NFL Asked To Drop Madonna – OpEd

The following letter was sent today in the overnight mail:

October 11, 2011

Mr. Roger Goodell
Commissioner
National Football League
280 Park Avenue, 15th floor
New York, New York 10017

Dear Mr. Goodell:

Last week, I issued a news release on reports that the NFL was weighing a decision to invite Madonna to perform at the 2012 Super Bowl. As you can see from the enclosed statement [the news release from 10/4], if this were to happen, Christians (especially Catholics) would have every reason to complain. It would not only expose a double standard—it would be seen as a slap in their face. And from the response we have garnered, it seems plain that many would be offended.

I implore you to find an entertainer who does not have a record of disrespecting Christian sensibilities. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

William Donohue, Ph.D.
President

William Donohue is the current president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights in the United States, and has held that position since 1993.

    William Donohue, Ph.D needs to quit his job! He obviously doesn’t have a clue about Music.

    Madonna is the worlds biggest selling female artist of all time. He needs his head checkin’ Madonna has held on to the worlds biggest tour for female artist and yet William Donohue, Ph.D, can’t see this! I’m a Christian and Madonna has never offended me.

    It’s small minded idiots like you William Donohue that come up with stupid ideas it wouldn’t be a slap in the face at all.

    It would be that you would have the best thing on there

    WHAT A IDOT

    William Donohue, Ph.D. YOU NEED TO QUIT & WAKE UP TO THE REAL WORLD! LOL
