M&S bans customers using the words 'Christ' and 'Jesus Christ' in messages when they are ordering flowers online - but jihad is okay
by Lydia Willgress
The words 'Christ' and 'Jesus Christ' have been placed on a list of banned words by Marks & Spencer and cannot be used in gift messages.
Customers buying a bunch of flowers who try to add a free message containing them are prevented from completing their order.
An on-screen notification, which pops up if any blocked words are entered, reads: 'Sorry, there's something in your message we can't write.'
