    I’m guessing “File not found” wasn’t what left you speechless.

    Simen,

    I kinda liked it :)

    Yeah, I put this thing up last night and, like the real Jesus, it keeps miraculously dying and resurrecting.

    It mysteriously landed intact in the atheism central tumbler.

    They should have made the “nice” Jesus a little happier looking :)

    If you were the “real” Jesus would you be smiling at the American Jesus? ;-)

    That explains this nagging feeling I get when I see some modern Christians… I wish they would be a bit more Christian. 8)

    I liked that cartoon – watch out Christians are going to burn down a newspaper building (Arghhhhhhhhhhhhh). Of course we won’t – it’s just a cartoon.

    I think it makes a lot of sense and it speaks to the current Nationalizing and Markerting of Jesus in the past 30 years (or more).

    haha that is a great comic, and I couldn’t agree more…just like we do with everything, we have successfully “Americanized” Jesus and Christianity

    I’ve been wondering; which denomination has the whitest Jesus? Within just a few days of each other, my house was visited by both the Mormons and the Jehovah’s Witnesses. They both left proselytizing propaganda cards with a picture of Jesus on them. The Mormons’ JC looked like a good, solid mid-western farm raised kind of guy, while the Jehovah’s Witnesses version was more of a Seattle grunge messiah. Personally, I think it’s hard to beat the kitschy, acrylic on black velvet Caucasian Christ I once beheld in a Church of the Nazarene foyer.

    And there is always the “American Jesus” as sung by Bad Religion

    Excellent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely excellent.
    I really like what you have acquired here, really like what you are
    saying and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and
    you still care for to keep it wise. I cant wait to read far more from
    you. This is really a terrific site.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don’t know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
    the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.

    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    Aw, this was a very good post. Finding the time and actual effort
    to generate a really good article… but what can I say…
    I hesitate a lot and never seem to get anything done.

Attention Christian Readers

Just in case you were wondering who we are and why we de-converted.

de-conversion wager

Whether or not you believe in God, you should live your life with love, kindness, compassion, mercy and tolerance while trying to make the world a better place. If there is no God, you have lost nothing and will have made a positive impact on those around you. If there is a benevolent God reviewing your life, you will be judged on your actions and not just on your ability to blindly believe in creeds- when there is a significant lack of evidence on how to define God or if he/she even exists.
