Catholic League's Donohue: Secularists Fighting War on Christmas

Catholic League President Bill Donohue tells Newsmax he is fighting against a “war on Christmas” being waged by secularists trying to “dilute or neuter” the real meaning of the religious holiday.

He also declares that some atheists who attack Christmas are “mean-spirited people” using the First Amendment as a club. The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights is a New York-based nonprofit organization that claims more than 230,000 members. Donohue has been president since 1993.

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax TV, Donohue says the Catholic League has been dealing with the war on Christmas “even before I took over. “Go back to the 1980s. At that point it was more of an ACLU kind of fight. There’s a lot of litigation that went on. They’ve kind of pulled back, in all honesty, in more recent years.

“What’s happened is more insidious because it went from the legal segment of our society right into the culture, particularly multiculturalism, which is really just a club to beat down Western civilization and the Judeo-Christian heritage upon which we were founded. “So what they tried to do is to dilute or to neuter the meaning of Christmas. It’s a much bigger agenda. The real agenda is the secularization of our society and some of these people don’t even shy away from telling us about it.”
