Miller Apologizes, Catholics Still Pissed

donohuebill-1.jpg
There’s simply no pleasing Bill Donohue!

Donohue and his Catholic League raised a stink last month over Miller Beer’s sponsorship of the Folsom Street Fair, which used the last supper as its advertising inspiration. Despite Donohue’s protests, Miller refused to pull its sponsorship, but did ask the fair’s organizers to pull their logo from the offending poster.

This wasn’t enough for Donohue, who upped the activist ante by sending Miller lewd pictures. Why? Because apparently he thinks some naughty pictures would shame them into apologetics. And it worked! Miller apologized. But poor Donohue still isn’t happy. Someone get this man a beer!

Donohue claims didn’t address the real problem, which apparently wasn’t the poster at all:

The poster was the least offensive part of this Catholic-bashing forum. What was even more offensive was the sight of Christian symbols being sold at this Miller-sponsored fair as sex toys. The obscene and blasphemous names of these vulgar sex toys are so disgusting that no mainstream newspaper would print them.

The only thing Miller is worried about is its logo appearing on a poster for an event it could not possibly defend. Not until it pledges not to sponsor Catholic-bashing events will the Catholic League call off its boycott and its anti-Miller PR campaign. We’re like that proverbial fly who just won’t go away.

More like the proverbial shit spewer who can’t resist poking his God-fearing nose into other people’s business.

      I prefer Phil to Bill Donahue. But how are they going to keep the catholics from drinking?

      The Roman Church in the States is very different than it once governed itself. Prior to this time, the head prelate was the cardinal archbishop of Baltimore (all except Francis Keough were cardinals) because it was the first archdiocese in the USA. Today cardinals and archbishops and bishops are lopped democratically into the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, a supracanonical body.

      Now this blustery Irish Catholic mick from NYC is a rabid homophobe and has become the talking head of the National Catholic bishops since the paedophile scandals. This “Catholic League” has taken it upon itself to be the Inquisitional watchdog for the Catholic uberconservative hierarchy.

      This verbal blustery bully is the MSM go-to-talking head when there is a gay v Roman Catholic issue, and sometimes when he attributes an “anti-Catholic bias”- except that is, for his fundy allies, many of whom are virulent anti-Catholics who are successfully taking communicants from them.
      The liberal US Roman Catholic Church has been systematically been obliterated since 1978, through vows of silence, replacement of liberal bishops with uberconservatives, and EWTN which has tried to obliterate both the spirit and letter of Vatican II.

      I know many Roman Catholic priest and lay martyrs who remain loyal to a Church in its second Babylonian captivity.

      If anyone is curious as to where Donahue got the pics he sent to Miller, visit this site:

      http://www.zombietime.com/folsom_sf_2007_part_1

      The person who maintains this site claims to be pro gay and have “many” gay friends, yet his pics are always popular with anti-gay websites and organizations.

      As a clergyman and a gay man in a monogamous relationship for thirty one years, I have always said that I am in favour of human and equal rights for all who recognise that rights have responsibilities.

      I have all in common with both heterosexual and homosexual singles and couples who have a moral compass to their words and actions.

      As my brothers, two are both happily married for a similar length of time, as parents and grandparents, they share very little with heterosexuals engaged in sado-masochism, public displays of lewdness, masturbation and intercourse. Not all heterosexuals who drink Miller Beer are models of the straight community.

      What concerns me is the biased presentation of facts that excludes places, venues and gatherings where straights are engaged in such behaviours.

      Besides, when we teach moral principles to our son, we teach and will teach that hate is the greatest form of immorality. We will also teach that sex is a great gift, binding two persons more closely than otherwise possible, but that like all things, misuse of good should be avoided for the ultimate pain and anguish in life it usually brings.
