Passion memorabilia

How’d I miss this press release announcing that “Bob Siemon Designs is manufacturing and distributing officially licensed products for Mel Gibson’s new film ‘The Passion of the Christ'”? Available are lapel pins and pocket reminders that feature a “beautiful rendition of the Cross from the movie.” At least they don’t have a sticker across them saying, “As seen in Mel Gibson’s ‘The Passion’!”

Well, I suppose Mel has to make a buck somehow since the movie didn’t have a lot of opportunities for product placements.

  1. I should think Mr. Gibson would be tithing. And I hope he is making contributions to the poor. It surely would be a nice gesture to donate all profits from the “memorabilia” to charity.

    Talking about press releases, the PR on this movie, sent directly to churches and religious organizations, is brilliant.

  2. Disillusioned words like bullets bark
    As human gods aim for their mark
    Made everything from toy guns that spark
    To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark
    It’s easy to see without looking too far
    That not much
    Is really sacred.

    While preachers preach of evil fates
    Teachers teach that knowledge waits
    Can lead to hundred-dollar plates
    Goodness hides behind its gates
    But even the president of the United States
    Sometimes must have
    To stand naked.
