Selectism has more of the images.

The campaigns were unfurled in Milan and Rome, respectively. Another featured French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German chancellor Angela Merkel.

    This is really stupid, like really stupid and uncomfortable. Not because the guys are kissing, but because the kisses look really really awkward.

    Like cringe inducing.

    This is not stupid at all. It’s poignant and wonderful and will only be confusing, or cause grief, to homophobes and those only who are only capable of seeing something literally.

    It’s a total steal of a famous Berlin Wall painting of Brezhnev and former E. German leader Honecker in a lip lock. Not horribly original.

    Wait, the Pope, Benedict, is that the one? He’s offended? I’m offended he was a Nazi collaborator during the 2nd World War!

  5. Sister Virilene says

    The Nazipope Ratzinger has directed the vatican lawyers to sue Benneton for offending catholics. The ex-Nazi asserts his own right to slander gays and lesbians, and preaches violence, hatred, and intolerance against them in the name of religious liberty. But then he opposes artistic freedom of those preaching against hate.

    He defends bigotry by opposing artistic expression.

    As Catholics, we should pray daily for his speedy demise.

    Joseph Ratzinger can be rightly condemned for much of what he says and does. Like his homophobia or his anti condom comments which increases the likelihood that many more people will suffer or die from the AIDS epidemic. But to accuse him of being a NAZI collaborator is nuts. Ratzinger was 7 years old when Hitler came to power in 1933. During the war years 1939-1945 he was a teenager. He was a member of the Hitler Youth. It was mandatory in the Nazi dictatorship.
