Christianity On Chopblock Again

You never know where a statement against Christianity will come from anymore. This time it's in the form of jeans. Seems the logo designer of Cheap Monday Jeans doesn't like organized religion. So, he has come out against it with his logo that features an upside down cross on the face of a skull.

The label's makers say it's more of a joke, but Atldax insists his graphic designs have a purpose beyond selling denim: to make young people question Christianity, a "force of evil" that he blames for sparking wars throughout history.

Atldax is from Sweden where they recognize free speech. And, churchgoing has been declining there for years. But, the logo may cause other religious countries to drop the line of jeans.

Rev. Karl-Erik Nylund, vicar of St. Mary Magdalene Church in Stockholm is being outspoken on the subject. He says that he feels it's a deliberate provocation against Christians. Jews and Muslims aren't being provoked, but Christians are certainly being provoked. He says that Swedish companies do not respect Christianity as they do other religions.

Atldax doesn't think the logo will harm the sell of the jeans. He says he isn't evil, and his Mom doesn't think so, either. He just doesn't like Christianity.
