The fact the pope really doesn’t like gay people — specifically marriage equality — and doesn’t want an image of him kissing another man plastered around the world may have played some kind of role in the Vatican’s anger, too, I imagine.
But, hey, y’all, guess what. Most of the images are of men kissing men. You know, gay kissing. Those in the campaign may not like it, but there has been no torrent (publicly) of anti-gay sentiment that I could find. Just whining about the shock value. And plenty of publicity for Benetton.
The Unhate Foundation has a great film included in its campaign that also includes some gay kissing. And they are much sexier than the world leaders images as well. Check it out and let us know what you think.
