Fail Quote of the Day: Donohue won’t mind his own business

Catholic League President Bill Donohue

From Bill Donohue, reacting to a segment on today’s episode of The View where the hosts criticized the excommunication of a Catholic hospital administrator who thought it would be better to allow the termination of an 11-week pregnancy than to allow her patient to suffer a certain death:

It is an ugly site [sight]: grown women sitting around bashing a religion that none belong to. Though at one time three did: Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and Elisabeth Hasselbeck are all ex-Catholics. They went bonkers today—the crosstalk makes them look downright delirious—ripping away about the Catholic Church because a nun was excommunicated for allowing an abortion at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix. What they didn't say was that the nun gave her formal consent to the killing of an innocent child. More important, since none of the panelists are Catholic, it is none of their business anyway.

So, wait – the hosts aren’t allowed to criticize something that pertains to a religion that they don’t (or no longer) belong to? I ask, is that rule only limited to TV hosts, and not angry little blowhards who spend much of their time attacking anything and everything that doesn’t quite sit well with them, from atheists to Muslims and anything in between?

The only thing worse than Donohue’s self-righteous idiocy is his blindness to the irony of his own attacks. As one might say: Bitch, please.
