Now I’m a Believed-er

I would totally wear this t-shirt:

It’s not offensive, it raises questions, and it could begin many a discussion. Perfect.

  • I don’t get it.

  • By “not offensive”, I assume you mean by the standards of people who also wouldn’t be offended by billboards that say “Don’t believe in God? You’re not alone.”

    But I agree, the discussions it could begin would be very much worth having…

    he believed… as in past tense form of believe… as in he no longer believes

  • It’s still a bit ambiguous. Mitch Hedberg pointed it out in a joke, “I used to do drugs. I still do, but I used to, too.”

    You know how I know there’s no god? Mitch Hedberg is dead.

  • It kind of reminds me of the old joke:

    “I don’t drink any more…”

    “I don’t drink any less, but I don’t drink any more.”

    But the shirt would be a good conversation starter for those that once believed but not any more.

    I didn’t get it either…………….

    Nice 😉

    Makes me think of that video where there’s a bunch of people talking in ex-Gay shirts 😛

    Which makes me think of shirts that are ex-Christian, ex-Muslim, ex-Jain, etc. 😉

    Alas they don’t quite apply to me. I’m an Believed-er in God as much as I’m an Believed-er in Santa, which is to say technically I did believe in both at some point but only as a small child who didn’t know any better 😛

    I don’t know why, but when I first saw this I assumed the -ed meant passive voice, not past tense.

  • Love the T-shirt! I wore a Flying Spaghetti Monster shirt to a meet n’greet with a Christian Pastor today! He actually got a good chuckle out of it. I have a few friends who this shirt would be perfect for. Where can I get one?

    This is just bad grammar for ‘I am an ex-believer’, ‘I am a former believer’ or ‘I used to be a believer’.

    Bad grammar is not cool in itself unless you’re a lolcat. kthxbai

    I believe NakedPastor who drew this will provide T-shirts (he does other T-shirts).

    Though whether he has done one for this, I don’t know. You can ask in the comments there.

    I’m not really the type of person to display my beliefs on my chest (I don’t like bumper stickers either) but I do like this statement, and perhaps the next time someone asks me my religious preference, I can tell them that I’m a “believed-er” to see what kind of reaction I get.
