I like this one complete with other accessories for toddlers and young children. Though the kids may ask, “Hey, where’s the Easter Bunny and his goodies? WTF!”

So, this is where Philip Pullman got his idea for his Armoured Bears!

Andy,
Let’s all get together for a rousing round of this game. I’m curious to see the questions– do you actually win the game, or is it completely non-competitive?
Rod and Todd Flanders didn’t use dice in boardgames bc they were wicked (a form of gambling?)

Now I know what action figure would have been the first one to have this heart ripped out by my Mortal Kombat toys when I was 10.

Hi Derek,
Which one? In researching this contest, I found resurrection action figures (Roman soldiers and whatnot), and various other action figures from bible scenes that made me wonder what the designers were thinking.

I vote for the Ladies Camo Army of God Bible Cover – Large

Bible Cases open flat and feature inside pockets, pen loops, satin ribbon bookmarks, and embroidered designs on the front pocket. Color matched zipper and stitching, lightweight soft padding, and zipper pull with Christian fish complete the construction.

I am sure every good christian lady is hoping for one of these.

Hi Eric,
I’d rather have a frillier, old lady style bible cover for stashing my sex materials. Camouflage=army of god= hilarious

Well you should check out http://mybelovedsgarden.net/ for christian sex toys. Basically sex toys, but with bad web design.

I especially like:

“Since early 2004 we have been blessed to be featured in several publications, helping us to get the word out about Christian Love, Sex and Intimacy (yes even Christians have sex :)) “

IN THE SAN FERNANDO MISSION, LOCATED IN SAN FERNANDO CALIFORNIA, AT THE NORTH END OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY, IS THE MADONNA ROOM. THERE, EXISTS AN OVERWHELMING SUPPLY OF VARIOUS MADONNA SCULPTURE ON SHELVES TO THE CEILING ALL AROUND THE ROOM. THE UNEXPECTED TOUCH OF ADDITIONAL KITCH IS THAT WHEN YOU STEP INTO THE ROOM MUSIC IS AUTOMATICALLY PIPED IN. CAN MUSIC BE KITCH TOO?

This is nothing that hasn’t been passed around before, but I’m a big fan of the inappropriate Jesus with children lightswitch:

Someone really should have though abut where that switch was going to end up.

Dear JaneKay,
Can music be kitsch? You bet your rosary! I’d love to see a picture/hear more detail, if you can…

Alex,
Great lightswitch. Was the placement of the switch itself on purpose as a fun anti-religion novelty, or just a really cool Freudian “accident”?

Just today I saw that god ugly prayer cross. I saw this post a couple of days ago not knowing that this contest was in response to that stupid thing. I was gonna submit the prayer cross. How dumb of me.

Great idea for a contest.

How about “Armor of God PJ’s?” I found it on this blog. They have a picture too. Just scroll down to the couple of smiling kids.

Yo Celeste,
We already have the Armor of God PJs (just the thing to put the kids to sleep!!), but some great t-shirts on this site you sent. I think I recently saw someone wear the Starbucks one.
I also love the Jesus footprint sneakers. I think archaeologists discovered ancient Greek sandals from a prostitute that left the footrpint “follow me.”
Who knew ancient Greek johns were so literate?

Welcome to Gabbin' About God, sponsored by Ace Religious Supplies, where they say, “If we don't got it, it ain't holy.”

Just kidding. This is Not My God, a site for the personal aspect of atheism. I'm putting together a book with that title, having already 20 interviews lined up, but I still want to hear from more of you.
I've expanded the blog to include material not related to atheism, including rants, raves, consumer issues, curmudgeonly matters and other miscellany.
