Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a rash of anti-Christian assaults:
We have the coronavirus pandemic going on at the same time as rioting in the streets of urban America. Though churches had absolutely nothing to do with the killing of George Floyd, they have been targeted by thugs. Anti-Catholic remarks have also aired on TV.
St. John Episcopal Church, across the street from the White House, was set on fire, as was the Catholic Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis. Churches were vandalized near the University of Mississippi, and the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Denver was also trashed. St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City, and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Richmond, Virginia, had obscene words inscribed on its exterior and on its sidewalk, respectively. Windows were smashed in Dallas at St. Jude Chapel, and at the Cathedral of the Assumption in Louisville.
Bill Maher, whose bigotry against priests is pathological, told his sick fans a “joke” about a priest who put children in danger because he was seen walking “within 500 feet of a school.”
