Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, appeared Wednesday on The 700 Club with host Pat Robertson to say that the church is being forced by the federal government to allow gay people to adopt children, which is “against nature.”
Donohue dismissed gay rights advocates as “cultural nihilists,” worse than “Marxists and radical leftists,” who want to tear down the social order, which he said revolves around Christianity in the United States.
In Massachusetts and California, he claimed, gay advocates say that “the Catholic Church has to be required, in order to get any kind of federal money, when it comes to adopting children, to allow gays to adopt children.”
“We’re not going to allow gay people to adopt children,” he said. “That’s against nature. It’s against nature’s God. But they won’t stop.”
Donohue also says that the pedophilia problem in the Catholic Church is more correctly classified as a “homosexual problem,” and that Dawn Rogers, the Obama nominee for the Office of Special Counsel, plans to launch a crusade against the tax-exempt status of the church.
