Catholic League Prez Reads Sex Columns. And Responds to Them

donohue

A lady magazine editor was all “Blame the nuns for your shitty sex lives, ladies” and the Catholic League was all “That’s so religious-ist!” Sorry, we can’t resist mixing sex with Jesus.

Former Men’s Health Girl Next Door scribe Nicole Beland is now the deputy editor at Cosmopolitan, a magazine for women not yet nervous about hot flashes and night sweats. But before taking the post at Cosmo, she signed off in Men’s Health by answering a husband’s question about his wife’s repressed attitude toward sex with: “It’s not easy to undo damage caused by years of exposure to Catholic-school nuns or overly conservative parents. She may need therapy to accept that sex can be a wholesome and glorious thing . . . Every positive thing you say about sex will undo some of the negativity she’s been brainwashed to feel her whole life.”

Ouch.

So Catholic League president William Donohue — one of America’s best homophobes! — responded: “Imagine some poor soul asking about his sexually promiscuous wife. Imagine Beland answering, ‘It’s not easy to undo damage caused by years of exposure to Jewish-school teachers or overly liberal parents.’”

So Beland mouthed off the Page Six: “I can’t believe that after writing a sex and relationship advice column for eight years, that this is the first thing that Bill Donohue has taken issue with. Clearly he’s not a devoted reader.”

Well, it is sort of amusing to know Donohue is paying attention to sex writing. Knowing that, we’re immediately forwarding him to the cultural musings of MasonWyler.com.

      That is not a pic of William Donohue, it’s a picture of John Hagee, he of Isreael-loving, Armageddon-wishing fame. Come on Queerty, get your nutso, corpulent psychochristians in order!

      Ya know, it’s not like Hebrew schools have a codex of falsehoods they are required to teach kids about sexuality.

      I mean, they don’t actually teach you that Leviticus is supposed to make any sense….

      The pic looks like John Hagee, the bigoted, homophobic, you’re going to hell if you don’t believe it EXACTLY like I do, preacher from Texas. In San Antonio I think.

      I still haven’t figured out why Donohue is the only person who gets to be openly antisemitic and get away with it. Any thoughts?

      Oh good…I figured that was John Hagee and didn’t think he would be head of the Catholic League when he isn’t even Catholic. Does Queerty not have a picture of William Donohue?

      Also, Hagee is pretty virulently anti-Catholic, and has been criticized by Donohue. Unintentional irony?
