Dress-up Jesus Decried as Sacrilegious

ø

Some people
are outraged over a sacred symbol that is being sold for laughs.

The novelty item gives buyers the chance to dress up Jesus in different
outfits.

"I did a double take. It just seemed unbelievable to see something
like that," said Gerry, a man who didn’t want to use his last name.

From a distance, the item looks like a kid’s dress-up game. But when
you look closely, it is a magnetic Jesus dress-up figure.

"
I basically stood there speechless," Gerry said.

Gerry stumbled upon the dress-up Jesus at an Urban Outfitters store at
the King Of Prussia Mall.He said he was shocked by the magnetic game
showing Jesus on the cross, clad in underwear with interchangeable outfits
like a devil costume,
a skull T-shirt and a hula skirt.
