Bill Donohue Blows a Gasket Over Mindy Kaling's Show

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.

    He’s not mad at the anal sex. He’s mad they only implied it. I mean, come on! This is America! I didn’t fight and die in two World Wars just to come home and have to use my imagination!

  • robertrichter

    That charge is simply untrue: Hollywood spends a *lot* of time promoting binge drinking.

  • moarscienceplz

    We don’t need Hollywood to promote binge drinking. We have the NFL for that.

    If he has a pulse, no.

    Anal sex is only lethal when homophobes use bats and batons to stop others from making them think about their own emotions. And if Hollywood is over run with homosexual writers why are all sitcoms about straight couples?

    That’s because of the large number of homosexual writers who work there.

    Um … then why wasn’t Mindy in bed with a woman or Danny in bed with a man?

  • edmundog

    What he’s actually upset about, for those that don’t watch the show, is that Danny is portrayed as a devout Catholic who still a gates in premarital sex and loves his gay brother. They make the occasional joke about it. “Every time we shower together, he makes a donation to the Vatican.” And if there’s one thing Bill can’t stand, it’s laughing, happy Catholics.

  • edmundog

    Ooh, wait, clicked the link. He does go into it a little…

    ———————————

    Mindy: “Okay, so you’re innocent? You had no intent?”

    Danny: “Of course no intent. I’m Catholic. Even if I think about that…”

    Mindy: “They promote you to Cardinal?”

    Danny: “Hey! Hey! That is all over. It’s over. Pope Frank is on the case. Can we please just go talk about this in your office, please?”

    Mindy: “I don’t know, Danny, because my office only has one entrance and I don’t know if that’s enough for you anymore.”

    ——————————–

    Aww, no wonder he’s so upset.

    I think you all misunderstand the guy. His main problem is *not* the promotion of gay (or not) butsex. I think he rather criticises the lacking promotion of the good Catholic tradition* of binge drinking by Hollywood!

    Mr Donohue must be a virgin. If not he must have only had sex in the missionary postition with the lights off, no sounds being made and no foreplay. Can’t he realize that some heterosexual couples engage in sexual activity other than vaginal intercourse.

    It goes beyond realize, he can”t even imagine it.

    Given the context this is frickin’ hilarious. It compete with the popular exclamation that gays are trying to ram shit down conservative Christian throats.

    Anal Sex is potentially lethal?

    No. Vaginal sex is lethal. If you have unprotected vaginal sex the product of that WILL DIE. In every single case, successful unprotected vaginal sex leads to a series of events that has a 100% mortality rate.

  • Randomfactor

    It goes beyond realize, he can”t even imagine it.

    I think the problem is more that he can’t STOP imagining it. He’s way more obsessed with anal sex than those who actually do it from time to time.

    Just because Donahue didn’t like it doesn’t mean that the rest of us can’t safely enjoy anal play. He just needs to relax.

    Avicenna:

    Well, in fairness, everyone who has anal sex will die, too. Oddly, so will everyone who is celibate.

    Moaning and groaning followed by:

    Mindy: “Oh my God, Danny, this is heaven. Wait! Danny, Danny, that doesn’t go there!”

    Danny: “I slipped!”

    This is like the story about the guy as a bus stop humming a tune when a woman starts beating him with her hand bag. Police roll up and question the woman as to why she was thrashing the man for humming a tune she explained that she knew the words.

    An accidental attempt at anal sex is in no way implied by the scene. For all we know he could have been giving a scalp massage and a finger slipped into her ear. It is only the assumptions we take as context of the the scene that suggest anal sex. If Bill Donohue was more of an innocent he wouldn’t have made those assumptions. It is the dirt he brings with him that makes the scene objectionable to him.

    Of course anal sex is not new or, engaged in by consenting adults, preferably practicing safe sex, particularly unusual or objectionable. It is one of many options.
