LETTERMAN LIBELS POPE AND PRIESTS
Catalyst September Issue 2013
During his July 23 monologue, David Letterman mentioned Pope Francis’ appearance at World Youth Day in Brazil: “And I’m telling you if there’s anything the kids can’t get enough of, it’s a 76-year-old virgin. Come on! World Youth Day. Or as the Vatican calls it, salute to altar boys.”
Some people can’t be shamed. David Letterman is certainly high on that particular list. One might think that a man known for sexually harassing his staff and for serial adultery might be cautious about such statements. But he is not by any means cautious in that regard.
Letterman, who admits seeing a psychiatrist once a week, may want to discuss his latest outburst with his shrink. This guy has some deep issues to be addressed, sooner rather than later.
One more thing: His cheap shots did not go over well with his audience. Hopefully, Letterman and his Catholic-bashing writers will get the message.
