Religion, its fucking terrible. Probably the single worst thing that man has ever invented
very funny indeed.
you don't see them censoring things that might offend me, you know, saying that there is a God and Jesus walked the earth and died for my sins. I have to listen to that shit
its the law.
Religion on Tv, can't complain
its just like black people can't be racist, well in a court of law they can't.
can be convicted of racially aggravated assault etc in a court of law.
watch the GHD adverts eh?
works both ways
stupid fucking shitty bollocks
as is yours
religious views should have no special protection but a) religious groups have a historically powerful lobby and b) have a set framework of belief so they can more convincingly argue that something "objectively" contradicts that
I don't find that add offensive, so back off.
"It acknowledged that a small number of Christians might object to the adverts, but said it did not believe they would cause widespread or serious offence."
Plus, THIS upset you? Surely there are much worse things going on in the world tied up with religion you could have cited.
all of the above
they are the 'right' one
ha ha ha ha ha
rather than blind faith
ha ha ha
Where you hit:
Oh shit, I've probably pissed him off some more, now.
huh? That’s whack! Playstation is whack! ‘Sup with the whack Playstation, ‘sup?! Huh? Come on, am I 19 or what?!
That's not leaving my head any time soon.
love this kind of thing. Far more press then if it hadn't been banned. I might approach Nike, with an idea for an advert, where I just shit in one of the trainers whilst reading a paper.
"Stupid fucking Christians"? If you happen to be Christian (and you can be without being a nutcase) these adverts actually are pretty offensive.
is pretty offensive
For a minute I was afraid you weren't going to look at this objectively.
I mean, Apple computers clearly have intelligent design and I think dissing them like that would just have got him angry.
or we Evolved
My money is on science.
but your point is still incredibly silly.
thats the only incredibly silly thing going on here
How are you so incapable of understanding the distinction?
religion is the reason for the advert being banned, and people on here have said its offensive.
if a few people get something banned in the name of religion it reflects on the religion as a whole.
Or that all Christians want it banned.
why should such a small number speak for so many on a matter of faith?
why should the ASA have listened to them? do non christians not get a say?
do we not say "mission to London" adverts are offensive to us as we don't believe in a god. Fucking mission to london bollocks
Their argument isn't "all christians find this offensive on religious grounds", it's "I find this offensive on religious grounds."
You seem to be oblivious to the difference.
there are one and the same
its banned due to christians finding it offensive, and they are using their religion and the power of the religion to ban it to 'save' other christians getting offended
that the ASA doesn't work like that, and you're making wild assumptions about individuals motives now.
Nietzsche and Dawkins, eat your heart out
If it were god, i'd have been sent to hell long ago
Why are people unable to discuss Christianity without only referring to the fanatics?
It's as bad as when people assume all football supporters are hooligans, or feminists assume all men are misogynists or all Muslims are suicide bombers or whatever.
It's silly, entirely illogical, ridiculously prejudiced and completely destroys all hope of sensible discussion.
or however its spelt
really, the morman faith is probably the second most ridiculous mainstream faith. Its close, but not that close, to Scientology.
i LOVE the moomins!
for a thread. Just ignore it you bellend.
with their massive underestimation of human intelligence is incredibly small.
I find anyone comparing their hair product to a religion pretty offensive but not 'cos I'm at all religious, just 'cos it's stupid.
it just doesnt work, you can't link the two and it doesnt strike a chord with you, it just doesnt work. It doesnt mean it should be banned. I think the new Stella advert is shit, the Elephant.co.uk ad is shit, the MoneySupermarket is shit, gocompare.com., they are all fucking terrible, it doesnt offend me, i just think they're shit
but the guy who came up with it is clearly shit at his job, or was just having a bad day at the office.
and the people at GHD are mugs for letting it get through the first stage of brainstorming.
still, they make damn good straightners
they've taken something we hold dear and changed its meaning or context to make a different point
yeah, really offensive that.
How about being made to sing hyms in school for 11 years of my life. I think thats fucking terrible. What 8 year old can tell his teacher he won't sing hyms without getting detention. Stupid school
You are funny
does detention for 8 year old kids? May go some way to explaining the reationary nature of your thread though.
schools were different
talk up in my school in my village about singing hims and BAM you were outside the headmistresses office at break time for 'being naughty'
to sing HIM
just lambs lane primary school
it just so happened we had assembly and had to sing hyms, the only lines i'd sing were
"i was cold i was naked were you there were you there, i was cold i was naked were you there"
then we'd all giggle
the concept of religion and organised religion.
banter and seriousness.
I know nothing!
We should put out an advert for an idiot a day to visit the site to cheer us all up in t'morning.
So no sending up the key tenets of science or empiricism or anything like that
I have a +2 broadsword and some fire and guntrip's got a bunch of Melf's Acid Arrow's learnt.
to discredit atheists the world over via the medium of irrational and illogical arguments.
no seriously, the pope is the biggest joke of all. Him and Avram Grant look a little too similar, as in EVIL, pure Evil.
The whole 'no to contraception' thing just baffles me
what the reaction to this thread would have been if it had been called 'Stupid Fucking Muslims', or 'Stupid Fucking Jews'.
I'm not Christian, but they don't seem to get the same 'PC' protection, that the other religions do.
but then it's understandable given our history as a traditionally Christian country.
Parts of it are ignorance and offensiveness but parts of it are a wider version of that logic where you can say things about your own family you'd neve say about anyone else's.
do you find it offensive or worse that something got carried out in the name of your religion.
I'd find it more offensive if someone took my belief system and used to to carry our their own agenda when what they'd actually done was twist it and use it to justify their own means rather than what i hold dear
Just because one person finds something offensive, doesn't mean another in a similar group does. Some people find Jim Davidson funny, I don't. I find most of his standup to be outdated, ill informed and offensive in many cases. That doesn't mean every white caucasian able-bodied agnostic male in the country will do. Similarly, many Muslims find the publication of an image of Muhammed to be extremely offensive. Others don't. Do the ones who do, and react in the ways we've seen speak for ones who really don't care?
they should all die for being stupid and not realising that they are just a freak of nature that developed from some dinosur poo poo
put me out of my misery, is this a made-up DiSer? Shirely?
it was starting to get a bit hairy!
