BIBLICAL QUOTES REMOVED FROM LOO ROLLS

A Finnish toilet paper company has withdrawn part of a line of printed loo rolls displaying Biblical quotes. Metsa Tissue received complaints from church leaders after launching the Lambi brand to ‘spread love and joy’.

According to Christian Post the tissue was intended to feature ‘witty quotes and philosophical messages’ but accidentally included Biblical quotes, which included 'For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.' From the Gospel of Matthew.

Laila Riksaasen Dahl, the bishop of Tunsberg said, 'This is bad taste and shows lack of respect... Bible verses do not belong on a roll of toilet paper.'

Company spokeswoman Christina von Trampe told the press, 'People like to read small, happy messages while sitting on the toilet... The vast majority of the feedback has been positive. Our intention was to spread love and joy, not religious messages.'

Metsa Tissue will continue the line without the religious references.
