Catholic League's Bill Donohue Wants Bill Maher Axed Because Dan Savage Pointed Out That Priests Rape Children

Savage_maher

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.

DonohueWrites Donohue:

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.

Tweets Savage:

"Funny thing about this... ...is that I was raised Catholic. And so was @billmaher. Also, too, we're in the right."


Dan Savage Goes Off on Catholic Priests, Alec Baldwin, and the Cheneys with Bill Maher: VIDEO

Dan Savage sat down with Bill Maher to talk about "buttloads" of gay stuff, including religious officials, like a priest, who testified in Hawaii that gay marriage will harm children.

Replies Savage:

 "He's confusing children who were raised by gay parents with children who were raped by Catholic priests."

Savage also lays in to Mary Cheney and Heather Poe:

"Mary does a pretty good approximation of evil, however...They're wealthy dykes who until ten minutes ago couldn't give a flying f--k about the rights of same-sex couples in the state where they live or any other state. $2500 check to Mitt Romney in 2012. Voted for Mitt Romney in 2012...Romney was a thousand times worse than Liz and Mary wrote that f--ker a check."

The conversation then moves to Alec Baldwin and his hair-trigger homophobia.

Bill Maher and Piers Morgan Blast Obama Over Obamacare Rollout: VIDEO

Morgan_maher

Obamacare supporters Bill Maher and Piers Morgan lamented the roll-out of Obamacare last night,  discussing a report that emerged yesterday about millions of Americans getting cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare. Maher also ripped Republicans for continuing to try to undo the law.

Says Maher: "I don't think Obama should have lied to people."

Added Morgan: "When I see the president of the United States repeatedly — including at the State of the Union — assuring the American people, look, you want to keep your doctor, you want to keep your plan, you will. And he said it again, and again, and again, now we know the senior members in his very administration knew all along, for three years, that probably at least 50% of all the people that applied, that would not apply to them, they would have to change their plan, that is a bare faced lie. And I speak as somebody that is supporting of Obamacare."

Dan Savage Plans To 'Keep Inseminating His Husband And Keep His Fingers Crossed' For A Baby: VIDEO

Savage

Dan Savage stopped by Real Time with Bill Maher yesterday to discuss a bevvy of issues that comprise what Maher called this year's big "surge for 'gay.'" Referencing his article, "I Can Die Now," Savage spoke about the very real financial penalties, vulnerabilities and persecutions that gay couples face on a daily basis. He explained that for fifteen years he lived in constant fear of the huge burden his husband and son would face should he die, leaving exorbitant inheritance taxes not unlike those incurred by Edie Windsor. It was only when the Supreme Court ruled section 3 of DOMA to be unconstitutional that Savage felt a massive weight lifted off his shoulders.

The conversation, which in typical Real Time fashion, covered a broad swath of issues, next touched on Savage's adoption of his now fifteen year old son. At the implication that he and his husband could not biologically have a baby without some outside help, Savage remarked, "I'm always telling people who say two men can't make a baby, anything is possible for God. I'm going to keep inseminating my husband and keep my fingers crossed."

Watch Savage shine and make sure to tune in around the 2:46 mark as he shares his plans for procreation while Grover Norquist glares disapprovingly in the distance AFTER THE JUMP...

Bill Maher: 'Marijuana is the New Gay Marriage' - VIDEO

Marijuana_maher

Bill Maher called marijuana legalization a civil rights issue and compared it to gay marriage in his show on Friday night, in a segment that called out Obama for hypocrisy on pot policies.

Said Maher:

And finally, New Rule: pot is the new gay marriage. And by that, I mean it's the next obvious civil rights issue that needs to fall.

Now, if I asked you, what has been the biggest change in American society over the past 20 years, what would you say? Instagram? Coconut water? Crocs? All important, but no. It's that a generation ago, the closest thing to gay marriage was Liza Minnelli and David Gest.

In 1988, only 10% of Americans approved of gay marriage. Today, that figure's almost 60%. So what happened? What made gay marriage so normal, so quickly? Now, sure, part of it was Dancing With the Stars. But mostly, it was because gays simply demanded it. They didn't care that gay marriage wasn't popular, they put it on the agenda, and they made it popular. The same way they made every woman in America want to wear giant bug-eyed sunglasses...

...Gay barriers fell when Americans realized gays were their neighbors, their friends, their family members, their co-workers. Certainly, that must also be true of potheads. We all know at least one.

In fact, I bet there is one pothead that you all know. Oh, not any more, but here he is back in high school with his stoner posse, the Choom Gang posing with a cake that I’m guessing didn’t last long. And it makes me curious why he “evolved” so much on gay marriage, but has actually escalated the war on pot. At the Correspondents’ dinner he joked, “I remember when Buzzfeed was something that I did in college around 2 AM,” which killed in the room, but perhaps not so funny to all the young lives ruined for doing the same thing he did back in Honolulu.
