Old joke. Cute, but an old joke. Christian`s, get over it, get a sense of humor. There was nothing insulting here, just an old joke.

Undoubtedly the newspaper left out his side. Although I doubt it was because of an anti-christian bias, rather, newspapers are in the business of selling newspapers, so to compete in a world where people have an ever-decreasing attention span, the papers resort to inflammatory language, especially in their titles, because most people only graze the headlines and don`t read the whole article. Sell them papers!

Religious people: "We need religion to play a bigger part in our daily lives!"

Two-minutes later: "During our discussion of religion, you offended me!"

That`s quite true @madduck!
There`s a big difference between ASKING for something to be removed and RIOTING/murdering over it, eh?

Example: A Dad had his daughter complain that a school-book was laced with profanity (Catcher in the Rye iirc) and taking God`s name in vain. So he asked her teacher if there might be an alternative book she could read that wasn`t so foul.

The news headline? Dad Demands Book Be Banned! Says it`s Anti-Christian!

"Someone" (the teacher obviously) had leaked the story to the news. The dad got on the radio to explain his side, which the newspaper utterly failed to do.
True story!

If there was a god, and if it cared one iota about what humans did I think it might have a sense of humour- how arrogant for believers to assume they know what a god thinks!

The "oh Jesus" at the end turned this from humor to bad taste, imo (using Jesus` name in a curse-type way). Also, from an ad agency perspective, using religion (of any persuasion) to advertise whatever product you are shilling is usually a lose/lose proposition.

Why does it matter what fake religions say about it? Their fake god is doing his thing from the fairy tale book. Everyone is allowed to have an opinion right?

Sure they can get mad...but it`s like getting mad cause someone pointed out that the sun gives us light. You can`t get mad at the truth.

It`s meant to be offensive. That way, they get more popular.

Works every time and Christians never learn the trick.

I am a Christian. I don`t feel I have to fight every battle that comes along or that everything that does come along is a battle. As such I have no problem with this ad. I know my faith and this doesn`t shake it in the least. and yes it made me laugh.

those that do have a problem with this are the weakest in their faith because they are so easily threatened.

That was very bad! It never should have made it past the `storyboard` stage of developement. Whomever approved it should lose their job.
Jesus takes teh Lord`s name in vain? His miracle was fake? YEah, Christians have every right to be as mad as heck.

As @Fleaman (and others) have suggested, if this were Muhammed there would be world-wide rioting and mass murder as a result.

[quote]if it had been something about that (Mohammad) guy, everyone would be flipping their poo right now.. but cause its jesus, its fair? [/quote]
Yes, it`s fair. Because while Mohammad would behead you for it, Jesus would turn the other cheek.
