I’m Catholic and abstain from eating meat and poultry Fridays during Lent. So part of me sees the ad and thinks, “Great! Now I know where to get a good deal on red snapper.”
Another part of me thinks this ad is strange and somewhat inappropriate. Lent is a somber and penitential time, not a time for “great buys.”
Must every celebration, holiday and observance also be an occasion to try and make a buck?
