I rarely think “comedian” Jon Stewart is amusing. He has, as a matter of fact, contributed to the coarsening of our culture and he should be ashamed of himself. He is also deeply anti-Catholic, though he hides his bigotry behind excuse of being “funny”.
Check out The Catholic League on Mr. Stewart’s anti-Catholicism. (WARNING: There is some really offensive material there.)
I saw the following video some days ago and hesitated to post about it because of the content. I changed my mind when I saw that the Fishwrap‘s nearly-always-wrong Michael Sean Winter’s (whose regularly levels ad hominem attacks on the undersigned, btw) got something right in writing about it (HERE). I’m happy to give credit when due. Winters got it right when he pointed to the fact that Sr. Simone Campbell, of the Nuns On The Bus and a poster sister for the LCWR sort of woman religious, allowed herself to be instrumentalized in what is nothing other than an attack on the Catholic Church and on the dignity of human life.
We expect Steward to be a crass bigot. It is scandal and shame that Sr. Campbell cooperated.
Her motive was clearly to run down the Church’s hierarchy.
And listen for her obvious lie at 0:42:
“The Vatican says we work too much for the needs of those who live in poverty.”
Don’t watch this if your are easily upset by coarseness.
Thanks, Sr. Simone.
Thanks for helping Stewart to degrade Holy Church for the entertainment of the young nitwits who are his main audience.
What a class act.
