It's a slow news day apparently. I'm sure some people on the site will agree with me when I express concern with the future of the Sweedes!

It took me a few minutes of looking at the jeans before I saw what was so offensive. There are many logo's that are against/for the christian religion so I see why there is a shrug from the Lutheran Church. There is only so much that can be controlled, But hey, in the end, they look just like any other pair of jeans.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Perhaps those people who are offended by these jeans could do something radical -
like not buy them or even get a life? [Smile]

...and yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this earth with envious eyes...

Or turn the other cheek?

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Sheesh...

Slow news day indeed - I mean I have seen many many much more obviously anti-christian symbols all over the place - any rock/punk T shirt shop would be a good place to start

And look at it - is that 'really' an upturned cross? Or just a couple of lines sort of indicating some hint of supra orbital ridges?

Hmm - methinks someone was looking to create a controversy from nothing and Mr Cheap Mondays saw no harm in playing along and whipping up a bit of free press coverage...

Personally I think the Lutherans have got their heads screwed on right here... to get into a froth over something as petty as this would just make them look very silly and insecure. Not to mention the obvious nastniess of getting sucked into a media storm in a teacup.
