12 Days of Sacrilege—Day 3

December 15, 2005

The real problem with Christmas is not that some people say "Holiday" instead, but that it has become so commercialized. So for 12 days I will show an example each day of the "Christian" trinkets you can waste your money on.

On the 3rd day of Christmas you could show who is your "true love" by buying a sports Jesus statuette for $19.95.

Both the basketball and soccer ones have Jesus keeping the ball away from the kids ("suffer the little children?"). The football one has a kid trying to tackle Jesus (that's going to cause some trouble on Judgment Day!). Only the baseball one actually has Jesus teaching instead of competing against the kids (but even then I wouldn't buy it!).

Thanks to blogs4God for pointing this item out.
