Humor Over KLM's Seatbelt Irony

            “In an age of spiritual turbulence it's important to remember that seat belts, like human beings, are created for a purpose.” That is my favorite quote of the week from Matt Archbold's blog with the National Catholic Register,
He took on the irony of the pro-gay pride ad from KLM Royal Dutch Airlines that inadvertently made the point that only complimentary parts can work together for your well-being.
The airline intended to support the gay pride movement by showing 3 pairs of rainbow-striped seatbelts; 2 with the same parts facing each other and 1 with parts that actually fit together.  The ad read: “It doesn’t matter who you click with.”
And thus they stumbled into an obvious truth—it does matter whether the parts fit.  This is not to bash anyone­—well, maybe rough up the ad department a bit—because as Saint Pope John Paul II used to say: “Love first!” Everyone needs love and support such as offered through Courage International for those who are same-sex attracted.
As for KLM Airlines, thanks for all the entertaining tweets this week.  Hope your engineering department stays the hell away from your advertising department.
