Idol Chatter

I understand the evangelical Christian t-shirt industry’s impulse to turn every catchphrase and mass-culture motto to Jesus’ purposes. A good “Got Jesus?” surfer tee reminds the faithful to keep their eyes on the prize and telegraphs to nonbelievers that serious religion can have a sense of humor.

But isn’t it a tweak too far when a t-shirt re-purposes a phrase made popular by “Napolean Dyanmite,” a movie created by Mormons?
