Re: Oops!

Some people are in a permanent state of being offended! I'll be in church on Good Friday but don't feel that non church goers should suffer in any way because of my belief. I'm amazed that the professional advertising execs at Tesco could get it so wrong. It's probably cost them business lol

Re: Oops!

I'm not offended personally but I guess many are, and even 'non Christians' dare I say it.

Well how else are parents meant to recover from kids being hyper from eating a tonne of sugar-laden chocolate? Funny

Re: Oops!

But you have to ask the usual question like why only Christians.

For instance do you think Tesco would run a similarly crass ad like "Great offers on food. Get stuffed after Ramadan".

Yes you would have thought so, but the Tesco twerps seem to suggest otherwise.

@7up  The EDL and other similar groups would dhortem that, I think!

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.
