The offensive skit featured a [...]

Bill Donohue comments on "Family Guy's" ridicule of the Eucharist: "Family Guy" is a typically juvenile prime time cartoon show that airs on Fox.

Bill Donohue comments on Donald Trump's friendly attitude toward religion: None of the three biggest vote getters in the primaries—Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sanders—are known for their deeply rooted religious convictions.
