    Catholic League ^ | August 28, 2009 | Bill Donohue
    Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on last night’s edition of Penn & Teller’s show. The program aired on Showtime which is owned by CBS: The Nazis couldn’t have done better. Having been in this job for over 16 years, I have never seen a more defamatory, obscene and vicious show on TV. And I mean about any religious or demographic group—not just Catholics. The lies about the Catholic Church, to say nothing of the vile language used by Penn Jillette, were positively astounding. Moreover, it never attempted to be comedic—from the very beginning it advertised the show as payback...

    In 2003, Showtime's Penn & Teller program with a name not appropriate above the fold -- unless, of course, you're a member of the Netroots! -- marvelously exposed what's behind the global warming and environmental hysteria in America today. The videos have just come available on YouTube. In part one (embedded right), the comedy team accurately depicted environmentalists as political and social activists who use green rhetoric to "cloak agendas that actually have more to do with anti-corporatism, anti-globalization, anti-business, and very little to do with science and ecology." Exactly. Parts two and three are embedded below the fold with...

    As some of you know, Penn & Tell have a show, on Showtime, called, well we'll just call it BS!. Tonight's episode is about gun control. 10PM eastern on Showtime (repeats at various times over the next week). From the video preview, Penn: a .44 slug in the brain stops rape in an instant. That sets the tone for the show. Make sure the kids aren't around, the language is R-Rated.

    LOS ANGELES, June 22 - How do you sell a movie about the dirtiest joke ever told? [Snip] "There is no violence or hostility of any kind" in "The Aristocrats," explained Penn Jillette, an executive producer of the film, who is better known as half of the magic act Penn and Teller. "We want to say: 'We have 150 really funny human beings in the back of a room making each other laugh, but they're going to be swearing, and if you don't want to hear swearing, you better not come in.' " Mr. Jillette; the comedian Paul Provenza, who...

    CBS PETITIONED TO PROBE SHOWTIME Catholic League president William Donohue explained today the league’s strategy for dealing with Showtime, the cable network that recently aired a hate-filled episode of “Penn and Teller”: “On May 23, 24 and 27, Showtime’s ‘Penn and Teller’ aired the ‘Holier Than Thou’ episode that has so enraged Catholics, as well as people of all faiths (click here). The obscene assault on Mother Teresa, her Missionaries of Charity and the Catholic Church was arguably the most vicious anti-Catholic fare ever shown on television in the United States. An excerpt of this show was sent to 350...

    Political sleight of hand -- it's no magic "People have been wondering whether a word from my discipline — ''misdirection'' — can be applied to another world altogether: the world of politics." By PENN JILLETTE I've been a professional magician for 28 years. I'm not the best magician in the world or even the best magician in Penn & Teller. Those "bests" are the same guy, my partner, Teller. He knows his magic -- he can lie, cheat and steal on stage better than anyone I've ever known or heard about. But I'm the theoretician. So I'm going to try...
