Jesse Ventura: Catholic Church like the Mafia

The chronically-appalled christianists at are up in arms over comments made on last Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher. Seems guest Jesse Ventura thinks the ongoing criminal enterprise operated by the Catholic Church deserves criminal investigation and charges under the RICO statutes.

Sounds reasonable to me.

However, the aghast agape-ons at Lifesite leap automatically and autistically to the defense, noting that, after all, Bill Maher has described the Pope as a "Nazi."

Well, he was. Hitler Youth membership counts, doesn't it?

To cap off their spirited defense of Papa Ratzi, the indignant writers at Lifesite quote the estimable Bill Donohue of the Catholic League (defined by Kathy Griffin as "some guy with a computer").

Well, that settled that, I guess.
