Red Bull Pulls "Jesus" Ad after Complaints

I wonder if Red Bull has a "Muhammad" ad in the works. No? Could it be because they would have to spend millions on security after releasing a Muhammad ad?

But we should always remember that all religions teach the same values.

Loving the antithiest comments on this, on youtube, boy do these twits have a serious lack of Biblical and Godly knowledge, actualy most of the "Christians" commenting there have absolutly no idea what they are talking about either. So many comments, so little knowledge. shame really.

well what is telling is that muslims claim and are told that they should not make distinctions between the prophets of allah. yet here they are watching a Jesus commercial and arent outraged in the least bit. if this was a muhammad ad, guess what would happen.

btw David. Did Red Bull issue an apology yet? since we are in apologizing mode and all. or do we only find it appropriate to apologize when offending gays and muslims?

I never see Christians move masses claiming Christianity will rule the earth and other religion's women, namely Jewish women, will be taken by the Christians, when Jesus is portrayed as so. I have even seen movies where Jesus is hanging around with topless women. I never see Christians trying to bomb out other religions. But the moment anything related to pedophile Mohammed is thought of Moslems are on the road to blow up people. Shows so much of the evolution of religions claiming same ancestors. And I am no Christian.

Since I'm not a theist, I'm not seeing what's so offensive about this ad. And I assume christians were the ones who complained.

It really wasn't so over the top.

Yes, mind you if the very letter M H D, had appeared in something similar.....muslims would have burned Red bull headquarters to the ground.

They should make a Muslim version. Muhammad drinks a poisoned Red Bull given to him by a Jewess, and he dies a horrible agonizing death... but with wings!

His Allah couldn't save him and neither could Red Bull!

People note that Christians don't riot over small insults. I like to point toward the mocking satire of De Spectaculis by Tertullian. Different motivation to violence (the original was about Christians wanting to attend the gladiatorial games) but useful concept. Anyone who wants to revel in blood shed against those who slight your faith just has to wait for judgement day when they will get all the blood, justice, and action they could ever want. You won't even have to dirty your hands!

Maybe one should make modernized versions of his writings from a vernacular translation as opposed to the somewhat contrived highhorse ones that are everywhere. It'd be a nice demonstration to internet Muslims/atheists that they aren't some new breed of superhuman thinkers with new ideas.

HHAHAHAH! Awesome idea. Unfortunately those spineless liberal fundamentalists over at Red Bull will not touch it with a 20 ft pole!

I hope that's sarcasm.

discusting. They are mocking my Lord. Right now I don't care about Mohammed.

Red Bull can shove their product up their rectum, I won't be buying their products again.
