Rolling Stone Rolls Uphill--Reverses Decision against Religious Advertising

Rolling Stone Magazine has apparently changed its mind about not accepting advertising with a religious message, or at least, so says the Houston Chronicle:

Rolling Stone magazine has reversed itself and agreed to accept an advertisement for a new translation of the Bible.

After first rejecting the advertisement, Rolling Stone sent Zondervan a contract for a half-page ad in the rock magazine's Feb. 24 issue, said Doug Lockhart, executive vice president of marketing at the nation's largest Bible publisher.

Lisa Dallos, a spokeswoman for Rolling Stone publisher Wenner Media LLC, said Tuesday that the company had "addressed the internal miscommunications that led to the previous misstatement of company policy and apologize for any confusion it may have caused."

Oh, so it was all a mistake--a misunderstanding about the advertising policies. I see.

I personally would like to think that it was my scathing commentary on the issue which caused the change, but I ain't that stupid.


"Ooohhhhhhhhh, THAT Bible!"

"Yeah, we have no problem with THAT Bible. Sorry for the misunderstanding."
