  1. Honestly – I read “blame the gays” and didn’t watch the clip. Last week I fell into a tedious trap of hamster wheel logic.Everyone knows hamsters run their damn wheel until you feed or distract them. This hamster happened to be a good Christian outraged because I wouldn’t accept his “definitive” answer complete with “carefully researched” links “proving” catholic abuse was a non issue because statistically gay teachers abused more children. ARGH!!!!

    • What gets me is the need they have of monitoring and being involved in every ones sex life, but they refuse to act to stop the sex abuse happening in their church. Hugs

    • Most of the video actually isn’t about the “blame the gays” thing, but this is a line of attack that some conservative Catholics are pushing — that the real problem here is an evil homosexual conspiracy to infiltrate and subvert the Church. Some of them even claim it’s a conspiracy instigated by Satan himself to make the Church look bad by means of all this molesting. It’s ridiculous, but when people set out to defend the Catholic Church in this situation, they don’t have a lot of options to work with.

      But most of the video is Donohue claiming the problem is exaggerated and trying to change the subject. And shouting. He’s really into shouting.

      • He thinks he is some sort of old time prophet and that he is some how single handed saving the church. I got to the point I hate even the sound of his voice. He seems to never feel the church is in the wrong, it is everyone else that is wrong. He seems to say that is OK for the church to do anything and everything simply because they are the church of his god. He is wrong, very wrong. Hugs

  2. It is only “Normal” christian parents that produce 5 to 10% Gays, that’s a FACT, that’s the truth about Christians. Gays can’t per se not Reproduce, so it is the Normal – Christian efffcted ,- that produce gays. If there are any doubts, study biology.
    Stupid christians should be proud that they don’t produce only inbreeding, but diversity!
    And it is also true, that Priests, Bishops and Cardinal abuse children – it is in the range of 5000 per country in Europe. Even amongst the liars in the Republican party they hide.
    And that liar Bill Donehue must just be a lucky fucker, to have no gay kids.
    By the way, what would he do, if he had??
    About the whole christianity and the whole Republicans consist of pure liars and fraud. Sorry to say that.
    And there are surely more Christian parents and Christian relatives and Christian friends that fuck kids than priests and Bishops and Cardianals: That is also for sure.
    Most probably: Bill donohue is not only a stupid liar, but a bigot too who knows that he lies – Republikan-like.

      • It is a sad attempt by them to divert attention from what they are doing and trying to put the blame on others. Hugs

    • Sadly child sexual abuse happens and it doesn’t need a religion or church to do it. Remember I was an abused child. However the problem with the religions is they have such control over the kids they abuse and the parents that are told not to report it. The church setting is a predators ideal setup because the whole organization is designed to protect the organization no matter what an member does. Hugs

  3. There’s a case to be made that Donohue really earns that half-million salary. It’s gotta be tough having to go out in public constantly and humiliate himself saying totally ridiculous things in defense of the indefensible.

    He doesn’t make much of a case here. He comes across like all those twenty-somethings on Tumblr who think that mere vehemence is persuasive. The interpolated clips from the Pennsylvania announcement and the various investigative reports on molestation refute him well enough.

    And the same pattern of sexual abuse and the Church hierarchy covering it up and moving priests around to protect them has been uncovered in the US, Chile, Australia, Ireland…..pretty much wherever the Catholic Church operates on a large scale. It’s been going on the same way for decades (and I’ve seen some anecdotal evidence of the same kind of thing hundreds of years ago). It’s obvious that the cover-ups are, and long have been, official policy endorsed from the very top. A call to “bankrupt” the Catholic Church seems far too timid. In a sane world, it would be declared a criminal organization in every country on Earth, its leaders arrested and put on trial for their roles in hiding and facilitating sexual predation, its assets seized to pay compensation to the victims, so that the whole institution permanently ceased to exist and its one billion or so “believers” would have to learn to get by and do their stuff without any more priests, churches, Vatican, etc. Unfortunately the world we live in is not yet that sane.

    • Well said, well said. Dan savage said “If kids got raped by clowns as often as they get raped by preachers it would be against the law to take your kids to the circus”. Hugs

      • So let’s make another approach on them: tell them, that it is insane, to hate ones own offsprings. god has made them their children and it would be unamerican to steal the glorious nation their offsprings. And if there is any sin invorlved in producing children, just beg for mercy and forgiveness. – and love all your children with empathy andd understanding.

        • Part of the problem is the do think the act of sex to produce their children is a sin. They are so convinced that the book of goat herder tales is more true than reality is, so you simply can not reach most of them Hugs
