Stroke of Genius
Fine them for not going to church ha ha, wicked but genius none the less.
The UK's ads watchdog has slapped down the London Dungeon for running an animated ad on the tube which showed Mary Tudor, England's last Roman Catholic Queen, morphing into a flesh-eating zombie. The ad ran on digital billboards on the London Underground, with the text "New for 2010 Bloody Mary: Killer Queen At the London …
Ad supervision should be limited to accuracy of product claims. Besides this old queen is REALLY old, and dead, so no false product claims are involved.
All these nanny agencies should be either eliminated or have their powers reduced, along with all those Waana-be-a-Plod community whatevers. No wonder government crippling the taxpayers of the UK.
Flesh eating - literal belief in transubstancination when taking the eucharist.
Body of christ? No thanks, I've filled up on nuts
The zombie part could be aimed at an adherant of any given docterine...and keeping it topical... who does legitimately deserve sucession rights in supposed democracy?
I don't quite understand the way this article concentrates on religion. And putting it in the title? This is a story about a scary advert. Why would Catholics complain, or even care? Did the writer grow up in Northern Ireland or some unevolved bit of Scotland where issues such as which branch of Christianity people believe in are even thought about?
Yeah, she killed a bunch of people. So did other monarchs, for various reasons. We should be glad that "Strangely, there were no complaints from Roman Catholics". Is that 'strange'? It reflects well on modern Britain, where we've thankfully left that sort of mumbo-jumbo behind.
The religious slant is in the ad - she most likely was not randomly selected to be a flesh-eating zombie of all things - there is a joke there. And that allusion to a Catholic being a flesh-eating monster would be offensive to some Catholics. Google "transubstantiation" for more details.
Not saying I'm bothered by it - just saying.
Since I'm sure that everyone in Britain is perfectly well aware that Henry VIII didn't receive a miraculous vision from God telling him that the Catholic Church had fallen away from the truth, or that he came to this conclusion from deep study of the Scripture - but, instead, the Church of England was founded for purely political reasons, I don't understand why the people of Britain haven't, by now, returned to authentic forms of Christian worship.
If they feel there is something lacking about the Roman Catholic Church, they could always become Eastern Orthodox, or Protestants - instead of belonging to an imitation of the Catholic Church created by a tyrant - something that pretends to be a church, but is merely run by politicians.
