Jesus Saves, But Does He Shave? Christian Kitsch Becoming More Popular
Show your electronics that Jesus saves and ring in the New Year with a piece of Jesus toast; freshen your breath with one of the famous Testa-Mints (found in your nearest Christian bookstore) before slapping on your Jesus Save sandals to go buy a bobblehead football Jesus.

Are these items harmless, or humorless and offensive? Christian kitsch is becoming a mainstream commodity, making waves in Christian retail on Internet sites featuring odd items.

“There are some disconcerting side effects to watch out for in the world of Christian advertising,” noted James Beverley, in an interview with The Christian Post. “Any promotion that uses Gospel symbols to sell non-spiritual products increases the chances of non-Christians thinking that all Christians are interested in is money. ...

Remember, not-your-Pope, I gave you a little quotation from this sermon?
C. H. Spurgeon wrote:
I look around, and what do I see in the wide, wide world? I do not see God honored. I see the heathen bowing down before their idols; I note the Roman Catholic bowing before the rotten rags of his relics, and the ugly figures of his images. I look all about me and I see tyranny lording it over the bodies and souls of men; I see God forgotten; I see a worldly race of mankind pursuing money; I see a bloody race pursuing false gods; I see ambition riding like Nimrod over the land, God forgotten, His name dishonored.
excerpt from,The First Christmas Carol

Yes, the Romish church has a lot of physical baggage, besides spirit shall baggage, Roman Catholic Tradition.

I don't know. The Catholic attic is very full after 2,000 years. Although the Orthodox Church (our "other lung" -Pope John Paul II) would be a close second.

Except for really cool Bibles (e.g., Gutenberg), Protestants would be a very distant third for "kitsch."

However, because Protestants reject most icons (except for a simple cross), they have a hard time depicting themselves in a Facebook world.
