The Vatican is still threatening legal action because a Benetton ad showed Pope Benedict kissing an imam.
The controversy-loving Italian clothing company says it pulled the ad.
The doctored Pope kissing ad is part of a global campaign showing political and religious leaders kissing each other on the mouth.
There are also ads of USA President Barack Obama kissing Chinese President Hu Jintao...and French President Nicolas Sarkozy smooching with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
