Joanna Krupa’s sexy PETA ad against animal breeding and pet stores is causing a celestial uproar.

The organization’s latest ad has angered the Catholic League for their use of religious symbols. The CL’s president, Bill Donahue, said in a statement that he would find it “hard to find an organization in the U.S. which treats animals more unethically than People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA),” adding that PETA are “animal killers” and that Krupa is a “Playboy queen.”

The ad features the ‘Dancing With the Stars‘ contestant nude and winged like an angel. She holds a crucifix, which strategically covers her naughty parts. The inscription in the ad reads: “Be an Angel for Animals: ALWAYS ADOPT. NEVER BUY.”

But Krupa, who is Catholic herself, is striking back. Through a statement released by PETA, she says: “As a practicing Catholic, I am shocked that the Catholic League is speaking out against my PETA ads, which I am very proud of. I’m doing what the Catholic Church should be doing, working to stop senseless suffering of animals, the most defenseless of god’s creation. I am a voice for innocent animals who are being neglected and dumped by the millions at shelters. In my heart I know that Jesus would never condone the suffering that results when dogs and cats are allowed to breed.”
