thats a low blow
EPIC FAIL
now thats pretty silly
LOL how strange and at the same time how amusing!
Awesome.
my jesus looks better than that
thats lame
ummm Nintendo isn't advertising Jesus, it's a church that is using Nintendo's patent/trademark/copyright (without permission i'm sure). the title is misleading.

oh yeah but a good Mii though.
cool
Haha racing Jesus in Mario Kart Wii would be pretty funny
That is a real good way to get people to go to church!
That's hilarious

Why bunnys???
Easter isnt about bunnys
errr...interesting...

back away slowly...
if u look carefully jesus is black!
how do you think a muhummad mii would go down?
Hahaha, the things they'll do to get people to go to church.
bunnys are there because its "follow mii....down the rabbit hole! mixing up more than one fairytale here
people shouldn't have to advertise religeon. it should be an independant choice by someone.
Lol I'd go to that church
Pshh my Jesus Mii is sooo much better than that!
My J.C. is the buddy Christ from DOGMA
Cute, but extremely misleading news item. Actually, it's not even up for interpretation: Nintendo is not promoting religious advertisements. I enjoy this website, but please be a bit more responsible with what you tell your readers.

It's not MyWii posting the news, it was Matt, anyone can post news on this site.

can u say newbie?

Hey if u want to post something the option is for u to do it. but just make sure you don't post something that's already been posted... you should read the rules

As for this story, i think that's pretty neat! I wish my church did that
pretty cool.... if it makes people stop and look .... i say good choice

And screw the blasphemous crap.... it's not doing any harm to anyone... the church must have thought about it and not come up with one single thing wrong with it thats why they ended up using this ad

I say good on them if it gets people to come... that's what advertising is all about.... toget the point accross
hmm. offensive but oh so funny
It's not blasphemous. They're trying to be cute. If there are heaps of Wii users in the church, they'd get it.
