Mocking Christians - The bigotry that never goes out of style on FARK.

And he's even wearing his Buddy Christ uniform!

I'm sorry, HappyDaddy, but when Christians do shiat like this, how are we expected not to mock them? Please feel free to share the stupidity of other religions with us so we may mock them equally.

HappyDaddy: Relax, have a Testamint.

I'm not sure what Christians you refer to. The makers of the kitsch - not sure what their religious inclinations may be. The Ship of Fools folks - they are Christians who are demonstrating the absurdity of the products.

My point was, and remains, that mocking the religious beliefs of Christians is routine sport on FARK. It amuses me how the demanders of tolerance in other contexts are so quick to abandon it in this one.

HappyDaddy: Probably because it's just so darn fun to see people get their panties in a knot.
 
2003-12-08 01:09:47 PM  
I want a Bobblehead Buddha. Do they make those?
 
2003-12-08 01:20:04 PM  
This'll be cool. I'll make him wrestle my bobblehead Stone Cold Steve Austin.
 
2003-12-08 01:29:02 PM  
Man, if only they had the John Lithgow walking on water bobble head. Who could call that sacreligous?

You can knot my panties if I can knot yours.

HappyDaddy: You should probably consider reading Ship of Fools a little closer. They might be pointing out the absurdity of these types of things, but they are reveling in it, not chastising it. As for the bobbleheads, I can't say whether or not the manufacturers are Christians. However, many of the other trinkets that are on the Ship of Fools list are made and/or sold by people who claim to be Christians. For instance, the Happy Birthday Jesus Tree Topper offered by the Christian Dollar Store.

We make fun of Christians because it's so easy. American Christians are one of the few groups of religious people who are more than willing to offer up their religion and its symbols as a sacrifice to the gods of pop culture in exchange for a fat wallet. When the people within the religion don't even take their deities seriously enough to keep them sacred, why would anyone else take their religious beliefs seriously?

Who says anyone of the people "persecuting" Christians were ever demanding of tolerance in "other contexts"? Names and quotes, please.

Bah! Who needs the lousy bobblehead Jesus when you can have "The Armor of God"

Yeah, 'cuz, y'know, Christians don't have a history of bigotry or anything...
 
2003-12-08 02:46:35 PM  
I want the Bobblehead Pope, too. Do they make those? Maybe with that thing he wears on his head replaced by a pair of panties in a knot?
 
2003-12-08 02:48:11 PM  
HappyDaddy: You'd say the same thing about Islam bashing on the "Religion of Peace (TM)" threads right?
 
2003-12-08 04:40:49 PM  
A "Jesus hates you when you smoke." ashtray?

How about some rolling papers that say "What Would Boris Do?"
 
2003-12-08 04:51:31 PM  
HappyDaddy I'm not so sure this is really christian bashing. Is it Christian bashing if my (very Catholic) grandparents on my fathers' side bake a birthday cake for Christmas and sing "Happy Birthday Dear Jesus?" It's all in good fun...
 
2003-12-08 04:52:48 PM  
Who would win in a fight: Bobblehead Jesus or the Buddy Christ???
 
2003-12-08 04:53:50 PM  
If you can't make fun of Christians, who can you make fun of? Sheesh.
 
2003-12-08 04:55:06 PM  
That is McSpiffy
 
2003-12-08 04:56:47 PM  
Religion = Business
 
2003-12-08 04:56:47 PM  
My "Jesus Did It For The Chicks" shirt from tshirthell.com is enough for me. You get some interesting looks from people. Good times.

this is not as cool as BibleMan!

" A surprisingly popular item this Christmas is the Bobble Head Virgin Mary, an 8in-tall statue that can stand on the parcel shelf of a car like a nodding dog."

Now that is funny.

Karma Police

Buddy Christ would kick some Bobble Head Jesus @$$
 
2003-12-08 04:58:45 PM  
I've had one since August 2002. Went to San Fran and it seemed like every store was selling them. Not exactly the one in the photo but same concept.

I do enjoy my cheesy religious "art", it helps keep the in-laws away.
 
2003-12-08 04:58:48 PM  

Man, I was sure they would hand over a Jesus bobblehead for only 30 pieces of silver.


Matthew 26:21-25

I have one already.
 
2003-12-08 04:59:09 PM  
nightbreed,

It isn't technically a bobble "head", but Archie McPhee does offer a bobble floating Buddha. They also have a Buddha squeak toy.

Why are these so farking expensive?
Most bobblehead things are relatively cheap. Why is the Son of God so expensive.
My guess is, is that it is "blasphemous", and therefore worth more. Obviously the manufacturers of these so-called bobbleheads aren't very pious themselves.
Just out to make a buck like every other Satan worshipping bobblehead purveyor.

I guess the catholics will prefer the Mary bobblehead over the Jesus one, since they don't believe in Christ's divinity and all.

WOAH JESUS IS BROWN!
His mom's milky white though...
 
2003-12-08 05:01:43 PM  
Sorry. Must have been a glitch in
the nativity.

"You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below nor the Lord Thy God with a head that bobeths."

It's in the ten commandments. Look it up!

Tonight on Celebrity Deathmatch: Bobblehead Jesus vs Buddy Christ!
 
2003-12-08 05:02:48 PM  
This is a mockery of Jesus Christ. This is not a reverant item- it's a toy for people to laugh at when they think of Jesus. What a shame.
 
2003-12-08 05:03:03 PM  
I spit out my hot chocolate looking at the "Armor of God" link.

great write-up




Includes a 13" x 15" chestpiece with straps, 10" x 16" sheild, with arm straps, helmet and 22" sword with sheath. Five pieces per set. Used to combat the devil.

 
2003-12-08 05:03:51 PM  
"I don't care if it rains or freezes as long as I got my plastic Jesus."

This is gonna be a good thread.

Buddy Christ > Bobblehead Jesus
 
2003-12-08 05:04:14 PM  
What about a bobblehead Larry Christ?

That way you can collect the whole family and reenact some wholesome childhood memories!

Religions of the world, in terms of mockery

Jews: "Make fun of us all you want. We do it to ourselves all the time."

Buddhists: "Have fun mocking me in this life."

Taoists: "If you must mock me, then I am to be mocked."

Confucianists: "Yeah, yeah, very funny. Now stop slacking and open a book, stupid."

Muslims: "So what else is new."

Christians: "HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT!!! JESUS DIED FOR YOU!!! CHRISTIANS ARE BEING PERSECUTED IN AMERICA!!!"

/tongue in cheek, obviously there are exceptions to my silly generalizations
 
2003-12-08 05:04:28 PM  
Nothing says christmas like a nail ornament. I guess they will say/sell anything to make a buck.
 
2003-12-08 05:05:14 PM  
Also, sorry for possible threadjacking or trolling. I just really like the Confucianist gag.
 
2003-12-08 05:05:18 PM  
I also like the BibleMan Action Figure

You all hate yourselves.
