Bill Donohue: I'll Make Guinness Suffer
"This is the start of an on-going protest that will send an unmistakable message to Guinness: declaring war on Catholics is risky business. The rollout of this campaign is visible here at our headquarters: the staff is busy assembling a list of Catholic organizations, Irish groups, pub owners, and all those persons and associations that have worked with us in the past, to boycott Guinness. There will be public statements, paid advertisements, and more. Of course, we will continue to blanket the media. While we will not refrain from addressing other issues, the Guinness boycott is our top priority. We have the time, the money, and the determination to conduct a full-court press. Stay tuned." - Catholic League blowhard Bill Donohue, via press release.
Also today, Donohue appeared on right wing radio to declare that he will apply to march in the NYC Pride parade behind a banner that reads "Straight Is Great." I've reached out to NYC Pride and will let you know if he follows through. I see no reason why they should refuse.
UPDATE: NYC Pride managing director Chris Frederick has confirmed Donohue's request to me via email. Frederick says that a statement will be issued shortly.
