The Catholic Church Calls Out PETA, Joanna Krupa

by at . Comments

Thank you, Catholic Church!

For months, The Hollywood Gossip has been calling out PETA for its attention-seeking tactics; the charity clearly cares more about making headlines with racy ads than actually saving animals.

Now, we've got the backing of over one billion people, as the Catholic League has taken issue with PETA's latest, ridiculous poster: a shot of Joanna Krupa naked, covering herself with a cross.

Wrote Catholic League President Bill Donohue in a statement:

"The fact is that cats and dogs are a lot safer in pet stores than they are in the hands of PETA employees. Moreover, pet stores don't rip off Christian iconography and engage in cheap irreligious claims.

"PETA is a fraud. It also has a long and disgraceful record of exploiting Christian and Jewish themes to hawk its ugly services. Those who support this organization sorely need a reality check. They also need a course in Ethics 101."

Nude for PETA

Responded Krupa:

"As a practicing Catholic, I am shocked that the Catholic League is speaking out against my PETA ads. I'm doing what the Catholic Church should be doing, working to stop senseless suffering of animals, the most defenseless of God's creation."

That's dandy, Joanna. But can you explain how posing nude, with a crucifix covering your private parts, is remotely related to that cause? No way it's to hype your upcoming Playboy pictorial, right?

"I think worrying about going topless in a photo shoot or film is really ridiculous," Krupa said to Fox News. "And the fact is, Pope John Paul said, since we were born naked, it is art, and it's just showing a beautiful body that God created."

Somewhere, Levi Johnston is nodding in agreement.

Whose side are you on in this feud?


WOW... and here I was thinking there was no trademark and such on the symbol of a CROSS, at least that is what the church is making me think, and of course they are WRONG. EVERYBODY can use the symbol of a CROSS, in their busines logo, advertizements etc. ¿whats next? The church going to my house to see if I use it correctly.. hahaha good luck. On the other hand, forgetting the use of the Cross pre-christ (YES! it was used BEFORE), the cross represents the Death of Jesus on the cross.. Now it seems very FAIR that others use that as a metaphore for the poor treatment or deaht of "god´s living creatures".. what´s the problem.. besides WHO knows what KRUPA is wearing underneath.. Maybe the CHURCH should fix their own problems rather then focusing on and putting a negative spin on something GOOD in the world.. I believe they have enough internal issues to resolve.


No matter who you side with, humanity loses.


I agree that yes, maybe displaying the poster like this was a little bit unnecessary and a bit much, but honestly, I don't care. I'm siding with PETA. The point of the posters is to get people's attention to the cruilty of animals. Some people know, a lot don't and some just don't care.
These posters get the attention of a buyers to read up on PETA and urge people find out about what is happening to cats and dogs and what PETA does for them and what YOU could do to help. It may be a bit much, but it got the job done, and perhaps the word will get out more and maybe instead of bitching about the poster itself, people will be a little more concered about animal cruilty instead of our a company is advertised.


Krupa says the Catholic Church should stop the suffering of the "most defenseless of God's creation", yet she fails to mention the millions of unborn babies who are aborted every year, and they are God's creation too, and they are created in the image and likeness of God, something we can't say about dogs and cats. Talk about defenseless!


She's gross. I bet this pose is another one of her great business decisions as she claims her Playboy poses to be. Or her empowerment of being a woman. What a crock.
