Catholic League Claims Gay Dog’s Rescue From Death Is Anti-Straight Discrimination
William Donahue, President of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, threw in his two holy cents about Elton — the “gay” dog that was spared euthanasia by a good Facebook Samaritan — by arguing that the gays are now receiving preferential treatment:
The quest for autonomy has reached such a macabre level in the Netherlands that last year the Royal Dutch Medical Association expanded the list of conditions legalizing euthanasia to include “loneliness.”
In the state of Washington, a debate is currently raging over whether to expand the list of conditions legalizing euthanasia to include those who are not terminally ill, as well as those who are mentally disabled….
The place where Elton was dropped, Euthanasia Jackson TN, encourages dog adoption, but it also promotes dog euthanasia. Not, however, in Elton’s case: the shelter has no stomach for putting dogs down on the basis of sexual orientation. It must be said, though, that the shelter is not exactly inclusive in its policies. To wit: Had poor Elton not been identified as a homosexual, his heterosexuality would not have been enough to save his hide.
The moral of the story is: Being gay is not only a bonus for humans these days, it is a definite plus for dogs as well. As for straights, the lonely and the disabled, that’s another story altogether.
First of all, there’s no moral to Donahue’s story. Morals exist in things that make sense. Second, if Elton had been “heterosexual” he wouldn’t have been at Euthanasia Jackson to begin with. The fact that his owner decided his dog’s apparent homosexuality was justification for ending his life was the real crux of the matter.
And finally, damn right being gay is a “bonus.” We also get to automatically pass go and collect $200, which we will then spend on our gay dogs.

Sweet Jebus this guy is nuts. Do Catholics like him being the face of their Church in America?

Donohoe isn't really an official Catholic spokesperson for anything. He made up his office himself, and just goes around representing his own personal beliefs. He's not really attached to the church. I'm sure his opinion isn't so different in many cases, but he's a total fraud. Any news outlet who has him on is lazy and to be avoided.

How did he first start getting news coverage, and why? It was in the 2000s. Did someone misunderstand that he wasn't the face of anything, just a random nut like Westboro?

R3, much of what you see on the new networks is staged theater and they need actors.
Remember how it was neck-and-neck between Obama and Romney in the last week of October according to the news fakers? Remember how desirable they told you the Facebook IPO was?

For R2 and R3, who apparently don't know anything about Catholicism in the United States:

R2 is right. He appointed himself as Defender of the Faith. Total fraud and a complete whackjob.

There aren't any Catholics in Jackson, Tennessee. And I believe Mr. Donahue is some kind of New York tea room queen.

I want Jesus to come on back and clarify his message to his followers and the rest of the world, so we can finally get it straight (no pun intended) about just what his message was really all about and who and what was included.

Money and attention grubbing douche, that's what the guy is.
'Give me money and attention, so I can rant about more shit like this!'.
Who needs jobs when you can become some conservative bible belt personality who gets rich by people donating to your bullshit cause?
