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.’

Mice, and other pests do occasionally turn up in places with lots of food. If your god wants to impress me he needs to send in packs of rabid hyenas that spit acid, and shoot laser beams out of their eyes.
Hell, he sent bears to rip-apart, and eat children for making fun of some bald asshole who was afflicted with unwarranted self-importance. Are we to believe that he hates children who act like...well children, more than gays? He must have hated Elisha too, otherwise he wouldn't have been bald to begin with.
If gays are so bad, why doesn't he make them all bald, and maybe involuntarily shit out of their eyes constantly? Instead he curses them with, I don't know, being a more financially successful demographic, than average. That'll fucking show 'em!
Also, the machine shop I work in has rats. It's completely infested. I've never been in a shop that didn't have them out the ass. I guess God just hates metal-work, and the people who do it. He is admittedly weak to iron after all.

So I guess our rat infestation last summer was caused by our pro-gay rights family, instead of our first theory: Having open bags of livestock food in the barn.

Religious people really are the masters of rainmaking themselves, aren't they?
"A guy says that if you pay him, he can make it rain. You pay him. If and when it rains, he takes the credit. If and when it doesn't, he finds reasons for you to pay him more."
(Kudos to you if you know where that quote is from.)

"would someone in the UK please buy an extra packet of Rich Tea Biscuits from Tesco on my behalf in order to support them against the anti-gay nuts?"
Or even a packet of Ginger Nuts from Tesco's on your behalf, in order to support them against the anti-gay Rich Teas...?! X3
Can't beat a Ginger nut as a dunker in a cup of tea. That, and Digestives. Trust me, no packet of plain chocolate Hob Nobs is safe from me! :9

I'm sure it would be really difficult for some fundies to let loose a 'plague' of mice inside a store. That might take them all of an hour to pull off. Praise Mouse Jebus!

Stephen, you're not Pat Robertson's illegitimate kid, and trying to out-radical him won't make him give you his money when he finally kicks it.

I strongly believe that Tesco's support of Gay Pride (Communism by any other name) is also responsible for the drought, hosepipe ban, subsequent downpour and flooding. We must stop these idolatrous gay communist athest mugger scoundrels before they bring down God's permanent wrath upon great green England (birthplace of Christ himself!).!

That was an excellent impersonation of Mr. Green, I must say.

It used to be frogs falling from the sky. Now all that Yehovah can manage is a mouse infestation. Can gods get senility?

Well, at least God wasn't mad enough to send a Canada Goose infestation. From what I've read they were introduced in the UK and I'd imagine they poop everywhere there like they do here in North America.

Great, your god preffers screwing people over supporting love instead of helping starving children in africa.
Tell me why should we worship that monster, again?

A mice infestation is so unusal and rare, it can only be the magical work of god. There is no natural explanation. Same goes for a drop in sales and profits during a double-dip recession. That's some unlikely shit, right there.
Oh come on now, a MICE infestation? Is that the best punishment the believe their mighty god can dish out? Even I could do that!

Stephen Green, the wife-beating scumbag? Thought the name was familiar. Seriously, these arrogant little turds think their prayers can affect a major supermarket's share price? I think certain people need to learn a bit more about their own damn religion before trying to push it on other people. I can't see God being too chuffed by their claims.

May have something to do with the economic crisis?
