What is the point of ^this image? 

Saw them advertised on Facebook, and had the exact same question. 

Apparently, there's a whole line of "Christian Jeans".

They will run you about $70.

Personally, I think it's in bad taste.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

And one wonders why Christ overturned the tables in the temple.  The moneychangers had nothing on today's "Christians"
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

Maybe they are filled with grace.  Perhaps we should venerate them.  :D

Now there's a cat frightened out of his mind by the pan-heresy of ecumenism.  I don't blame him.  Dogs can be scary, and are definitely dirtier and dumber.

^ Those are very intersting.  I remember when I was a kid, I watched a show called UFO on PBS.  It took place in "future" 1980s when a secret British organization called "SHADO" was secretly fighting aliens who wanted to take over earth.  There was an episode pertaining to worries about space junk.   It turned out an alien ship ended up hiding behind some of the junk.  I found it interesting that space junk became an issue a few years ago on account of the potential for pieces to hit the ISS or satellites or rockets.

no more "keep calm" memes. the company i work for has one, and when i think they pay an idiot to come up with something as original as "keep calm and rent..." about 7000 a month, while the maintenance staff that does the the actual work doesn't get a third of that, for the most part, i get really angry.
