I don't usually nitpick exact word choices, but.....
From the New York Times:
Turning the tables on an advocacy group [SNAP] that has long supported victims of pedophile priests, lawyers for the Roman Catholic Church and priests accused of sexual abuse in two Missouri cases have gone to court to compel the group to disclose more than two decades of e-mails that could include correspondence with victims, lawyers, whistle-blowers, witnesses, the police, prosecutors and journalists.

......

But William Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, a church advocacy group in New York, said targeting the network was justified because “SNAP is a menace to the Catholic Church.”

Mr. Donohue said leading bishops he knew had resolved to fight back more aggressively against the group: “The bishops have come together collectively. I can’t give you the names, but there’s a growing consensus on the part of the bishops that they had better toughen up and go out and buy some good lawyers to get tough. We don’t need altar boys.”

Really, I'm only quoting this because supergee hasn't yet. Link thanks to crowleycrow.

Bill Donohue has a legendary case of Foot In Mouth Disease.

Or, for a more classical reference, "I will, Oscar, I will."

I was hoping someone would point that out so I wouldn't have to, so thank you.

I swear, that dude has "We've found a witch, may we burn her?" written straight across his puffy red mug every time he turns up on one of those cable shows.

Wow. With that phrasing, it sounds like the bishops are leaving the altar boys to the priests, bishops want to molest grown lawyers!

Congratulations on supersnarkitude, even though I'm sure O'Reilly just meant that he didn't want anyone so naive as to believe in ethics.

If they better understood that they don't need altar boys, they wouldn't be in this mess in the first place.
