It would look better if you got rid of the black outline around the image.

the priest is preaching religion... i didn't want to specify one, and the reason christianity is on there is because Christianity also preaches against happy people plus many others

I think fanboy4ever's point was that Christianity does not preach against "not straight" people. The issue is far more complex than what you are portraying, and it's controversial even within any one denomination. It is ignorant to suggest that religious people are simply all homophobes. I'd rather not take it further than that - the internet has enough religion flame wars as it is.

In any case, there's nothing on the shirt to suggest that the guy is preaching against "not straight" people. The girl is talking about love and peace, and as il4jc noted, Christianity (not to mention those other religions) actually preach those very topics - love and peace.

I think there's a bit of a confusion with this t-shirt.

It implies that a strict ignorant man is preaching Christianity, Islam, and Judaism in such a hateful way to a loving and peaceful woman who is hitting her head in a way that suggests "Ugh, no, I don't wanna hear this junk."

I'm just saying that this t-shirt is completely stereotyping all Christians, Muslims, and Jews into a category of ignorant, forceful people.

AKA false =]

Hi meyeroshalmi, I read all the comments on your thread and I wanted to say that I like your shirt , sometimes people do preach hate, I don't see the one mean guy as a reflection of ALL people, just some people.

I am from up north (Vermont) and we have a female bishop (Episcopalian...catholic without all the rules against women, priests can be male or female and they can marry and they do not have to be "Straight." It is about helping people not hate)

BUT there are some people who can't see past their own noses, like the guy on your shirt. I like your
shirt...find it's message to be funny , it doesn't confuse me at all that he's going on about 3 different religions, it's typical I think, of the sort of person who is all riled up about religion.

Regardless of the message, this is just not a well executed shirt. It looks like an eight year old drew it. Not trying to be mean, just honest.
