The T-Shirt to wear all over conservative states . . .

I plan to make t-shirts with this graphic and wear them around Texas. And give them to my friends to wear. IMO it is the only discussion that will lovingly enable evangelicals to question their views.

Not much else to say about it.

Cheers! I-m so happy

You can take your christian and eat it too (to paraphrase Dylan).
A good shirt deserves a smile.

was cool. Didn't know he was so far ahead of his time.

Good T-shirt. In my neck of the woods I would omit the part about wimin and their reproductive issues....can't suggest they get too in-dee-pendent and all.

but my first thought was an old military maxim: Never try to baptize your kitty.

No. Wait. That was another great piece of pure wisdom I love. What the hell was my first thought?

Oh yeah: When you pull the tail of a tiger you better have a plan to deal with the teeth.

Some of them ol’ boys and girls in Texas get a bit touchy about their thoughts on religion and wimmin’s naughty bits being challenged in public.

. . . to deal with the teeth . . .

Yes. True.

Kindness and being non-accusatory . . . So I will print one and wear it to Walmart and see what happens?

Fridays for Snarkistas to wear on Fridays and Mondays for the Past to wear on MOndays. Then I treat myself with Saturdays for Desperados.

Are you trying to get more people to vote for Sanders or start an argument? If you're looking for Trump to Sanders voters there are probably about a thousand ways better to go about it. I know a few people who said in 16, "Either Sanders or Trump" and woke culture wasn't anywhere on their horizon. If you do get arguments you need to deflect with a smile cause you asked for it.

They don't work anyway. The smile is a good idea.

I have a couple of threads I could drop this into, but for now, right here is fine.

Not the Hallelujah you think it is.....

Hallelujah
Martin Sexton
Does Satan wear a suit and tie
Or does he work at the Dairy Queen
Does he listen to rock and roll
Does he feed the mean
Singing Hallelujah

What about Jesus
Didn't he do it too?
Hang out with prostitutes
And have a drink or two
Power of example
My mama said it and I heard
She says one ounce of action
Beats a ton of words

Singing Hallelujah
Mama said there would be angels
Mama said there would be sun

Is the devil in Elvis to go where no white man went
Or hiding in Hugh Hefner's body or maybe even Larry Flynt
Say, hows about the President shielding all them stones
Man if I could find a shield like that I'd run 'round naked
In my glass home

Sippin' Hallelujah
I think my angel's gone to Vegas
Sippin' Hallelujah
Holding aces in her hand, Hallelujah
As she's singing rock of ages, Hallelujah
On the table at the Sands, Hallelujah

Does Satan wear a suit and tie or
Does he work at the Dairy Queen
Does he listen to rock and roll
Does he feed the mean
Streak in all of us
All us saints here on earth
Hypnotized and over-advertised
'Til we're numb at birth

Singing Hallelujah
And my angel's turning pages
Singing Hallelujah
And she just don't understand, Hallelujah
That the devil's hot on her trail, Hallelujah
On the road to broken promised land, Hallelujah
On the TV and the radio. Hallelujah
Good and evil look the same to you
Elvis lives and Jesus saves.

A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit. Allegedly Greek, but more possibly fairly modern quote.

Bernie would not condemn a person to hell for not accepting his teachings/messages. I could list others of Jesus's sins, but I'll just stick with the major one for now.

If you don't believe that Jesus threatened hell (quite often actually) please carefully read the entire contents of the New Testament.

@Fishtroller 02 heard hell as a prediction for certain behaviors, for instance rich people mistreating poor, etc., not as threats.

"I was hungry, and you gave me no food . . ." is the perfect example of that.

There could be another t-shirt there, but it would be much more offensive. "Do you think Jesus will take you in the rapture if you did not feed the hungry, clothe the naked, house the stranger, etc. ?"

And I largely disregard the rest of the bible. Disciples ultimately did not follow Jesus. They just created a somewhat reformed version of current-day Judaism. And the old testament is largely a collection of horrible stories.

I agree with Granma on the point that it was a prediction for certain behaviors. And mostly in Matthew, who apparently got into that sort of stuff.

The graphic does not say that Bernie follows the bible. Bernie follows the beautiful Jesus stories.

Thanks for your comments though. Many people feel the same as you.
