Conservative Catholic Group Calls Greene a “Disgrace” Over Comments
The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights spoke out against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), calling her a “disgrace” for the comments she made about the church.
In a recent interview, Greene said that Christian organizations and churches that are working to help resettle undocumented migrants and refugees in the U.S. are evidence of “Satan controlling the church.”
“The church is not doing its job, and it’s not adhering to the teachings of Christ,” Greene said.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue responded to Greene’s comments in a statement.
“She had plenty of opportunities to make rational criticisms of the agency, but instead she slandered the entire Catholic Church,” Donohue said.
“Satan is controlling the Catholic Church? She needs to apologize to Catholics immediately. She is a disgrace.”
Greene addressed Donohue’s statement, saying she was referring to church leadership and not the church as a whole.
“I refuse to use kinder, gentler language as Bill Donohue might prefer when I talk about his disgusting and corrupt friends, who have made him rich with the donations from ordinary churchgoing Catholics,” Greene said.
