blasphemous-- but mostly just dumb

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 13, 2006

Those laff-riot folks at Planned Parenthood have done it again. The Connecticut office is selling keychains with various oh-so-clever designs. One of them shows the famous detail from Michelangelo's depiction of the Creation of Man, from the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, in which God's finger reaches toward Adam's. In the tasteless Planned Parenthood version, God is handing Adam a condom.

This is what passes for humor, among the people who run the world's largest chain of abortion clinics. But if you think about it for just a second, the last laugh is on Planned Parenthood.

The purpose of a condom is to prevent the transmission of life. Its function is the very opposite of Creation.

You look at his offensive little parody, and you realize: If the Planned Barrenhood people had their way, there wouldn't be a Creation. Thanks for that reminder, folks!

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    These are the most hard hearted people in the universe. In my view anything they do or say is ugly. The reason for this is that these people that promote condoms and abortion have absolutely no conscience or heart. Any organization that can promote to slaughter the unborn have nothing good to contribute. So, everything that flows from this organization is Evil. Just think! Our Nation Sanctioned ,what these people promote and do,and the so called Catholic politicians continue to support them.

    The Planned Parenthood folks are not as dumb as you might think. Armkel LLC owns Trojan (the condom manufacturer), so they know a thing or two about condoms. According to Armkel's management, the brand of condoms most likely to fail are those handed out by the millions by Planned Parenthood. A free failed condom, in marketing parlance, would be a cost-effective loss leader that would increase the size of the abortion market.
