Christian groups' fury at  T-shirt which mixes sex and the Bible

Hmmmm  ...  I would have thought it a positive thing to have the Bible message included.  In Britain today, they might not see it anywhere else

Fashion chain Next has been slammed by Christian groups over a graphic ‘Sinners’  T-shirt which depicts women as sex objects and uses Bible references.

A Twitter storm has erupted over the shirt with one blogger even claiming the shirt, image and message effectively condones rape.

The T-shirt carries the headline ‘Sinners – The Night Before’ above the seductive image of a woman in black underwear lying on a bed.  The image is surrounded by a series of slogans which read: ‘Live for the Day – Seize the Night and all it may hold’

Finally, there is a long smallprint passage which carries a number of definitions of sin including one from the Bible from epistle to the Romans, chapter seven.

Gareth Davies, of Christian Action Research and Education, contacted Next via its official Facebook page to complain about the T-shirt.  He asked: ‘Why are you marketing graphic T-Shirts with misogynistic poses of women in underwear and promoting such images using The Bible?’

Mr Davies said: ‘The image itself is very unhelpful. It gives a message about availability and vulnerability of women. They are then using the word sin and words from the Bible to suggest this is both naughty but nice.

‘The whole concept is wrong-headed and demeaning to women. Human dignity should be cherished and women should not be reduced to the level of an object.’

Watch liberals sue somebody for wearing a T-SHIRT with the ten comandments on it especialy the leftist ACLU

Complaining about such trivial matters is dumbly counter-productive as it just draws more media attention, and probably encourages more sales of such t-shirts.

This isn't "fury". If you want "fury" (along with "murder") put a verse from the Koran on the shirt.

The Bible does not mention "Bird of Paradise". Therefore, he does not exist.

If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting!
