Bill Donohue: "Oh Yeah!? Well...Them Too!"
Whenever blogging topics run thin or motivation wanes, one can always peruse the Catholic websites for some material. I found the raving Bill Donohue "commenting" from his mom's basement about how horrible teachers are and that they diddle kids.
If priests were teachers, they would be afforded special protections under state law, insulated from changes in the statute of limitations, never be fired (which means they would be kept in ministry indefinitely), treated with kid gloves by the media, and generally be held unaccountable for misconduct.Aw, would you like some cheese with your WAAAAHHHHH?
Teachers who don't do their jobs (at best) or fuck kids (at worst) should be fired and punished to the extent deserving of their crimes. Oh, and so should priests. The difference here - I'm explaining for Bill, who seems unclear - is that teachers, while providing education, generally do not individually, and certainly not institutionally, claim to have the moral high ground or moral authority.
...don’t look for Jay Leno, Bill Maher, "The View" panelists or the New York Times to weigh in on this issue. It is obviously not the offense that gets them exercised, it's the status of the offender. And we know why.I certainly hope you know now, Bill.
