Is This Photoshopped Pope Picture Offensive?


Today, DC Pizza, a Washington pizza chain, sent around an email with a doctored photo of Pope Francis celebrating the Mass and holding a pizza up in place of the Holy Eucharist.  DC Pizza likely intended no offense.  Nonetheless, its email is a callous disrespect for Catholicism.

We make our objections known in peace and with hope, charity, and faith in the Risen Lord.
