Tesco removes card from shelves after complaints from Christians

The front cover read 'Time for a sports car and an affair'.

Lesley Smith, who works for Christian charity Care for the Family, took action after spotting the greeting card on the shelf.

Speaking to the Christian Institute, she said: "When I saw this card with its message encouraging an act that causes such pain and destruction in families, under the guise of 'humour' I just thought no - not funny!

"I wanted Tesco to know that I, for one, was not in agreement and it wasn't ok - I didn't want this message to be normalised."

After receiving several complaints, the supermarket confirmed it's no longer on sale.

In a statement to Premier, Tesco said: "We've listened to customer feedback and will have removed this card from our range."

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
