The anti-gay Catholic League is displeased with Jon Stewart after his segment denouncing Fox News for ignoring the War on Women, while pushing wars on Christmas, so the League is demanding an apology or they will “mobilize a boycott.”
Bill Donahue, the League’s President — who really is just a crazy man with his own gosh darned League — said in a press release:
The cover-up is revealing. This episode of “The Daily Show” was done to protest Fox’s alleged indifference to the “war on women,” and in doing so Stewart not only made a vulgar attack on Christians, he objectified women.
We are asking Stewart to apologize. If he does not, we will mobilize Protestants, Jews, Mormons and Muslims to join us in a boycott of his sponsors. Moreover, we will not stop with a boycott; there are other things that can be done to register our outrage. We are prepared to spend the money it takes to make this a nationwide issue, and we are prepared to stay the course. Tomorrow we will have something definitive to say, one way or the other.
How dare Jon Stewart disregard the War on Christmas – the one that never existed — but was afforded hyperbolic overkill on Fox News.
I don’t see this boycott working out in the League’s favor, after all, how many gay bashers tune into the Daily Show? I’m not sure, but Jon Stewart’s ratings are higher than all of Fox News.
According to the May Nielson ratings, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart beat the entire Fox News network in terms of total viewers. Stewart averaged 2.3 million viewers, while the Fox News prime time and day time line up averaged 1.85 million viewers.
Last week, Bill was outraged with….the Three Stooges, and it’s not because Moe is such a bitch.
Huffington Post reports:
The Catholic League’s President, Bill Donohue, has put out a statement condemning the movie for its disrespectful portrayal of Catholics, specifically nuns. Donohue claims that the movie is more evidence of the increasing hostility towards religion and Catholics in Hollywood.
So, that’s two statements he’s released against these evil Catholic hating entertainers. I guess he told them!
