    I'm Catholic and I don't find the ad offensive at all. What the hell is the big deal? People get so uptight over the stupidest shit.

    Let's apply the Muhammad test.

    What if the commercial showed Muhammed serving pork ribs at a tailgate party?

    I'm Catholic and I have no problem with the ad. I doubt that very many Catholics would.

    Just because some Catholics don't find it offensive, doesn't trump the Church from doing so.

    If the Eucharist tasted like Doritos I might not be a not practicing Catholic.

    You're lapsed? :eek: I shall pary for you.

    And... I will write to the Pope and suggest that he swap the Eucharist for Doritos... That would work for me! Or chocolate. I'm open to be persuaded to either.

    Why does the Eucharist have to taste like shit anyway? When I made my first communion, the nuns threatened us that we better not make a face when the priest placed it on our tongue.

    Let's never use that test again.

    If we have to judge appropriateness based on what the most over-sensitive people find offensive, EVERYTHING would be inappropriate.

    Besides I'm not sure most American Muslims were offended by those drawing (this is an ad that presumably will be shown mostly in the U.S.)
