Devilish Denim: Jeans a Big Hit in Sweden
STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) - Cheap Monday jeans are a hot commodity among young Swedes thanks to their trendy tight fit and low price, even if a few buyers are turned off by the logo: a skull with a cross turned upside down on its forehead.

Logo designer Bjorn Atldax says he's not just trying for an antiestablishment vibe.

"It is an active statement against Christianity," Atldax told The Associated Press. "I'm not a Satanist myself, but I have a great dislike for organized religion."

The label's makers say it's more of a joke, but Atldax insists his graphic designs have a purpose beyond selling denim: to make young people question Christianity, a "force of evil" that he blames for sparking wars throughout history. ...

Jim says:
Sweden has an established church + evil people live in Sweden = state churches are bad.

It could as easily be said:
America does not have an established church + evil people live in America = antiestablishment countries are bad.

Jim, there are conservatives in the Church of Sweden who preach effectively and take stances against popular dress trends, as mentioned by this Swedish preacher in the article: "One cannot just keep quiet about this," said the Rev.

However, you won't hear about them much in the media, because the media would just as soon advocate an anti-Christian sentiment.

This does show the deterioration of Swedish society. State churches just do not preach The Word, again listen to:

State churches being entangled in civil government lose their effectiveness, if they really ever had any. Sweden being a prosperous country and war-free for a couple of centuries has gotten very flabby in Christian belief and practice.
