Catholic League

I had a quick question: Does anyone know if the Catholic Church gives any sort of support for the Catholic League?

I ask only because I have been on the League's website quite a few times, and I have found that the president, William Donohue clearly has issues with almost everything in today's culture. I have found that he seems to make quite some outrageous remarks, even hateful.

He called the priest sex abuse scandal a homosexual scandal, not a pedophilia scandal. (C'mon) And, he has criticized shows, people, etc that I like, ex: The show South Park, comedienne Kathy Griffin, the film "Dogma," even the song "One of Us" by Joan Osborne.

I mean, yes, sometimes I feel that there is some prejudice against Catholics, but I feel that's out of misinformation and ignorance. But I feel with this guy raging about this and that, people will have a more negative opinion of Catholics and the Church in general.
