Celebrating your God by stealing.

A slight rant I've wanted to share for a while:

You've seen those window decals of Calvin (y'know, of Calvin & Hobbes) relieving himself on various car company logos. You also know that these are extremely bootlegged; creator Bill Watterson once said something like "Only vandals and thieves have made money from Calvin & Hobbes merchandise," as the only official tie-ins ever done for the comic strip were the book collections and, briefly, calendars. (And no, I'm not going to link to any of these decals; you know what I'm talking about.)

Which makes me wonder why someone had the idea to do that other C&H decal of Calvin praying to a cross.

Hey, you? Yeah, you might be giving the wrong message about your religion if you think celebrating your God's love by stealing something is a good idea.

Hmph.
