Anti-Gay Catholic Blowhard Bill Donohue: Marriage is 'Not About Love': VIDEO

Donohue

Catholic League President Bill Donohue talks to Current TV's Jon Fugelsang about marriage equality:

"This idea of two men getting married is the most bizarre idea in human history...Christians have an obligation, particularly Catholics to follow natural law. The whole purpose of marriage is to have a family. It's not about making people happy. It's not about love."

After Donohue cites Leviticus, Fugelsang asks if he follows it: "What do you mean follow Leviticus? Do I sleep with a man? No I don't. I never have. I have no interest in doing so."

Also on the table: Bill Maher and the priest sex abuse scandal.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  3. Yes, we can name a society where two men married; Sparta and Thebes.

  10. It makes so much sense! If there's anything that's good for children, it's being raised by a couple that is unhappy and doesn't love each other.

  11. You're gonna piss off a lot of older or infertile couples or couples disinterested in having kids with that line of logic when you make their marriages illegal too, ya steaming pile of stupid.

  12. "Follow natural law"? WTF! I thought they followed "God's Law". What is it? Can't be both. They follow "natural law" when it's convenient and then switch to "God's law" when it suits them. This is all BS.

  13. So if I form a one-person hate group that does nothing but spout anti-Catholicism, will I get invited to appear on places like Current TV or do they simply provide a forum for anti-gay haters like Bill Donohue? 'cause I sure don't see Current TV or the other news networks regularly lining up to invite racists or anti-Semites, but somehow they're STILL providing airtime to people like Donohue. Maybe we should ask them why that is.

  15. Papists like Donohue and his Vatican City boss aka The Pope are so old school (as in Dark Ages' schooling). Hypocrites like him (and his "Catholic League" members of none) who pick-and-chose which Biblical passages to follow and which to ignore should be pilloried in the nearest town square.

  16. Ok. I'm not a Catholic. So....wha?

    He's also against non-Catholic marriages, so what exactly is the point?

  17. "The whole purpose of marriage is to have a family. It's not about making people happy. It's not about love"

    This is actually true, historically speaking. The idea of "romantic love" being the basis for a marriage is a fairly new one and is almost entirely restricted to Western culture. Everywhere else in the world today--and in the West until the last century or two--the idea that marriage should only take place and continue to exist if the two parties to it were "in love" is/was non-existent.

    And the idea should be discarded, because it has had a devastating effect on the sustainability of the family unit, which, in turn has had a devastating effect on the well-being of children.

    Of course, this idea of basing marriage on "romantic love" is part of a larger cultural phenomenon of placing one's own personal desires ahead of those of others and of society in general, including one's children--and emphasizing rights without responsibilities--and this is what bothers me most about the whole marriage debate.

    All one ever hears from our side is clamoring for "rights"--one never hears about responsibilities.....and it is the lack of responsibility on the part of parents and everyone else that is really eating away at the fabric of our society.

  18. then put your face to video, "RICK" , and be one of the folks from "our side" who clamors for responsibilities.

    or is this just another day where you complain that everyone else isn't doing what you're also not doing?

  19. I blame the Jews...Their crazy religion has caused damage for thousands of years. It was adopted and tweaked by both the Christians and the Muslims...If they had never given the world the Torah we wouldn't be dealing with this sh*t today! The Jews are to blame for this crazy religious b.s.

  20. Fugelsang got his ass kicked here. He let this nut get away with a ton of lies, although later he said he did it on purpose.
    I am getting so tired of the liberal elite rolling over time and again, when there are plenty of arguments that would shred the competition in three seconds or less.
    I think our leadership are hopelessly corrupt.

  21. Wilberforce - the thing is, even when you shred every pathetic non-argument that they dish out, they still choose to ignore it.

    using facts, logic, reason and empirical evidence are all but useless when dealing with people who cling to believes that can only exist with a willful denial of all of those things.

    and in the course of human rights, it's just very simple, as we've been saying for ages: against gay marriage? then don't have one.

    there's an irony in people like Donohue speaking out - wasn't JFK's Catholicism a big scary thing back in the day? oh NOOO! a catholic president!? what is he tries to Catholicize the country?!?!

    now we have these prigs all but demanding it.

    Donohue's livelihood depends on these spoutings of bigotry. better work grassroots-style: get to his "followers" - if at all possible. you cant' expect an anti-gay bigot to change face when their anti-gay bigotry is, let's be real, how they make a buck.

  22. @Rick

    As someone who grew up with parents in a loveless hate-filled marriage I can assure you divorce can be a better option for children than staying married. You really need to learn to remove your head from your ass before you speak. Actually just keep it in there so we can't hear you speak.

  23. Ordinary, everyday not really "Politically involved" heterosexuals hearing Donohue say that marriage is "not about love" just became a ton of LGBT allies.

  24. "Mr. Donohue, a divorced father of two grown children who lives in Mineola, on Long Island," (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/15/nyregion/15donohue.html)

    I have two thoughts about this: 1) Catholics aren't supposed to get divorced either; and 2) I would be divorced too if my husband believed that marriage wasn't about love.

  25. And who would know more about loveless marriages than catholicks.
