This is about the new book called Our Lady of Controversy: Alma Lopez's Irreverent Apparition that is being offered for sale on Amazon.com, the world's largest bookseller.
On the cover is a photo of Our Lady of Guadalupe in a floral bikini.
According to Amazon's website, the book refers to:
"Months before Alma Lopez's digital collage Our Lady of Controversy was shown at the Museum of International Folk Art in 2001, the museum began receiving angry phone calls from community activists and Catholic leaders who demanded that the image not be displayed. Protest rallies, prayer vigils, and death threats ensued, but the provocative image of la Virgen de Guadalupe (hands on hips, clad only in roses, and exalted by a bare-breasted butterfly angel) remained on exhibition."
Do you think Amazon would carry a similar book about Mohammed's wife or daughter?
Of course, they would not.
Then why is Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Mother of God, blasphemed? And this is considered acceptable.
That's why I ask you to sign this urgent petition to Amazon.com, asking them to please remove this blasphemous book called Our Lady of Controversy: Alma Lopez's Irreverent Apparition.
