What DO the Democrats Mind?

Pelosi: Sadomasochistic Last Supper Ad Doesn't 'Harm' Christianity
By Nathan Burchfiel

A controversial advertisement for a San Francisco festival that depicts the Last Supper as a sadomasochism party falls within the First Amendment and is not harmful to Christianity, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday.

The ad for the Folsom Street Fair - to be held in Pelosi's district on Sunday and which is partly funded by San Francisco's Grants for the Arts program, which is funded by the city's hotel tax - sparked outrage from Christian groups because it mirrors Leonardo Da Vinci's famous painting of "The Last Supper" but replaces Jesus and his apostles with scantily leather-clad men and women sitting at a table adorned with sex toys.

A spokesman for Pelosi told a San Francisco publication yesterday that the ad would not harm Christianity. Cybercast News Service put Pelosi herself on the spot at a news conference in the U.S. Capitol Friday. Here's the exchange between the reporter and Pelosi:

CNSNews.com: "I'd like to get local for a second and talk about what's going on in San Francisco. Your spokesman told the Bay Area Reporter that the Folsom Street Fair advertisement mocking the last supper would not harm Christianity. I'm wondering if you find the advertisement personally offensive.""And as a follow up, the city's Grants for the Arts program, funded by the city's hotel tax, subsidizes the fair. Do you think that it's fair to tax everyone who visits San Francisco and stays in a hotel to support the fair?"

Pelosi: "Well that's not really a local question. That's a constitutional question. That's a religious question. That's as big a global question as you can ask. I'm a big believer in First Amendment and therefore, as I said in my statement, I do not believe that Christianity has been harmed by the Folsom Street Fair advertising."

Kennedy 'Humiliates' Soldiers To Further Homosexual Rights
By Bob Unruh


Sens. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., and Gordon Smith, R-Ore., have trashed the collective reputations of millions of U.S. military service members in order to advance their "hate crimes" legislation, which would make it a crime to utter a negative opinion about homosexuals or their lifestyle, a pro-family group says.

The U.S. Senate yesterday approved an amendment by Kennedy and Smith to install in federal law a ban on such expressions of religious and personal opinion. The amendment was added to the Department of Defense Authorization bill, which is needed to keep funding worldwide U.S. military operations.

"[The] senators humiliate[d] our brave men and women in uniform by alleging that America's military is a haven for bigots committing 'hate crimes'," said Wendy Wright, the president of Concerned Women for America.

Thanks, JT, for bringing us this one! The Democrat party--and Ms. P's district--is looking more and more like an open-air Jerry Springer Show...

What in the hell is the matter with these people?

Do they hold nothing sacred? That pic is disgusting - and Splash Kennedy should've been put out to pasture a LONG time ago.

I agree with one small part of what Pelosi said. The miserable bast-rds who made that picture of the Last Supper don't "harm" Christianity, but they do infuriate decent people who have a sense of the sacred and at least a little respect for other people.
I'm a Jew and that kinda thing really burns my ass! Schmucks like those animals hate all people who believe in the Lord G-d of heaven and earth.

In the final analysis, bad Christians are the only one's who can do damage to Christianity.

They wouldn't have the nerve to dipict some kind of a Muslim thing, like inside a mosque. Nope, Christianity, the last socially acceptable form of bigotry. J'Mac.
