The scene is at 3:40:

Donohue: “We don’t want to have the Klan out there on Martin Luther King Day with their monuments right next to a bust of Martin Luther King. We don’t want to have neo-Nazis out there to stick it to Jews on Yom Kippur. And we shouldn’t have people out there ready to trash Christianity, given that proximity.”

A merry season to you too, Bill.

    The irony I took away from it is that both the examples he used were of groups who oppressed and killed the group whose day he mentioned, but Christians used to oppress and kill atheists.
