The Canadian ice cream chain “Sweet Jesus” was seeking to sneak across the border when some folks caught sight of their name. “Are they really calling themselves that?” they asked?
Yes, sir. They sure are. The name-spotters complained, but the company says its not going to change it for anybody. Sure, its blasphemous. But it’s all in good fun, they say. Plus, why should this poor ice cream company be picked on? There’s lots of blasphemy about these days. And doesn’t the thought of gooey caramel sauce make you smile?
Maybe we should forget the name. Most of us can’t be stone throwers here anyway, not when phrases like that have slipped past our own incisors. Mea maxima culpa. Forget what they call themselves. It’s the ads that creep you out.
New & Improved Satanism!
They often feature an upside down cross for the “t” in Sweet, and sometimes a devilish lighting bolt for the first “s” in the name of our Lord. A cup on one ad featured just these two tokens alone inside a blooming black rose, complete with thorns.
Another cup features them on the back of shaking hands. Bowels come emblazoned with the inverted cross, bolt, pyramids, and all-seeing eyes. The signs—sigils?—are on a coffin, too, with a hand slithering out.
It’s only a coincidence, perhaps, that you should click here to read the rest.
