Branding God

Snapshot 2009-07-30 12-39-23I saw this picture on a site and I have always thought this kind of stuff was a little silly, but somehow people keep making it because people keep buying it. Churches tend to follow this model when they create t-shirts for everything they do as they turn their people into walking billboards. Here are few of the comments below of how the general audience perceives these products:

Whatever happened to “Thou shalt not steal”?
I’m betting this isn’t licensed.

This T-shirt asserts (without proof, obviously) that the big sky-daddy exists, and the best they can come up with is an appeal to sad, lonely people.

The target audience is “Average America” who’ve been indoctrinated into the mindset that everything needs a logo and a t-shirt to be viable.

Further evidence that people don’t actually believe in god. If I knew an all powerful cloud dweller I would not make him into a plastic figurine or a rip off t-shirt, or a car decal.

Well this certainly explains some things… I’ll bet God left my salvation on the porch and the damn neighbor kids stole it. I guess I’m going to have to file another claim.
