Say you’re a good ol’ boy, a real hillbilly hunter. All you want to do is spend your weekends out in the woods, hiding behind a shelter with a
six-pack case keg of beer while they wait for wild deer to come eat the free food you leave out for them … so you can shoot them. All of this sounds like a great life, but you were raised in a good old fashioned Baptist family, and you feel like drinking on a Sunday betrays the covenant between you and God that your parents spent so darn long building up (before they got divorced, of course). Well, worry no more! Now there’s a group you can join that will shepherd your outdoor adventures into the greater spirit of the lord!
(CHRISTIAN OUTDOORSMAN: For all your camo bible needs.)
Meet CHRISTIAN OUTDOORSMAN, a web site dedicated to discussion, fellowship and, most clearly, selling sporting goods to avid hunters and fishermen who also happen to be avid bible thumpers. The convergence of faith and firearms is unique, though the two make more common bedfellows than one might initially imagine. After all, churches and hunting are both big in rural America.

Mixed Martial Arts is quickly becoming one of the world’s fastest sports, and different disciplines are taking the forefront across America, catering to customers as individual markets evolve. Well, niche businesses like clothing companies aren’t far behind, and Philadelphia-based MMA outfitter Jesus Didn’t Tap is targeting a very specific group: Bible thumpers … or bible beaters … or holy warriors. Oh, whatever. Pick your own religious pun.
Jesus Didn’t Tap markets a full crop of some 20-odd t-shirts (they do both performance and loose wear) for men and a few odd items like shorts, hats and sweatshirts. All of them are adorned with brash biblical messages, ranging from the mundane — “Blood, Sweat and Prayers” — to the overt — “How Do You Train,” with a picture of Jesus hauling his own cross.
Regardless of the religious fervor incorporated in the message all of the shirts transmit a cruel undercurrent of sincere irony: How can a company revolving around the popularity of the world’s most gruesome fighting sport base in message in the symbolism and idolatry of history’s greatest pacifist?
