Miller’s tale

Catholics in the States now want a boycott of the brewers Miller, who have shockingly allowed their logo to appear on publicity material for the Folsom Street Fair – a huge gay festival in San Francisco (see our previous story).

According to today’s Pink News pages, “Bill Donaghue, president of the Catholic League For Religious and Civil Rights, called for the boycott of Miller on US breakfast show Fox and Friends this morning.”

Donaghue said the the fair is “an incredibly outrageous and palpably anti-Christian event” after the Sisters of Perpetual of Indulgence, one of several organisations receiving funding from the fair, spoofed Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper in publicity material.

Unfortunately, Miller have caved in. They said: “We understand some individuals may find the imagery offensive and we have asked the organisers to remove our logo from the poster, effective immediately.”

    That’s corporate America for you. If a few of the big players grew some stones, these fuckwits wouldn’t get their way. That’s how bullies have always been.
