“YOUR AVERAGE CATHOLIC SCHOOLGIRL”?
Catalyst March Issue 1998
In one of the most brazenly anti-Catholic remarks to be voiced by a journalist that we’ve seen in some time, New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser wrote on January 24 that President Clinton’s denial that oral sex qualifies as sex is shared by “your average Catholic schoolgirl.”
William Donohue’s letter objecting to this article was printed in the Post, along with several other letters of protest (we are happy to note that league members like Peter Duffy of The Bronx also had their letters published). Donohue asked for an apology and felt uncharacteristically wimpish when he read Duffy’s demand that Peyser be canned.
