Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on an anti-Catholic ad that is currently airing on TV in some markets:

There is a despicable anti-Catholic ad running on some TV networks. It is produced by Lacuna Ventures, LLC, a company with offices on Long Island and Westchester, New York. The website that features the ad is

The ad asks that victims of sexual abuse committed by a priest, or someone else in authority in the Catholic Church, contact the company so that a claim can be filed. It stresses that in New York, New Jersey and California that time is running out to do so.

If someone has been violated by a minister, rabbi, imam, school teacher, coach, psychologist, psychiatrist, athletic administrator, camp counselor, guidance counselor, Hollywood studio official, media employee, doctor, nurse, lawyer—or anyone else—he can take a walk. They are not interested. They are only interested in going after priests.

“If you are a victim of crime committed by an African American, and would like help in filing a claim against him, contact us now.”

Would any firm in the United States run such an ad? Would any media outlet accept it?
