Irish Billboards of Gambling Jesus Pulled
By staff
Paddy Power withdrew a billboard campaign on Wednesday that portrayed Jesus and his disciples at the Last Supper table — and playing poker and roulette alongside the slogan, 'There's a place for fun and games.'

At all 89 locations across Dublin, the offending billboards were replaced Wednesday with new Paddy Power ads that said: 'There's a place for fun and games. Apparently this isn't it.'

Paddy Power acknowledged they had taken a 'load of flak' over the advert: “It's a tongue-in-cheek situation - people aren't supposed to take it as seriously as some people seem to be.”
