Donohue Defends Palin Because Witchcraft is Real
The Catholic League's Bill Donohue comes to Sarah Palin's defense now that the video of her being blessed by Thomas Muthee has been making its way into the mainstream media, accusing the "chattering class" of ridiculing Palin's faith and demanding that they respect Muthee's apparent belief in witchcraft:
“Witchcraft is a sad reality in many parts of Africa, resulting in scores of deaths in Kenya over the past two decades. Bishop Muthee’s blessing, then, was simply a reflection of his cultural understanding of evil. While others are not obliged to accept his interpretation, all can be expected to respect it. More than that—Muthee should be hailed for asking God to shield Palin from harmful forces, however they may be manifested. And for this he is mocked and Palin ridiculed?
“We know that many cultural elites have a hard time embracing religion, but is it too much to ask that they at least show some manners when discussing subjects which most Americans hold dear?”
What exactly does Donohue mean by saying that "witchcraft is a sad reality in many parts of Africa" and that is has resulted "in scores of deaths in Kenya over the past two decades"? Is he saying that witches in Africa have actually killed people or is he merely referring to those situations where people kill others suspected of witchcraft?
Anyway, we look forward to Donohue finally coming out and decrying the incessant attacks the Right has been making on Barack Obama's faith for the last several months.
