Thanks to the atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation and the New York Times for reminding the rest of the world what that anti-Catholicism is still fashionable in America. As Charles Lewis at Canada’s National Post reports:
The American culture wars are never far from the surface but on Friday they moved to a new level with the publication of a full-page advertisement in the New York Times that blames the Catholic Church for most of the world’s ills.
It is titled: “It’s Time To Consider Quitting the Catholic Church.” The ad features a cartoon of an insane bishop, screaming at the top of his lungs over the issue of birth control pills. To the right is a disgusted looking woman with her arms crossed saying, “It’s hard to swallow.”
The tag line at the bottom of the page says: “Please, Exit En Mass.”
