Organizers of San Francisco's Folsom Street Fair -- sponsored by Miller Brewing Co. -- have come up with a bizarre and offensive poster to promote the self-described “world’s largest leather event”. The poster depicts Christ and His disciples as leather clad homosexual sadomasochists and instead of sharing bread and wine they are shown with a table full of sex toys.
"A picture's worth a thousand words," said Matt Barber, Policy Director for Cultural Issues with Concerned Women for America (CWA). “As evidenced by this latest stunt, open ridicule of Christianity is unfortunately very common within much of the homosexual community.”
Barber also pointed out the hypocrisy of the "'Gay' activists [who] disingenuously call Christians 'haters' and 'homophobes' for honoring the Bible, but then lash out in this hateful manner toward the very people they accuse.”
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.
According to their press release, CWA is calling on California politicians -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sens. Feinstein and Boxer -- to "publicly condemn this unprovoked attack against Christ and His followers.
"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," CWA said.
Concerned Women for America also points out that California taxpayers are forced to help pay for the event because the City of San Francisco shuts down several city blocks and provides police for security.
The Folsom Street Fair describes itself as "the world's largest leather event."
"We hope to see the fairgrounds filled with people in their most outrageous leather/rubber/fetish attire enjoying the worlds largest and best loved Leather fair," the event’s website says.
