Actor Alec Baldwin got into a spat that almost turned violent when he reacted with a vengeance against a photographer on a New York City street. Out of nowhere, Baldwin blurted, “I know you got raped by a priest or something.”
There was absolutely no context in which it would make any sense for Baldwin to react this way. What it suggests is that we are dealing with a man whose animus against Catholicism is so deep that virtually anything can set him off. That he got married in a Catholic church the day after his blow up makes this story even more bizarre.
This is obviously not the first time Baldwin has gone off the rails. But it is the first time we know of where he libeled priests. This guy’s resume just gets sicker and sicker.
