Posted on 06/22/2017 3:26:47 PM PDT by heterosupremacist
Bee is no stranger to Catholic bashing, again she ripped the Catholic Church in her June 21st show. Her focus was the Child Victims Act, a bill being considered by the New York State legislature.
The least controversial aspect of the bill is extending the number of years that alleged victims could sue; the most controversial component is allowing a one-year window to revive old cases.
According to Bee, the bills opponents are evil-minded persons who seek to justify child sexual molestation (she went off-the-rails on me). She interviewed a sponsor of one of the bills, State Senator Brad Hoylman, who said opposition was coming from the Catholic Church, yeshivas, and the Boy Scouts.
It is striking that Hoylman did not mention the public schools. Thats because they have traditionally been exempt from coverage in these bills. In 2009, when they were included, the public school establishment went ballistic and the bill failed. This year the public schools were included, but given their low profile, they either knew that the lawsuits would focus on the Catholic Church, or they were going to get another pass at the last moment.
The reason why I have long opposed these bills is twofold: a) they suspend the statute of limitations, a due process staple for the accused, and b) anti-Catholic bigotry. Regarding the latter, in every state where legislation like this has been considered, rapacious lawyers with a history of Catholic bashing have zeroed in on the local diocese, dragging up cases from a half-century ago where many witnesses have died or memories have faded. The public schools always get a pass.
The latest data show that .004 percent of the Catholic clergy had a credible accusation made against them in the year 2014-2015. No institution, secular or religious, can match that record.

SAMANTHA BEES DISHONEST
Never heard of it.
Skipping the bee...
I have seen her show advertised and she always comes across as smug. Sort of like she knows she has said something brilliant when in fact she has mostly just lied.
Can’t imagine watching her.
WTF is a samantha bee?
Someone Glenn Beck kisses the butt of.
As the battles around Saratoga raged, the British, having been pushed back, were being rallied by Brigadier General Simon Fraser. Benedict Arnold [at the height of his pre-treason fame] rode up to General Morgan, pointed at Fraser and told Morgan the man was worth a regiment. Morgan called on Murphy and said: "That gallant officer is General Fraser. I admire him, but it is necessary that he should die, do your duty." Murphy scaled a nearby tree, took careful aim at the extreme distance of 300 yards, and fired four times. The first shot was a close miss, the second grazed the General's horse...From The Man Who Shot Simon Fraser:
...Within a few moments a rifle ball cut the crupper of Fraser's horse, and another passed through his horse's mane. Calling his attention to this, Fraser's aide said, 'it is evident that you are marked out for particular aim, would it not be prudent for you to retire from this place?' Fraser replied, 'my duty forbids me to fly from danger.' The next moment he fell mortally wounded by a ball from the rifle of Murphy and was carried off the field by two grenadiers.And again from Wikipedia:
Fraser tumbled from his horse, shot through the stomach. General Fraser died that night. British Senior officer Sir Francis Clerke, General Burgoyne's chief aide-de-camp, galloped onto the field with a message. Murphy's fourth shot killed him instantly. Murphy also fought at the battle of the Middle Fort in 1780.There appears to be some doubt about who actually shot General Simon Frasier. See: The Man Who Shot Simon Fraser
Looks like I posted that on the wrong thread. Sorry...
An arrogant skank who pretends to be a comedian on TBS. She is nothing more than an America, conservative, Christian and Jew hating leftist bigot.
Turn the sound off and watch her manic jumping around she does.
She needs Ritalin.
