The Apocalypse is Coming -- Get the T-Shirt

Hat tip to Evangelical Right for this one.

MEDIA ADVISORY, Sept. 28 /Christian Newswire/ -- The CEO of a Florida-based Christian internet clothing company has some strong words of caution for the fashion industry. Says Rick Wade, founder and CEO of Second Coming Clothing Co. to leaders of the high-fashion apparel market: “Don’t be too quick to bring your concepts for the spring fashions to the world! The fashions revealed through the drama that has played out over the last two weeks at the World Premier of Spring Fashions in New York and Madrid respectively, will never make it in the marketplace.”

Wade warns that God is about to change the world’s perspective of what is fashionable and moral. “Events will occur soon in this country and around the world that will severely curb our culture’s appetite for fashion driven clothes that the world experts determine are ‘in’ and ‘cool,’” he says. “Clothing that more adequately reflects a Godly nature will become sought after as God changes the hearts of His people through the cataclysmic nature of events that are about to unfold.”

Adds Wade, “We are seeing astounding events unfold before our eyes throughout the world, fulfilling scripture about the ‘end times’ described in the Bible as taking place just prior to the return of Our Lord Jesus Christ in His Second Coming. God established His moral code. He is going to send strong messages through natural disasters and other catastrophic events to this country. They will draw our attention back to Him and remind us of His code of conduct, described in the Bible. Nothing that Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, Tommy Hilfiger, Howard Stern, or the hundreds of other self-appointed spokesmen for society can say or do anything that can change God’s purpose.”

So now the rapture will only take up people wearing the right t-shirt. Or will Jesus frown on your Tommy Hilfiger pants? Who knew God was a fashion snob?

You've got to wonder how bad their sales are that they have to resort to 'the world is ending -- get the commemorative t-shirt!' as a pitch. Twenty years from now, people will be looking at these things and asking themselves, "When do I get to wear this?"

These rapture righties once again outmaneuver all attempts at parody. I was reading this and thought how funny it would be if it weren't real.

They say that Christ is all loving, but they may be on to something with the Hilfiger pants.
