A bakery in Derbyshire has received a letter threatening legal action for naming its cheese sandwiches 'Cheesus Christ'.
The Bridge Bakehouse in Whaley Bridge is now taking the threat with a pinch of salt after realising it has no validity.
On the 13th June, it received what it called a "bizarre blackmail letter" from an anonymous person purporting to be supported by a local church and legal charity Christian Concern.
The letter appeared to have been printed on Christian Concern branded paper and claims to be contacting the bakery on behalf of "a number of members of the Parish of Whaley Bridge Holy Trinity church".
The letter then explains the importance of protecting Christian from discrimination and adds "the slant on the name Jesus Christ is an insult to Christianity and is seen in the eyes of the law as discrimination against Christians".
It then instructs the bakery to remove 'Cheesus Christ' sandwich from its menu, issue a public apology, as well as make a donation of £300 to the Holy Trinity Church within 30 working days of the letter.
After investigating, the bakery found out that the threats had nothing to do with the church or Christian Concern.
"It seems it was from an anonymous disgruntled member of the local community," the bakery said in a social media post.
The letter comes after The Bridge Bakehouse said someone tried to cover up the 'Cheesus Christ' sandwich on their outdoor menu board with white paint.
It said in a social media post: "To whoever has tried to cover up the 'Cheesus Christ' sandwich on our outdoor menu board with white paint can you please not? We really can't be bothered contacting the council to check the CCTV and if it wasn't done in the dead of night by someone dressed like The Mask of Zorro we are going to be highly disappointed. #cheesesandwichgate"
The bakery's menu is full of creatively named sandwiches.
They include a chicken caesar sandwich called 'Are You Chicken Me Out?' and a roast beef sandwich called 'In One Ear and Out the Udder'.
Premier has contacted The Bridge Bakehouse and Christian Concern for a comment.
