Truth Is Stranger #27: Double-crossed


Nothing like taking an instrument of execution central to the mysterious redemption of the world and trivializing it by making it a MP3 player.

All together: Ugh.

Hat tip to Purgatorio.

You've got Lower Case T, what about the other 25 letters? Aren't they good enough?

Maybe it will act as a constant reminder to the listener and his environment of Christ and what He has done for us.
Sigh - wishful thinking (I'm not sure though that I would mind having one. It would give yet another opportunity to speak of Jesus).

people use an ipod so that they can select exactly what they want to hear, censoring unwanted songs. what does this say about a faith? cafeteria christians?

In all honesty, I don't think it's meant to appeal to Christians. The goth/vampyre subculture is big on black clothes and cross jewelry, and mainly appeals to teens/young adults, not coincidentally the demographic group with the money and interest to buy an mp3 player as a fashion accessory.

Which doesn't make it any less creepy--probably more so, since the goth culture is so creepy.
