Kmart comes under fire for banning ‘Jesus,' 'church' but allowing 'Islam,' 'Koran' at photo kiosk

While attempting to print photographs for a church group, Australian Kmart customers Anthony Dorsett and his wife, Marelynda, found that certain Christian-related words — including “God,” “church,” “Jesus,” “Jewish” and “Bible” — were deemed to be profanity and replaced by asterisks, The Daily Telegraph reports. However, “mosque,” “Islam” and “Koran” were found to be acceptable.
При попытке напечатать фотографии для церковной группы австралийские клиенты Kmart Энтони Дорсетт и его жена Марелинда обнаружили, что некоторые христианские слова, в том числе “Бог”, “церковь”, “Иисус”, “иудей” и “Библия”, были признаны ненормативной лексикой и заменены звездочками, сообщает Daily Telegraph. Однако ”мечеть“,”Ислам“ и ”Коран" были признаны приемлемыми.

A Kodak spokesman told the news publication that the ban on religious terms “was a complete error” and they had remedied the problem by Thursday morning.
Представитель Kodak сообщил изданию, что запрет на религиозные термины “был полной ошибкой”, и они исправили проблему к утру четверга.
