LOS ANGELES – Catholics are up in arms over a new PETA ad that features a naked model covered by a cross!
PETA is well known for its risque ads, often featuring barely clad celebrities stating they’d rather go nude than wear fur.
In its new print ad, model and Dancing with the Stars contestant Joanna Krupa participated to promote adopting animals from shelters. However, the setting has outraged Catholics for its use of Christian symbols.
Krupa is floating on wings in a church, completely naked except for a strategically placed cross!

Catholic League President Bill Donohue issued a statement:
“The fact is that cats and dogs are a lot safer in pet stores than they are in the hands of PETA employees. Moreover, pet stores don’t rip off Christian iconography and engage in cheap irreligious claims. PETA is a fraud. It also has a long and disgraceful record of exploiting Christian and Jewish themes to hawk its ugly services. Those who support this organization sorely need a reality check. They also need a course in Ethics 101.”
In return, Krupa said, As a practicing Catholic, “I am shocked that the Catholic League is speaking out against my PETA ads. I’m doing what the Catholic Church should be doing, working to stop senseless suffering of animals, the most defenseless of God’s creation.”

  1. I see it as just plain offensive. If I had small children..I would absolutely not want them to see such a ridiculous ad. It is of no consequence as to whether the model is beautiful or not. It is just outrageous in my opinion. I don't see it as even a religious affront.. I just see it as a blow to one's sense of morality, and again…just plain offensive.

  2. Ok seriously there is nothing wrong with this ad. I am myself a practicing Catholic and I have no issues with this ad. If you don't like it then don't look at it. In advertisement these days you need to shock and awe consumers. She did exactly that. Catholics should be happy, especially Mr. Donohue, because thanks to this ad Catholicism and Christianity are getting more attention from different sources. All press is good press.

  3. It doesn't matter it is just a ad showing that people care for animals it isnt offensive as it isnt saying that christianity is rude or hates animals it is just saying and making a valid point God loves ALL LIVING CREATURES and no one person should decide if it is or isnt offensive as no one person can speak for christianity except mainly fo god and since he himself has not yet said it is offensive no one else should

  4. What is worse: animals being beaten do death, being skinned alive, being left by the side of the road or a naked woman with a crucifix, clearly refering to the "be an angel", meaning "be a good person"? This ad does draw the attention (as is proven by all the media attention it has gotten), and if that can get some people to adopt a dog instead of bying one those specially bred doggies, they love to put in a pink sweater, I think this women did a great thing!

  5. Anyone who thinks this ad is offensive needs to come back to reality and give up their fantasy people floating in the sky. All that catholic mythology stuff is just nonsense!
    Death, torture, suffering of animals is REAL. Grow up you silly babies. Or do us rational people a favour and kill yourselves; go join your fantasy cloud people and leave this world better off; without you.
