So now mockery is forbidden in the UK?

This is utterly pathetic!  An ice cream manufacturer created a rather splendid advert showing a pregnant nun eating his ice cream, and the Advertising Standards Authority has banned the ad as likely to offend Roman Catholics.

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.

They've vowed to come up with something special for Ratzinger's visit.  I can't wait!
