The true horror: Passion of the Christ merchandising
Holger Szesnat referred me to a the Mikra discussion group for some ebay links to some extraordinary merchandise, mugs, oval pewter pocket reminder (pocket piece), an oval pewter lapel pin, and a pack of 25 witness cards. I suppose one should have expected all this, but it hadn't occurred to me that we'd be experiencing the true horror of Passion mugs! I'm afraid there's a whole web site devoted to this stuff, ShareThePassionOfTheChrist.com. The motto used on all this tat is "Dying was his reason for living", which, if you ask me, is pretty dubious theologically.
