The question is what kind of attitude. T-shirts being marketed as supporting the Christian faith have made on the naitonal news in the last week or so.
Did these shirts have messages that someone familiar with the faith would recognize as scripture. Such as-
"Feed my sheep"
"Blessed are the Peacemakers"
"Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done"
"Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive the trespasses of others"
"Love your neightbor as yourself" - (that's a biggie. I'm not sure a lot of us love ourselves very much, let alone our neighbors.)
"Father, forgive them for they know not what they do."
I'm sure that anyone reading this could come up with their own list and not use any of my examples.
So did the shirts in the news have any of these captians. Words that could be recognized as coming from the New Testament. At least I hope they could. Maybe that's part of the problem.
What I saw on the news (and looked up on the Net, just to double check-heck I watched All the Presidents' Men, gotta have two independent sources) were shirts with captians like "My God can kick your God's butt" and "Satan Sucks." "Jesus is my Homeboy" and "Mary is my Homegirl" at least mention somebody from scripture.
Problem is there's a bunch of ass whompin' folks over in the Middle East who could probably wear the "My God........" T-shirt and aren't shy about blowing up a bunch of kids or other civilians to get what they want.
I keep asking myself what is "Christian" about these messages and I keep coming up with NOTHING. The only thing that makes these messages Christian is that the people selling them say they are and they've found enough kids with extra money to buy into it. And I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
Some say that when the Angels cry the tears fall as rain. Maybe that's why we've been having so much rain lately.
