While Christmas shopping yesterday, looking for gifts related to "Christ" I came across this disgusting, and offensive imagery on Etsy. It brought me to tears to think that such an item would be permitted to be sold here.

I believe that no matter what religion you are, you should be entitled to browse Etsy without having to view such perverse and disgusting merchandise. This item is highly offensive to devout Christians. I don't believe any religion should have to tolerate such sacrilege.

Please band together in the hope that Etsy can be a place of respect and tolerance for all religious beliefs, and put an end to such offensive items being advertised here.

You know - I'm not religous at all and I have a real problem with it. I would report it and try to have it removed. Really offensive, and I'm the most liberal person I know!

reported it as well ... though i do think that admin may not like this thread too much since it could be viewed as "calling out"?

This is one of the most offensive things I have ever seen. Its disgusting, and sheds a horrible light on Etsy. If you don't have it removed, I need to reconsider even being on this site to buy or sell.

It's offensive, but nobody has the right or entitlement to never be offended.

If Etsy closes this thread down I just want to say that there is no reason at all that we Christians need to be offended in that way on such a wonderful site such as Etsy. I could see it on Ebay-perhaps but not here.

UGH!!! Disgusting! But, since the link was posted, this will probably be shut down for calling out. Better to just report it and not give that seller the views that will come from this thread :o(

Oh, and one more thing...why is it that whenever Christians speak up about their faith being slammed, we are "intolerant" (that is the inference) That we do not honor freedom of speech etc...Well, I AM intolerant of disrespectful and mean spirited people, and I AM a Christian!

How about some respect?!
