Bill Donohue: 'Marriage Has Nothing To Do With Love'

I don't know how I can bring myself to write anything cogent about Catholic League President (of himself) Bill Donohue's cartoonishly predictable views on marriage in the marriage equality debate and the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church on sexual matters and covering up their own sex scandals after hearing John Fugelsang use the phrase "putting your penis in a kid's mouth". How can you follow that?

But bully for John Fugelsang for pointing out Bill Donohue's hypocrisy of holding up Leviticus for hating on the gays.

“The whole purpose of marriage is to have a family,” he said. “It’s not about making people happy. It’s not about love.”

Fugelsang repeatedly pressed Donohue to explain where Jesus preaches anything about “treating our gay friends like second-class citizens.” The host also pointed out that the Catholic leader is a hypocrite for demanding we follow a Leviticus passage that prohibits “lying with another man,” yet he doesn’t refrain from eating pork or from wearing shirts with mixed fibers.

“I think there’s a little bit of difference between what kind of shirt I buy and two guys having anal sex,” Donohue dismissed.
