Of course it's offensive. That's why PETA does it. Ho hum.

I saw that picture the other day...I really didn't notice a crucifix...only a cross. Maybe this picture is better....;)

yes apparently you can only ever get your message across if you are naked... why didn't they give her some clothes?

Being naked doesn't even have as much of an impact when her body looks more like a painting than a photograph. She looks fake to me. But I don't understand why she needs to be naked to begin with.

The nudity is an attention-grabber. I think it's pretty offensive too. The one EZ posted was alright though (albeit much less provocative and it's kind of boring, which is much less effective... at least offensive isn't boring).

Of course she knew that would be offensive. I hate when people do such blatantly disrespectful things and then bat their eyelashes innocently as if they meant no harm. Seeing a person naked causes sexual reactions or less than pure thoughts in most people, even if only intitially or briefly, so it's rather disgusting that someone would think, "Hey, let's make her naked and give her a cross!"

And if she really doesn't get why this is P*ssing the church off, she needs to go to church more often. I think PETA is great for the most part, but when you start resorting to naked women with crucifixes to get attention...you're reaching.

im too lazy to see if someone else already said this, but the nude is in regards to their other campaign "i'd rather be naked than wear fur"


personally I think they are all nut jobs with nothing better to do. but i'm also a down home country catholic girl ;)

1. So that's who Joanna Krupa is, I never heard of her before she went on Dancing with the Stars (if I've never heard of them, what makes them so famous?)

2. PETA exists solely to get in people's faces about fur and meat, and the Catholic League exists solely to get offended anytime he thinks the church is being criticized or made fun of. To heck with them both

Honestly, I'm not offended by nudity in the least. It is the fact that using women's bodies to 'sell' something, even if it is something I believe in. I truly believe in adopting shelter animals but do you really need to sell that with a naked body?

I say just ignore them. If you want to know about shelter animals, look at the ASPCA or HSUS, if you want to know about the cruelties of factory farming and the fur industry, look at HSUS.

I'm not offended, but also not too strongly religious. And pretty desensitized to nudity (art school :shrug: ) And I totally agree with the message. My family has always been pretty big on adopting rather than buying, as buying encourages breeding leading to overpopulation and there are too many homeless animals already. That said, I don't agree with all things PETA, they're a crazy bunch!

Definately in bad taste. I don't get offended too easily but this did it and I am not even catholic. That said, though, I do believe in the message. We have two adopted dogs, one through a Safe Haven Society and the other one my husband adopted after someone found him on the street. I have a bumper magnet on my car that says Save a Life, Adopt a Homeless Animal so I am definately for adopting animals and not buying from pet shop.

The ad is in poor taste, in my opinion, but it doesn't necessarily offend me. I do think the ad is poorly designed in general, though. Doesn't PETA raise enough money to hire a good graphic artist to finish their print work???

Regardless, the message is something I agree with. Dh and I have two shelter animals that we love dearly.

I agree. It is in poor taste and poorly designed. They also had to know they would offend some people, which strikes me as a poor choice when they are trying to convince people to do something they want.
