Can I Get An Amen?

I have a confession.

I don't really care for, oh, how do you say it---the wearing of religion on one's sleeve. Or bumper. Or shirt. I appreciate a person's devotion and dedication, but bumper stickers that say, "Honk for Jesus" or even the basic "Jesus loves you" kind of bug me. I don't get worked up about it because clearly they do it for some people, but they do make me roll my eyes a little...

So, the other day I was trolling the aisles of Walsmart I passed a guy wearing a shirt that said, "Jesus Loves You" and I rolled my eyes. Ever so subtly.

Later I happened to pass him again in another aisle. This time there weren't stacks and stacks of Double Chocolate Oreo Cookies to distract me and I saw his shirt in its entirety. Below the proclamation of Jesus' love for every stranger he passed, it read, "(BUT I'M HIS FAVORITE)"

Now that is some religion I could slap on my bumper...

LOL!

I'll leave my "Live for Jesus" shirt in the suitcase if I ever come see you.

AMEN!!! THAT is hilarious!

I have the same little bee in my bonnet...

D and I saw a Mercedes roadster convertible (i.e., car that cost more than we make in two years) with a bumper sticker that said, "Don't be fooled - my real treasure is in heaven." We are still in awe at someone who can be in the world and not of it so well. ;)

But my real favorite is, "In case of rapture, can I have your car?"

Ditto for me I do not like....but my favorite is "when GOD comes down she is going to be mad". Mom says I am bad for liking that!
When I was doing Visiting nursing I was held hostage by a "Holy Roller" in her home until she had her complete say. It was very scary but now that I am NOT twenty bring it on!!!!

I've never seen that shirt before. How funny! "WWJD" (What would Jesus do?" items were popular for a long time here. At first it was kind of cool, but then I started seeing it everywhere and it kind of lost it's meaning a little. Hopefully we don't need a wristband to remind us to choose the right...

NCS: You know you like getting walloped by a not-so-redhaired stranger!

Sketchy: Come visit. With that shirt, you'll fit right in around here.

CYM: "Don't be fooled, I bought this with a credit card" that's what my bumper sticker would have to say. I like the rapture idea...

S: Mom's right. You're naughty. :)

Carrot: HA! Way to cut right to the important part of the post. I walk very very slowly.

Suzanne: J's had me convinced the J was HIS name, I never knew...

Analiese: You aren't kidding! That is totally your humor!

Anonymous: Why you telling my business? How am I supposed to get any sympathy now?
