Catholic League president Bill Donohue blasted the recent anti-Catholic Bendetta film, declaring the film’s goals as aligned with those of radical groups Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM) in their aims to undermine Western civilization, while criticizing President Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi for their pro-abortion stances. He also spoke against the silence over recent attacks on churches.
Donohue, appearing on Steve Malzberg’s weekly commentary show Eat the Press, began by denouncing the French film Bendetta, director Paul Verhoeven’s latest, which features lesbian nuns engaging in clandestine sex acts, including one with a wooden figurine of the Virgin Mary, in 17th century Italy.
“This is an attack, really, on Western civilization because as everyone knows it’s the Judeo-Christian heritage that is the basis of Western civilization,” he said.
Donohue then likened the goals of the film to those of radical groups Antifa and BLM as well as the many who hate America.
