‘Jesus got hammered for his sins, you can too. Open from 12 Good Friday and ALL long weekend,’ the caption said. 

 Many users gave the burger bar a one star rating following it’s insensitive post.

‘Absolute filth. Rats and other rodents clearly visible in the kitchen area. Staff ignoring waiting patrons and management drinking alcohol on shift. What looks like a cool funky place the reality is pure filth by its establishment and employees,’ one review said.

The restaurant was criticised for it’s lack of respect by many because of its post about opening hours over Easter

One person posted: ‘Disrespectful!!! Disrespecting a religion is a very bad way of marketing your business! Shame on you!’

‘Disgusting content, making a mockery out of religion to promote our business. Stingy burgers and really poor customer service. Congratulations on destroying your business,’ a reviewer commented.

Another said: ‘Staff are disrespectful, rude and insight hatred. They should focus on the menu to attract attention not rude posts to grab attention. I definitely recommend walking straight passed the door.’

One group claimed they were organising a rosary prayer session to be held at the restaurant on Good Friday if the post wasn’t removed.

Mary’s has since taken down the post and Daily Mail Australia have contacted the restaurant for comment.

A Sydney pub burger joint has been branded “disgusting” and “disrespectful” after posting a controversial joke about Jesus on their Facebook page.

Mary’s Newtown shared a picture of Jesus holding a cigarette and a beer yesterday, along with the caption: “Jesus got hammered for his sins, you can too.”

The post was flooded with thousands of angry comments, and the pub later deleted the picture from their page.

According to Yahoo News, the Orthodox Christianity Facebook page encouraged its followers to post nasty things about the business in retaliation to the post.

 

“Brothers and sisters, PLEASE give this place a bad rating, they are Mocking our Lord Jesus Christ,” the group posted.

Since then the pub has been inundated with negative reviews — the majority posted within a few hours of each other.

Only a few reviews cited the post about Jesus as the reason for the bad rating.

“Mary’s Newtown was my local burger joint (being that it’s only up the road from my place) until today. I am extremely disgusted and appalled by the distasteful and disrespectful advertising for the Easter period. You’ve lost a customer (and probably a lot more) by that ignorant stunt,” one read.

“For you to post something disrespectful about Jesus when the majority of your clients are believers. It’s a kick in the guts. You lost me as a client,” another said.

One person wrote: “ They should focus on the menu to attract attention not rude posts to grab attention.”

Mary’s co-owner, Jake Smyth, told The Daily Telegraph the post wasn’t meant to offend anyone.

 

“We took it down because people started to make threats of rape and murder,” he said.

 

Editor Comment:

They didn’t meant to offend? — What?

The burger joint has clearly no idea the significance of anything sacred or decent. They have no scruples.

Jesus was whipped, beaten, and nailed to the cross for OUR sins.

They know nothing of Jesus Christ, but some guy, a mere religious figure who just happens to pops up in our calendar around twice a year and can help market their business — Deplorable!!

But perhaps they are to be most pitied, due to such appallingly ignorant thinking?
