Catholic League Makes Univ. of Georgia Remove God Condom Posters


As part of its Sexual Responsibility program, the University of Georgia had placed several poster in dorms that used the iconic imagery of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel to promote contraception. The poster depicted God reaching out to Adam and handing him a condom.

The posters offended Catholic League president Bill Donohue, who accused the university of misappropriating Christian iconography to promote condom distribution. In a letter to Georgia's Vice President of Public Affairs, Dr. Rodney D. Bennett, Donohue demanded the posters be removed.

"If condom distribution is to be part of that program, surely it can be done without needlessly offending the religious sensibilities of Catholics and Protestants," wrote Donohue.

After consideration Bennett agreed to take down the offending posters, going so far as to write a letter of apology in which he promised to do everything possible to avoid similar incidents in the future.

"Too bad other officials, in and out of education, aren't as honest and diligent as Dr. Bennett. I am happy to say that this ends our dispute with the University of Georgia. Case closed," wrote Donohue in a statement praising the university's decision.
