Now, I hate Abercrombie and Fitch as much as the next guy. But when I saw this, I was so ashamed, I think I passed out...I don't quite remember. Everything was pretty hazy.
Not only is this a knockoff, but it's a really stupid knockoff. Abreadcrumb & Fish? Apparently, the 5,000 that Jesus miraculously fed weren't all that hungry. If any non-Christians read this, I would love to hear your reactions to this piece, and others like it. I imagine it would be somewhere between stifled laughter and unbridled ridicule.
To be fair, I am not saying that I would never wear any sort of Christian apparel. I would just like to see something original. I want to see something that catches the eye with simplicity, and a succinct message. It could be subtle, perhaps a little ambiguous or clear; it doesn't really matter. I've come up with a Christian t-shirt that I would wear:
See? Simple, concise, and most importantly not a knockoff! The message would be clear to some, and slightly ambiguous and, hopefully, intriguing to others. Come on, people! We're supposed to be children of God, who created us, the most complex, original beings in the Universe. Why, then, does it seem like some Christians don't have a uniquely creative bone in their whole body?
