Oh NO Mr. Bill! - Catholic League Misses Blatant Anti-Catholicism

How can a man who claims that, "Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular"...  ever pass as the guardian of religious tolerance?  More to the point: how can a lazy mainstream media not call such a man on his intolerance and hypocrisy? - wondered Lawyer and Stem Cell Research activist Frank Cocozelli, about Catholic League head William Donohue. Soon after Cocozelli's musing, Donohue's public rampage over a life sized bittersweet chocolate sculpture of Jesus raised questions about the Catholic League's attendance to its basic organizational mission. Recently, sharply anti-Catholic statements and writings, from rising Christian right leader and CUFI founder Pastor John Hagee, have placed responsibility for the Holocaust heavily on the Roman Catholic Church, to no outcry from either Donohue or the Catholic League, and both also remained silent as GOP House Representative Tom Tancredo voiced public support for a conspiracy theory alleging a vast, shadowy Catholic plot to culturally dominate America.
