Homophobic Catholic leader tells gay people to stay away from Christmas and celebrate Ramadan instead
The head of the Catholic League is trying to make the yuletide straight again.
Bill Donohue, who has long fought against LGBT+ equality, penned a blog post complaining about the number of gay people who celebrate Christmas – raising objections to a RuPaul’s Drag Race Christmas tour and a Golden Girls screening.
He fumed: “We’ve never heard of gay-themed Hanukkah events, and we sure never heard of gay-themed Ramadan events, but there is a slew of Christmas ones.
“Maybe that’s because the boys like us best.”
Bill Donohue is very upset about Trixie Mattel singing ‘All I Want for Christmas is Nudes’
Donohue wrote: “The Ru Paul Drag Race show [sic] is being performed at various cities across the nation, hoping to bring some good cheer to those tired of normal celebrations. One of their songs is, ‘All I Want for Christmas is Nudes,’ something all the queens can identify with.
“San Francisco is the most homosexual-friendly city in the nation, so it is only natural that it would be home to The Golden Girls Live! The Christmas Episodes. It is said to appeal to aging homosexuals, men who are enthralled at the promise of sex after 40.
“Seattle is home to Jingle All the Gay, a Christmas event that pledges to be a ‘thoroughly queer time.’ We’re convinced it is.
“In the heartland of America, Twin Cities Pride magazine is boasting of a Miss Richfield ‘queer-friendly holiday show.’
“The publication notes that the holiday season is ‘already pretty queer.’ How’s that? ‘First you fist a turkey, Jesus has two dads, you dress the tree in drag—the list goes on.’ No doubt it does.”
Catholic League head has a long anti-LGBT record
Bill Donohue is known for his anti-LGBT views – calling for boycotts of businesses that support equality and encouraging churches to purge volunteers who are gay.
In 2018 he was invited on Fox News to vent about gay parents, claiming that gay people applying to adopt children was “a matter of gay bullying and harassment.”
He previously waged a campaign to censor ABC TV show The Real O’Neals because it featured a Catholic teen coming out as gay.
Donohue compared the show’s co-creator Dan Savage to the former leader of the KKK.
