More Creepy Christian Retail
Apparently having nothing better to do, I was paging through the online Christian Dollar Store site when I found this Lion of Judah T-shirt. What struck me immediately, other than the shields and the choice of scripture (Revelation 5:5, Then one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed.") was the brilliant blue of the lion's eyes, which spurred me to waste even more time researching the very important matter of lion eye color. In case you wondered, it's typically a deep yellow or orange, although sometimes it looks like a sort of hazel. Cubs have blue eyes, which tend to turn at around six months. So, why the blue eyes here? Hmmm. What sort of person walks around in a T-shirt that says "My blue-eyed lion-God is going to kick your heathen ass, if he hasn't already?"
