Pregnant nun ice cream advert banned for ‘mockery’

An ice cream company banned from using an advert displaying a pregnant nun has vowed to position similar posters in London in time for the Pope’s visit.

Antonio Federici’s advert showed a pregnant nun eating ice cream in a church, together with the strap line “immaculately conceived”.

The Advertising Standards Authority has ordered it to be discontinued, saying it mocked Roman Catholic beliefs.[but In case of Muhammad,Its Freedom of Speech]

Antonio Federici says it will now put up new posters near Westminster Abbey.

Pope Benedict XVI will visit Westminster Abbey on Friday, before holding Mass at Westminster Cathedral on Saturday.

Antonio Federici, a UK-based company, has yet to reveal what image will be portrayed in the new advert, saying only that it would be “a continuation of the theme”.

A spokeswoman for the company said the new image intended to “defy” the ban from the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA).

She added: “We are in the process of securing a series of billboards close to and along the planned route of the Pope’s cavalcade around Westminster Cathedral”.

A spokesman for the ASA said its rulings “must be followed and we are taking steps to ensure Antonio Federici do so”.

He added: “We do not comment on the likely compliance of ads that have not yet appeared.

“However, we are continuing to conduct work behind the scenes, including with the advertiser, to ensure they comply with the rules.”

Defending the banned nun advert, Antonio Federici said the idea of “conception” represented the development of their ice cream.

It added that the use of religious imagery represented its strong feeling towards its product.

The firm said it also wished to “comment on and question, using satire and gentle humour, the relevance and hypocrisy of religion and the attitudes of the church to social issues”.

The banned advert was featured in editions of The Lady and Grazia magazines.

The ASA said in its ruling: “We considered the use of a nun pregnant through immaculate conception was likely to be seen as a distortion and mockery of the beliefs of Roman Catholics.

“We concluded that to use such an image in a lighthearted way to advertise ice cream was likely to cause serious offence to readers, particularly those who practice the Roman Catholic faith.”

The publishers of The Lady said it had received eight complaints and that it had been a “mis judgement” to have published .

Grazia said it considered that the advert was lighthearted and did not mock any religious groups.

The ASA banned another advert for Antonio Federici in July 2009 that showed a priest and a nun appearing as if they were about to kiss.



Philosopher, Orator, Apostle, Legislator, Warrior, Conqueror of ideas, the Restorer of rational beliefs, the preacher of a religion without images, the founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one heavenly Empire, that is Muhammad. As …

regards all standards [I repeat, ‘ALL’] by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask, “Is there any man greater than he?” (Alphonse Lamartine, French poet)

Head of State as well as Church, he was Caesar and Pope in One; but he was Pope without the Pope’s pretensions, and Caesar without the legions of Caesar, without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without police force, without a fixed revenue. If ever a man ruled by right Divine, it was Muhammad, for he had all the powers without their supports. He cared not for the dressings of power. The simplicity of his private life was in keeping with his public life.”

Reverend Bosworth Smith in “Muhammad and Muhammadanism” ]

How many mate? tell us smart alec, tell us if ur all that smart.

//”Fortunately catholics have a sence of humour, unlike some other religion !!”//…

lol…ha, ha, ha, ha…..nice one …… your crap comments just gave me a good laugh.

Well, Unfortunately people like you are wasting the hell out of your lifetimes commenting and insulting. Why don’t you just turn around and look at your own side and focus on YOUR business and on YOUR religion.


You didn’t demonstrated becoz you love money and this world more than honor of God.

No,Muslim is supporting killing in libya, Afghanistan,pakistan ..


Sense of humour and respect are two different things. Also if someone posted an embarrassing video or picture of you on Facebook your, “sense of humour,” wouldn’t be the same. This my friend is called Hypocrisy.



“Respect”???? where is islam’s respect for sanctity of life? or respect for non muslims beliefs? or respect for apostates of islam? or respect for women in islam? or respect for other people’ freedom of speach? etc etc
BTW, If someone posted an embarrassing picture of me I would love it. I will probably have a good laugh and a glass of wine to celebrate.
Also, I would rather have hypocrisy than killing innocent people because some brainwashed muslims believe that islam or the prophet or the koran, have been insulted.


Are u really a muslim? the prophet (saw) said that when u see something that is distasteful or against Islam being done in front of u, u can change it with ur hand (if u are able to), if not change it with ur tongue (if u are able to), if not deteste this action in ur heart, and the latter is the weakest form in faith.
and drinking ur wine?!?!?!?! whats up with that?////


NO I am not a muslim.
I am so greatful that I was not born into the stupid cult.
I was born a catholic but when I realised that man created god(s) I gave up the stupid idea and religion altogether. I have better things to do with my life than pray & go to church.
That is why I cannot understand the mentality of muslims who pray 5 times a day, mosque on Friday, get at at some stupid hour to bang their heads and lift their asses to the heavens, stop eating during the day for a month (but gorge themselves at night!!!), follow the teachings of a pedophile, read the most contradictary, hate filled and inaccurate book (koran), allow groups calling themselves muslims to slaughter innocent people DAILY all over the world. (they are even trying to kill a14 year old girl BECAUSE SHE WANTS TO GO TO SCHOOL…WOW WHAT A THREAT !!!)
They complain about Americans being in muslim land but they themseves are happy to live in ALL other countries INCLUDING America.
Hope you take note of what I have said and maybe, just maybe you may save yourself from the lies of islam.


lies in islam… haters need lies… not lovers1
