Rolling Stone Advertising Policy Excludes Religion
From About.com advertising:
Rolling Stone Rejects Bible Ad
Rolling Stone has rejected an ad for the Today's New International Version of the Bible due out in February. Execs for the magazine say the ad violates an unwritten policy regarding ads containing religious messages.
Zondervan, the nation's largest Bible publisher, says the ad in Rolling Stone was key to the $1 million ad campaign, adding that the print ad does not contain the word "God" in it. Similar ads will run in The Onion, Modern Bride and on Web sites like VH1.com and MTV.com.
Guess we don't want to pollute the minds of our youth with religion, huh? After all, consider what great values they are recieving from such moral, musical icons as D12/Eminem who sing on "My Band":
I think everyone's all jealous and s*** cuz I'm like the lead singer of a band dude...
And I think everyone's got a f***** problem with me dude...They're all like "Oh my god it's him"
"Becky oh my f***** god it's Eminem"
"I swear to f***** god dude you f***** rock"
"Please Marshall please let me s*** your c***"
And let's not forget the great Usher's contribution (feat. Lil' Jon, Ludacris)in "Yeah":
Forget about the game I'm a spit the truth, I won't stop till I get em in they birthday suits...So gimmie the rhythm and it'll be off with they clothes, then bend over to the front and touch your toes...Me and Ush once more and we leave em dead, we want a lady in the street but a freak in the bed
Yeah, it sure is a good thing that Rolling Stone Magazine is protecting our children from religion, isn't it?
