I‘ve never seen The Mindy Project, though I know who Mindy Kaling is. The fact that she has the ability to send Bill Donohue of the Catholic League into a frenzy over a comical sex scene almost makes me want to watch the show. I’ll let him explain what has him so upset:
Last night’s episode of “The Mindy Project,” a Fox show, opened with an implied sex scene involving Dr. Mindy Lahiri (played by Mindy Kaling) and Danny Castellano (played by Chris Messina); it was titled, “I Slipped!” The room is dark and there is moaning. Here is how the script unfurls:
Mindy: “Oh my God, Danny, this is heaven. Wait! Danny, Danny, that doesn’t go there!”
Danny: “I slipped!”
After the title sequence, the two characters are shown in an office arguing about the sexual encounter from the night before. Mindy is upset with what Danny did. Danny insists it was a mistake. It is implied that Danny attempted anal sex…Bill Donohue offers his thoughts on this episode:
Binge drinking, like anal sex, is potentially lethal, but Hollywood only has an interest in promoting the latter. That’s because of the large number of homosexual writers who work there. Catholics would appreciate it, however, if they would keep their dark secrets in the closet, where they belong.
Yeah, they should do what the Catholic Church has done for centuries, keep it in the closet, hidden away from the world where no one can see it so the child victims exist only in a realm of shame and guilt. It’s worked out so well for them.
