Conservative Catholic campaigners in Poland have claimed an energy drink branded "Demon" can promote evil and lead to the "destruction of human souls".

Furious with the drink's arrival on the Polish market one website, entitled Satanism Shall Not Pass, said that its advertising campaign will lead to "billboards dripping with Satanism", and has added its voice to calls for a boycott of all products made by Agros-Nova, the drink's producer.

Demon, the website, claimed, was "promoting evil, atrocities and the destruction of human souls." Franciszek Kucharczak, editor of the Gosc Niedzielny, a respected religious magazine warned: "We have to fight against evil. We cannot keep quiet and let young people be absorbed into destructive ideals."

Ok, so this is an energy drink like "Red Bull" here in the US (?). Obviously, the "Demon" name is an attempt to be *cool* and appeal to young heavy/death metal fans. Sheesh...all the fuss over it is just going to make it more appealing to the rebellious youngsters!

Ya that's going to work.  lol  How do you get a kid to buy something make if forebidden. The church might as well go out and sell the stuff.  (Take note, might be a good stock buy.)

It's already here.  Sacramental Wine* it's called.  It's free, cures all guilt and is extremely addictive, in my experience.

(*Only available to pilgrims in small measures but drunk copiously by the Clergy.  Seeing as they are likely to have more guilt than the rest of us.)

:yes:
