Jesus Banned from Christian Easter Advertisement – Too Offensive

A church in Australia was told to remove the word “Jesus” from its signs ahead of Easter Sunday.

It was deemed too offensive.

The Daily Mail reported:

A church has been forced to remove the word ‘Jesus’ from its signs ahead of Easter because it has been causing offence.

Elim Church on the Central Coast in New South Wales paid for digital signs to be displayed at Erina Fair shopping centre reading ‘the greatness of His Power’.

Pastor Martin Duffy told 2GB radio that shopping centre manager Lendlease objected to the signs and forced them to be changed to read ‘Risen Christ’ instead of ‘Jesus’.

‘The phrase ‘Jesus is alive’… is the core message of the Christian faith and what Easter’s really all about,’ he said.

‘It’s a good message. I think there’s a minority group out there that are constantly distorting the message of Jesus Christ. It’s just going on and on.’

Elim Church is a West Gosford evangelical church located north of Sydney.
