Below is the text of Bill Donohue’s letter to the mainline Protestant denomination leaders that was mailed today:
Enclosed is an obscene, anti-women, anti-Christian picture—that’s a nativity scene ornament in between the woman’s legs—that was flashed on the screen on the April 16 episode of Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show”; he referred to it as the “vagina manger.” He obviously crossed the line, and that is why we are contacting his sponsors, as well as religious leaders from every major faith community, about this offensive stunt. All we are asking for is an apology.
It would be of enormous help if you were to weigh in on this issue. Please write to Mr. Steve Albani, Senior VP Communications, Comedy Central, 345 Hudson St., New York, New York 10014. Thanks so much.
