Vienna: Church co-opts advertising

Posted on April 18, 2006



We have already seen strange church ads in Vienna-Marihilf. But this seems to be the latest clerical trend: I took the picture of this ad in Vienna-Hütteldorf.

Bill board. (novala)

It says "Cloisters and monasteries: Official sponsor of retreat and meditation." Signed by "the catholic orders.". Herrgott noch einmal" is equivalent to the exclamation "Jesus Christ!".

What’s next? Monks dancing in the Christopher Street Parades?
