Concerned Women are Concerned!

The Concerned Women of America are downright concerned. Yet again. In particular, they take umbrage with this recent ad for this weekend's Folsom Street Fair, which is a parody of The Last Supper.

"In their version of The Last Supper, Christ, Who gave His life for our sins, is despicably replaced by sin itself as the object of worship," a CWA spokesman bemoans. What's worse, there's a black man sitting in as Jesus! Such an affront to good Christians everywhere cannot be allowed to continue. A black Jesus!

Ok, for the record, yes, I think the ad is of questionable taste. I have plenty of disagreements with organized religion, but I have to admit that this is a couple of steps beyond Kathy Griffin's "Suck it, Jesus!" speech. Personally, while I think the ad is clever, I do question the wisdom of giving the religious community more ammunition against us. We're asking for the public at large to respect us and our relationships -- we have to be willing to show some respect in return. That said, some of the guys in that ad are WAY HOT.
