Bill Donohue Warns Jews
Catholic League blowhard Bill Donohue is in for a lot of well-deserved grief for his latest douchebaggery, which is blowing up on Buzzfeed.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue, a vocal conservative voice who recently warred with The Daily Show over a "vagina manger," has infuriated prominent Jewish leaders with a private email last week to Philadelphia Rabbi Arthur Waskow. Waskow, a progressive rabbi involved in the Jewish Renewal movement, had criticized the Vatican and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in a Huffington Post op-ed for "attacking the religious freedom of millions of American women and the religious freedom of American nuns" over contraception. Donohue responded with a note to Waskow that launched an email exchange that ended with a warning, forwarded to BuzzFeed by a source close to the rabbi, that "Jews had better not make enemies of their Catholic friends since they have so few of them." Donohue also includes a postscript saying, "I do not have a long nose."Buzzfeed has all the emails in full.
RELATED: As far as I know, Donohue has yet to publicly comment on the scandal regarding Cardinal Dolan's payoffs to pedophile priests. I've taunted to him to say something on Twitter several times, but he's been uncharacteristically silent.
