And some more on the defenders of pedophiles in the Catholic Church

This topic just does not go away. Here we have an interview with Bill Donohue, of the Catholic League (the league is not getting my link. Use Google if you must. The link to the interview leads to the blog that posted it. You can listen to it there).

Ok, so the victims according to Mr. Donohue are basically gold diggers (yes, he actually uses that label). And you should not count voyeurism as a form of sexual abuse? Nice way to blame the victims and defend the pedophiles. Oh, and emotional assault is a "slippery term" to this guy. What happened to the victims was "common punitive process" back in the day according to Donohue. To say this is disgusting is to be restrained. Now, if you can stomach it, you actually get to hear how one of the abuse victims confronts Donohue with the actual facts, which is the way to confront bullies like Donohue. Again, this is not easy to listen to, but it is necessary to shed light on this evil. Why? Because the church and its criminals need to be held accountable and brought to justice.

A hat tip to Pharyngula.
