A few days ago, Bill Donohue of the Catholic League took a swipe at Church Militant on EWTN's World Over program with Raymond Arroyo.
To spare you having to listen to any extra of his grating, Biden-like voice unnecessarily, we'll set the context for you. Their discussion was about sex abuse of minors by Catholic clergy and what the latest numbers reveal. Donohue correctly asserted that the numbers have declined precipitously.
For the record, that isn't because the bishops got all holy. It's because they got caught and exposed by secular media — and have had to pay billions of dollars because of it. None of them, of course, have gone to prison or had to pay any personal cost. They just took your money and, after lying and trying to cover it all up, finally paid victims (and, of course, attorneys) more than $4 billion.
The bishops, in short, stopped for no other reason except that it was bad for business — nothing else. Which, of course, raises the question that Donohue and Arroyo never asked: What do we suppose would be the case now had they not been caught or if the Church establishment had been successful in the cover-up?
All that said, nonetheless, they have declined. Donohue is right on that — right in about the most limited sex-abuse-excusing way you can be, but still correct.
He went on to say the secular media wants to keep bringing all this up because they are anti-Catholic and want to keep the narrative going, even though it's largely in the past. He correctly pointed out that sex abuse of minors is far greater, and gets little media attention in other institutions (like education, for example). Sure.
But this is where the old blowhard goes off the rails (because he always goes off the rails — it's his nature). He then accuses Church Militant of doing the same thing (constantly talking about child sex abuse because it "increases our donations"). Donohue is toting the EWTN line and the media empire that that Church of Nice outfit has constructed since Mother Angelica left the scene.
It's not so much what EWTN says (and this includes Arroyo), but what the outfit doesn't say. For example (since Donohue opened the door here, Church Militant is going to walk through it), first, he questions our integrity by saying we do what we do to get donations. Careful, Bill.
