. It's about honoring somebody who's done a lot of good for this community and beyond who could, they're saying, eventually end up being pope."
So we have yet another blatant promotion of a Catholic Cardinal and a lengthy personal attack on a person (Malkin) who, most likely, won't be offered an opportunity for rebuttal on a show that's officially part of Fox's "fair & balanced" programming. Our father Ailes, who art in Fox News...Give us this day, our daily agitprop and who cares about trespasses.

So the rest of my phone calls to him were "Bill you are in fact going to burn in hell for defending the Pedophile Pimps and Priests of the Unholy Roman Catholic Church to be gangraped by the demons of hell just like I suffer through with my nightmares.
So I got charged with harrassing Bill Donohue because of the phonecalls.
It was a privelage to hear this disgusting human being, sitting not ten feet from me say:
“If a 15 yr old is being messed with by a priest and he does NOT smack the priest, then that means he wanted what happened, he enjoyed what happened and he is a homosexual.
He states it is NOT a pedophile problem in the RCC, it is a homosexual problem, messing with semantics. He says if the majority of the victims are male, and the majority of the victimizers are male, and the majority of the victims are post-pubescent, that makes it a homosexual problem and not a pedophile problem.
For some reason, the local prosecutor, Dan Buteau did NOT want to prosecute me, but he went after ne big time. Even asked the court….Mr LaFerriere claims he is a priest rape victim but how do we know he is tellling the truth? He gave the case to the county attorney whom referred it back to him. I was found guilty of 3 counts of harrassment by the judge and he sentenced me to 6 months in jail and 2 yrs probation and to seek psychiatric counseling.
We have appealed it, but because I missed jury selection, the case was remanded back to the district court for imposition of sentencing. In otherwords, if the appeal and motions the lawyers are going to present this week do not work, then I either file for innefective counsel, or I go to jail for six months for standing up to Bill Donohue and his attacks against us priest and nun abuse survivors.
He gets to continue on though, slamming priest rape victims and saying nothing but lies about us. He loves to compare what we went through as a slap on the wrist by a nun when he acted out in class.
Well Mr Donohue is a low life, bigoted, scum. To put the blame for the rapes of tens of thousands of us, on our backs and not where they belong, on the backs of the priests whom raped us, amounts to blamming the victim and re-victimizing us.
MODERATOR’S NOTE: We do not know enough about this person’s case to allow him to use our blog to advocate action about it. So the paragraph asking people to contact a specific judge about this has been removed.
Note to Skank Megan,
he’s just a man. Nothing holy or special about him. He eats, drinks, shits, pees, farts, scratches his ass and sins just like you. Nothing special about that.
