Sometimes I feel sorry for the Christians, because it must be hard to be so constantly offended, so continuously assaulted by heathen images, occult jewelry, and gender-blurring Teletubbies. Every time they leave their homes they are attacked by wanton gimcrackery, and inside their homes? There it's even scarier as the devil's ejaculate (television) conspires to make things unbearable:
In a far cry from the old "Doublemint Twins" ads, Wrigley is now airing a television ad for Eclipse "Fusion" gum featuring two females who appear to express a romantic interest in each other after one of them tries the gum. The ad has offended conservatives and prompted at least one Christian media watchdog group to action.
The furor over the commercial has resulted in the American Decency Association urging Christians not to buy Fusion or any other Wrigley's product. ADA president Bill Johnson says the ad shows that the company is more concerned about appealing to the homosexual community than it is offending millions of Bible-believing Christians.
"It has strong sexual allusions and ultimately leads to a clear picture that is demonstrating lesbianism," contends the family advocate.
Johnson says when Wrigley chooses to use what he describes as "blatant advertisement lifting up lesbianism" that goes "so strongly against the standard of God," it is sending a clear message to believers that their business is really no longer desired.
"We desire to pursue holiness," he says, "and that includes the choices in how we spend our money."
Johnson recommends that Christians stop buying Wrigley's products and contact company president and CEO William Perez to lodge a complaint over the Fusion commercial.
I don't know about you, but I'm tremendously relieved to know that the American Decency Association is there to help avert the menace of lesbo chewing gum.
