Catholic League: Being Pro-Gay Is Marxist, Obama Should Be Sworn In Using ‘Das Kapital’

Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, moments ago issued a press release suggesting being pro-gay is akin to being Marxist, suggested that President Obama is a Marxist, stating, “Given Obama’s ideology, perhaps it would make more sense for him to swear on Das Kapital.” Donohue, who last year placed a bobble headed President Obama in a jar of faux-excrement (image, top),  appeared furious with MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell, who last night used the controversy surrounding Georgia Pastor Louie Giglio, who was selected (but then declined) to deliver the benediction at the President’s inauguration.

Watch: Bill Donohue Puts Barack Obama In A Jar Of Feces

O’Donnell challenged anti-gay passages in the Bible, and, rightly, stated that no human being on earth follows to the letter the supposed words of God. O’Donnell stated if anyone did, they’d have t spend their lives stoning people to death, using the Biblical condemnation of prostitutes and adulterers as an example.

Of course, rather than be reasonable, admitting O’Donnell was speaking factually, Bill Donohue, himself virulently anti-gay, went into Christian warrior mode.

“If anyone doubts that Lawrence O’Donnell hates Christianity, then he should go to the website of The Daily Caller and watch him in action. A transcript of his diatribe does not do justice to what possesses him—you have to see him strut his stuff to get a sense of his true pathology,” Donohue writes:

O’Donnell starts his rant by focusing on Atlanta Pastor Louie Giglio; the evangelical minister bowed to pressure from homosexual activists by agreeing not to give the benediction at President Obama’s inaugural. Pastor Giglio’s crime? He’s a Christian. Practicing Christians, along with observant Jews, Mormons, Muslims and millions of others, accept the biblical teachings on the sinfulness of homosexuality. In the 1990s, Giglio addressed this subject, citing Christian teachings, and that was enough to set off the alarms in gay quarters.

Donohue neglects to mention that O’Donnell specifically and repeatedly stated that Giglio was repeating the words in the Bible verbatim in his anti-gay sermon from the 1990s. But why bother with facts?

READ: American Confidence In Organized Religion At Lowest Point Ever

“Over the past few decades, many homosexuals and theologians have tried to argue that the Bible’s passages condemning homosexuality should not be read as condemning homosexuality,” Donohue contines:

In their postmodern mind, they say that interpretation is wrong. O’Donnell, to his credit, knows these savants are delusional. While he readily admits that the Bible condemns homosexuality, his level of cognitive development does not allow him to discern the difference between behavior and status, which is why he falsely claims the Bible condemns “gay people.”

The problem for O’Donnell is not Giglio, it’s the Bible. He says the practice of presidents putting their hand on the Bible is “one of our most absurdist [sic] traditions.” Furthermore, he says that because Obama embraces the gay agenda, he should not swear on the Bible. The point is not without merit. Given Obama’s ideology, perhaps it would make more sense for him to swear on Das Kapital.

It’s interesting that Donohue chose to use his anger to attack President Obama in the title of his rant, and not O’Donnell, or even MSNBC.

But why bother with facts?

We need clarity in public understanding of the criminal Catholic Church's motivations. Worldwide, the Church still has a business plan of stigmatizing gays and lesbians in society, in order to get enough of them to sign up for lifetimes of near slave labor as low-level priests and nuns. That is how the rotting, corrupted turds at the top of the Church hierarchy continue to live off the fat of the land. Without that cheap labor from priests and nuns, the "leaders" could not live as they do; and they do continue to 1) encourage over-reproduction; and 2) stigmatize gays and lesbians, because those two things help them trap victims in lifetimes of near slave labor. Then we also need clarity of public understanding about what the Catholic Church did to homosexuals before and during the era of the Holocaust. There were as many gay victims of the Holocaust as there were, because of the Church's involvement in demonizing them and getting them deported to concentration camps. All over Europe, you can find memorials to the gay victims — but the Catholic Church has never acknowledged its role in getting those gay victims sent to their deaths. We must better organize, to get the rest of society to demand along with us, that the Church acknowledge its role in getting gay Holocaust victims murdered. At the link below is a video of Adolf Hitler making various speeches, swearing that Jews will be exterminated. In the final segment, Hitler says that God will help to exterminate the Jews. Listen to that portion, however many times it takes for you to understand Vatican complicity in the Holocaust. Adolf Hitler was baptized as a Catholic. The Vatican signed “The Reichskonkordat,” a political treaty with Hitler. Part of the Church’s treaty with Hitler reads: “In order to foster good relations between the Holy See and the German Reich, an apostolic nuncio will reside in the capital of the German Reich and an ambassador of the German Reich at the Holy See. “ When Hitler annexed Austria, he visited his mother’s grave in a Catholic cemetery and Catholic Church officials with swastika arm bands on their religious garb prayed with him. The Wehrmacht uniform belt buckle reads “Gott mit uns,” God is with us. The Vatican has excommunicated priests for suggesting that women should be ordained, but it has never excommunicated Hitler. The Vatican signed a political treaty with Hitler and participated with him in demonizing WWII-era homosexuals and getting them deported to concentration camps. Today, the Vatican continues to demonize gay people on the basis of scapegoating a minority, ignorance and hatred. Call your elected officials and tell them you are outraged by Catholic “leaders” demonizing gays and politicking against LGBT equality.

This US Nazi pseudo-Christian, like his intellectual and moral German Nazi forebears, also made outlandish claims about usually phantom Communists to whip up the brainwashed, useful-idiot masses into a frenzy of fear and hate. The Catholic Church and "good" Catholics like this guy were integral participants of the German Nazi machine in the Holocaust. They have to be stopped now.

Well there is a 'Modern Day GOEBBELS '(called that by a Federal Judge in Mass) being sued for Hate Crimes Against Humanity… eg author/promoter of KillTheGays bill in Uganda… who has not been invited to debate his facorite topic at the OXFORD UNION. See this piece and please join in the response if you don't think this truly is reasonable.

Modern Day GOEBBELS Invited to Debate Extermination of 'New Jews' by #OxfordUnion.'

Perhaps Maria Rioumine, president@oxford-union.org does not realize that Scott Lively is to the world’s LGBTI community what HITLER was to Jews in the early stages of the Nazi’s anti-Jewish scapegoating and rhetoric. Lively is on trial for conspiracy to persecute gays under The Alien Tort Act, in the U.S.A. BEIGN sued by Uganda’s LGBT community in Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) vs, Scott Lively, …
EVEN the presiding judge in Springfield MA understands: "hearing the judge present the situation of Lively’s actions and propaganda possibly causing similar harm as those of Goebbels in WWII, it is highly offensive to hear that a place as prestigious as Oxford Union would even consider inviting Scott Lively to participate.”

Is Donohue really as delusional as he makes himself to appear????

Oh, the Catholic League sounds like a bunch of winners (as much as Hezbollah is)

Isn't he pathetic! Blabbing on about morality, Jesus, and so forth, the mouthpiece for the Roman Church. He knows that the RCC has been a haven for pederastic priests and despite known recidivism simply moves them to another parish after a short rehab in the desert. His job is the keep the shekels coming at Mass so that the Poop can sip Vouvee Cliquot and admire the Vatican painting and sculture collection. If Assad were to convert tomorrow, confess his sins, he'd be assured God will save him. After all, no other country will.

Bill Donohue isn't the president of the Catholic League; he IS the Catholic League. He's NOT a representative of anything, apart from his own fear and hatred. I suggest ignoring him and his delusions.
