While these Jesus statues are not meant to be laugh out loud funny, this is one of the funniest articles I have written up. Who would want one of these in their house, even if they were deeply religious?
They were found on my new ‘favourite’ website, the Catholic Shopper. The description for each statue is online, and all are written, I hasten to add, with no sense of irony.
All I can think of is the whole Michael Jackson ‘Jesus Juice’ debacle, especially when I look at the golf statue.
"These are the perfect gift for every young Catholic athlete. These statues portray Jesus actively participating with boys and girls in a variety of sports. A wonderful way to reinforce Jesus 'as friend' in everyday activities."
They are hoping to add statues with more diversity, not just Caucasian children, and playing different sports too.
Each statue comes with a name plate that reads, "Jesus Is My Coach."
Want to get in on the action but can’t face a statue? Fear not! There are also "God’s All Star" team frames available.
