Kiwi church mocks God, Jesus, Bible.

(click ad) With an ad that would certainly give Pope Ratzi Grinch face, St. Matthew-in-the-city, an Anglican church in Auckland, New Zealand, cheekily skewers the Feeding the Multitude miracle. Judging by their website, St. Matts looks about as unstuffy as a church can get. Ad by M&C Saatchi Auckland, via.
Previously in church advertising
:
• Satan's billboard: "I hate church."
• The sublime Watchtower brochures.
• NYC church erects most depressing subway poster ever.

Doesn't surprise me in the slightest -- the Anglicans (called Episcopalians in the US) are about as open as Christians can get. They're the ones that just sanctioned same-sex marriages in the US.

I love this ad, actually. So simple and it makes you want to look twice. Not that it would sell me on church, mind...

Them St Matthew fellows are cheeky wee blighters. Here's a billboard they were running a few months ago that mystified my companion and I when we were visiting Auckland.
