Catholic Supply of St. Louis is also guilty of using stock art DRIPPING with modern sensibilities, values and assumptions.
1. She only has 1 child.
2. Now that the child is 8, she's well into her 40's (according to the maxims of the world, you don't even get married until 30, then you need a few years before you "start a family", etc.)
I don't want to hear all the excuses why a devout Catholic could find herself in the picture above. Even if you could come up with some scenario (I know I could), that doesn't mean it would be the norm.
When advertisers, movies, TV studios, etc. promote rare, unusual or "fringe cases", they are trying to make that fringe more mainstream. Period. This happened with divorce in the 1950's, it happened with gay couples in the 2000's, and they also promote race-mixing in this manner.
And the question is WHY. If I could believe that the Jewish media was promoting more interracial couples for the good of the Catholic Church, an increase in conversions, the birth of new Catholic nations, etc. I wouldn't have a problem with it. But I know what kind of relationships they are pushing, and what goal for the world they have in mind. They want us to become weaker as a people, lose all our native (Catholic) cultures, and become "one race" with something like Hollywood/American culture in place of our old Catholic cultures -- all so they can control us easier.
So while I am OK with Catholics marrying outside their race, I am nevertheless against the ongoing Jewish campaign to promote inter-racial marriage. Does this make it clearer?
When you're advertising, you get to pick from hundreds or thousands of candidates (or even stock photos). You get to pick exactly what is used in your advertisement! Do you want more makeup, less makeup? A bit more flesh showing, or a bit less? A bit younger of a model? All of that is 100% up to you -- you're the one paying the bills, right? You're the customer.
When you're advertising something, you only choose a model with a single arm amputated if you want that for some reason. You don't just "happen to pick" a model without an arm, just to be inclusive or fair.
Actually, you'd shy away from the single-arm amputee model, because it would make your target audience feel more estranged from the pictured ideal in the advertisement. That person in the ad is supposed to be "you", more or less.
Nothing against amputees of course, but it's a simple fact that I don't identify myself with them. I mean, should I apologize for that? I happen to have both my arms (Deo gratias), so that particular state of mind should be normal and expected for me.
Anyhow, I guess I shouldn't be surprised. We all know that the Novus Ordo, taken as a whole, is not Catholic broadly speaking. The average Novus Ordo Catholic is indistinguishable from the average mainstream protestant. And this Catholic Supply business targets the Novus Ordo mostly.
Notice I said mainstream (not having beliefs) rather than fundamentalist (having beliefs). Because fundamentalists have both NO Catholics and mainstream prots beat. At least they believe in something, and they let it affect their daily life.
