Quote# 87997

[Rabbi Waskow: "Would you also suggest I keep my long Jewish nose out of some Catholic priests’ rape of Catholic children and some Catholic bishops’ protection of those priests from the law, because I’m not a Catholic?"]

Since you are interested in the subject of rape, I hope you are following the unbelievable explosion of child rape in the Orthodox Jewish community and the intimidation—by family members—of victims. The pressure put on the D.A. to deep six these rapes is sickening. You need to do something about this epidemic right now. Suggestion: follow the reforms of the Catholic Church and you won’t have these problems.

Ed Koch, my friend, once said that Jews had better not make enemies of their Catholic friends since they have so few of them. Think about that the next time you feel compelled to attack my religion.

[Note: Rabbi Waskow is not Orthodox.]

yeah, you'd better watch yourself, Rabbi Waskow.

Hey Billy, since you are interested in the subject of rape, I hope you are following the unbelievable explosion of child rape in the Catholic Priest community and the intimidation—by bishops—of victims. Suggestion: reform the the Catholic Church and you won’t have these problems.

Follow the reforms of the Catholic church... as in, keep it under wraps until statute of limitations, by instituting a policy in a language that, in the case of Orthodox Jews, real people actually speak and hoping nobody translates it?

Oh and [citation needed].

Bill Donohue sticks both feet in his mouth yet again! Film at 11.

Nobody is attacking your religion. They are only attacking the abominable cover-up of child rape.

A plague upon both their child-molesting houses.

Suggestion: follow the reforms of the Catholic Church and you won’t have these problems.

So, they should move the rabbis around to different synagogues and quietly pay off plaintiffs in lawsuits, hoping the statute of limitations comes into effect quickly?

I've never heard of Rabbi Waskow before, but my respect for him has just increased 100%.

6/26/2012 6:58:41 AM

I don't care if the Rabbi is actually a convicted child molester and perjurer, he STILL has a point and the right to critisise your religion for being shit. Because you know what? It is, and to dismiss that because you don't like the messanger is shit. Also logical fallacy etc etc...

6/26/2012 7:05:25 AM


No you'll have other problems like priests who rape kids protected by the church.

Wow, you are in NO position to falsely try to connect Rabbi Waskow to rape. You actively defend rapists yourself, Donohue. You're practically an accessory to child molestation.

And the suggestion that the Orthodox Jews try to follow the Curch's reforms!? What reforms? No matter how you cut it, the Church still hides and protects the paedophiles and harasses the victims and investigators.

Bill Donohue is a big floating turd that refuses to get flushed down.
Fucking apologist for Catholic atrocities.

One IHOP (International House of Pedophiles) is more than enough.

Bill Donohue's "Catholic League" consists of Bill and a fax machine. Why does the media give this guy any legitimacy? I'd bet he doesn't represent all the Catholics in his house, let alone the country.

{Edit: I thought he was married; turns out he's divorced. I thought "God" didn't like that.]

6/26/2012 11:12:44 AM


I suggest you both steer clear of rape AND religion.

Catholics ... friends of Jews? WTF? I mean at an individual level, yes, but as an institution ... Oy.

@ dfmfundies:

He's divorced, too?! Oh, oh my >:D

One thing Billy: The Vatican has institutionalized subversion of the law and put it's significant financial and political weight against whistleblowers behind the backs of it's own flock where your example doesn't involve an organized body but rather a series of sick bastards using shame and standard issue misplaced guilt trips as pressure.

Both are reprehensible and in dire need of reckoning, but only one has an official policy handed out in a newsletter. It's not quite a clear comparison.

Where to even begin?

People like you are the reason why I don't consider myself a Catholic anymore, Bill, you fucking pedophilia and abuse enabler.

Donohue is a nutbar. A few months back The Daily Show made a joke about women defending their reproductive rights from religious conservatives and showed a photo of a naked woman covering her lady bits with a Jesus nativity figure. Donohue protested by sending copies of the image to adverisers' executives.
