The Pope is said to be outraged at a new Benetton advert. It is a shame that he is not as outraged by child abuse.
A new advertising campaign by Benetton has caused outrage in the Vatican. Benetton has produced a series of posters that depict world leaders kissing each other on lips. The picture in question depicts the former Nazi pope kissing a prominent Muslim cleric.
I must admit that I found some of them quite amusing, yet upon seeing them it was easily predictable that the usual suspects would find something offensive about them, and start banging on about the Ten Commandments.
Fine, I am sure many people will say that they are in poor taste. The answer to that is simple, do not look at them and do not buy from Benetton.
A senior Vatican spokesman has called the posters unauthorised and manipulative, and that they may even take legal action against Benetton. He went on to say that the poster is a grave lack of respect for the pop, and an offence against the sentiments of the faithful. It’s a shame that the gangsters at the Vatican do not share the same views on the institutional child abuse scheme that they have run for decades, or the raping and pillaging of the globe for the last 2000 years that they have participated in. It’s a shame that they do not feel outraged at the gold and marble decorated building in the Vatican or the billions they have stashed away, whilst most of their flock throughout the world are dying, starving, or living without a pot to piss in. Their hypocrisy stinks!
Benetton will thank the Vatican for giving more coverage to their advertising campaigns than they have had in over twenty years.
