Week 2 of Griffin-Gate

The god of YouTube is almighty:

I didn't realize there was a bonus joke in there as well.

Fox News asks the important questions of William Donohue: Why is it ok to bash Jesus?

Funniest part of the segment: listening to the blow hard Donohue swear right after both he and the host refuse to say the word "suck"; proving once and for all that the best indignation is mock indignation.

Funniest byline: Where's the Outrage? Celebs mock Christianity.

Here's another Fox clip where they honestly say that Ms. Griffin is wrong because Jesus really did have a lot to do with her winning the award.

The Catholic League is still trying its darnedest to make this thing a scandal:
“Perhaps the most defining response came from Ellen Johnson, president of American Atheists. In a news release, Johnson called for a boycott of the Emmy awards. Distraught that the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, a private organization, is choosing not to offend 85% of Americans by broadcasting an anti-Christian rant, Johnson wailed, ‘this is something I’d expect in a nation like Saudi Arabia or Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.’ Someone needs to give her a copy of the First Amendment—it protects our right to protest objectionable speech.

“Finally, while we are pleased to learn that Griffin’s celebrity stock has plummeted as a result of her scripted speech, we also know that there are some very sick people out there who love it every time some bigot takes a shot at Christianity. To wit: the phone calls and messages we’ve received are proof positive of how visceral the hatred is, much of it aimed directly at the Catholic League. No matter, at the end of the day, Griffin lost and we won.”

Kathy Griffin: For when the gospel just isn't good enough to put meat in the seats.

Finally, I'll call to your attention last week's SIOE protest in Belgium that was banned for fear of upsetting Islamic militants. Mr. Donohue and his fellow persons of faith truly know how to get what they want.
