Titanic Enterprises uses parodies of famous corporate logos to market a nondenominational Christian message, taking a pop-culture hint from record labels, skateboard companies, and other businesses that have been piggybacking on corporate brand recognition for years. If you think there’s something odd — or humorous — about seeing the familiar Crest toothpaste logo revised to read, “Christ: Whitens Hearts, Freshens Lives,” Mr. Bubble reworked as a satanic “Mr. Trouble,” or the UPS logo altered to read, “JPS: Jesus Personal Savior” (he delivers!), you’re probably not alone. It’s a good bet that “¡Yo Quiero Jesus!” T-shirts are going to end up on more than a few nonbelievers, which is probably fine with Titanic and other manufacturers. As Brian Johnston, president of a Christian shirt company called Verses Wear, told Christian Retailing magazine, “There’s no reason that Satan should have all the good T-shirts.”

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
