Bill Donohue is that old white guy in his underwear that calls himself the “Catholic League,” and pretends to be an anti-defamation organization. As if one could actually defame a cult like Catholicism.
And he absolutely despises anyone who dares to publicly criticize, question, or make fun of Catholicism, in spite of its wretched and immoral past/present (i.e. priestly pedophiles). Penn and Teller’s show, Bullshit!, is planning to end its season with an episode on the Vatican. If their previous shows are any indication, then this one will be an embarrassment to the Catholic cult, exposing their … bullshit.

PENN & TELLER MUST GO
Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on an ad he wrote for todayâ€™s edition of Variety:
Todayâ€™s ad in Variety (click here) is a direct response to the latest hate speech by Penn & Teller against Catholics. Both Penn Jillette, and Showtime (owned by CBS), are flagging the attack on the Vatican that is featured in its season finale, August 27. Given the history of Penn & Tellerâ€™s vicious record of Catholic bashing, we have no reason to doubt that this episode will be particularly vile. In the ad, we cited previous examples of their malicious assaults, especially on Mother Teresa.
CBS management has spoken to the Catholic-bashing duo before, but to no effect. Though we are not calling for CBS/Showtime to cancel the upcoming episode, we are saying that the time has come to pull the plug on their show; their contract should not be renewed. Those who agree should contact Matthew Blank, the Chairman and CEO of Showtime.

Don’t let Donahue and his cult followers be the only voice Showtime hears. Send an email to them, stating what you appreciate about P&T‘s funny, provocative, yet informative public service in the form of an entertaining show.
One thing’s for sure: I’ll be sure not to miss the season finale and I’m glad Penn and Teller’s Bullshit! got a free ad in Variety at Donahue’s expense. What a dumbass!
