Left-Wing Wacko Roseanne Barr: Tax the Catholic Church (What a Moron)
News Buaters.com ^ | May 27, 2012 | Matthew Balan

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.

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?

The Catholics will WIN this battle because most Americans are tired of the ‘Catholic bashing’ already.

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 think all churches should have to pay property taxes and I think that the ones that are purely, openly and blatantly profit-oriented should not be tax-exempt.

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.

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.

Now here is this fat, ugly housewife who got lucky and made people laugh with her ignorant jokes.
She left her husband when the money came in and married another comedian, who she left.
Getting money ,in her mind, made her smart enough to start showing people just how ignorant she is.

There it is her life history.

Stills a fat ugly woman who thinks she is smart.

Actually, it WAS Roseanne who said that anyone with a net worth of more than $80 million who doesn’t “share” it should be beheaded.

Roseanne’s net worth: $80 million. So that’s where she came up with this amount.

Moonbat Roseanne has been mentally ill for a long time.
She and Cher should stay the hell off Twitter. They’re both wack jobs.

Roseanne Barr is an example of a culture that is, as Robert Bork has called it, “Slouching Towards Gomorrah.” This moral decline has touched every aspect of American life: social, cultural, and political. Barr has truly lost her moral compass when she attacks one of the world’s bastions of moral authority. Barr’s immoral position falls in line with today’s glorification of violence, destruction of property, and mindless hatred of law, authority, and tradition. If there was a challenge as to who could outslut the sluts, Roseanne Barr would certainly step up to the plate.

Another example of a washed-up former “entertainer” compensating for her lack of appeal by making increasingly outrageous statements.

Ignore the rants and they`ll go away eventually.

The Catholics may indeed win the battle, but I doubt it has anything to do with most Americans being fed up with Catholic bashing. Very likely the majority of Americans have no clue what this flap between the church and the regime is or what it means.

Tax deductions for charity should be eliminated altogether in a way that produces $0 new revenues. This would result in a tax cut for all. People who choose to support organizations would have more money for that purpose. What would be eliminated is people and businesses contributing for tax purposes.

I thought the headline said "taze the Catholic Church"...

***

Anyway, why stop there? why not use anti-trust laws to "break it up" like that other benevolent monopoly that worked famously, Ma Bell? Maybe they could "deregulate" the Catholic Church?

Deregulate. Now there's a euphemism.

That's what the lottery is. It doesn't affect rich-stupids much, but it certainly helps to keep the poor-stupids poor.
