Catholic League Stands by Pope, Catholic Church via NYT Ad

In light of the global shitstorm that’s surrounded the Vatican, Pope Benedict and the Catholic Church following sexual abuse allegations from Wisconsin to Miami to Germany, Catholic League president Bill Donohue (left) is rushing to the defense of his religious brethren with a quarter-page ad in today’s New York Times (below).

Donohue didn’t spare the hyperbole, using the headline “Going for the Vatican Jugular” before rebutting the Times‘ editorializations and accusing the paper of teaming with “radical lawyer” Jeffrey Anderson in order to “weaken [the Church's] moral authority.” But why the spoil the rest. A larger image of the ad is after the jump.
