Yeah, but the cool thing about these other ones is that the people selling them are really serious about it...

I am just killing myself laughing over the Holy Trinity 3-pak Lego Set. The description is a scream... hahaha!

Oh man...this could bring the Israel-Palestine debate to a whole new level...

Holy Odour Eater

And actually, this would be a pretty good joke gift if you were going to a tacky-present party or something like that:

Heavenly Images

Man, God the Father looks pissed. Must have found out about that altar to Baal I constructed out of the Lego -- Pirate Island kit a few years back.

Bobble Head and Buddy Jesuses (Jesi?). Why not show some guts and depict Mohammed in such a disrespectful fashion. Do you think the Moslems would put up with that crap?

Those are Christians marketing that stuff, Brutus. This web site is run by people who look for real Christian paraphernalia that is being sold, and most of the time, by devout Christians who think this stuff is wonderful.

But just so you don't feel all oppressed, here's one for you:

Handy Hindus

P.S. I think Jesus and God have a sense of humour. After all, we WERE made in His likeness.

As lampooned on Conan O'Brien, Jesus Sports Statues.

Check out the football one. That kid has a lot of gall to risk tackling the messiah.

I am sure some would, and others wouldn't. Just as some Christians will find these amusing, and others will hit the roof.

There is no static, singular entity that can be called "the Moslems".

Well, the Catholic Shopper people seem to think it's fine to depict Jesus playing basketball or whatever, and really, I find that just as blasphemous as anything the secular world can come up with.

Wasn't there a commandment against making graven images?

I don't think Muslims set themselves up for parody in quite the same way, since AFAIK they don't make pictures of Allah. I'm not saying it would be more wrong to parody them than to parody Christians - but if you make an actual image of your God and plaster it all over the place, you've got to expect someone will satirize it.

"Feel the peace and joy," intones heavenlyimages.com. "We create custom pictures of your loved ones in 'heaven'! Touch someone's heart..."

Oh, lord, that's tacky.

I actually really like the Adam & Eve salt and pepper shakers. I kind of want them now.

I don't think it counts as a graven image if you don't worship it. At least I hope so, or I'll be paying for this t-shirt design I submitted to the Queen's Christian Fellowship...

A very contemporary-looking Jesus on the t-shirt, I might add. About time He sheared that long-hair in the back. For the love of all things holy (oops), with those locks, JC came off as some hesher type quaffing beers in a stadium parking lot pre-Iron Maiden concert. And don't give me that 2,000-yrs-old excuse - it's the oldest in the book.

Dude in my high school -- one of your Iron-Maiden listening, bad-facial-hair wearing skids, I mean this was 1980 or so -- wore a T-shirt reading "Jesus is coming... and boy, is he pissed!"

First time I saw him in it, the vice-principal was giving him shit. Come to think of it, it might have been because of the shirt. That was also the last time I saw him wearing it.
