"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

It looks like a new form of extreme Christian T-Shirts has entered the market.
Along with ones saying "Got Jesus?" and "Fear God" are shirts declaring, "Satan Sucks," "My God can kick your god's butt" and "To Hell with the Devil."
"Our shirts are a little extreme, but I think God is spreading the word and having the youngsters shout out their faith," [Lori] Devins said. "I think teenagers want to evoke a response."
It looks like Lori Devins is part of a new "breed" of the faithful redefining a market that many Christian retailers have had not much success in--clothing. With her new extreme T-shirts depicting messages that may potentially offend your local high priest of paganism, (or rather those who do not appreciate Christianity) anyone proudly displaying those clothes on their body is bound to catch some attention from their peers (whether it be good or evil).
"There is a little bit of shock value to this because this is a generation that feels very strong in their convictions," Stellin said. "So if they believe in something, they are going to shout it out. Subtlety is not their strong point."
Ironically, it wasn't Jesus of Nazareth's either. Whether Devin's motivation was spiritual or financial one thing is quite certain--she is well ahead of the curve in her arena and it wouldn't be surprising to see her apparel quickly becoming the "norm" in her industry (religious that is).
