Christian Creates Christ-Centered Guidelines on Sex and Advertising
Adrants reader Mike sent us this manifesto on why sex and advertising are two pools that just shouldn't mix. Apparently sex in advertising is an assault on religious freedom, a form of lying and prostitution, and a contributing reason why consumers are covetous. The central authority is the Bible, from which twelve reasons are outlined on why it's totally illogical and immoral to attach a luscious naked body or lascivious thought to ... well, burritos, for example.
We laughed, we cried, we murmured Hail Marys. If for some odd reason you are fascinated and you feel compelled to take things a step further, check out A Brief History on Sex in Advertising which actually contains 1924's established advertising code of ethics. The short piece plays with the question of when sex in advertising is appropriate and inappropriate.
We're sure we don't have to tell you we think it's appropriate all the time. Yes, even for cheese. - Contributed by Angela Natividad
