Everybody's a Nazi.

Even Penn & Teller. Catholics everywhere, including Bill Donohue, President of the Catholic League, are balking at the August 27 CBS special. John-Henry Westen at lifesitenews, writes that the show :

libeled the Catholic Church with impunity, blaming the Church for, as Donohue put it, "every evil in history." Show host Jillette said the "intolerance, greed, paranoia, hypocrisy and callous disregard for human suffering" was the hallmark of the Catholic Church. Others on the show branded the Church as an "amoral" and "power hungry" institution that is just worried about its "cash flow."

Pretty hard to argue with that, really. And yet, many still mistake criticism of the Catholic Church for criticism of Catholics, just as criticism of the Israeli government is often mistaken for anti-semiticism.

Which is why Donohue's quote is so creepy: "Penn & Teller's Nazi-like assault on Catholicism that took place on August 27 will go down in history as one of the most vile, obscene programs ever aired in any nation. That CBS, which owns Showtime, allows this to go on is positively unbelievable."

So why did the Catholic League post the video on their website? Beats me, but I advise you be cautious when you watch; doing so may make you a Nazi too.
