Assorted links: tacky Christian consumerism edition

Would Jesus prefer to have his name on a yoga DVD or a very long roll of strawberry flavored gum?

  • They say there’s not enough inspirational gum in the world. This Scripture-imprinted Fruit by the Foot knockoff should get the ball rolling.
  • They also say there’s not enough inspirational pet-owner gear in the world. (As if being a dog owner is not immediate enough.) Here, then, Proverbs 17:17 on a dog leash.
  • This basic hygiene product purports to wipe away all your problems once the Pope makes his visit.
  • I hear Jesus was totally ripped. Must’ve been all that early-morning yoga.
  • Jesus themed t-shirts, meanwhile, seem to be growing worse. These days they’re getting confused with all things Ed Hardy.
  • Jesus is my coach: I can do all things through him who strength-trains me in golf, martial arts, hockey, baseball, football, ballet, or rollerblading.

    The first one adds new meaning to “read, mark, and inwardly digest”….


    The sad part is, even if there were one of those shirts I might consider, it would still never look on me like it looked on the model.

    The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

    The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
