Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on an e-mail sent to the Catholic League by Rev. Robert Ullman of the Elmhurst College Board of Trustees:
On May 2, the Catholic League issued a news release on the obscene anti-Catholic talk given by Dan Savage at Elmhurst College on April 29. On May 7, we received an e-mail from Rev. Robert Ullman (he is a member of the Board of Trustees at Elmhurst) that sounded as if he had gone off the rails. Without a shred of evidence, the United Church of Christ minister accused us of making a racist statement against the Elmhurst president, and then veered off in a wild way denouncing the Catholic Church. Not only is he obviously a very troubled man, he is also a disgrace both to Elmhurst College and to higher education, in general.
