Add @CatholicLeague to list of fallacious #glaadcap respondents

by Jeremy Hooper

Another supposed fan of bearing true witness decides to instead bear false. This time, the Catholic League's Bill Donohue who is taking GLAAD's attempt to highlight commentators own words and spinning it into some sort of "blacklist":

Oh, you don't want silence Mr. Donohue? Okay, then let me do exactly what this GLAAD project is intended to do and bring more attention to the words on your CAP profile:

- Says AIDS is "self-inflicted": "The fact is that the artist who made the vile video died of self-inflicted wounds: he died of AIDS. The homosexual, David Wojnarowicz, hated the Catholic Church (had he lived by its teachings, he would not have self-destructed)."

-
Equated married equality with Apartheid: "[I]f people don’t realize what we’re up against here, they may be a minority but you know it was a minority of people in South Africa who took away the rights of Black people. You can be a well-organized minority in this country here such as those on the left, gay and straight alike, and have a tremendous amount of influence if you have this lust and appetite for power." (15:15-15:36)

-
Said: “The idea of two men marrying is so bizarre and so anti-marriage that it is a great tribute to the American people that they continue to respect the right of gays to participate in American life without harassment while simultaneously rejecting the extremist gay agenda.”

-
Warned: “We’re not going to allow gay people to adopt children, that’s against nature, it’s against nature’s God.” (1:24-1:28)
*MORE: Bill Donohue [GLAAD CAP]

If you stand by it, Mr. Donohue, then you should be sending GLAAD a thank you note! GLAAD only wants to give your words more light. What could be more tolerant than asking people to consider -- and I mean really consider -- what you, Bill Donohue, have chosen to put on the record?
