Call Me Jesus

Happy T-Shirt Tuesday, everybody!

Let's just hope that Living Water isn't $4.50 a cup. Then again, if Jesus is like Starbucks, at least we know that Heaven'll be good music and strong coffee.

How about this? Instead of wearing crappy parodies of a good coffee shop, why don't we take our friends out for coffee there? You know, actually tell them about Jesus? You'd be surprised what a little coffee and conversation can accomplish.

Oh, and if anyone's wondering about the declining frequency in posts, it is intentional. I needed to make things easier on myself. Projects are due and finals are here. Also, I want to make sure I leave myself some material on the web.

I'm afraid that soon I'm actually going to have to go out into the world and do some legwork myself. That's also why you should start sending me stuff!!

Pshaw. What kind of lazy blogger relies on other people to send him his material...

....wait....

...never mind.

Novel idea on the whole "taking them for coffee" thing, Gregory. Are you saying relationships and not sloganeering should be the basis of spreading our faith?!?

I'll have to sleep on that one. It's so crazy, it just might work.

Not really the stuff we do here, but it's just as hideous. I'll be sure and avoid those places.

I'll keep an eye out for more Christian kitsch. It's plentiful here, sadly.

It's too bad my mom doesn't still work at a Christian publishing company. She used to get stuff at conventions all the time. (Actually, the funny thing is that the publishers at non-Christian conventions were way more generous). They used to call it "holy hardware."

The Starbucks ripoff t-shirt is horrendous, btw.

So I googled "holy-hardware", and I found this satirical site. Some of the stuff is real and others are photo-shopped for laughs.

Wow...simply, wow.

The worst part is that most of that isn't Photoshopped. Although, some of it are parody items, I can still tell the ones that are serious.

They make me cry.

Sadly, I own the Buddy Christ. It's an ironic poke at depictions of Jesus that try to make him more palatable. It comes from the fairly-offensive Kevin Smith film (is that redundant?), Dogma.
