Church Culture III

We’ve been looking at an overall picture of general culture. There is a lot to be learned about popular culture by looking at the signs and the bumper stickers that people display

There are academic studies on bumper sticker culture. For some they just let us know where they recently vacationed. For others they describe a worldview. Of course we have the whole “I (heart)…” series. Here are some more:

  • 38Eat Well, Stay Fit, Die Anyway.
  • No Matter Where You Go, There You Are.
  • My Child Can Beat Up Your Honor Student.
  • Don’t Laugh – Your Daughter Might Be In Here. (On Old Truck)
  • Stamp Out Crime – Abolish the IRS
  • Dare to keep the CIA off Drugs.
  • Just say no to sexist Pro-Lifers.
