The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights has filed an application to march in the New York City Gay Pride Parade this year.

“I went to the managing director of the Heritage of Pride Parade and … said, listen, I want to march under my own banner, ‘Straight Is Great,’ in the 2014 Heritage of Pride Parade.

On-line atheist offers to convert … if you’re up to the task

From the writer’s blog (linked below):

Dear Catholic League,

This feedback form begins with the sentence:

Please give us any information regarding incidents of anti-Catholic bias.

Boy, do I have one for you: http://freethoughtblogs.com/wwjtd/2011/12/08/adopt-me-adopt-me/

I am a perfect target for your Adopt-an-Atheist program.  You want to convert the faithless?  You’d have to go pretty far to find someone like me.  I have an enormous bias against dumb-as-shit ideas, which pretty much makes me biased against Catholic ideas.  I think the cracker is just a cracker, a tasteless one at that, and I think anybody who thinks it becomes the blood of another human being is 1) insanely gullible and 2) pretty fucking sick for eating it.  I think anybody who believes a Canaanite Jew rose from the dead has a capacity for evaluating reality less than any five year-old who has managed to emancipate herself from belief in Santa Claus.  I also think anybody who gives money to an organization that enables and defends child rapists needs a serious recalibration of their moral compass (read: they’re a horrible human being).  I also think that, if the pantheon of hell truly exists, that the tallest pillars in it were constructed for people so aloof that they’ll contribute to an organization that shields pedophiles and then go out into the world and boast their moral superiority.

Clearly, I’m an excellent candidate for adoption.

You don’t have to contact any affiliates to adopt me, I’m happy to come right to you.  My email address is wwjtd21[at]gmail[dot]com.  Come adopt me.  Hell, I’ll even put your conversion attempts on a fairly well-read atheist blog for a bunch of other atheists to see.  Think of the potential for bringing people to Christ!  You’re welcome.

Great idea for a program.

Seen on the web: AIDS a “self-inflicted wound”

Catholic League president Bill Donohue called AIDS a “self-​inflicted wound” and claimed that if homosexuals followed the teachings of the Church they would not “self-​destruct.”

Editor’s note: The first two paragraphs of the linked article report the truth. The balance of the article consists of nothing more than pro-homosexual propaganda, in which truth is sorely lacking.

Dueling Christmas Billboards: Catholic League vs. American Atheists


Days after an atheist group posted a billboard mocking the Christmas holiday at the New Jersey approach to the Lincoln Tunnel, a Catholic organization has responded with its own message on the New York side.

The Catholic League has responded to an atheist billboard in North Bergen with one of their own in New York City by the Lincoln Tunnel.

“You know it’s real,” the newer billboard tells drivers passing the corner of Dyer Avenue and West 31st Street in Manhattan. “This season, celebrate Jesus.”

Abuse scandal rooted in homosexuality, not pedophilia, says Catholic League president

The Catholic League president additionally mentioned the psychologist Leslie Lothstein, who noted that in his work with abusive priests, “only a small minority were true pedophiles.”

Donohue defended his view of the scandal as a “homosexual crisis” by citing the data of Dr. Richard Fitzgibbons, a psychiatrist who has worked with abusive clergy. Dr. Fitzgibbons says that his own clinical practice confirms the opinion of “many psychologists and psychiatrists” who have found “no link between celibacy and pedophilia.”

Rather, the psychiatrist’s findings showed a “relationship between homosexuality and pedophilia.” “Every priest whom I treated who was involved with children sexually,” Fitzgibbons said, “had previously been involved in adult homosexual relationships.”

While taking pains to point out that “most gay priests are not molesters,” and that “being a homosexual” does not “make one a molester,” Donohue was adamant in stating that the Vatican was right to institute more rigorous procedures to screen out actively homosexual men from becoming priests.

Cover-up of the role of homosexuals in the Catholic priestly abuse scandal must end

GAY COVER-UP MUST END

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on two news stories released today by the Associated Press:

One of the AP stories on priestly sexual abuse admits that “The overwhelming majority of the victims were adolescents. That means very few guilty priests were pedophiles, a term mental health professionals reserve for those who target pre-pubescent children.” Fine. But then it says something which is positively remarkable: “Even though about 80 percent of victims were boys, the John Jay researchers and other experts on sex offenders say it does not mean the perpetrators were gay.” So what would they be? Heterosexual?

The AP article relied on the extraordinary remark by Margaret Smith, a professor who worked on the John Jay study. She said that while Donohue “quoted the study’s data correctly,” I nonetheless “drew an unwarranted conclusion.” What? That most of the molesters have been gay? Here is what she said: “The majority of the abusive acts were homosexual in nature. That participation in homosexual acts is not the same as sexual identity as a gay man.” So if two men sodomize each other, no one really knows if this qualifies as gay sex. Now I must admit that when I was studying for my doctorate in sociology at NYU, they never taught me such logic.

Both AP stories say the reason why there were so many male victims is because the priests did not have access to girls as altar servers. Nonsense. There have been girl altar servers in some U.S. dioceses since 1983, and almost everywhere since 1994. The statistics actually show that the more priests have access to girls, the less likely it is for girls to be abused.

Here’s the tally. As reported in 2004, between 1950 and 2002, 81 percent of the victims were male; in 2005, it stayed the same; in 2006, it dropped to 80 percent; in 2007, it climbed to 82 percent; in 2008, it jumped to 84 percent; and in 2009, it stayed at 84 percent.

In other words, even though priests have less access to males, homosexual priests are molesting them at a higher rate. It’s time to end the gay cover-up once and for all.
