WASHINGTON, August 12, 2004 ( – The Catholics for Kerry 04 website has been blasted by the Catholic League for referring to President George W. Bush as the Antichrist.  Under the heading “President Bush?”, the website says “Antichrist?” and links to comments by Wayne Madsden, who says,  “George W. Bush’s blood lust, his repeated commitment to Christian beliefs and his constant references to ‘evil doers,’ in the eyes of many devout Catholic leaders, bear all the hallmarks of the one warned about in the Book of Revelations-the anti-Christ.”  Catholic League president William Donohue blasted the website saying, “This is the language of a demagogue, and it has no legitimate role to play in presidential politics.”  The Catholics for Kerry 04 website defended the controversial statement and link from its site.  In a rebuttal to Donohue, the website’s managers said, “It is simply a point of view we considered important for Catholics to be aware of.”  Donohue remarked, “It is important to note that it is not the position of the Catholic League that the Kerry camp should be held responsible for this group of wacko Catholics.  But at the same time, it shows how hypocritical the operatives in the Kerry camp really are.”  Donohue pointed out that since a Kerry official has asked Bush to ‘condemn’ the book ‘Unfit for Command’, a book about John Kerry’s alleged fraudulent behavior in Vietnam, by the same logic, Kerry should condemn the Catholics for Kerry website.  “Indeed, this Catholic-Kerry website provides a direct link to ‘Contribute to Kerry Online,’ the official donation section of the Kerry-Edwards website,” noted Donohue.  See the Catholics for Kerry 04 website:  jhw
