Christian Cheese

I am not a big fan of most of the dopey merchandise that is marketed to Christians.  I've never liked "Precious Moments" or "Thomas Kinkade," but that is not what I am talking about here.  This blog is about the really stupid Christian merchandise.  Seriously, I'm talking about the junk that the temple merchants throw out in the "gifts" section of your local Christian bookstore.  It's the kind of stuff that makes me want to play the part of Peter the disciple and disavow any knowledge of fellow Christians sporting their new "My boss is a Jewish capenter" t-shirt.  Basically, i am referring to any items that say "WWJD" on them.  Posters that say something like "God said it - I believe it - That settles it!" or my favorite bumper sticker of all time: "In case of rapture, this car will be unmanned." 

Well, Kendra directed me to this website.  This guy has chronicled the worst of the worst.  My favorite is this drawing of a dentist.  I didn't realize Jesus was looking over my shoulder every day.  Here is an interesting ashtray that helps people quit smoking...I have a similar idea for curbing pre-marital sex.  And what is with this one?  I don't even know what the artist is trying to communicate with this picture.

If you have any of this stuff (and I think I've seen some of it in my parent's house), then I'm sorry if you are offended...I would hate to think there are readers of theMangoTimes touting the culinary skills of our Lord and Savior or that anyone reading my blog would be out in public wearing one of these ties.
