Bill Donohue’s Moral Equivalence

Increasingly, the Catholic League’s Bill Donohue is less a defender of Catholicism and more a defender of the sycophantic whims of his patrons.

First was his shameful defense of the St. Patrick’s Gay Parade. Now his absurd moral equivalence with regard to yesterday’s Islamo-nazi shooting massacre at Charlie Hebdo.

Here is the key part of his statement.

Killing in response to insult, no matter how gross, must be unequivocally condemned. That is why what happened in Paris cannot be tolerated. But neither should we tolerate the kind of intolerance that provoked this violent reaction.
While he perfunctorily condemns the killing, he calls the cartoons a provocation for massacre.

Let’s get this straight. As Christians, we deplore mocking other people’s religious beliefs and Charlie Hebdo’s cartoon are understandably offensive. But to call such cartoons a provocation establishes a shameful moral equivalence between the act and the response.

An offensive cartoon may be a provocation for a sternly worded letter to the editor or even a boycott. But it is not a provocation to mass murder. A child’s bad behavior is not a provocation to abuse. A wife’s talkback is not a provocation to a broken nose. And an offensive cartoon is not a provocation to mass murder. To call it one is offensive to me. Maybe Bill Donohue just provoked me. Fortunately for Bill, I just write blog posts about such things.

  1. But to call such cartoons a provocation establishes a shameful moral equivalence between the act and the response.

    Well said.

    The pope is making the same false equivalence. He effectively equates slaughter with a “punch in the nose.” Them rag heads with AK47’s had a reason to be upset, you know.

  2. “But to call such cartoons a provocation establishes a shameful moral equivalence between the act and the response.”

    Perhaps Donohue has actually looked at the vile filth this rag produces such as their blasphemous depiction of the Blessed Trinity engaged in sodomitic acts.

    However, the criticism is inaccurate, because he does not propose a “moral equivalence”. The sin of the terrorists is clearly out of all proportion or equivalence to the sins of the cartoonists, and Donohue does not claim they are in any way equivalent.. But that still does not exonerate the cartoonists as though they were some great martyrs for “freedom of expression.”

    If people are fooled into thinking that the likes of “Charlie Hebdo” are on the side of the “good guys” by this sorry episode, then they are sorely mislead. Their adherence to the French Revolutionary principle of “laicite” arises from the same source as the Jihadists’ slaughter of innocents in the Middle East: the desire to eradicate the Church of God from the face of the earth.

    Both “Charlie” and their murderers serve the antichrist. Its just that their methods are more or less effective in different cultural contexts. This was a false flag incident: Satan’s minions killing Satan’s minions in order to further the apostasy from the worship of the true God.
