Toronto-Based Ice Cream Parlours Serve Up Blasphemy
Blasphemy is the order of the day at a Toronto-based chain of ice cream parlours. Founded by Andrew Richmond and Amin Todai in 2015, this new and growing chain goes by the name “Sweet Jesus”. There are already a dozen locations, mainly in the Greater Toronto Area, although plans are underway to expand across Canada and the US.
Choosing the name of our Lord for a brand of soft-serve ice cream is totally offensive and revolting. Even if this were some innocent faux-pas, it would still be unacceptable! However, this is anything but a mere mistake. Both in their promotional materials and menu selection, it is plain to see that Richmond and Todai have every intention of mocking Christ and Christianity. If anything could qualify as “hate speech”, this is it!
Three of their ice cream flavours are called “Red Rapture”, “Hella Nutella”, and “Sweet Baby Jesus”. A picture on their web site shows their ice cream in the place of Jesus in a Nativity Scene. Another picture displays an angel worshipping their ice cream. They say “Thou shalt follow” their social media feed. Other more hideous pictures, some involving children, have also emerged, according to Activist Mommy.
In addition, it is noteworthy that the first “s” in the “Jesus” in their company logo mimics the Nazi symbol for Hitler’s paramilitary organization, the “SS”.
The message is clear: “Sweet Jesus” is all about trashing Christianity and mocking the saving work of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is deeply offensive and an outright attack on the Christian community of Canada!
Could you imagine the outrage and fallout from within the Muslim community if Richmond and Todai had chosen “Sweet Mohammed” for the name of their ice cream parlours!
We are calling on Richmond, Todai, and their parent company “Monarch & Misfits” to issue an apology for their blasphemy. We want them to consider how they have attacked the Christian community, and how they have attacked God. We are also asking them to immediately change their name and branding to eliminate every instance of mockery toward our Lord Jesus.
