It's official: Jesus doesn't heal cancer (at least in New Zealand)
Finally, some good news. The New Zealand Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) made a no-brainer of a decision earlier this week when they determined that a church billboard reading, “Jesus Heals Cancer,” violates advertising standards.
The ASA complaints board acknowledged the church had no intention of causing offence with the billboard and instead wanted to provide a message of hope. However, it upheld the complaints, ruling the advertisement had “neither been prepared nor displayed with the due sense of social responsibility required” and therefore breached the code of ethics.
