Catholic League Promises To "Mobilize" Religious Groups Against Jon Stewart

A bit about a "vagina manger" offends. "We will not stop with a boycott," the League's president writes.

Posted on April 18, 2012, at 1:01 p.m. ET

A segment of The Daily Show skewering the media fervor over the "war on women" that recommended that women use "vagina mangers" to protect themselves has come under fire from the Catholic League, who have promised to boycott the show. The organization also alleges that the media is guilty of a cover-up for not highlighting the "vagina manger" bit.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue is quoted in a release:

The cover-up is revealing. This episode of “The Daily Show” was done to protest Fox’s alleged indifference to the “war on women,” and in doing so Stewart not only made a vulgar attack on Christians, he objectified women.
We are asking Stewart to apologize. If he does not, we will mobilize Protestants, Jews, Mormons and Muslims to join us in a boycott of his sponsors. Moreover, we will not stop with a boycott; there are other things that can be done to register our outrage. We are prepared to spend the money it takes to make this a nationwide issue, and we are prepared to stay the course. Tomorrow we will have something definitive to say, one way or the other.

A Comedy Central spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
