I can’t think what the Vatican was thinking when they made Benetton pull this:

Perhaps the Pope hadn’t read the word in the top left-hand corner?

Perhaps the Pope has forgotten Paul’s instructions in 1 Corinthians 16:20, “Greet one another with a holy kiss”?

Perhaps the Pope is so sure of his white mitre that he believes God would have him hate Ahmed Mohamed el-Tayeb?

Dear Pope,

In the wise words of Peter Gabriel, “and the eyes of the world are watching now, watching now”.


The World

One response to “Unhate

  1. Personally I can’t imagine what Benetton was thinking when they came up with it! Talk about mixed messages. As for the Vatican, I don’t think they differentiate, just don’t do commercial “endorsements”.
