Bill Donohue: Affleck, Whoopi, Rosie are Chronic Catholic-Bashers

Ben Affleck, Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell are among the worst Catholic-bashers in the country, according to Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights.

Donohue's bare-knuckle charge came after a verbal brawl between Affleck and Bill Maher in which the comic criticized Islam for opposing liberal principles like free speech, freedom of religion, and equality. Affleck suggested Maher's comments were discriminatory, similar to slurs against Jews.

But Donohue, appearing Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV, tore into the outspoken Oscar-winner as a hypocrite unwilling to criticize Muslims while fine with taking on Catholics.

"In 1999, Ben Affleck starred in the anti-Catholic movie, 'Dogma' which said the Virgin Mary had a daughter through sex with Joseph and then she went and worked in an abortion clinic," said Donohue, referring to the R-rated film directed by Kevin Smith and filled with sex-charged dialogue and crude humor.

"They asked him about this, is this anti-Catholic? He goes, it was definitely meant to push buttons. So we know, he's not going to push the buttons of Muslims, just Catholics."

Donohue then added two of the hosts of ABC-TV's "The View" to the list.

"Rosie O'Donnell, another one of these ex-Catholics, they are the worst Catholic-bashers in the country," he said.

"Same with Whoopi Goldberg and they're always bashing us. If they only showed one ounce of the sensitivity to Catholics that they show to Muslims, I wouldn't even have a job."

Donohue said many liberals are willing to be sympathetic towards radical Islamists because, "a lot of these people really don’t like America … and they don't like Jews either and I'm so fed up with these phonies."

Donohue, who is also a Newsmax contributor, also weighed in on the U.S. Supreme Court's decision not to rule on whether states can ban gay marriage, clearing the way for same sex unions in five states.

"It has to go back to the social and cultural fallout of the 1973 decision [legalizing abortion called] Roe v. Wade. That decision should never have been made by the Supreme Court, it should've been up to the states," he said.

"The Supremes learned a lesson, this country's become culturally torn apart, a major part of the cultural war has been about abortion … I'm very disappointed in the Supreme Court, but it's entirely predictable."
