Skip to comments.Left-Wing Wacko Roseanne Barr: Tax the Catholic Church (What a Moron)
Posted on 05/27/2012 6:30:55 PM PDT by Kaslin
On Friday, far-left actress Roseanne Barr went on an anti-Catholic rant on Twitter, as she seemingly gave her take on the controversy over ObamaCare's abortifacient/contraception mandate. Barr reused some of her previous bigoted attacks: painting Catholic priests as child molesters, and calling for the registration of the Church as a PAC. She even called for the taxation of the Catholic Church.
In her first Tweet, the washed-up comedian spewed, "Catholic employers need to include psychiatric coverage for their women employees's [sic] children who might get molested by catholic priests!" This echoes an April 2010 post Barr made on her personal blog, where she blasted church-going Catholics: "I am starting to think that any parent who takes their kids to catholic churches from now on should lose custody. Taking your kid where you know sex offenders hang out is inexcusable!!!"
A minute later, the left-wing personality continued her attack: "Catholic men deciding whether or not to include pregnancy issues in the health coverage they offer their employees-#PACs-tax them." In Barr's warped view, abortion and birth control are now lumped in the broad category of "pregnancy issues."
This isn't the first time that the Hollywood denizen has used this line. In November 2008, shortly after California voters passed Proposition 8, Barr not only singled out Catholics, but also Mormons and Jews. As NewsBusters' managing editor Ken Shepherd outlined:
Mormon and Catholic churches and Jewish synagogues should be forced to register with the IRS as political action committees because they have 'crossed the line between church and state' and 'hate our country' and want nothing less than the 'complete overthrow of the us [sic] government.'
So bellows leftist comedian Roseanne Barr in a November 6 blog post, citing support for Proposition 8, conservative sexual ethics, and support for the state of Israel as her reasons respectively.
Last but not least, the actress targeted Pope Benedict XVI in a third Tweet: "they imagine that by controlling the mothers of humanity-they are the ultimate mothers-that is why the pope wears a dress." With a lame smear like that, it's no wonder that Lifetime cancelled Barr's reality series after only one season in 2011.
She, like Spike Lee, tweeted what she thought was George Zimmerman’s address. I do hope she can be sued by Zimmerman after all of that is over.
mormons and Jews too huh. an equal opportunity bigot.
Is she the one who said any rich person who wouldn’t give all their money in excess of $100 million to the government should be beheaded?
Or was that Rosie O’Donnell?
You know who the real idiots are? Any of us who give a nickel to Hollywood.
The only churches I know of thathave blatant political activity are the black churches that all of the Dems line up to speak at each year.
If we could only put a tax on stupid, all our fiscal problems would be over.
Evangelicals, Presbyterians, Episcopalians and Universalist Unitatarians too?
The Catholics will WIN this battle because most Americans are tired of the ‘Catholic bashing’ already.
Let’s see which network or cable (HBO?) will hire her and let’s launch a massive ad boycott. Hit this bitch where it hurts.
These mormon-bashing threads have to stop!
They throw this stuff at the wall to see if anything sticks. If so they enact it. If not, they wait til later and try again. Its the Marxist way.
Researching family history and we’ve discovered that my great grandfather may have been a Polish Jew when he fled Europe.
I’m thoroughly enjoying the horror and despair of my liberal family members.
I live in a community that has more than 70 churches, no bars and only 3 or 4 sit-down restaurants. Some of these churches are using up blocks of the most valuable real estate within several hours' drive. There is one that is essentially "owned" by a charismatic character who lives in a new 12,000 SF house on several acres, built in the finest manner possible and containing the finest furnishings available anywhere.
Rosie should be taxed by the pound.
Rich: Feed Roseanne Barr to the starving. Imagine how many people she could feed.
People like Roseanne, Ward Churchill, Bill Maher and Hilary Rosen say the things all Democrats are thinking.
Are you thinking in terms of secular thoughts or in terms of everlasting life?
I’ll take everlasting life, thank you.
The Catholic Church can speak to issues, but never endorse a candidate.
Any church that does ENDORSE a candidate needs to be taxed, for then they have stepped out of the everylasting life genre into the present day politics of the secular world.
Where the child molesters hang out? Oh, she must mean the public schools.
