Christotainment

Several of you should like this radio broadcast.

"In Christian tradition, Jesus Christ is The Logos, The Word. But he's now about to become the logo of the biggest marketing campaign ever seen in Australia, called Jesus. All About Life. Daniel Willis of the Bible Society NSW, and Sharon Williams of Taurus Marketing, are co-ordinating a media blitz that aims to revive Jesus' popularity with the public. But how will the campaign address the requirement of Christians to change the world for the better? As well, speaking from Montreal in Canada, is Shirley Steinberg of McGill University. An arch critic of consumerism, she explains the term 'Christotainment' with reference to her collection of talking Jesus dolls."

My sound isn't working right now, but what I read there kind of pissed me off.


The only way Christians can change the world for the better is to denounce their religious beliefs. :etjesus:

It's one thing to simply enjoy a style of life that one enjoys, but it's another thing altogether to refer to another person's choice as "wrong" or to rationalize their behavior as being pathological or resulting from some sort of inadequacy or failing so as to create a sense of superiority or separation as yet another projection of a personal fear or control issue.

bah! Australia is quite a secular country, i can't see this floating.

However, it's always trying to emulate America (in the media at least) so anything could happen.
