Revolution rock
I am in a state of shock
So bad, bad rock
This here revolution rock
--The Clash
I had no idea that churches were using Che to sell Jesus. You'd think that Jesus' image could sell on its own. What does this say about branding? What a mess. Naomi Klein is going to have a field day with this one.

I was pretty shocked myself. It's a sad day when Jesus needs to be propped up by Che.

Tryin to make him cool...

Jesus will never be cool. He was too much a rebel. People just don't realize how countercultural he really is. Really, as far as revolutionizing a society, Jesus proposed much more sweeping changes to how people live than Che or Mao or Marx or Lenin ever did.
