(Forgive me for discussing religion here, but as a Christian I feel I must.)
Jaden, true Christianity is not a religion, its a relationship.
An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it.

Ha ha, wow! Some of you guys are taking this whole thing a bit to heart (on both sides). Its cool to state your opinion, but lets leave out the destain and sarcasm, okay? THAT is the reason there is so much hate between the religious and non-religious. Well...the main reason, at least.
Anyway, in reference to that comment regarding the "500 versions of the Bible"...that's true, but that doesn't mean that there is no translation that is accurate. There are several which are based directly on the Dead Sea Scrolls (you know...original or first generation copies of a huge portion of the Bible). In fact, all of the mainstream versions of the Bible which were previously critisized for being products of 2000 years worth of retranslating (KJV, NIV, etc) were matched up with the scrolls in the 50s and 60s and found to be astonishingly accurate to the letter. If you read how they were translated, it was a painstaking process I won't get into since this is supposed to be a comment about a shirt. Wow this is off subject. Anyway, thought I'd throw that out there.
Also, I really don't think the shirt is what's blasphemous...its the clever commentary (which I normally like even more than the shirts). Implying that God doesn't care about humanity, that he only makes a mess of things? Really, that seems a bit over the line to me. But again...its all opinions, and they make the world go round, right?
