Say you are a God-fearing Christian, not puritanical but also not one to take blasphemy lightly. How would you feel about a gay festival promotion that depicts leather-clad men as Jesus and the Apostles partaking of the Last Supper?
I would find it ridiculous, but I wouldn’t get all worked up over it. I can’t speak for other Christians, though, who use some pretty loaded language in attacking the ad, which some liken to cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad.
On September 30, a Sunday â the Lordâs Day in the Christian church â San Francisco will host the Folsom Street Fair, perhaps the most hedonistic event held in public in America. The fair is the San Francisco homosexual communityâs annual celebration of promiscuity, sadomasochism and debauchery. The ad for this yearâs fair mocks Da Vinciâs The Last Supper, with a half-naked beefcake Christ and disciples bedecked in all manner of leather and chains. The bread and wine of The Last Supper are replaced with sex toys.
”Senator Larry Craig was arrested and driven out of the Senate for allegedly soliciting public ‘gay’ sex, yet during this event the city of San Francisco suspends the law and allows ‘gay’ men and women to parade the streets fully nude, many having sex â even group orgies â in broad daylight, while taxpayer-funded police officers look on and do absolutely nothing,” (said Concerned Women for America policy director Matt Barber).
Barber encouraged mainstream media to cover the event with cameras in hand.
“There’s an unbelievable news story here,” he said. “The Folsom Street Fair is reminiscent of biblical Sodom and Gomorrah, and the media should document exactly what the city of San Francisco is allowing to occur â in public â in the name of ‘tolerance.’”
