Bill Donohue Vs Andrew Sullivan

Catholic League blowhard Bill Donohue is predictably angry about Andrew Sullivan’s Newsweek cover story. The Jesus that Sullivan has created—“calm, loving, accepting,” and, of course, “homeless”—is what happens when “Occupy Wall Street” becomes mistaken for Catholicism.

Latino Rights Group Condemns NOM

Over at Think Progress, Zack Ford points out this statement from the National Council of La Raza: “The cravenness on display from NOM is reminiscent of another bastion of intolerance, the anti-immigrant movement. They too have enough political savvy to realize that first, Latinos are an important demographic and voting block and second, that movements built on bigotry and intolerance …
