Is education garbage because pedophile teachers molest children (and at a much higher rate than priests do)? And since when was the pope himself even accused of pedophilia? This whole campaign is infantile crap I'd expect to find doodled in a disturbed 9th grader's English notebook. I guess if disturbed 9th graders with no sense of decency and no capability of logical, rational thought is the target then it's right on.

No one had accused the pope of pedophilia, but the pope represents the catholic church itself and so the catholic priests, who HAVE being accused of pedophilia in hundreds of places and times around the world, more than teachers btw, so I think the representation it's well made. This campaing it's genious.

Teachers abuse children more than priests do .... 100 times more. Here's a study from the US Dept. of Education that proves it.

but priests are leaders who preach morals and values with religious implications....like "you're going to hell." Everyone needs to be held accountable...especially those who have enough power to hide each and every child molestation case.

With teachers, you can fire them and send them to jail. They don't have the pope backing them up.

Mike
you are wrong. teachers do NOT abuse children more than priests. You are making this up.

And besides IF it were true would that somehow make pointing out the evil of organized religion wrong?? No!

"No one had accused the pope of pedophilia" Is it possible that the huge subhead "Pedo Pope" has escaped your attention?
Mike is right, this is infantile sh*t. God save the creator kids from pedo priests.

schools dont have an institutional policy of covering up child molestation cases and silencing victims. the catholic church does.ratzi has participated in, and is now responsible for that policy. poor fucking analogy.

Teachers do not belong to an organization that protects them from the law and hides them from justice. Teachers do not belong to an organization that just moves them around to rape more unsuspecting kids. Teachers do not belong to an organization that tries to dig up every excuse in the book to cover or excuse their actions. The issues here is not that priests or any individual rapes kids. The issue here is that an organization that claims moral authority protects those rapists.

Protection of paedophile priests is as bad or worse than the actual crime itself. There is a widespread view the pope has indeed engaged in such cover-ups.

This is lame. It's not lame for any religious or political reasons...it's just trying too hard to be "edgy". It's like a bunch of college students are running a creative department. And not cool college students. The lame ones that try too hard to be your friend.

Do you believe that the Principal of a school would shelter pedophile teachers? If they did, one might expect them to be held, in part, accountable for the actual act of pedophilia.

Absolutely they should be held accountable. The problem with your point is that the Pope pictured in the ad wasn't even Pope when the scandal was going on and there's no evidence that the prior Pope was actively sheltering pedophile priests. There was at least one bishop accused of it I know that.

pedobear is a free internet character that's being featured worldwide in thousands of pictures and merchandising, no one have claimed the copyrighr yet so yeah, he can use it. And I dont think it's immature, finaly people are telling what they think.

thier target market already has a closet full of southpark tshirts! i dont think they'll be much interested in these campaigns

@mike. I think aiding and abbetting pedophillia - as ratzi did by covering up child molestation cases in his cardinal days - is a good enough reason to be called pedopope. And as far selling to people with no decency and incapable of rational thought: it hardly looks like the church is their target audience.

Such a miss of refinement and intelligence… that could not be an ad, maybe propaganda, just like religion.

Not only is this whole campaign offensive to ANY person who believes in religion,
but the art looks like some 6th grader who just learned photoshop designed it.

I would give this ad a 0/10. trash.

This isn't an ad, by the way. Visit their site. It's a design which is being merchandised itself by eshe, stamped on everything from skateboards to cigarette lighters. So I question whether it belongs here.

Cynical agency takes cynical corporate money and pisses it into the wind in an attempt to be down with the kids. Top marks.

Somehow I support these illustrations. But I don't understand the connection of a clothing brand with anti-religion.

But there is connection between this stupid agency and there asshole, frustrated, amature racist so-called creative team. the whole campaign and brand itself is not more than a GARBAGE

I think freedom of speech is a right to be kept... and I think that for too long has the public opinion allowed the Church to influence millions of people with their non-sense "we are doing a greater good for mankind speech"...

There's a big vault with a lot of money in a small place in Italy... and yet, bulb lamps light up when you chip in to pay your promises.

Love the campaign and love the tone.
