Tell me what you think of this design. I tried to model it as a 747 tail, though I did take some artistic liberty with the rudder separation and overall proportions. It might seem a little corny, but I hope you like it!

so what is the benefit of using tinyurl when linking directly to your blog?

But about the design, seems like a limited market, no?

OK. I grant you that it´s humorous in a rather dorky way.

But really, why is it necessary for people to advertise their religion? Isn´t your religion supposed to be between you and God?

I saw a billboard outside a church yesterday... "Lying in bed shouting 'Oh God' does NOT constitute going to church!"



After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Quoting DocLightning (Reply 4):

I agree with you to the extent that faith should never be made a commodity nor materialized (which is why I'm not a fan of wearing cross necklaces--I like to think that I wear that cross inside). But I think that you go too far in saying that I "advertise" Christianity by making a link between Jesus and a vertical stabilizer.

I don't see this shirt as some ad for a religion, but a statement about the nature of Christ that is worth some consideration, if not deep analysis. I don't expect anyone to go to church for the first time in their lives because they see this shirt. (If that were the case, I would wonder how much faith and understanding they really had.)

As for your statement that my faith is supposed to be "between me and God:" well, you're right. That's whom I have faith in. But if religion were ONLY between God and I, I would never donate money to a charity. I would never have the chance to talk about God with other people. I would never be inspired to serve at soup kitchens or go to anti-genocide protests. If it weren't for me applying faith in public life, I never would have done any of these things--or make a dorky T-shirt.

You have the right to rebuke me if I am ever ostentatious due to my religion, just like Jesus took offense with those praying in public.I hope that you will. But if Christianity for me were reduced to a relationship between God and I, I would have much less of a chance to do good in this world.

Hope this cleared a few things up.  Smile

The funny thing is that I'm a devout atheist and I do charity work all the time. I work in soup kitchens because I like to cook and I work at charity health fairs because I'm a doctor. Why? Not because of a deity, but because I am a human and I should help other humans. That's why I've devoted my entire life's work to...helping other humans who can't help themselves; the ickle tiny ones who have no voice of their own (unless they're behind you on a plane, then they most certainly DO find their voices!  Wink ). But I do it because it's just the right thing to do.

Anyway, I respect your right to faith and your beliefs just as you should respect my right to reject them. But I do reserve the right to challenge people to question themselves.

Rest assured, my faith is challenged and questioned (by me) every day. The funny thing is that this only causes it to grow.

Thanks for the discussion!

Saying this respectfully, I don't think people who wear cross necklaces expect others to go to church for the first time after seeing someone else wearing a necklace with a cross on it.

Anyway, in linking flying and religion, I think Gen. Robert L. Scott nailed it best with "God is My Co-pilot".

I love that fucking song. Favorite lyrics:

Too damn funny!  rotfl

I first saw that on the Total Axxess website the other day. I was laughing SOOOO hard. Here's some better, more representative of today's trends, Christian music:

And the very humorous, non-religious content music of Christian artists can be a hoot too!

I'm not a fan of that style too much but there are many christian rock songs/bands today that easily sound better than the current secular rock that MTV and the radio plays. There's christian spanish rock that is very good as well. Secular American rock has been declining in quality for a while now.
