Why is Bill Donohue Defending +Finn?

Check out the video of last week's episode of "The World Over" with Raymond Arroyo. At minute 44:00, he begins an interview with Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League. Among other subjects, Donohue discusses the situation of Bishop Robert Finn and accuses NCR, among others, of leading the charge against Bishop Finn because he is an orthodox bishop. Actually, as far as I can tell, most of us at NCR are concerned about Bp Finn because he has been a disaster as a bishop and, specifically, violated the bishops' own norms for dealing with clergy sex abuse. But, my question is this: Why is Donohue so intent on defending Bp Finn?
