Following outcry by Vatican officials, Benetton pulls ad showing Catholic pope in amorous embrace with Al-Azhar’s grand sheikh.
Italian clothing manufacturer Benetton has withdrawn an advertisement depicting Catholic Pope Benedict XVI kissing Egypt’s Al-Azhar Grand Sheikh Ahmed El-Tayeb after the doctored photo caused an outcry among Vatican officials.
The photo montage was initially released by Benetton as part of its “Unhate Project,” which was launched on Wednesday and featured different versions of political adversaries passionately kissing one another on the lips.

Benetton have touched a tabu in the Roman Catholic Church. All Catholics knows that multitudes of their priests are homosexual offenders. But living in spiritual bondage to the Papacy, few of them is capable of doing anything about it.
If the Italian textile major wants to print a true picture of a kissing Pope, they can chose John Paul II kissing the Koran.
The Vatican acknowledge that the Muslims are a “Holy people”, and that the Koran is a “Holy book”. If you are gay and kiss the Koran, you will obviously not resist kissing an Imam. If there was a golden opportunity.
They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Men who sleep with men, or women who lust after the same sex, are homosexual offenders. If they do not repent, they will spend eternity out of bed, but inside the eternal flames of Hell.
