Corporate America is sorry if anbody actually respected Jesus

Gary Randall at Faith and Freedom Network fisks Miller's half-assed apology for the inexcusable:
Earlier this month, we made you aware of the poster which replaces Christ and His disciples with homosexuals. It was used to promote the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco.

Concerned Women for America first expressed concern and criticism of the poster, then others joined in condemning the act.

Within twenty-four hours, the Miller Brewing Company asked to have their logo removed. Now, they are making public apologies.

However, there are some interesting comments that came from this fiasco.

Nehl Horton, Miller Senior Vice President said after being called on it, "We apologize to everyone who we offended."

Translation: Please don't stop buying our products.

Andy Copper, board president of the Folsom Street event said after Miller got called on their participation in the event, "Miller was never afforded the opportunity to review our fair poster before it was printed and distributed."

Translation: Don't take this out on Miller, they are our friends and we want their money next year.

Copper, again, "I would like to apologize to anyone who felt that the image was disrespectful to their religious beliefs."

Translation: We had no idea that more than one hundred million Americans really felt strongly about Christianity and it's leader, Jesus.

Copper, one more time. "No malicious intent was intended."

Translation: We didn't think anyone held anything sacred.

Nancy Pelosi said, "I do not believe that Christianity has been harmed by the Folsom Street Fair advertising."

Translation: We didn't think you all would get that upset. Let's just forget about it and move on.

Schwarzenegger said, "No comment."

Translation: Just vote for me, but don't get me involved with this thing. Besides, I like girls.

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said in their printed program, "To all organizers and attendees of the Folsom Street Fair, their families, friends, colleagues and visitors from home and around the world, have a great day and enjoy this wonderful and exciting event."

Translation: I've sold my soul for my job. I love my job.

The shortest scripture verse in the Bible comes to mind. "Jesus wept."
