A Tesco Metro store has been forced to close due to a mice infestation, but according to the extremist Christian Voice organisation, it’s linked to the company’s support for LGBT rights.

The leader of Christian Voice, Stephen Green, who has in the past been accused by his ex-wife of beating her writes: “It doesn’t get any better for Tesco, who have seen their ‘big price drop’ flop, sales and profits drop, the worst perfromance of the ‘big four’ over Christmas, their share price plummet, their UK operations CEO sacked, their local management in a spin, all since announcing a £30,000 gift to London Gay Pride in November 2011.”

He then details a mice infestation at the chain’s Tesco Metro store in London’s Covent Garden which prompted the store’s closure. Mr Green also reveals that in 2010, a shopper in Birmingham was “horrified to see baby mice fall out of crisp packet she picked off the shelves in Tesco’s Aston store…I’m not sure if they were inside the multipack or if they were just in amongst the packets.

“But there were a lot of holes in the bag, they’d obviously been at them.”

Mr Green ends his bizzare blog post saying: “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.” He doesn’t detail whether the culprits are in fact church mice.

Tesco regularly part-sponsors pride events and staff take part in marches.

Stephen Green, the self appointed voice of Christians is an avid reader of PinkNews. Last year he fell hook line and sinker for our April Fools story, after reading about our completely made-up iPhone app Kroozr that could tell if someone was gay, Mr Green raged on his blog: “Everything about the depravity, the sadness, the lack of normality, even of humanity, the promiscuity driven by the pathology of homosexuality is distilled into this story.”
