CNN Promotes Stripper’s Claim that Catholic Church 'Dirtier Than What Goes on in Strip Clubs'
mrc ^ | June 30, 2012 | Paul Wilson, Joe and Betty Anderlik

On CNN HLN, when you don’t know how to answer an interview question, bash the Catholic Church. You’ll actually have your anti-Catholic bigotry promoted by CNN. In an interview with HLN’s Dr. Drew featured on CNN.com, stripper Joslyn Jones claimed that “most stuff that goes on at church” is “dirtier than what goes on in strip clubs.”

When challenged by Dr. Drew about the drug use and trauma history common among strippers, Jones deflected the question, bizarrely arguing: “It’s definitely very common, but it’s actually like, um, like I always try to use the analogy. You know, you look at the Catholic Church. How much nonsense and debauchery, and disrespect, and really underground, you know, seedy stuff goes on, that’s, the Catholic Church, you’re supposed to go to Church and everybody’s like oh I go to Church and I’m all prim and proper, sweet – it’s not really like that. Most stuff that goes on at church is dirtier than what goes on in strip clubs.” 

It is unclear what churches Jones has been to. It is perfectly clear, however, that her conception of the Catholic Church resembles the media-promoted caricatures of the Catholic Church found in “The Da Vinci Code” or “The Borgias.”

More troubling than her comments, however, is the question of why CNN chose to highlight her unhinged rant. Shamefully, CNN clipped the video with the tagline “Exotic dancer Joslyn Jones makes a controversial analogy between strip clubs and the Catholic Church,” and promoted the clip on its main page with the tagline “Dancer: Church dirtier than strip club.”

It is unsurprising that an exotic dancer would take a shot at the Catholic Church to deflect from her own behavior. But it is disgusting that CNN went out of its way to promote “controversial” anti-Catholic vitriol.

Well, half her opinion is probably formed from experience, if not the other.

Sinners in church... NO!

The response here is not to get defensive but to let her know that if she would like to change her life she would fit right in.

If church is dirtier than strip clubs, then strippers simply aren’t doing their jobs.

I expect to see this sort of thing and more coming out about the SBC now that they've taken a stand.

The DaVinci Code is mythology turned into pulp fiction. THE BORGIAS is at last based on stuff that actually happened. But again - 500 years ago. I’d hate to be judged based on what I was doing 500 years ago.

That is probably a better comparison with the Catholic Church parochial schools since very few child molesters go to strip clubs. With the molestation problems with priests I wouldn’t go throwing stones in glass houses.

Huh? So you believe all the leftist propaganda. That’s nice. You have no clue about the numbers, how it is a smidgeon compared to mosques, govt skools, temples, or wherever else — that the media will hardly, if at all, cover.

I bet you have no idea how the Catholic Church was infiltrated by the leftists and Masons, even before the 1960s. That’s what resulted in some problems — but not nearly the amount your Catholic-bashing self has imagined. All the whiny victims fabricating about what went on as well.

But I bet you wouldn't think twice about sending your kids to public school.

Strippers being featured as serious commentators on CNN.How fitting.Their 10,000 viewers (most of them a captive audience in airports) have now been enlightened.

Depends on the public school. They are like parochial schools. Not all are alike and not all are bad and not all are good.

“Depends on the public school. They are like parochial schools.”

No they’re not. Public schools depend on the monopoly power of government, enforced by the threat of violence, to survive in the face of competition from private schools, both secular and parochial. I’ll believe that public schools are “like” parochial schools when public-school officials drop their opposition to school vouchers.

I don’t know about that, I’ve known Priests threaten parents with this and that if they didn’t do this or that and it usually involves money...
