Donohue the misogynist:
Tirade against Joan Osborne for daring to suggest that God might become human--which is, after all, at the center of Catholic belief.
Donohue the anti-Catholic:
Campaign against the televison show Nothing Sacred (See also this.)
Attacks on Kevin Smith's film Dogma.
Donohue the homophobic apologist for priests molesting children:
the crisis in the Catholic Church was "a homosexual scandal, not a pedophilia scandal. . . .It's homosexuals" who are responsible for the abuse.
Donohue the anti-Semite:
"Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular"
"The Bush administration has suffered a loss of will and... they have capitulated to the worst elements in our culture"
Donohue the racist:
"And then they wonder why so many people don't trust the Muslims when it comes to liberty, because they will abuse it. In this country, we prize freedom of religion. They abhor it."
Donohue the bully:
"there are people in Hollywood, not all of them, but there are some people who are nothing more than harlots" who "will do anything for the buck. . . . If you asked them to sodomize their own mother in a movie, they would do so, and they would do it with a smile on their face."
"Hollywood likes anal sex. They like to see the public square without nativity scenes. I like families. I like children. They like abortions." (?!?!?)
If you're a Catholic, and a feminist, it's time to write some letters to your newspaper, or to the NYT, or to the Edwards campaign, or to Donohue's own fucked-up organization, saying clearly that he does not speak for you.
