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.”

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
