Catholics cross again at misuse of symbols

krupaRanting Catholic loon Bill Dohohue has been complaining about the latest Christmas ad from PETA. It features a nude Joanna Krupa as an angel carrying a strategically placed cross, hovering over a pack of cute looking dogs in what appears to be a church.

The ad is part of the PETA campaign to encourage prospective pet owners to adopt homeless animals, rather than buy from a shop or a breeder.

The Catholic League are fuming. Donohue accuses PETA of exploiting Christian iconography and states,

Those who support this organization sorely need a reality check. They also need a course in Ethics 101.

Without a trace of irony!

Krupa fired back,

As a practicing Catholic, I am shocked that the Catholic League is speaking out against my PETA ads, which I am very proud of. I’m doing what the Catholic Church should be doing, working to stop senseless suffering of animals, the most defenseless of god’s creation.

    She is an absolutely beautiful angel isn’t she?

    As for Donohue, a reality check and a course in ethics? Is he serious?

    Talking animals, magic food, dead people coming back to life, levitation, angels, demons, giants and dragons, Some guy who manages to be dead for three days between Friday afternoon and Sunday morning?

    As for ethics.
    Crusades, inquisitions, witch hunts, child abuse, misinformation about AIDS, the Catholic Church knows less about ethics than my cat.
