Catholic Group Urges Boycott of Miller Brewing Co. Over San Francisco Fair Sponsorship

From foxnews.com.

The nation’s largest Catholic civil rights group urged a national boycott of Miller Brewing Co. Thursday for its sponsorship of a San Francisco street fair.

“The Catholic League is upset over Miller’s ties to a fair promoted in an ad that shows semi-nude men and women in bondage at a table with sex toys portraying Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” painting.

“Miller is sponsoring an incredibly outrageous and palpably anti-Christian event,” said Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League.

The 2007 Folsom Street Fair, which organizers promote as “fairgrounds filled with people in their most outrageous leather/rubber/fetish attire” is planned for Sunday on Folsom Street in San Francisco.

The fair will benefit a group of local charities, including an organization called the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who call themselves “queer nuns.”

“Want to put your cute leather outfit to good use and serve the community at the same time?” according to a promotion on the group’s Web site.

Miller wants its logo removed from the poster, according to a statement in the New York Sun.”
