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

Donohue

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?"

Former NBA player Dennis Rodman exploded at CNN's Chris Cuomo when challenged about his trip to North Korea and asked why he wouldn't discuss human rights abuses and the detention of Kenneth Bae with dictator Kim Jong-Un. Rodman is on a trip with 11 American basketball players to entertain the North Korean despot for his birthday.

Screamed Rodman:

"Kenneth Bae did one thing ... If you understand what Kenneth Bae did. Do you understand what he did in this country? No, no, no, you tell me, you tell me. Why is he held captive here in this country, why? ... I would love to speak on this...You know, you've got 10 guys here, 10 guys here, they've left their families, they've left their damn families, to help this country, as in a sports venture. That's 10 guys, all these guys here, do anyone understand that? Christmas, New Year's ... I don't give a rat's ass what the hell you think. I'm saying to you, look at these guys here, look at them ... they dared to do one thing, they came here."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

It was not Rodman's first confrontation with reporters on the reasons for his trip. He was challenged by a group of reporters in the Beijing airport over the weekend and asked the same question Cuomo asked.

Said Rodman: "That's not my job...This game is for his birthday...That’s not the right thing to do. He’s my friend first. He’s my friend. I don’t give a s--t. I tell the world: he’s my f--king friend, I love him.”

CNN's Chris Cuomo and Catholic Blowhard Bill Donohue Have It Out Over Pope Francis, Gays: VIDEO

Donohue

Chris Cuomo, the host of CNN's New Day, blasted Catholic League President Bill Donohue's views on gays in a discussion about yesterday's Pope Francis interview, CNN reports:

C_cuomoCuomo said, “You have bashed on these issues for years and years. Most infamously, recently, saying that the Church had a homosexual problem, not a pedophile problem. I mean really incendiary, flagrant, divisive stuff…. You’re saying you won’t do that anymore?”

Donohue replied, “Oh no, I will always tell the truth –“

“Well, that wasn’t the truth,” Cuomo countered.

“If 81% of the victims are male and 100% of the victimizers are male, and if 78% of the victims are post-pubescent, the word in the English language is not pedophilia, it’s called homosexuality,” Donohue said.

When Donohue asked Cuomo if he thinks he “made up those figures,” Cuomo replied, “I think you’re parsing them, I think you’re cherry-picking them and I think that the most important part is your motivation. You just heard what the Pope said. Why wouldn’t you try to move past this parsing rhetoric and try to be what your church is supposed to be about?”
