Bill Donohue comments on a Comedy Central roast of actor Rob Lowe:
Sexual predators should not be making vulgar sex jokes, but that is exactly what Rob Lowe did last night. Speaking about English comedian Jimmy Carr, Lowe said the following: “Born to Irish Catholic parents, raised Catholic, Jimmy first knew he was funny at age 9 when he made his priest laugh so hard that cum shot out of his nose.”
In 1988, Lowe was videotaped having sex with a 16-year-old girl he picked up in a nightclub. It was the night before the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta, Georgia; he was there as a supporter of presidential candidate Michael Dukakis. Another videotape surfaced at the same time showing him and a friend having vaginal and oral sex with a young model in a hotel room in Paris. Ten years later, Lowe was back in the news regarding reports that he sexually harassed his nannies.
Given his history, Lowe is the last guy who should be throwing stones at priests. He is, after all, a rich target, ripe for exploiting.
