Catholic League wants writer fired for ‘bigotry’ in column

LOS ANGELES – Not long after Creators Syndicate writer Jamie Stiehm’s article “The Catholic Supreme Court’s War on Women” made its way onto the homepage of U.S. News and World Report this week, many upset Catholics were voicing their anger, and even calling for her to be fired.

“This is a throwback to the most anti-Catholic vitriol of the 19th century. Creators Syndicate should drop Stiehm immediately,” said Bill Donohue, founder of the Catholic League – America’s largest Catholic advocacy organization.

Donohue told FOX411 that he has written an open letter to Creators Syndicate and intends to draw attention to a video in which he will discuss his objections.

“I am pulling out all the stops because this is the most outrageous piece of vintage anti-Catholic bigotry – from top to bottom – that I have probably seen from any serious media source,” Donohue said. “If this is acceptable, then anything goes.

“We are asking Catholics, and everyone else, to email David Yontz, the managing editor at Creators Syndicate – asking him to drop Stiehm from their list.”
