Blasphemy Blogging

Some people just need to lighten up.
Sony pulls "Jesus" advert for PlayStation
ROME (Reuters) - Sony has apologized for an advertising campaign for its PlayStation game console which featured a young man wearing a crown of thorns with the slogan "Ten years of passion".

Some Catholics were outraged by the adverts, which ran in newspapers and magazines to celebrate the product's tenth anniversary.
Sony's ad is not the first to irk Catholics in recent months.

"There's no religion any more", read a slogan for IKEA in an advert to inform Italians, whose Church attendance is steadily falling, that its furniture stores were open on a Sunday.

Let it go, people. The truth is that for a whole lot of the world, there isn't any religion any more. But really, the whole dour thing - it's bad for you! Come on, we Jews can laugh at ourselves (Yes, I own his 1st album)! Join the fun! God loves everyone, right? Even the people who shop for furniture on Sundays.
