it says right there that he thinks christianity is evil, and that he wants people to question it. Of course the church is probobly raise hell (pun intended ;)) and try to get these products off the shelf.

What if jeans said that muslims where stupid, and that Allah was a cripple? You would be offended? We shall see.

Satanism and goth culture has become more of a fashion things than a movement, if you ask me. Of course there are still real Satanists out there, but most of the people wearing black do so mostly or purely for non-Satanist reasons.

As a resident of Scandinavia, I can tell you that there isn't much religion left here. Sure, Norway (and maybe Sweden, geez, I should know this:o!) has Protestant Christianity as its state religion, and sure, there are some Christians here who make quite a deal of themselves (not to mention that there are quite a few in our government:(), but in general, most people are atheists.

So it's not like the religious centre that the US is. Just to let you know.

Oh I know, because the artlicle says that too. The church will raise hell, and will not get anything done because of what little power they have.

I think Christianity is one of the most attacked religions. Everyone teaches religious freedoms and all of these things but whenever something comes up about the bible or the ten commandments, everyone says OH NO!!!111. But if someone says something about the quran everyone will jump all over them with "religious tolerance"

Very true MM....they are tolerant of any religion, as long as it isn't Christianity. Very 2-faced attitude IMO

Well Jesus was supposedly nailed to a cross and died for man's sins, which is sort of cheating since he came back again but anyway. Since then it's sort of come to symbolise Christianity so turning it upside down has come to represent an opposition or reversal of those values.

The Skull has an upside-down cross on it. That is supposedly the symbol of the AntiChrist. I don't see it as a big deal, but then again, I don't see Christianity as a big deal.

[COLOR=black]St. Peter was crucified on an upside down cross, so despite being used by Satanist, it has a more benign origin in Christianity (although benign might not be the most appropriate word to describe a crucifiction). [/COLOR]
