The Catholic League’s Vice President of Spooky Things, Bill Donahue, rushed out a press release yesterday to defend Sarah Palin’s church after a 2005 video surfaced showing a minister performing an anti-witchcraft incantation over her bowed head.
“Witchcraft is a sad reality in many parts of Africa, resulting in scores of deaths in Kenya over the past two decades. Bishop Muthee’s blessing, then, was simply a reflection of his cultural understanding of evil. While others are not obliged to accept his interpretation, all can be expected to respect it. More than that—Muthee should be hailed for asking God to shield Palin from harmful forces, however they may be manifested. And for this he is mocked and Palin ridiculed? We know that many cultural elites have a hard time embracing religion, but is it too much to ask that they at least show some manners when discussing subjects which most Americans hold dear?”
Damn you elitists and your witch denying ways! Don’t you know most Americans hold witches dear? Damn you!
