As you may be aware, Bill Donohue got his ass kicked this morning by CNN’s Chris Cuomo. Cuomo asked him “How does gay marriage compromise your rights?” Donohue offers the standard conservative Catholic nonsense about procreation. Cuomo correctly says “You don’t have to want to have kids to be married.” That sets Blowhard Bill bumbling about “alternative lifestyles” and heterosexual “privilege.”

Donohue has just fired back from his blog with “Bill Donohue to CNN’s Chris Cuomo: Where Are ‘Examples of Gay People Being Persecuted?’” Seriously?

How about these, just for starters: Ohio Catholic school fires teacher planning gay marriage or Pennsylvania Gay teacher fired from Catholic school for trying to wed partner or Gay vice principal Mark Zmuda said he was fired, offered option of divorce.

Furthermore, I will remind Blowhard Bill that every one of those “Christians,” who are now claiming that their religious liberty was compromised, unlawfully refused to service a gay couple. “We don’t serve your kind here” sure seems like persecution to me.

LGBT citizens are routinely fired, not hired, denied promotion, denied service and even denied housing simply for being LGBT. If Donohue claims to be unaware of that simple fact than he is more dishonest or more idiotic than I presumed him to be.
