Having lunch with a friend, we were discussing religious literacy and he told me he saw a guy wearing a t-shirt that said:
“I Learned Everything I Need to Know about Islam on 911”
It amazes me still, how ignorant some can be, and they’re so proud of it!
Remove the “Need” part and it would be more honest:
“I Learned Everything I Know about Islam on 911”
In other words, pal, you don’t know much, so don’t advertise your ignorance.
Got me thinking about other “T-Shirt Religion” and what it seems to say:
“I Learned Everything I Know about God in Sunday School”
“I Learned Everything I Know about Religion from Sermons”
“I Learned Everything I Know about the Bible from the Bible”
“I Learned Everything I Know about LIFE from my Faith”
“I Learned Everything I Know about Patriotism from the Movies”
And, as we sadly know, for so many in our “entertainment is news” culture:
“I Learned Everything I Know … from FAUX News (or NPR, MSNBC, Highland’s Blog, etc)”
On the other hand, as my friend and I agreed, it may be better to simply wear a shirt that says:
“Love the Questions”
Just wear a shirt covered with Question Marks!
You can probably think of many more “confessions of ignorance” or better, “proclamations of knowledge” for T-shirts.
