Marks & Spencer forced to remove 'Jesus Christ' from list of words banned in gift messages
by Scott Campbell
Marks & Spencer was today forced to remove 'Jesus Christ' from a list of words banned in gift messages after a furious backlash from customers.
The retailer had added the term to a list of banned words to prevent abuse – despite allowing 'Buddha' and 'Mohammed'.
Customers who used it were prevented from ordering and warned "sorry, there's something in your message we can't write" by a pop-up notification.
