Bill Donohue: Gays Can Still Get Hamburgers at Applebee's So How are They Being Persecuted? — VIDEO


Catholic League President and general blowhard Bill Donohue faced off against Chris Cuomo this morning about Arizona's anti-gay bill and measures like it that would discriminate against gays based on religious beliefs.

Spat Donohue:

“Where are the examples of gays being discriminated against? If they’re being discriminated against, how come they make more money than straight people on average?...Is somebody being denied at Applebee’s getting a hamburger? Where are these examples of gay people being persecuted?”

Replies Cuomo:

“That's the exact right question. But it's the reverse! Can you point out a business that was made a substantial burden religiously because of what they had to do vis-a-vis a gay person?”

Cuomo and Donohue then went on to tear into one another about marriage after Donohue said:

"The gold standard is a father and a mother creating a family. That's what was ordained by nature and nature's God. Have you noticed anatomically there's a goodness of fit between a man and a woman?"

  1. "there's a goodness of fit between a man and a woman?" lol, for some reason I'm imagining Peter Griffin saying that.

  2. Is there any chance that grammar and syntax might reappear in any of this? The "conversation" seems like a series of non sequiturs. Oi!

  11. "If they're (gays) so discriminated against, why do they make more money on average than straight people?" What was the Bill? The same charge was leveled against Jews before the Nazis took over in Germany. Jews were HATED because they were "different" and they allegedly had "more money." Religious extremists like Donohue are very, very dangerous. Donohue couldn't provide ANY examples of Christians being discriminated against in Arizona. NOT ONE EXAMPLE. So why should Christians be given SPECIAL rights to discriminate against gay people?

    Cuomo did a great job here. He really kept Donohue on course, and that's not an easy thing to do. Thank you Chris!!

  13. Bill Pedophile Protector Donohue says what now?

  14. If this guy ever had a actual thought in his head, it would die of loneliness. And I can tell for sure he's never had a BJ!

  15. Bill Donohue is obsessed with gays. He is a classic homophobe. He should change the name of his organization to the "Homophobe League". As a Catholic, I find him an embarrassing blowhard, almost a cartoon caricature of an intolerant, bigoted doofus.

  16. I dunno, I know plenty of bottoms who are experts in goodness of fit

  17. I can't even. He is the one - of all these religiously affiliated bigots - who I can't even listen to.

  18. Sigh. Why do they keep inviting these douchebags? We all know he's a bigoted idiot and won't change. Case closed. Why not try to enliven the discussion with folks who may have something interesting to say?

  19. I'm guessing Bill Donohue's "goodness of fit" requires quite a bit of support, bracing and maybe a few pillows.

  20. "Hey, a bun's a bun," explained Donohue*, "the only difference is the meat in between."

    It's always sodomy and food with these people.

    *in his mind.

  21. I doubt he's eating at Applebee's on that $400,000/year salary and benefits package the Catholic League gives him.
    It's easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven, Mr. Donohue.
    Remember who said that?
    It was the same guy who had nothing bad to say about gays.

  22. Since that dipshit is so obsessed with anatomy, I would love it if someone would mention to him about the prostate and where it's located.

  23. Finally, Cuomo pushes back against that bigot Donahue. I gotta believe the Donahue is surprised that he can't bloviate his talking points and get away with it.

    Great job for CNN and Cuomo.

  24. OMG this guy is just a bigoted idiot and that's the problem with religious fanatics. They have so much hatred in their hearts for anyone who is not of their faith. The Catholic and Christian faiths are dying a very quick death because of fools like Bill Donahue. And good riddance.

    I am a humanist at heart.

  25. Burn Jesus......he was too soft on gays !

    He dealt with the Pharisees, the Publicans, the Romans, the Saducee and the High Priests.
    But he kept silent on the gays !

    Off with his head !
