Those folks, however, rarely bring such seditious ideas to market, for fear of being booed out of the bazaar. That didn’t stop mainstream chocolate maker Russell Stover, however, from marketing a chocolate cross.
Tony Jones, a Web-savvy theologian, blogs about the chocolate cross with a firm awareness of the line between irreverent and “just plain wrong,” and he places Russell Stover’s choco-cross on the latter side of the divide.
He writes: “I get kitschy Jesus. I get the Buddy Christ. That’s because I get irony. But I’m pretty sure that neither Russell Stover nor Target get irony. I’m pretty sure that they’re selling a chocolate cross without any sense of irony.”
Definitely looks that way.
