Apparently Taco Bell has halted their Cardcaptors Tarot Card Promotion due to pressure from offended clients.

From an item posted in the forum by Tenchi.

The Agape Press, a Christian news organization run by Reverend Donald Wildmon's American Family Association, is reporting that Taco Bell has halted their Cardcaptors Clow Card promotion as a result of customers' complaints.

Apparrently the customer's were bothered by the Clow Cards' resemblance to "tarot cards used in occult practices."

Lori Gannon, Taco Bell's national promotions director, is quoted in the article as saying, "So we took a look at the items and we've held them all at the distribution center -- we're not sending them to our restaurants any more and pretty much have ended the program."

However there is no mention of this on any reputable news source and Taco Bell's website still sports the promotion.
