'SNL' Rips Gay Priests

NEW YORK, May 6, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- Catholic League president Bill Donohue (photo) comments on a skit from the May 4th episode of "Saturday Night Live":
 
"SNL" went on a tear against homosexual priests on Saturday. Michael Che Campbell (his father named him after Che Guevara, the Cuban terrorist) made a quip about Pope Francis' warning against the negative aspects of gossip. Campbell asked, "Did you hear what happened to those altar boys?"
 
It is true that heterosexual priests rarely act inappropriately with altar girls, so Campbell is right not to indict straight men for the behavior of homosexuals. But even if homosexual priests are largely responsible for the sexual abuse of minors--they account for more than 80 percent of the cases--it smacks as homophobic to keep bringing this up.
