Catholic League On Chick-Fil-A: ‘White’ Gay Marriage Support Has ‘Fascistic Elements’

Post image for Catholic League On Chick-Fil-A: ‘White’ Gay Marriage Support Has ‘Fascistic Elements’

Catholic League President Bill Donohue today entered the Chick-Fil-A debate by attacking “white and well-educated” supporters of same-sex marriage who are, he says, exhibiting “madness laced with fascistic elements.” Donohue’s racist, class-warfare screed is merely par for the course for the Catholic League’s vitriolic leader, who regularly exhibits extreme views that should make the Pope very angry.

In “Pro-Marriage = Anti-Gay?,” Donohue also attacks the New York Times for an editorial calling Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy’s comments “offensive.”

In full, Donohue’s ugly screed:

Dan Cathy, president of Chick-fil-A, has said that we are “inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’” How this unremarkable statement, which never mentions homosexuals, can be labeled anti-gay is astounding. But according to the editorial board of the New York Times, it can be. After quoting Cathy, the Times says, “Antigay remarks like these are offensive.”

It won’t work. According to this logic, almost everyone who ever walked the face of the earth has been an anti-homosexual bigot. Such hyperbole relegates real gay bashing to the trash bin, something to be discarded with alacrity.

Nature, and Nature’s God, has ordained that marriage is the exclusive province of a man and a woman; they are the only two people capable of naturally creating a family. But now, all of a sudden, we are expected to believe that such a pedestrian view is wrongheaded. Worse, there is a growing segment of the population, overwhelmingly white and well-educated, who want to punish those who hold to the traditional view. This is madness laced with fascistic elements.

Apparently, to Bill Donohue, everything in the Bible is 100% accurate and to be followed verbatim, marriage is only intended for procreation of new life (so same-sex couples wanting to raise children — even their own biological children — need not apply), and, what’s “worse” is that “white and well-educated” people are supporting same-sex marriage. Apparently, African-Americans with, for example, a Ph.D. are OK, but whites with only a high school education can stray to the equality side, Hispanics with, perhaps, a GED, can flee, but Latinos with an M.D. are expected to heed Donohue’s words. Asians, American Indians, Indians, and every other race other than white who are not “well-educated,” well, if Bill Donohue loses your support, it’s not so bad. You are now on notice!

Wikipedia defines fascism thusly:

Fascists seek elevation of their nation based on commitment to an organic national community where its individuals are united together as one people in national identity by suprapersonal connections of ancestry and culture through a totalitarian state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through discipline, indoctrination, physical training, and eugenics.

Ironic, isn’t it? Because what Donohue just did, by creating a race and class war on same-sex marriage, taken to its logical conclusion, seems to me to meet that definition.

Bill Donohue recently gloated that a convicted pedophile priest enabler was convicted of “only” one felony, attacked NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn’s wedding, saying it’s not a “real” wedding because she is marrying her long-time partner, a woman, told Piers Morgan “I want the law to discriminate against all alternative lifestyles,” ear-mongered with suggestions that polygamy will be Obama’s next marriage “evolution” step, and opined on a self-assighned “thought experiment, concluding that if scientists found “the gay gene,” America’s expectant parents would opt to abort unborn gay babies.

Yes, all this from Bill Donohue, the self-appointed defender of Catholics. Catholics should start defending Catholicism against Bill Donohue.

Isn't it fascinating that the religious and extreme conservatives always love to label liberals as "Fascists"?

In the words of Inigo Montoya, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. "

I wrote this a couple of weeks ago.I will continue to post until Equality is reached.I'm a gay man,I see this as 2 different issues.1st there is Holy Matrimony and I believe it is just that "Holy".This is performed in a place of worship by a person of the couples faith.We have absolutely no right to tell a faith to change their beliefs to satisfy our beliefs.I would stand up and fight for churches right to determine what takes place within their place of worship.I also would defend a man of the faith to not provide a ceremony against his faith.2nd There is Marriage that comes with a License.A license that is a civil,legally binding contract issued in a civil court and is a civil matter.The Marriage License has nothing to do with Religion,Faith,God,or any Church.Out of the two,the 2nd one(Marriage License)is the one the Gay Community is interested in.I should not be denied to enter into a legally binding contract with my partner of 21yrs.It is a civil contract issued by a civil court,a persons belief system has nothing to do with it.

As far as I'm concerned, the churches can believe or say whatever they want. As soon as they start trying to force government to adopt religious principles then we have a problem.

"Keep your church out of my government, and I'll keep my gay out of your church."

Catholic League President Bill Donohue joined in an evil action with Timothy Dolan to trash a 16-year-old apparent victim of Church sex abuse on Dolan's blog. That speaks volumes about the integrity of those two Catholic Church leader/monsters. Donohue has been strangely silent about the invalid anti-gay Regnerus study since the publication of my TNCRM article:
The Catholic Church’s Complicity In NOM-Regnerus’s Anti-Gay Hate Speech http://tinyurl.com/cywma6u

I been following the Regnerus story as well,It shows the depth of their hate.These people are Intelligent people,its their belief system and the desire to push the validity of the church that is insane.The insanity is multiplied many times over when a mob mentality is achieved.Combine the insanity,with their unshakable irrational BELIEF,Throw in the mob,then you have a very volatile and dangerous situation.History has shown no good comes of this type of situation.

It's exactly why our forefathers who were being persecuted by religious fanatics and dictators fled to North America to set up "Religious Freedom." Unfortunately the sore losers of ultimate power are now over on this side of tthe pond trying their devious persecutions all over again and calling themselves "Followers of Christ"… which they're NOT. They are "Followers of themselves agenda." The War for Souls wage on nefariously I must say.

Bill Donohue disgusts me. As a victim of priest rape I find this man utterly despicable. How he hasn't been called on the carpet by any real leader of the Catholic Church is beyond me. Between Donohue and Dolan they show us victims the only thing they care about is protecting their precious church and pedophiles. I call Donohue and Dolan along with Leveda and even the Pope for who they are: Pedophile Pimps and Degenerates.

Why do you suppose the Pope is takin' a hike into retirement so fast? He doesn't want to experience the mierda (Spanish… look it up) when the fit hits the shan Obviously so true to his (burp) calling (fart)!
