The Vatican's Lawyers Go After Benetton Over Kissing Pope Ad

Filed under: Legal MattersAd Campaigns

Well that certainly didn't take long!

The Vatican is raising hell over Benetton's new UNHATE Foundation campaign, specifically the ad that shows Pope Benedict kissing Imam Ahmed Mohamed el-Tayeb.

On Thursday the Vatican released a statement saying their lawyers in Italy and around the world will "take the proper legal measures" to stop the distribution of the unauthorized photo, even in the media.

The statement adds:

"This is a grave lack of respect for the pope, an offense against the sentiments of the faithful and a clear example of how advertising can violate elementary rules of respect for people in order to attract attention through provocation."

Benetton has since removed the ad from their website and issued their own statement and apologized to those who were offended.

Thoughts???

Pope Anti Gay Messages

The Pope is calling for unity against same sex marriage, even from different religions. Because, you know, that's the most important fight for them right now — the unity between two people who love each other, which has no effect on anyone outside of their relationship.

Here's what the Pope said in Germany:

The Pope Says "Be Yourself" On The Internet

Filed under: Media Minute

pope says be yourself online

Pope Benedict XVI loves us just the way we are as long as we have Christian names.

In a statement released by the Vatican today, the Pope "advised people to avoid giving 'in to the illusion of constructing an artificial public persona for oneself.' "

Here's what the Pope had to say in his statement:

The task of witnessing to the Gospel in the digital era calls for everyone to be particularly attentive to the aspects of that message which can challenge some of the ways of thinking typical of the web. First of all, we must be aware that the truth which we long to share does not derive its worth from its "popularity" or from the amount of attention it receives. We must make it known in its integrity, instead of seeking to make it acceptable or diluting it. It must become daily nourishment and not a fleeting attraction.

We agree with what the Pope is saying to an extent. Certainly, people shouldn't consume themselves with being popular online, and they shouldn't allow themselves to lose a sense of reality by spending ALL their time on the Internet.

As long as nobody is being hurt by it though, we don't see a major issue with adopting an online persona.

Everything in moderation.

What do U think about the Pope's Internet statement?

The Pope Vs. People Without Christian Names

pope only likes christian names

Looks like Catholic folks will have to go more traditional if they want to remain in The Pope's good graces.

After baptizing twenty-one children at the Vatican on Sunday, The Pope stated that new members of "the faith" will need Christian names.

Nowadays, the most popular names that Italians give their children are saints' names - Francesco (Francis) is the top choice for boys, and Giulia (Julia) is the #1 pick for girls.

…Guess The Pope would probs NOT be overly enthusiastic with Brangelina's childrens' names. LOLs.

Would the Pope approve of your name?
