CNN's Cuomo Blasts Bill Donohue: 'Why Do You Want to Discriminate Against Gays?'
On the 27 February 2014 edition of New Day, CNN's Chris Cuomo hammered the Catholic League's Bill Donohue for his opposition to same-sex "marriage" and his support of the now-vetoed SB 1062 in Arizona. Cuomo mouthed the talking points of the social left on LGBT issues: "Why do you want to discriminate against gays? You say, we don't...only the marriages bother us. But that's the same thing, because their right as an individual is to marry."
The anchor even questioned Donohue's Catholicism, for supposedly standing with "these Christians who are more of the extreme...[who] have their own rigid beliefs," and against Pope Francis (or, more specifically, the liberal media's spin about him):
CHRIS CUOMO: You have a leader in your church, the Pope, and his message that is drawing so much acclaim; that is bringing so many people back to your church; is so different from the one you're offering up. And I know you have your op-ed coming up that says that when the Pope said, who's it for me to judge gays, he was making an assumption that there are gays who are seeking God – by the way, you can be gay and be seeking God – and he's saying love; he's saying forgive; he's saying include. And that is not what that law was about, and that's not what you're saying.
