Concerned Women for America has called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Governor Schwarzenegger and Senators Feinstein and Boxer to publicly condemn an ad for the upcoming Folsom Street Fair (site NSFW) in San Francisco. The annual leather fetish streetfest has produced a poster advertising the event which is a depiction of The Last Supper attended by leather devotees and a Sister of Perpetual Indulgence. Sex toys take the place of bread and wine in the parody.
Calling the event “reminiscent of Biblical Sodom and Gomorrah,” Matt Barber, Policy Director for Cultural Issues with CWA, says, “We further challenge the media to cover this affront to Christianity with the same vigor as recent stories about cartoon depictions of Mohammed and other items offensive to the Muslim community. What’s equally shocking and offensive is the fact that California taxpayers are forced to help foot the bill for the Folsom Street Fair. The City of San Francisco sanctions the event, shuts down several city blocks and provides police for security.”
If you recall, CWA was the group that went after Starbucks for placing an Armistead Maupin quote on one of their coffee cups which read, “My only regret about being gay is that I repressed it so long. I surrendered my youth to the people I feared when I could have been out there loving someone. Don’t make that mistake yourself. Life’s too damn short.”
