I'm a little embarrassed to say that I actually learned the word "apoplectic" in order to describe Catholic League President Bill Donohue in a previous post. On the other hand, it describes him so perfectly that it may as well have been invented for that sole purpose. Here's a new fire-breathing tirade from our pal Bill in which he works himself to a red-faced, saliva-spewing conniption fit about the American Humanist Association's "Be Good For Goodness' Sake" advertising campaign during a Fox News interview.
Aside from the usual Pol Pot and Hitler silliness, Bill also goes off on a short side rant about Jeffrey Dahmer, which is especially interesting because Dahmer was born into a devoutly religious family and was re-baptized while in prison for his spree of cannibalistic murders. (His father Lionel is still an outspoken creationist.) Bill then proceeds to tell the representative a representative of the AHA that atheists essentially need to sit down and shut up even as he simultaneously claims that freedom of speech and freedom conscience are Christian ideals and that atheists are only becoming outspoken in U.S. today because (foaming, ranting...?) Christians like himself deign to allow us to do so.
And, of course, it wouldn't be Bill Donohue if he didn't piss and moan that atheists don't complain about the Muslims enough. Really, Bill? Freakin' really?
Honestly, this guy is going to give himself a stroke on TV one of these days.
