Look closer. Think harder. Choose the sound argument over the clever one.

File Under "Taken in Vain"

A stray moment finds me on YouTube. Across the top I see "Imitation of Christ Feature."

Wow! Cool! Thomas à Kempis classic work, eh?

Ah, no. A fashon show with goth models walking over bones ("road-kill looking") and texting on their phones. And crosses in the background.

Not to, um, stifle anyone's creativity, but "Distortion of Christ" is a little more appropriate.

The designer: "...might be the mood of what's happening in the world, what's happening politically ... and a little bit of hope."

In a free country, anyone can abuse Christ's name. Sad, but I won't riot or threaten anyone with death. (If we Christians are anything, it's predictable.)

Video here.
