An ice cream brand based in Toronto that is being accused of blasphemy by Christians is attempting to further expand into the United States.

The brand, called Sweet Jesus, has nineteen shops in and around Toronto and one based in Baltimore, MD according to their website. According to Fox News, the company would like to expand more. However, some are offended by the business.

First off, you have the name 'Sweet Jesus.' As a Christian, we know, you should not take the Lord's name in vain. The company has posted a response to this criticism on their website saying:

Second, a lot of us are offended by a company using the Lord to sell something... especially something as pedestrian as soft serve ice cream.

Is this company Santanic? I don't know, but I doubt it. Is their name in bad taste? Without a doubt. Is their branding in question? They've gone too far. At least the upside down cross is where they cross the line for me...  So what happens if Sweet Jesus decides to put an ice cream parlor in Shreveport/Bossier? Would you go? After all, it's so good, it's supposed to 'Bless your mouth!' Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
