Toronto Based Ice Cream Shop Mocks God And Christians. by TiffanyDavies(f): 6:25pm On Mar 28, 2018
The online community is still in a frenzy over Toronto based ice cream shop named 'Sweet Jesus'. Christians in the US, who regard the name as ' 'balsphemous' and regard it as 'hate speech', call for a boycott of the shop, and have begun an online petition calling for a name change and a public apology from the management. Other groups who are not christians, but think that the advert makes a mockery of the christian faith, are also in support of the petition. The shop currently boasts of about 20 Toronto locations and is fast expanding into the US to the dismay of Christians. The brand whose logo whose logo contains an inverted 's' and a 'lightning bolt', makes use of words and phrases such as 'last supper', 'bless', 'cross to bear' and 'God' from the bible in its menu. It also uses loud graphic advert strategies such as a bleeding vampire, and a ship's boy with a rosary resembling that used by catholics.
Owners of the brand--Andrew Richmond and Amin Todai have responded stating that it is quite unfortunate that persons are displeased with the name of their brand, but that it would not be changed. According to them, "Sweet Jesus is an honest reflection of our experiences and that of our customers and how they react when they try our product. In our experience, the majority of people understand that we're not trying to make a statement about religion."
As few days ago, those who seem to think that the advert shop is harmless were leading in an opinion poll. However, more persons are beginning to sign the petition calling for a name change.
Those interested in signing the petition calling for a name change are enjoined to do so at: https://www.change.org/p/change-org-change-the-name-of-sweet-jesus-ice-cream-remove-offensive-antichrist-imagery-immediately; http://citizengo.org/en-ca/sc/158645-toronto-based-ice-cream-parlours-serve-blasphemy

The upside down cross there tells who they are, satanists. It's no big deal.

Satan has been jealous of Jesus ftom before he was cast down here.

The more the demean Jesus, the more souls get convicted and converted.

Jesus is sweet whether or not satan says so.

BTW, why haven't i seen satanists proclaiming sweet satan on their products for once? They only place their hidden symbols which many won't even decode.

Satan is a coward and so are his agents.

how is he mocking anyone @ TiffanyDavies?
Well, they are actually mocking Jesus, for Jesus is not spelt with a bolt sign which is Satan's symbol. They placed an inverted cross and a bolt sign side by side.

These people are openly declaring to the public that they worship satan and their target are kids. See the vampire girl?


Let he who have eyes see.

They even added Scriptures " Thou shall not take the name of the Lord in vain" and they added Damn, that's Delicious.
You know what? Many Christians are ignorant of this and would buy this ice cream and some won't see anything wrong with it.

Means, taking the name of the lord in vain is damn delicious to them.

I feel for ignorant christians who will feed their kids this ice cream. Demon possession shall take place.

First, you must understand the management of the ice cream chain do not identify with christianity. If that is the case, then why did they decide to use the name of Jesus as their business name? Second, why make allusions to bible verses, symbols and attempt to write them in reverse or make them comical? The cross is attributed to Christianity. So are angels.
Three, the use of scary images of children is questionable. Four, This isn't a fight for Christians alone. If brands like this allowed freedom to do as they please with people's religious beliefs, then a war is imminent. Tomorrow, it could very well be the Muslim faith being mocked.

May be the reason was mockery. May be. But so is alot being done by people who call themselves Christian to bring contempt to Christianity itself. At the same time, whether by contempt, pretence, pride, whatever it is that the Gospel is spread, let it.
