So often if we were to play the game of match the headline to the article we would be unable to find the necessary connections. Case in point this headline Sony provokes wrath of the Holy See in regards to the advertisement of a man with what looks like a crown a thorns but is actually symbols from a Playstation. So what it the wrath of the Holy See?
Italian Cardinal Ersilio Tonini was among the first to speak out, calling it "an irreverent mockery".
"The advert displays a lack of taste which conceals a lack of respect. Kids shouldn’t be induced into believing that the passion of Christ is a game," Tonini was quoted as saying Friday.
Wrath just isn’t what it use to be. Of course Cardinal Tonini is the Archbishop Emeritus of Ravenna-Cervia, Italy which I would think that makes him not even part of the Holy See.
Sony has pulled the ad and said that it had been "misunderstood." Wow, what an original defense. A man wearing what appears to be a crown of thorns with the subtitle "Ten Years of Passion" should never have been misinterpreted in relating to the passion of Christ in the first place – an obvious misunderstanding.
