Wherein I have a rare moment, and am actually proud to be an Episcopalian

Because no Episcopalian would EVER have one of these.  They are Inspirational Catholic Jesus Sports Statues, and they are available for $22.95 from








 describes them as "a wonderful way to reinforce Jesus "as friend" in everyday activities."  But I don't think Jesus should be helping that little girl with her golf swing. 

Nor do I think he should be teaching these little boys to play football in flip-flops.













"What a friend we have in Jesus.  Tackle him!" 

Oh sure, my Church may be run by hippies and heretics, but at least we don't have Inspirational Jesus Sports Statues.  What happened to the idea that you built things like this to remind people about Jesus?
