Quel scandal!

That's a very nice picture, wouldn't you say? It's clearly inspired by Da Vinci's Last Supper. One should congratulate fashion designers Girbaud for its refined taste. So what about it?

According to this BBC story, this poster has been banned in France and Italy (that's two European countries, one of them clearly secular even!) because it is "a gratuitous and aggressive act of intrusion on people's innermost beliefs"! This is outrageous! What about freedom of expression?! Are we back in the dark ages of the Spanish Inquisition? If this is considered to be religiously intrusive, then I'll join Rowan Atkinson's freedom to insult campaign - right now! Count me in!

Again, congratulations to Girbaud - not only for creating a nice fashion campaign, but also (inadvertently, I presume) for fighting for freedom of expression. Please appeal those injunctions, I am pretty sure you'll come out on top! And there's a lot of free advertising ...
