Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, was on Larry King Live last night discussing the recent developments in the church’s child molestation scandals. After some discussion on abuse, Donohue tried to claim that the church didn’t have a molestation problem, but rather a “homosexual” problem because most of the abused boys were “post-pubescent.” See video below.
According to Donohue, “post-pubescent” is 12 or 13 years old. That’s still well outside any acceptable level of sexual encounter. I’m glad that Sinead O’Connor was there to call him out over the claim. How great is it to see her again, by the way?
It would have been nice if there was more time for the panel to respond to that ridiculous statement, but Donohue came off looking like a fool, regardless.
