News Catholic League Announces Miller Beer Boycott
posted by September 27 at 10:10 AMon
Catholic League president Bill Donohue announced a national boycott of Miller Beer on this morning’s “Fox and Friends.” …
“This all started when we learned that Miller was sponsoring an event that featured an obscene ad thrashing the Last Supper. After being pressured, Miller offered a lame statement of regret and said it was pulling its logo from the ad. Not only has it not done so—it is still posted on the website of the street fair—Miller refuses to withdraw its sponsorship…. Accordingly, Miller leaves us with no options: we are calling on more than 200 Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu organizations to join with us in a nationwide boycott of Miller beer. We feel confident that once our religious allies kick in, and once the public sees the photos of an event Miller is proudly supporting, the Milwaukee brewery will come to its senses and pull its sponsorship altogether.”
To ensure that the public sees the photos of the event, the Catholic League has thoughtfully posted dozens of pics from last year’s Folsom Street Fair on their website. Some of my favorites after the jump.
