Cradle of Filth shirt banned in NZ
The “Chief Censor” of New Zealand, Bill Hastings, has banned the infamous “Jesus is a Cunt” t-shirt.
Itâ€™s illegal to possess it, itâ€™s illegal to deal with it in any way. Sell it, rent it, hire it, give it
Says the American accented Mr Hastings on this 3News video.
The news was greeted with joy by John Mills, president of NZ’s Society for Promotion of Community Standards Inc, (SPCS) – the Kiwi equivalent of Saudi Arabia’s Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice.
According to Mills, the t-shirt is â€œgrossly objectionable due to its obscene contentâ€ and â€œcompletely cuntifies the central figure of Christianityâ€. I mean “vilifies”.
The ruling states, unjustifiably:
A fair interpretation of the messages conveyed by this T-shirt is that Christians should be vilified for their religious beliefs, and that women, including chaste and celibate women, cannot stop themselves engaging in sexual activityâ€¦
Who knew New Zealand had become a theocracy?
