You would think they would have caught on after the Great Sock Debacle of '13...

Please do not offer my god a peanut.

At least it wasn't for Ganesh brand peanuts, although that would be cool.

If Christians can tolerate a crucifix in urine, I think Ganesh on a bedspread would be no big deal.  Besides, aren't they non-violent?  Who cares.

That's a shame because it goes stunningly with the Prophet Mohammed bedsheet set.

Pfft.  Christians couldn't even handle a Jesus magnet at Urban Outfitters:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus_Dress_Up#Response

Nobody tell them about Ganesh Google Shopping.

Please do not offer my god a blanket.

His followers pride causes them to be outraged about this bedspread.

Hypocrites : not just for Christianity anymore.

Sounds like a lot of pointless hand-wringing to me

Northern India. It is plagued by sectarian violence between Muslims and Hindus.

Thank you for desecrating my God! Please come again!

Urban Outfitters probably knew what they were doing, that it would be controversial, and wanted the publicity.

Supposedly, these guys didn't:

At least it wasn't a version with a swastika.

That's Gujarat. It is on the southern half of the Pakistan/India border. Where all those Muslims were slaughtered on that train a couple years ago. It is an interesting place.

I'm just picking on your spelling, though, and have nothing of use to add.

They're lucky they didn't have any obstacles in front of them.

So should all the atheists be offended by plain white socks devoid of any design?
