Media Watch Watch – Woolworths, Sainsbury remove Springer DVD (lotsa links and comments here; go see)

Independent – Stores bow to Christians and ban Jerry Springer DVD: Major retail chains have bowed to pressure from a tiny fringe Christian group by withdrawing copies of a DVD of Jerry Springer: The Opera from stores around the UK. Woolworths and Sainsbury have both taken the unprecedented step of removing the film from shelves because of “customer” concerns about the content of the musical, released three weeks ago. Sainsbury has admitted it received just 10 complaints.

Dear Sirs,

In a typical week, we will spend 60-90 pounds on groceries in your Godalming store. For the next four weeks, we shall be shopping elsewhere.

There is no action you can take to reverse this decision; I only hope that next time you will think twice before caving in to tin-pot pressure groups.

Dear Sirs,

It greatly disturbs me that you would be so gutless and so witless as to cave in to a ragtag bunch of extremists who not only have the gall to call themselves Christians, but also claim that they are the voice of Christianity.

As a family, we would normally spend about 120 pounds in your Godalming and Guildford stores over the Christmas period. This year, we shall be taking our money elsewhere.

There is no action you can take to reverse this decision; the damage is done.

Dear Santa,

Please don’t bother sending Stephen Green another lump of coal this Christmas:

1) The fires of hell are sure to keep him warm in the millennia to come, so he has no need for fossil fuels
2) I doubt that he believes in fossils at any rate

Regards,

Tim Ireland

Sainsburys and Woolworths had best watch themselves; once Green and his little gang have finished licking the blood from their lips, they’re sure to take a closer look at the DVD shelves in these stores and decide that this is only the beginning:
“Very Offensive” Films – ChristianSpotlight.com
“Extremely Offensive” Films – ChristianSpotlight.com

UPDATE – Oi! Stephen! You missed a spot!

UPDATE – That *was* a link showing that Woolworths still sold the JS:TO soundtrack online. Within a few hours, the purchasing description was changed to read; “This product is not currently available. Please check back later.”

I checked back later (6 Dec)… and the page was gone. Can anyone hear clucking?
