Bill Donohue to Rape Victims: “Bend Over Again. And LIKE it.”
According to Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, the world’s most pressing issue is the jillions of sexual abuse cases by Catholic priests. No, not the abuse itself — that’s no biggie.
The REAL problem is those sniveling victims who were assaulted by priests, and the huge settlements the Catholic Church has had to pay.
Donohue told the New York Times that the church “has been too quick to write a check” to these victims, and that the church should fight all of these cases “one by one.”
He also said Catholic bishops should “toughen up and go out and buy some good lawyers to get tough” in the fight against their victims.
Bill Donohue’s current mission is to go after the victims’ advocacy group Survivor Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP). Donohue’s lawyers — YOUR tax dollars at work — are demanding “more than two decades of e-mails that could include correspondence with victims, lawyers, whistle-blowers, witnesses, the police, prosecutors and journalists.”
These subpoenas are calculated to sabotage SNAP’s advocacy work, and possibly bankrupt the organization. Donohue describes SNAP as “a menace to the Catholic church.”
A reporter was hoping to get an interview with Bill Donohue, but several young boys had just been escorted into Donohue’s office a few minutes earlier, and Donohue was temporarily, uhh, unavailable for comment.
