Christians in America are signing a petition to boycott ‘Sweet Jesus’, an ice cream chain from Canada pushing into the US. “It’s satanic!” “It’s blasphemous!” they say. As a Christian outside the US would you sign this petition?
According to BuzzFeed News, Christians are saying the chain mocks their religion with its signs and adverts.
“Choosing the name of our Lord for a brand of soft-serve ice cream is totally offensive and revolting,” a petition on CitizenGo says. “Both in their promotional materials and menu selection, it is plain to see that Richmond and Todai have every intention of mocking Christ and Christianity. If anything could qualify as ‘hate speech,’ this is it!”
A blog Activist Mommy describes the brand as blasphemous, saying: “This is immediately apparent by their logo, which features an SS style ‘S.’ popular among equally blasphemous and Satanic metal bands of the 70s and 80s, and an upside down cross.”
However, ‘Jesus’, is a common name in Spain, but Christians are not having it.
The petition on CitizenGo and has rake in over 9000 signatures and still counting. As a Christian, would you sign this petition?
