The Ford Motor Co. is pulling an advertisement for its Lincoln Mark LT pickup from the Super Bowl ad rotation amid complaints from a group called Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. The spot, which featured a Christian clergyman of unknown denomination who is tempted by the performance of the luxury truck, was deemed offensive by the group. "... [W]hile we don't agree with their assessment, we're understanding of their opinion," a Lincoln Mercury spokeswoman said.
