Let me stress that this is actually connected in no way to the earlier post about 8-Bit Christmas music.
But a quick google of “8-Bit Jesus” brought me to this CafePress store, heralding the apocalypse. Was it a joke? I had to find out.
The 8-Bit Jesus homepage clarifies:
These charming, respectful images are the ultimate attire for anyone who loves classic video games. 8-Bit Jesus is distinctive, but not preachy. Irony-compatible, too, if that’s your thing!
So there you have it. They’re earnest, but atheists officially have the makers’ permission to think they’re cool too.
Right? It’s kind of Castlevania-ey. Jesus is all, “You don’t belong in this world!” And Satan’s all, “What is man?” Beautiful, beautiful.
