Catholics United called on Senator John McCain to denounce the bigoted and intolerant comments of author Jerome Corsi. Corsi, who recently reprised his 2004 attacks on the Democratic candidate for president with the book Obama Nation, has a history of making statements offensive to Catholics and other people of faith.
Corsi has admitted that in March 2003 he posted a comment on the Free Republic website stating, “Boy buggering in both Islam and Catholicism is okay with the Pope as long as it isn’t reported by the liberal press.” In December 2002 he wrote, “So this is what the last days of the Catholic Church are going to look like. Buggering boys undermines the moral base and the [sic] laywers rip the gold off the Vatican altars. We may get one more Pope, when this senile one dies, but that’s probably about it.”
