A Petition Against Blasphemy

Pepsi and Doritos will be offering five million dollars to the person who submits the winning commercial for the 2011 Super Bowl. All submissions are reviewed and ten finalists will be selected on January 3. Then the voting is open to the public on USA Today Ad Meter. (mwbh reviews the most popular Super Bowl commercials every year, including those noted by USA Today).

A terribly blasphemous commercial was submitted. It is called “Feed the Flock,” and shows a parish where attendance is dropping. The priest decides to distribute Doritos and Pepsi as Holy Communion to bring in the people. Then weird looking people show up to receive the Holy Eucharist, which is really Pepsi and Doritos!

This mockery of the Body and Blood of Christ is outrageous and unacceptable! Sign this petition to stop this blasphemous commercial to Pepsi and Doritos. It is important to send it today because Pepsi will approve the winners on January 3.

The commercial is on Facebook as "Feed your flock." (CONTENT ADVISORY: Potentially offensive to any Catholic with a pulse.) To sign a petition to stop it, click here. You could remind them that they wouldn't dare treat Muslims this way, but that might be a little over the top. Then again ...

Catholics are 24 percent of the American population. For this to go by unchallenged would be equally outrageous. Please offer prayers and sacrifices in reparation for this horrific blasphemy.

And sign the damn petition already!

I am all for humor and fun but this is neither! This is not only blasphemous and in bad taste, but is totally unChristian. It is sad when in a Christian country, it is politically correct to blaspheme Christianity yet not ok to target politically correct world religions. Personally, I find humor never entertaining when it attacks a person's faith beliefs.
