Rep. Jim Moran, Democrat of Virginia, is angry at Catholic League president Bill Donohue for protesting the anti-Christian video that was removed from the Smithsonian Institution; it was part of a larger art exhibit. What he said about Donohue, as quoted in the Washington Post, went beyond mere criticism. Moran said Donohue "implicitly condoned all the pedophilia that was going on in the church."
Donohue responds today:
Congressman Moran has been accused of being an anti-Semite by his own Jewish colleagues in the House of Representatives, and he has a track record of bashing the Catholic Church. So it is not a shocker that he has returned to the well again.
Moran can call me any name he wants, but he is walking a libelous line to say that I condone sexual abuse. The law aside, it is despicable that a sitting congressman would make such an outrageously indefensible accusation. Any time he wants to debate me on this issue, or any other, I will be glad to make the necessary media contacts.
Moran is a loose cannon and a disgrace to the United States Congress. We will make sure his colleagues learn of his latest outburst.
Moran would not be the first elected official to pad his resume with fictitious military service, if his Congressional bio turns out to be accurate.
His last campaign was against a challenger with 24 years of active military service - it would be surprising if he hadn't highlighted any authentic service he rendered.
Though resume-padding seems to be a Moran habit.
Every article refrring to his father describes Moran Sr. as a "professional football player." He played a few games with the short-lived Boston Redskins franchise the year after he graduated college.
“Oh, big time. A big time gay activist.”
So, why does he still live there and publish lying filth?
“....but, sigh...then....the pictures of the starving mother somewhere in Africa holding an also starving, bloated bellied baby with its teeth hanging out, flies lined up around its mouth and eyes, and the mother pregnant with another child......”
Well, Africa ain’t America. In most of Africa, it’s not “no means no,” it’s “no means keep hitting me till I stop struggling.”
