krupa“It’s understandable that the Catholic League is wary of another sex scandal, but the sex we’re talking about pertains to dogs and cats. As a practicing Catholic, I am shocked that the Catholic League is speaking out against my PETA ads, which I am very proud of. I’m doing what the Catholic Church should be doing, working to stop senseless suffering of animals, the most defenseless of God’s creation. I am a voice for innocent animals who are being neglected and dumped by the millions at shelters. In my heart I know that Jesus would never condone the suffering that results when dogs and cats are allowed to breed.”

- Joanna Krupa responding to criticism over her controversial PETA ad. Yesterday, Ecorazzi gave our support for the advertisement, but suspected it might anger a few people. What do you think about the ad? Chime in and share your thoughts!

    the Christian Taliban should raise its voice and be upset about the annual christian ritual sacrifice of tens of millions of tortured animals during X-Mas. That really is not a way to celebrate a truly religious festival.
    The Peta bashers (“eeks! nudity !sexism!”) can join up with the Cristian Taliban this time. (they make a good team..)

    I’m sure my objection to PETA’s gratuitous nudity is for different reasons from the Catholic Church’s objections. I agree with PETA’s message, I just dislike the medium. From all outward appearances, it appears the only suffering the Catholic Church cares about is the alleged suffering of the fetus when a pregnancy is terminated.

    The Catholic League should be up in arms about the cruelty committed in its name. In Spanish religious festivals directly condoned by the church, for example, bulls are impaled with darts and drowned, goats are thrown off of belltowers, and other horrors.

    Joanna is a wonderful advocate, nude or clothed.

    A Holiday Thought…

    Aren’t humans amazing Animals? They kill wildlife – birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative – and fatal – - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions of more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for “Peace on Earth.”

    Actually this is the best use for the christian cross I’ve ever seen. :)
    I knew this religious symbol had to have a purpose for something ;)

    Anyway, nudity and all its issues aside, this ad is beautiful and very inspiring!

    Hell with criticisms (if there are any) from the catholic religion – one of the most evil religions on earth. Maybe they should be more concerned with the fact that (once again) news came out saying that many priests in Ireland abused numerous children for decades and the catholic church instead of exposing it just covered it up… as usual!
    Therefore they have no authority whatsoever to criticize anyone for anything (oh, and this includes abortion).

    Again, I still think all religions (except Wicca and Buddhism which I really don’t include in the category of religions) are nothing but roots of evil, conflicts, false dogmas and they only prevent humanity from being truly free and evolve spiritually.

    Bravo Joanna!! A spectacularly beautiful add with such a wonderful message! I’ll be picking up my latest kitty family member from the vet this afternoon. She was spayed yesterday.
    The add is absolutely gorgeous. The message is mandatory. You have millions of supporters out here applauding you.
    Blessings to you!!

    The Catholic League is one angry dude who is mad at EVERYBODY. He’s a nutter.
    I don’t support Peta any longer, but no one should be worried about The Catholic League.

    i admire joanna’s courage in word and action! and booooo for the catholic church which until nowadays didn’t show much courage neither in defending animals nor people! among other misdeeds i’m referring to the conquista, the crusades, the wichhunts, the unholy inquisition and their nazi holocaust attitude! and did they apologize? until now i didn’t hear anything…..to the contrary: when i asked a priest on the burning of millions!!! of wiches in middle age he answered me: did you never burn anything when cooking???!!!??? they would burn also today if they could and not just the catholics…the worst are the so-called carismatic churches. there are members who are believing also today that there are wiches flying around in the sky! when they told me that they had a wich in their church and i said that i found her a sympathic person they told me: if you like you can fly with her at night…

  • ratking

    corrigenda: sorry, they burnt witches not wiches – just don’t get me wrong!

    what i dont understand is how you can make comments like all those above and still not do anything about it. That in my opinion is being a hypocrit, I am only 15 i go to a regular public school, if this was posted with anything that had to do with your religions then what would you say you would be just as offended as every true catholic that saw this add. Another really quick thing if it wasnt for test diseases on animals, your sorry asses would’ve been dead in a grave somewhere on this planet. If you want to start a religious “Debate” then lets talk about other religions and what they do……. Catholic priest abuse chirldren, you think other religion dont do other things???? My opinion on who ever made these comments and at least the supporting ones and this ad is pathetic. But then again im only 15, and sadly the days of adults listening to teens have passed.

    while i have a long-standing hatred of the catholic church, Joanna Krupa is an idiot & a hypocrite. she wants to call herself a “voice for the animals,” & yet she wears leather?

    go do something you’re actually good at, Krupa. & while you’re at it, put some fucking clothes on.

  • catherine

    she is so stupid i m catholic and it is not about animals it is she is using religious items that she is defacing and she should be sorry as a catholic that she is using a cross to cover her naked body
