Symbols of Ad Bigotry

I draw your attention to the Sept. 2 Calendar, in which there is an advertisement concerning a film titled "The Pope Must Die!" This ad, by using the miter and the woman's religious habit, which are specifically Catholic symbols, is offensive and insensitive to the Catholic community. The ad excerpts review words calling the movie "irreverent" and a "holy riot." I believe that bigotry includes the mockery of another because of race or religion. I believe it an outrage that you would permit religious bigotry to be printed on your paper.

I will make this letter and your ad known to the 2,500 faithful who worship here weekly, and they will be able to make their own evaluation on the matter.
