ETERNAL LIFE IS UNATTAINABLE. RELIGIONS AND VIDEO GAMES PERPETUATE THE INSIDIOUS IDEA THAT IT IS. ALL CAPS. BITCH.

Ugh, most of those shirts are offensive. Furthermore, they're the kind of shirts you would buy if you wanted to poke fun at Christianity... or taunt your religion like it's a cheap new slogan. The "Coke" logo that shows "Jesus Christ" as "eternally refreshing" makes me want to throw up. this one is pretty bad too.

Man, what'a a ridiculous site. I don't know what's more disturbing, that somebody would make this site or that people actually buy the products... probably the ladder.

Bwahahahahhah.... sorry but I couldn't resist this one:

http://www.kerusso.com/detail.taf?li...0&r=1004662122

Anyway, I'd agree with you that were someone wearing most of these shirts it would seem like they were mocking the religion. But oddly enough I don't think that's the goal of the site, I think they're just really, really dense (their attempts to be hip failed and backfired). Not all of the shirts are like that -- like this one:

http://www.kerusso.com/detail.taf?li...20&r=305582637

That one seems more "normal"... in that I can see someone wearing that not to mock, but to show their following.

That's the perfect example. I think they were just trying to be witty/clever/catchy. I don't really think they realized it's as stupid as it is.

My take is this site is run by 50+ year old strong Christian white men who are totally clueless when it comes to modern culture, and are trying to hook youngsters with catchy T-shirt slogans. Kind of like the WWJD shirt/accesory craze.

Meh, I don't like the fact that the cross on the sprite's shirt connects to his pants. They need some space inbetween.

I think the point of these shirts is to be rediculous, though. If you saw someone wearing that shirt and stopped to tell them how stupid it was, it's still a chance for them to try and "spread the good news", so to speak. You've engaged them in a (somewhat) religious conversation when you normally would not have.

It's far more effective than a Jesus fish on your bumper (or a Darwin fish, for that matter).

Most of these are just plain stupid, but some are actually offensive. The Matrix spoof one is pretty funny though. "Jesus is the One."
