League says Soros Web site encouraged ‘anti-Catholic bigotry’
Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest Addthis

.- An Internet-based organization, funded by George Soros, made a slanderous attack against Catholics on its Web site yesterday. As part of its campaign protesting Republican efforts to change the filibuster rules governing federal court appointees, MoveOnPac.org posted a picture of a smiling Pope Benedict XVI holding a gavel outside the U.S. Supreme Court.  Above the picture, it read: “God already has a job. He does not need one on the Supreme Court. Protect the Supreme Court rules.”

The image has since been removed, but Catholic League president William Donohue expressed his concern and disdain for the Web site’s tactics.

“Of all the anti-Catholic canards ever expounded in American history, none is more infamous than the one that accuses the Vatican of steering U.S. public policy.  And this is exactly what Soros is doing now,” Donohue said. 

“Simply because Catholics and Protestants have come together to protest de facto discrimination against Christian pro-life judges by some Democrats, Soros thinks he has a right to fan the flames of anti-Catholic bigotry,” he stated.
