Default I wrote Jesus" in Google search and now I am very upset.

There is a website called "Jesus fashion dress up", which makes fun of our Lord.Different garments can be dragged with the mouse to "dress up Jesus in the Cross'
What vile person can do such thing.?
And what can be done about it?

Any ideas?

This shows that Satan is alive and well and doing his utmost to destroy/discredit the
saving sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ. I think strongly protesting is about all that can be done, other than pray for the soul that came up with such a vile and blasphemous idea.

You could take up hacking and disable the website. A virtuous "worm" may be nice. Or abstain from the internet in reparation of such blasphemies.



..... maybe both.

In a world where a mother can legally have her fully awake unborn child butchered alive in her womb by some idiot in a labcoat ..... there is absolutely nothing out there that suprises me. People might think they are getting away with all of this stuff, but they are only kidding themselves.

Just imagine if this was a game involved Muhammad. Not too long ago there was a fighting game where you can choose from the different gods, prophets or deities. Of course Jesus, Buddha, and Muhammad were among the characters.

I wish I could be surprised, but I'm not. There's just so much evil, and what's sad is that people don't acknowledge that evil is even evil. I can imagine some misguided people thinking that "it's just a joke" and that we have no sense of humor. Well, not about that... not when the One I love was whipped and beaten bloody beyond recognition so that they can be forgiven for sins such as their stupid "game". The price He paid, if we could only fathom!

As the children at Fatima were asked to do , we should make reparation to God in prayer and sacrifice.

[email protected] is the email address of the site that "normal bob smith" links to.

Here is two emails I am considering sending:

[girldressupgames.com]
Dear Sir or Madam,

I do not know if you are aware that a web designer by the name of "normal bob smith" links to you from his website jesusdressup.com I find his site offensive and unworthy of any support. Please understand that while I have nothing against you, your company or your website, I will be boycotting it and informing friends, coworkers and fellow church members of your association with "normal bob smith". Furthermore I will conduct periodic web searches to find sites linked to yours and inform them of your association with "normal bob smith"

Sincerely,

[signed]

["normal bob smith"]

Mr. Smith,

Today I happened upon your website "jesusdressup.com"

I did not find it particularly amusing. Offering to dress up God in a devil suit is offensive to me. Of course, you do not care. Your own website tracks how busy you are by saying that when things are slow that "Help! Religious people give their god credit when I'm this low on jobs! Hire me quick!"
I am not in a position to hire you, so I am of little consequence. However, I would like to inform you that I will be contacting the people on your review list:

TShirtHell.com
BigJoy.com
Outgrabe.com
TroubleGirls.co.uk
Amber Ray
AChimera.com

To inform them of my boycott and my intent to inform friends, coworkers and fellow church members of your site and ask them to write to you past and future employers to let them know of our extreme distaste for your work. I am certain you will still find work, the world being as it is. But I will continue my distaste at your mocking of the God of the Universe. Also, I will be praying for you.

Nothing can really be "done about it." You could, as one poster suggested, boycott sites that advertise on the site. But, let's face it, if they're advertising on that site then they're probably not counting faithful Christians as their target consumers.
Essentially, the freedom for others to mock our faith is what protects our freedom to practice our faith.

Unfortunately there's nothing you can do. There's no authority you can really report them to. It's stupid really, Christians can be penalised for trying to evangelise yet these people get off with not so much as a slap on the wrist. What's sick is if the mass media knew of the site's existence they'd probably think it was rather funny.

In my opinion, the antichrist is alive and well in society. He isn't a living body, but rather, a belief and practice.

On a side note, can you imagine the uproar if there were a "play dressup with Mohammed" website?
