Hi all,

I find this a very telling article today: http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Woolies-bans-Christian-mags-20101020

A taste:

"Christians are threatening to boycott Woolworths stores after a decision to no longer sell Christian magazines.
This means readers of magazines such as Lig, Juig, Joy and Lééf will have to buy them elsewhere. "

Threatening to boycott Woolworths should not be in the equation, they should just accept and move on. Well done Woolies. I tell you, every single Christian woman spends 90% of her life (and her salary) in Woolies. You won't see them turing a blind eye to Woolies because of this, they will continue shopping! :)

it will blow over. the women are too friggin lazy to walk into checkers and have to make white sauce from scratch.
if they want to make a fuss about the xtian magazines, then woolies can bring in some porn. and see how the xtians women are gonna have a hard time to keep their men OUT of the woolies.
arent these xtian magazines allso not predominently afrikaans? maybe they just dont sell as many magazines, and they dont make money off them.
whatever the reason, hurrah! i knew there was a reason i liked woolies. apart from the chocolate mousse pudding, and the rotissiere chicken, and the prawn chips and the....

"Ban" is too strong a word. As Mefiante said in the other thread, it's most likely just the pulling of an unprofitable item. It's been fun following the reactions though, especially on the WW Facebook page. Blogged about it: http://synapses.co.za/woolworths-offends-christians/

Haha, it's hilarious how the atheists and trolls have invaded that wall.

As normal the christians are foaming at the mouth running in circles, hands waving above their heads

What is the big fuss, it's just a magazine, and I for one will be glad not to see that crud on the shelf.
