Atheist Condoms: Nothing Gets Past Reason

A month ago, I mentioned that the University College London Union Atheists, Secularists & Humanists were planning to hand out condoms with skeptic-friendly phrases on them at their school’s fall organizational fair.

Alex Gabriel reports that a winning slogan was chosen and the reception has been overwhelmingly positive:

Clever marketing :)

Now I’m wondering: If the Christian groups on campus did the same thing, what would their slogan say…?

    The Christian version?

    “Jesus got nailed before before you.”

    This kills the mood I’m sure.

      Sorry Don,  I swear I posted my comment before reading yours, NEVER SUSPECTING that someone had more or less beat me to the punch.  Brilliant minds do think alike I suppose. ..

      Of course it isn’t sufficient, you must then spread god’s goodness;-)

    Oh man… I read over these comments and it’s just an embarassment of riches when it comes to opportunity for humor… I must practice restraint.  Could someone please market a “condom balloon” as a clever workaround?  I mean, same product, just put that on the label.  That way everyone is absolved of the guilt if it happens to be used responsibly for a “purpose to which it was not intended”… sheesh.

    Perhaps the Christian condoms could read:    
    All Rise!

  • vexorian

    I liked the idea to add a small font legend to the condoms if the “Nothing gets past reason” slogan was used.

    “* But condoms are only 97% effective.”
