Anti-religion Clothing

I have really wanted to buy some clothing that is anti-christianity or anti-religious to express myself. But I don't really have the balls to do it (at least not yet!!! :pureevil: )

 

But I guess I have the fear of dealing with some fanatical christian that would try to take my clothes away or fight me in public. I'm also not used to bringing so much attention to myself.

 

Has anyone ever wanted to wear some clothing like this? Has anyone ever worn clothing like this? What response did you get from people or do you have any interesting stories?

Fundies have a hard time of it here in Germany, so it's not too risky to wear such stuff in public. Personally, I often wear a black t-shirt with Odin's ravens tearing apart a jebus fish, even when I drop in at christian cult meetings. So far I didn't experience more than the occasional strange look.

 

And then there are people like this one... :fdevil:

I like the pic. I live on the bible belt and some of these people are fanatical about this stuff (like there is a chruch on almost every street.) So wearing this clothing probably wouldn't be the best idea. Also my dad's a pastor so walking around intentionally looking like an infidel wouldn't be best.

 

More stories please!!!!!!!!

I wouldn't do it either. I too live in the Bible Belt(don't really know if Texas was a Bible belt state, but it certainly is now)area and I would be afraid of my physical safety, from CHRISTIANS(people who are supposed to be about peace n stuff).

 

Furthermore, I am not going to let my family know that I think Christianity is a crock of horse puckey. I am reevaluating my beliefs and figuring out which religion is best for me(probably Buddhism or Paganism)...So I am not adding ANY fuel to the proverbial fire.

 

My belief in god is mine and mine alone, and I don't need condescending people praying over me.

I like to wear religious clothing ironically. I've got a cute little t-shirt with a little dancing monkey girl on it. The monkey is wearing clothes and holding a glass of milk, and has a milk mustache (which actually is the word 'jesus' in tiny, white letters). Up above the little monkey-person, it says "Got Jesus?" I'm fairly certain it was meant to be totally sincere and worn by faithful teenage girls to show their love for Jesus. When I put it on, it takes on a whole new meaning.

I have this t-shirt. It was a gift by my brother. Cool thing about it, it always strikes up conversation. I haven't read Lovecraft, but I have read the other fantasy – the Bible.

Cthulhu is a mythical "god" for lack of a better term created by H.P. Lovecraft. Here's a link to a little more about it.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cthulhu

 

I used to live in the Bible belt and I guess while there I might have worn some of the anti-christian stuff, but only while I was in my angry at christianity stage. Luckily I got out of there before I got to that stage. :grin:

 

I've considered wearing it, but I won't because I'm too nice. I am respectful of others beliefs until they start trying to force theirs down my throat. Here in Los Angeles, the fundamentalist Christians seem to be the minority, so I don't have to deal with it on a daily basis. I don't attempt to proselyte anyone to my belief system, so I don't see the need to wear that type of gear.

On my car I have some bumper stickers. Some are political and some are religious. Here they are:

 

"The problems we face will not be solved by the minds that created them."

 

"Evolution is a theory- kind of like gravity!"

 

"I believe in life BEFORE death."

 

Darwin fish (but it's a small sticker on my window.

 

I used to have "F the president", but I took it off before I had body work done to my car because I was afraid the republican redneck mechanics might fuck up my car.

 

I plan on getting some shirts at some point, but for now the stickers suffice.

 

I do look in my rear view mirror and sometimes catch people looking down at my bumper, making a face, and talking to the person in passenger's seat about it. I have been honked at a couple of times and been flipped the bird. I actually got the trunk of my car keyed when I had a Kerry sticker on the car.

 

Oh and I used to have a magentic ribbon that said something like "support our troops, vote for peace" or something, but it came off in the car wash.

 

Oh and a greenpeace sticker.

 

That's all.

When I was a Chrisitian, I never felt the need to display obnoxious Christian slogans such as "Lack of exposure to the Son may cause burning". Why should I feel the need to weare preachy clothing now that I am a secularist? I don't see why I should display my personal beliefs on a billboard for anyone to see.

A friend of mine gave me a purple T-shirt that says , "Sorry I missed church--I've been busy practicing witchcraft and becoming a lesbian."

 

I wear it. Usually I'm conscientious about bringing a sweatshirt or a light jacket to cover up with if I run into anyone who would be offended by it, but once I completely forgot the slogan and just saw "Nice purple T-shirt" when I was having Thanksgiving dinner with some xtians who hadn't grown up as much as I thought they had.

 

I just said, 'My friend got this for me because I like purple.". It wasn't that big of a deal.

I'm kind of like that. I don't want to put anything confrontational out there on my T-shirt or my car because I just don't see the point. I kinda see it as obnoxious at times, like looking for a fight.

 

But I did see a goth kid at work today (in this little shithell redneck Republican-worship-fanatic town) in a T-shirt that said "Jesus is coming - in porn!" Anti-religious, but really so lame and un-clever that it actually annoyed me. The old "look busy" would have been a lot better, IMO.

When I was Xian, I used to be big into symbols and shirts and stuff. I used to write Xian stuff all over my backpack in high school using a white-out pen. Much of it was anti-gay and anti-pagan things, all the hateful, angry verses. Of course, I was a good Catholic :)

 

Today, I don't wear shirts with slogans anyway. Most of my shirts are plain colors, usually black. To me, I'd feel a little childish wearing shirts with big words on them. My Mjolnir amulet is a sufficient anti-Xian statement, though to me, it's more of a pro-Heathen statement. I don't really feel the need to advertise my hatred for the Xian cult. Talk about it, sure - advertise it, why?

 

Though, like I said in an earlier thread, it'd be great to drive around in a big truck with a picture of Thor using Mjolnir to crucify Jeezus™ and/or Odin using his spear Gungnir to pierce the side of Jeezus™, perhaps while he screams in terror, the son of a bitch :)

I generally woudn't wear anything super ofensive, but I could see wearing something a little more subtle, like a shirt with a quote from Jeferson or Thomas Paine on it. Most people woudn't notice it anyway.

I'm getting on a plane tomorrow to Pittsburgh wearing my "I Love Lucifur" shirt done in the gray heart and lettering ala "I Love Lucy."

 

I've had this shirt for years and never had anyone harrass me about it. I think it's because people see the font and heart and never actually read it. They just assume I'm an "I Love Lucy" fan. :rolleyes:

Yes, I'm a male. :lmao:

I don't have any...my son had a shirt he used to wear..Lets see, it said "Beware of God" on one side and I think "the Lord is a shepherd" on the other? He wore it so much it wore out.

 

My shirts with wording are usually from the many state parks we visit...or the freebies from the Blood Bank. I had one with a chicken on the front with the not symbol over it...in small letters on the top it said "I'm not" and South Texas Blood Bank..I got funny looks in the KFC cuz all they could see was the "Not chicken".. I know..lame.

 

I was trying to design a tshirt on our last trip..something like "Don't be a sheep-come out of the fold."

 

Didn't get too far though..

 

I do have a shirt from my xtian days given to me by my daughter. Its an ILY of Jesus hand with the nail holes visible and something about love. Was told by some fundies that that "sign" was of the devil...and gang related. Uhm..ok, my son and I throw gang signs at each other as we worship satan and tell each other "I love you."

That would make it doubly funny. Plus, extra annoying to fundies.

Actually, Lovecraft is soooo superior to the wholly babble... :fdevil:

 

(You're talking to a "Call of Cthulhu" RPG gamemaster of several years of experience... any questions? ;) )

 

 

What does it mean exactly?

 

Cthulhu: In the bizarre and horrifying world of H. P. Lovecraft (and his followers ;) ), the most prominent and important of the Great Old Ones, horrifying demonic almost-deities. Although I always thought that Hastur Who-Is-Not-To-Be-Named deserves the gold medal much more than his fishy-smelling sibling :pureevil:

It must be difficult living in the USA when you have what seems (from a distance) a christian gestapo regulating even the clothing.

 

If I find a picture in the next day or two, it was my son wearing a "Jesus is gay" t'shirt.

 

He'd always get reactions from Americans when he wore it.
