Yesterday, Catholic League president Bill Donohue issued a news release calling attention to the plea that Paul Zachary Myers made on his blog: he solicited the Communion Host for the express purpose of desecrating it. Donohue now responds to the reaction he has received from the University of Minnesota Morris professor, as well as others:
Myers went on Houston radio station KPFT last night saying that Bill Donohue has declared a fatwa against him. He should know betterI dont need others to do the fighting for me. Im quite good at it myself. But hed better be careful what he says, because if I get any death threats, it wont be hard to connect the dots.
Myers, who claims expertise in studying zebrafish, has quite a following among the King Kong Theory of Creation gang. Indeed, weve been inundated with hate mail from all over the world, and it all stems from those whose alleged god is reason.
As a result of the hysteria that Myers ilk have promoted, at least one public official is taking it seriously. Thomas E. Foley is chairman of Virginias First Congressional District Republican Committee, a delegate to the Republican National Convention and one of two Republican at large nominees for Virginias Electoral College. His concern is for the safety of Catholics attending this years Republican National Convention in Minneapolis, Myers backyard. Accordingly, Foley has asked the top GOP brass to provide additional security while in the Twin Cities so that Catholics can worship without fear of violence. Given the vitriol we have experienced for simply exercising our First Amendment right to freedom of speech, we support Foleys request.
We already know that Myers lost one round: the university has removed the link to his blog from his faculty page. He should be prepared to lose a few more rounds. By the way, Myers says he is delighted to have finally garnered my attention. Too bad I cant say the sameI never heard of the guy until yesterday.

The university needs to fire the man. Plenty of grounds. What would happen to him if he asked for Korans to desecrate?
That being said, did Professor Paul Z. Myers of the University of Minnesota Morris, say that Mohammad was a paedophile for "marrying" a pre-pubescent girl?
