The Nicki Minaj of Catholicism

"Nicki Minaj’s Grammys performance—which seemed calculated to an absurd degree to offend self-important Catholic leaders who have a tendency to issue hyperbolic condemnations of trendy pop culture, thus engendering free press in the form of a contrived “controversy”—has succeeded in offending the Catholic League’s Bill Donohue, whose frequent grandstanding, irksome delivery, and sheer prolificacy basically makes him the Nicki Minaj of Catholicism. Not surprisingly, Donohue had several problems with the performance that was created explicitly so that people like Bill Donohue would have problems with it."
