Hell arrives at heaven’s door

Article in the local paper on the juxtapositioning of electronic ads for Hell’s Pizzas with the Bible College of New Zealand and the local funeral home. Hell arrives at heaven’s door – Auckland news on While the pizzas taste good, they don’t get my custom because I think there’s enough problems in the world without someone glorifying (and commodifying) those problems as pizza flavours. (Still, I imagine it would make a nice case study for someone doing the meat offered to idols and freedom in Christ themes in 1 Cor).

I saw something similar last year at the prize-giving for the kids’ soccer club. The club was supported by both Hell’s Pizzas and the local Baptist church trust (among other sponsors) but they’d put those two up next to each other on the sponsors’ signage.
