Skip to comments.HOWARDS TURN-Catholic League Promising Full Scale Boycott of Proposed CBS/Howard Stern Late Show
Posted on 03/07/2002 7:51:58 AM PST by codebreaker
If there's anything to reports that CBS might replace David Letterman with Howard Stern if Letterman jumps to ABC, Stern's critics will be ready with a full-scale boycott.
The (self syled-ed.) King of All Media-whose radio show propelled Mel Karmazin into the vice chairmanship of Viacom/CBS-has often boasted he could dominate late night TV.
But Catholic League president William Donohue thunders, "CBS is out of its mind if it thinks it can get away with moving Howard Stern into the Letterman slot without a fight."
Donohue who plans to target one advertiser at a time, said, "No one in the entertainment business has angered more Americans than Howard Stern."
Ditto on John Galt for his two cents. The Catholic League has no need to "clean up" their own house--and I presume you mean the Church--before taking on that Catholic-bashing, Christophobic worm, Howard Stern. The Catholic League's mission is to criticize those who attack Catholic beliefs and the Church. That's plenty.
Bump for the Catholic League, doing God's work in defending His Church here in America.
Oh, for you Rome-Is-The-Whore-of-Babylon nutcases, here's your cue: Fire away.
It's comments like that that fuel the fire of the Democratic Party demagogues and turn many voters off to conservative candidates, because the 'Rats make a connection between conservatives in general and censorship-happy nitwits like Donohue.
Go ahead, Mr. Donohue, advance your puritanical, holier-than-thou, and hypocritical (considering the pedophila allegations against many Catholic clergy) agenda. Tell Stern's viewers and advertisers that they're going straight to hell if they patronize an entertainer who's exercising his 1st Amendment rights. And then see how many leftist, anti-Catholic Democrats that your agenda helps get elected, because your goddamned puritanism scares voters away from conservatives.
Don't know why you've got a bee in your bonnet over the Catholic League, but I'll bet it stems from problems with the Church.
Youll never make a living as a gambler.
I have no problem with the Church, dope. Im Catholic.
I just hate busybodies like Donohue. Really, the guy cant find a better use for his time than battling against a television show that doesnt exist?
She makes me sick. But I don't deny her her right to do it; when I start doing that, I might as well start supporting CFR.
For years, the entertainment industry, liberal educators, self-serving politicians, and their supporters have been "dumbing-down" the populace, insulting religious beliefs, and generally leading us further into the sewer!
Evidently, some of you believe this is justified because to complain against such obvious attacks would be "judgmental" behavior (or worse, infringes on the "rights" of the perpetrator). I suspect many of you think "someone" will step up to the plate to correct the problem...and, "by gosh when they do, they'll get my vote!" Oh, "but if they challenge me to think about my own participation in this moral slide to decay...I'll just sit here on my computer and trash them!"
..."I'm an adult! I expect to be treated like one! I can handle Howard Sterns despicable ranting...It doesn't matter to me! I'll just choose not to watch!" To all of you who think in such terms; Let me be clear:
You are moral cowards who are even more despicable than Howard Stern! You see a person (Stern) who is through his disgusting presentations is tearing down your very core beliefs, your faith, and your family...and you do NOTHING but "label as freaks" the very people and organizations that are trying to put a stop to the real problems associated with a declining moral standard!
Mr. Donohue and the Catholic League have stepped up to the plate! Thank God they have! They are involved in an endless struggle to overcome the corruption people like you allow to happen!
You all can go back now to ignoring the problems; Changing the subject by blaming "Cardinal Law" for every problem in the universe; And defending Howard Stern's right to fill your minds with garbage, while hiding from the idea that you have a responsibility, and duty, as an "equal citizen" under the law to register a protest against the corruption!
...Because, I'm sure someone you "approve of" will eventually take care of the problem so you don't have to bother about getting involved right now.
"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate,
tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds."

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
church of the Laodiceans I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou were cold or hot
So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth
Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing'--and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked--
I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Standards applied mean quality upheld, in everything and everywhere. Maybe those folks all DO live in trailerparks and just don't know any better (bet,though, their the same folks who squawk when some newbie doesn't follow formatting standards). Thank God William Donohue does. V's wife.
I don't really care for how she handles her callers. But, you called her hypocritical. Why do you say this?
