Oh, goody! BillDo has written a piece about this Saturday’s Reason Rally on the National Mall (are you coming? If you’re an atheist, agnostic, freethinker, none, or anywhere in that general ballpark, you should totally come). Shall we see what nuggets of wisdom he might share with us from the depths of his pious bowels?… Continue reading BillDo Opines on the Reason Rally
Looks like it’s time for another edition of Bill Donohue Is A Terrible Person. The UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights commented on the current Zika epidemic: UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said Friday, adding that laws and policies that restrict access to sexual and reproductive health… Continue reading BillDo Has A Totally Practical Solution to Zika
This past week, Bill Donohue took a break from complaining about perceived slights to his religion of choice, and posted something more inspirational, entitled The Power of Hope and Prayer. He tells of a family whose newborn son had a heart disease, but who was cured thanks to hope, prayer, and the best medical care… Continue reading Not Impressed By the “Power of Prayer”
Every Who down in Whoville liked Cosmos a lot… But the BillDo, who lived just north of who-cares, did NOT! The tireless defender of all things Catholic (unless it’s things like 99% of Catholics practicing birth control, or being okay with not stoning teh gays) has spoken out against Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s and Seth McFarlane’s… Continue reading “Cosmos” Misrepresents Why Man Was Set on Fire, Claims Inquisition Apologist
BillDo is butthurt over the existence of the art-house movie Paradise: Faith, about an ultra-religious woman who wants to not just love Jesus, but make love to him. It is not certain whether the filmmaker, Ulrich Seidl, who is Austrian, is related to another Austrian, Mr. Adolf Hitler, though he could be. Like Hitler, Seidl… Continue reading Ow
BillDo has been on a tear lately against surveys, seeing as how a few of them have been released lately showing that as it turns out, the Catholic rank and file are nowhere near as reactionary as the funny-hatted hierarchy, or as he would like. I suppose he could have just pointed out that the… Continue reading The Selectively-True Scotsman
Oh, BillDo! Will your histrionic antics never cease to amuse me? (Spoiler alert: no.) Last week, Lawrence O’Donnell opined on Louie Giglio withdrawing from participating in Obama’s inauguration because of an outcry over a homophobic sermon he delivered in the 90s (and, to my knowledge, has so far failed to apologize for). That, and the… Continue reading Is Christianity Against Das Kapital?
The latest twist in Bill Donohue’s Gordian panties is the fact that he was barred from a gallery in New York City that was exhibiting Andres Serrano’s Piss Christ: I then asked them if I could enter, and they said no, without explanation. At that point I turned to the crowd behind me explaining that… Continue reading Bill Donohue Bathing in Privilege
One item in the news today is a study in the Chronicle of Philanthropy, where the main take-home message for a lot of people is that religious conservatives are generous to the needy, and liberal atheists are miserly Scrooges. In fact, teh BillDo has a picture of Scrooge next to his summary: Liberals are the… Continue reading Religious People More Generous?
Not too long ago — I remember it as though it were yesterday — the BillDo competed in the olympic 200-word blithering competition (emphasis added): Dan Cathy, president of Chick-fil-A, has said that we are “inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you… Continue reading Being Anti-Gay Doesn’t Mean You’re Anti-Gay
