Stupid Ban on Veritas Ad

A friend challenged me to post about this as it's to do with "the other side", but the truth is I'm for free speech in general and I can't see any reason why Veritas should not be allowed to advertise openly.

Publisher Veritas was barred from promoting religious presents and urging people to buy a gift with meaning under strict rules policed by the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland.

The watchdog claimed mentioning Christmas during an on-air advert and reading out the website address could cause offense.


What we have here is a case of the seemingly most important right - The right NOT to be offended - trumping all other rights. It's absolute madness! If someone (who?) is offended by an advert mentioning Christmas they can go fuck themselves as far as I'm concerned.

(Jesus it feels weird siding the loons)
