Tell ‘Sweet Jesus’ ice cream: I will boycott until you change blasphemous name.

  • 7539

IMPORTANT NOTE: After signing the petition you will be given the option to mail a physical postcard to 'Sweet Jesus' ice cream chain to let them know their name mocks Christ and that you will be boycotting their stores.

A Canadian ice-cream chain called “Sweet Jesus” mocks the Christian faith in its business name and in its advertisement.

One ad on the company’s website shows a Nativity Scene, but instead of Baby Jesus, there ’s an ice-cream cone. Many of their ads are replete with cherished Christian and Catholic symbols that are used to mock faith, including a rosary, a crucifix with a corpus, and angels.

Faithful Christians follow the Second Commandment about not taking the name of God in vain. This means that God’s name should be used respectfully, as in prayer or in blessing. Anything else is misusing his name. Christians believe that Jesus is God and his name is holy. St. Paul in his letter to the Philippians put it this way: “At the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow.”

“The entire marketing concept of their company is to mock the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,” wrote Elizabeth Johnston about the company on her blog Activist Mommy in January.

There are also Satanic symbols interspersed throughout their ads, such as upside-down crosses, lightning bolts, skulls, roaring wildcats, and images that suggest vampires and blood.

While sometimes Christians deserve scorn for their moral failures, Our Lord Jesus Christ does not. Jesus Christ deserves honor, love, and respect.


Tell the “Sweet Jesus” chain that you will boycott its ice cream until it changes its name and apologizes to Christians for mocking Jesus’ name.
