This advert has been banned after six sensitive wee souls complained because it ‘mocked the beliefs of Catholics’.


Gay Catholic ice cream ad

Whereas this advert, which six people in our pants alone complained about because it mocked the beliefs of anyone who is sane, wasn’t banned.


Christian lies

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) upheld the six (count ’em!) complaints about the ad for Antonio Federici ice cream after deciding that it ‘considered the portrayal of the two priests in a sexualised manner was likely to be interpreted as mocking the beliefs of Roman Catholics and was therefore likely to cause serious offence.’

Interestingly, Antonio Federici is a Catholic-owned company, a spokesman for whom said the ads ‘reflected the grave troubles they considered affected the Catholic Church.’

And so say all of…… Oooh, cock!

So, in conclusion, the Advertising Standards Authority snacks from the same cookie jar as morons who find the idea of two male priests kissing (which, lest we forget, is legal and rather nice. As opposed to, ooh, we don’t know… bumming small children? That example okay? No? Okay, how about telling people that using a condom will give you AIDS? No? Still not good enough? Erm… Saying Nazism was a result of secularism? Even though Hitler was a Roman Catholic? No? You people are hard to please!) offensive, rather than clever people with nice hair, eyes that pop whilst wearing red and more than a passing acquaintance with the truth.

Crazy world.

  1. Is there no such thing as truth in advertising laws?

  2. I complained to the ASA about that Christian ad at the time, asking whether it was now acceptable for adverts just to lie. Straight out lie. They didn’t uphold my complaint, giving me some spurious bollocks about the Christian Party being a political group or some such and there being different rules for them then, say, L’Oreal.
    So apparently, if you fill in a form before you put out adverts, you can outright lie. I personally find it dizzzzzzguzting.
    Really does seem these religious freaks are given far too many concessions.
