Mc Do Ad Ban in Philippines, Not in India

Recently, the Church in the Philippines asked Mc Donalds to withdraw the TV ad that it recently launched. The Church said that the ad is not family friendly. Yesterday, I found a Mc Donalds ad which is the same concept as shown in the Philippines, but this time it's shown in India. Both ads featured two grade school kids. The young girl asked the young boy is she can be her girlfriend but the boy refuses giving reasons that girlfriends are demanding. So, the young girl said that all she wants is a ( french fries : in Philippine ad) (burger : India ad). The message of the ad is basically, Mc Donalds food is so cheap that even kids can afford to buy.

What I don't understand is that why the Philippines' priests make so much fuss about it. In my observation, Filipinos are more modern, open-minded, and westernized than Indians. Indians are also too family-oriented people. However, with this kind of ad, we reacted so much, but the Indians do not. So, who's more open-minded now? Check out the two ads below:
