KUDOS TO HILLARY CLINTON: BUSH SHOULD BOYCOTT OLYMPIC OPENING
April 7, 2008
Catholic League president Bill Donohue backed Senator Hillary Clinton’s plea to President Bush not to attend the Olympics opening ceremony:
“It is one thing to call for a boycott of the Olympic games—too many innocent athletes would be punished—but it is quite proper to use the symbolic importance of the opening ceremony to drive home a much-needed message: China can’t pretend to be religion friendly while routinely censoring religious liberty. Senator Clinton gets it just right when she urges President Bush to boycott the opening ceremony, saying ‘Americans will stand strong in support of freedom of religion and political expression and human rights.’

The Clinton campaign’s religious outreach director just emailed the release around. For Clinton, Pennsylvania Catholics are the most important people in the world right now.
