Hard cash for tacky religious crap
The Freethinker is offering a free subscription to their newsletter if you can submit examples of religious kitsch for sale.
This has co-incided nicely with the article I saw on Planet Atheism (my apologies for not remembering the author) on the communion wafer for sale on eBay
Following that link, I found myself in the Christianity section on eBay.
It's an interesting section for not only is there religious tat, there are also beautiful alter fronts, chalices, statues and icons for sale.
Sub sections include: Bears, Dolls where you can find the "New US ARMY Holy BEAR Armed Forces PLUSH Stuffed" This delicious item is described as "THE ORIGINAL HOLY BEAR® US Army HOLY BEAR 8”H Plush includes a card that states The Army Vision consists of three interdependent elements: people, rediness and transformation. The United States Army Loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage... "
I don't doubt the courage ofthe US Army, but I do doubt the honor and integrity of the vendors of the item.
There is also the MUSICAL "JESUS LOVES ME" HEAVENLY LOVE PUPPY ">MUSICAL "JESUS LOVES ME" HEAVENLY LOVE PUPPY
In the Charms section, I think it's hilarious that right underneath the 3D Crystal Art Baby Jesus Virgin Mary Guadalupe + Base is found the Biker 666 Dead Sign Embroidered Iron On Patch
