    June 19, on KPFA’s Tom & Tim Show, KPFA had no problem spotlighting The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a group that mocks Catholic nuns and hosts the annual Hunky Jesus contest in a San Francisco public park which ridicules the crucifixtion so it appears while KPFA doesn’t like Islamophobia, it certainly has no problem with Catholicophobia. SHAME on KPFA. Let Dawkins speak!
