Catholic League Bashes Gustavo for Pedo-Priest Articles; Gustavo Responds!
|Donohue: Lace-curtain Irish|
In other words, he's a pendejo who frequently trashes sex-abuse victims and their supporters, fumes about false outrages, and loves to blather. So it was about time Donohue came up to the plate and swung at me--and struck out.
Earlier this week, he sent out a missive to the media and the Catholic League's email list titled "Arellano's Dirty Hands," in which he called me a "rank hypocrite" because...um, I'm not sure. He says I have "learned to perfect" anti-Catholicism despite offering no examples. Parse through his statements enough, and his sore spot comes to light: I write too much about pedo-priests!
Donohue dismissed my nearly decade-long coverage of the Catholic Church sex-abuse scandal as "Father Murphy's alleged groping in the 1950s." Never mind that I've never written about a Father Murphy (I have written about Pat Murphy, the Mater Dei High administrator who let boys' basketball coach Gary McKnight keep his job even though McKnight let a child-abuser who happened to be his former assistant coach back on campus last decade despite Murphy telling McKnight not to. Shadows of Penn St.'s own pedo-scandal? You know it!); that the Diocese of Orange has had its priests arrested for child molestation as recently as two years ago; and that the men who protected bona fide pedophile priests (shall I read to you accounts of the triple-penetrations that Eleuterio Ramos subjected his victims to, Billy Boy?) continue to operate in Orange instead of a jail cell--that's you, John Urell!
HA! Other religions? I guess Bill doesn't consider Calvary Chapel a religion, as we've been on that beat for a while now. Sex-abuse in schools? So the disabled girl who got molested by a teacher's aide at Saddleback High, a molestation hushed up by school officials who had previously hushed up sex assaults on a school campus, stories ignored by the lamestream media until we exposed them, doesn't count? Or the other stories my colleagues have covered on tips I gave them? Laughable.
Damn straight I go against purveyors of human slavery, Bill: it's called the Catholic Church hierarchy that continues to protect pedophiles, their protectors, and their apologists all these years later. And I can't wait to do it for many, many more years, along with all the other pedo-protectors out there, secular and not. Gracias for the love! And heckuva job, Brownie!
