DENMARK: Jesus Flip-Flops Withdrawn After Outcry
A Danish supermarket chain has been forced to withdraw a controversial range of sandals featuring images of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary after scores of complaints.
Bosses of the Coop chain acted after angry bishops, priests, Protestant ministers and Christians reacted angrily to the sale of the $9 flip-flops at the shop in Kvickly.
Store chiefs said they had sold around 4,000 pairs before they were taken off the shelves on Wednesday.
