The global Christian community spikes outrage towards Briton’s leading bakery chain store who boasts of over 1800 outlets following a replacement of baby Jesus in a manger with a sausage roll in their 2017 christmas advent calendar.
It contains a variety of festive pictures offering many delights such as pastries hanging on a Christmas tree. It all sounds appealing until, the chain’s daring wacked and arrogant sense of humor tempered with one of the Christian religion’s most iconic fingers in the story of Christmas, the ‘new born King and the three wise men’.
The original scene best known and annually celebrated depicts three wise men who travelled from the East to Jerusalem to see the new born kind to worship him in a manger.
The bakery, tempered with this scene. In its enactment the son of God in a manger is replaced with a half- eaten sausage roll and the three Wiseman surrounding it in worship. They dared one of the most iconic figures and scenes in the Christian religion celebrated particularly during the festive season.
Christians and often none Christian turn to church in ore of the Wisemen who were chosen among many to carry the premonition and witnessed the birth of the new coming king. This arrogance and ridiculing action propagated an ongoing outrage among Christians who vowed to boycott.
The bakery apologized by stating that, its intention was to promote their advent calendar Merry Greggmas, which offers good deals for its customers such as: gift cards, coupons and food vouchers during the December month.
Rev Mark Edwards said, “ to replace Jesus with a half-eaten sausage is just going to the lowest common denominator, and I’m disappointed with Greggs. I would have thought Greggs was better than that, and I think if they tried that with any other faith you can imagine the outcry there would be, and rightly so.”
Expressions on social media platforms
James Crimmins said, “Twitter Jesus fed 5000 once, #Greggs feed millions every day but they don’t go on about it.”
Tom Skidmore said, “Twitter Jesus was born over 2000 years ago so can anyone stand up and say he wasn’t actually a sausage roll? Bring me that proof or else I’m convinced he was a warm pastry treat.”
Charlie Kostromin said,” maybe the lord will make the sausage roll into many and feed the British people who are starving in this country.”
Please boycott@greggs official to protest against its sick anti-Christian advent calendar. What cowards this people are they wouldn’t dare insult other religions! “Says Simon Richards. Back
