Dan Savage's recent appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher was the last straw for Catholic League blowhard Bill Donohue, who sent off a strongly-worded letter to the board of directors of Time Warner.
Maher commented on gay couples who adopt children, alleging that a Hawaiian bishop said these kids had a greater chance of committing suicide. Here is how Savage responded: “That’s total bulls***. He’s confusing children of gay parents with children who are raped by Catholic priests. Sorry, I am just done being lectured about children and their safety by Catholic-f***ing bishops, priests, cardinals.” Shortly thereafter, Savage again remarked about “kiddie-f***ing Catholic priests.”
We are sending to every member of Time Warner’s board of directors a copy of 54 anti-Catholic statements made by Bill Maher on TV [click here to read the report]. Friday’s show concluded the season. The time has come to close this show once and for all.
"Funny thing about this… …is that I was raised Catholic. And so was @billmaher. Also, too, we're in the right."
