I Want These Jesus Jammies

Well, I guess I don’t need all the Armor of God PJs.

I really just want the headdress and the shield.

But I’m sure the Pants o’ Truth would be of use in the bedroom as well…

And they said indoctrinating children with religion at a young age was child abuse…

The PJs are $39.95 a pop.

The graphic says that a mother inspired the pajamas when reading Ephesians 6:10-18 to her daughter every night.

What does that passage say?

… Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one…

That should give children nightmares, not lull them to sleep… In 10 years, someone please keep those children away from me.

Then again, these children are probably more likely to become atheists.

When your parents are into Jesus this much — when pictures of you in your Jesus Jammies begin to re-emerge as you grow up — you’ll want to run away from your childhood faith like crazy.

Part of me is amused.

I think it’s safe to say I became an atheist after thinking about it while lying in bed over the course of several weeks. Late night was a peaceful time to reflect on the big questions I was struggling with at the time.

Can you imagine a person realizing that God might not exist while wearing this getup? :)

    I thought that was a joke…

    It looks like something an English crusader would have worn…

    *WARNING: Armor of God PJs are highly combustible and will not actually protect your children from the flaming arrows of the evil one.

    God told her to do this, don’t you know? It has nothing to do with making money off of gullible believers.

    Oh, and I noticed that while boys get an actual helmet, girls have to make do with a scarf. Not much protection against sword blows if you ask me!

    Fundies have no taste. Whatever else may be said about them – they simply have no taste. In my view, that is their worst transgression. It offends me even more than the salvific exclusivism does. Their obsession with eternal damnation is bad enough, but this sort of thing – there are just no words.

    I’m moving to Europe.

    Sorry dude but this is years old….are you sure you didn’t mention this before?? Because this really isn’t anything new…at all.

    It’s new to me, mike.

    If anybody’s interested in the thought behind this sort of craziness, I highly recommend “Rapture Ready” by Daniel Radosh. He mentions these PJs, too.

    I don’t know, cipher. After the Pat Condell thing above?…

    I’m quite tempted to request the girl’s version – only a size large enough for an adult male. Halloween is in less than a month!

    I haven’t watched it yet. If you mean the censorship – that’s Youtube, which is Google, and they’re just wussies, now (recall that business in China a couple of years ago). If you mean the infiltration of European countries by Muslim fanatics – I’ll take my chances. I think I’ll still come out ahead.

    Yeah, that’s what I meant. Good luck to you. Myself, I’ll stay here. (However, the day may come when the problem is just as bad here. [Shudder!])

    Ah you see this is how the pious Xtian avoids “worldliness” – by creating their own subset of worldliness for their profit.

    I say you wear those pants of truth in the next “Atheists are Hot” calender*.

    *I don’t actually remember the name of the calender.
