Please contact WTAWORLD staff regarding Dita Von Teese avatar

As a Christian, Dita Von Teese avatar is one of the most offensive depictions of Christ I have seen. Dita Von Teese has taken something that is a sacred symbol to billions of people around the world: a symbol of purity, charity and mercy and has stained it beyond recognition. As a board that ranks as one of the most tolerant on the web, I feel that there is no room for such a violent and sexually explicit disregard for the sacred. Please join me in voicing your concern to WTAworld staff.

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

if you saw a display that was publicly attacking something that was at the core of all that you love and hold dear, would "ignoring it" be good enough?

Get the fuck over it.

I hold panda bears sacred but if someone had a panda sex avatar I would be amused. Stop being a child about it.

But it's ok for them to compare gay marriage to beastiality, incest, etc.

I personnally think you should put it back on there. It's easy to feel bad when someone attacks your personnal beliefs. I wonder if that's how gay people feel when Christians attack the beliefs they have in a same-sex love relationship.

I don't really want to cause a huge commotion. If you're still interested, it is featured in my signature.
