Rosie O'Donnell: Catholic Church is Like Jonestown Suicide Cult [Ecumenical]
NewsBusters.org ^ | 04/07/2010 | Matthew Balan

On her April 5 satellite radio show, Rosie O'Donnell took her anti-Catholicism to a new level by likening the Catholic Church to the Jonestown cult. As Brian Maloney of The Radio Equalizer put it, "in Rosie's twisted world, there's really no distinction to be made between the Pope and Jim Jones, murderous cult leader responsible for the deaths of more than 900 people in the Guyanese jungle."

O'Donnell certainly has a past of Catholic/Christian bashing. On the April 19, 2007 edition of ABC's The View, she expressed her concern that having five Catholic Supreme Court justice somehow violated the separation of church and state (Barbara Walters actually defended these justices in response). Later in 2007, the Catholic League placed an ad in the New York Times complaining about O'Donnell and her then-colleague Joy Behar's anti-Catholic remarks on the ABC daytime program....

Fat, drunk and stupid is a hell of a way to go through life, Rosie.

Is there any information on her educational background? I'm beginning to think we need to vet people much more closely BEFORE we hand them an open microphone or a job on Capital Hill. Sadly, we need to delve beyond a Bachelor's Degree and find out exactly WHERE that degree was obtained. In the shape this country is in, we need to think VERY carefully about who we listen to and examine the background of the mouth piece BEFORE we take up any further discussion of the merits of their ideas.

Rosie is proof that demonic possession can be partial and still permit the person possessed to live a moderately functional life (however much hate-filled)...

While there are indeed a small number of ultramontanist nutcases that would off themselves if Pope Benedict told them to do so, the vast majority of believing Catholics are relatively sane. The same can NOT be said of Mr. O’Donnell, who has become a stereotypical bitter bull dyke with a severe case of penis envy.

I’m not Catholic. I just wanted to say that I find Rosie O’Donnell repulsive. Shut your piehole Rosie!

A woman with what are euphemistically called "issues". Should-a stuck with playing Betty Rubble.

If that is her attempt to be humorous...

Rosie needs to lay off the Angry Sour Puss pills she is addicted.

On the upside folks when a subject matter in the MSM starts getting attn. hits from Rosie O and Rosanne Bar (shell be next) then IMO the mud slinging and slander towards whatever target is.. has been rode out.

Culture of death society is so busy racing towards nowhere.

To bad if they new the Truth they would slow down because the end game plan would be apparent.

I only know of one major religion which has factions that endorse suicide as an act pleasing to God, and it’s not Catholicism.

Her studio audience is more like the Jonestown Suicide Cult, IMO.

Rosie knows that she’s being paid to say the most vile, outrageous things she can get away with over the airwaves. That’s her gig and that’s what the employer expects. “Edgy”. She’s just as much a “shock jock” as Howard Stern ever was. More in fact.

I don't watch her. Just wondering, has she ever said anything bad about Islam?
