William (Bill) A. Donohue (born July 18, 1947) is the rabid, hate-filled president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights. His rhetoric lies somewhere between Pat Robertson and Fred Phelps on the insanity-and-homophobia scale.

Donohue opposed a bill which would have required clergy to report suspected child abuse. Instead, he wanted to see consensual sex between teenagers included as child abuse. Donohue claimed that there is no "paedophilia crisis" in the Roman Catholic Church, but that there are too many gay people in the priesthood.[1] He also has said: "Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity."[2]

Bill Donohue is divorced.[3] Presumably his direct line to God gave him a Get Out of Sin Free card where Matthew 19 is concerned.


[edit] Charlie Hebdo

In January, 2015, after an attack by Islamic extremists on the French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo resulted in the deaths of 12 people, Bill Donohue engaged in his usual amounts of insanity and blamed the attack on the victims' supposed "provocation" of Muslims.[4] In an article he published on the Catholic League's website, he engaged in character assassination of Charlie Hebdo's editors effectively justifying the attack that killed them. So while Donahue condemned the attack itself, he essentially said that the Hebdo employees had it coming.[5]
