Catholic League president Bill Donohue told Cenk Ugyur of The Young Turks on Thursday that he didn’t want Daily Show host Jon Stewart to be fired, he just wanted an apology.
“He has apologized for all kinds of things in the past,” Donohue said.
The Catholic League on Thursday launched a boycott against the sponsors of the Daily Show over a segment that featured “vagina mangers.” In the segment, which aired on April 16, Stewart mocked Fox News for criticizing the phrase “war on women.” He noted that the 24 hour news network had been promoting the phrase “war on Christmas” for years.
“What can women do to generate the same sense of outrage from Fox as” the alleged war on Christmas, Stewart asked. “Perhaps they could play into the theme. Maybe women could protect their reproductive organs from unwanted medical intrusions with vagina mangers.”
A picture of a nude women with a nativity scene ornament between her leg appeared beside Stewart, which Donohue described as “unprecedented vulgar assault on Christians.”
When asked about a picture on the Catholic League’s website that purportedly shows Stewart in hell, Donohue said the comedian was surrounded by “fireworks,” not brimstone.
“Let me tell you something, I have determination and I have money and this is going to go on for weeks and months,” Donohue said. “Nobody in this country is not going to know about it.”
The Catholic League has vowed to rally every major Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Mormon and Muslim leader and organization in the nation against Stewart.
