Extremist British Christians claim an infestation of mice in a Tesco store is God's punishment for the supermarket's support of gays.
Tesco has seen sales and profits drop recently and the Christian Voice, an anti-gay prayer and campaigning organization, has said the decline is punishment for the UK supermarket chain's decision to sponsor a family area at London’s Pride celebrations.
Now the group is claiming that an infestation of mice at a Tesco Metro in London's Covent Garden is another sign of God's vengeance for the store's pro-gay stance.
'Nothing has gone right for Tesco since they decided to support gay pride. Their only hope is to repent of that decision and put their trust in God,' wrote Christian Voice blogger Stephen Green.
In January, the Guardian reported Green as saying: ‘Significantly, we prayed for a drop in their share price, which...has been answered on what you could describe as a Biblical scale.
‘I now call on Tesco to see sense before their company is ruined. Don't display the arrogance of Pharoah. Withdraw the grant to gay pride.’
