Anti-Christian Jeans Are Hot Items Among Sweden’s Youth

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — New anti-Christian jeans have become hot sellers in Sweden.

They’re known as Cheap Monday and have a trendy tight fit and low price. They also have a logo that features a skull with a cross turned upside down on its forehead.

The logo’s designer admits he has a “great dislike” for organized religion and said the logo is an “active statement against Christianity.”

The predominant Lutheran Church of Sweden is reacting with a shrug. A spokesman said he doesn’t think the logo is “much to be horrified about.” But some Christians believe that approach is too soft. One vicar said the logo is a “deliberate provocation” against Christians.

In some cases, buyers have ripped off the Cheap Monday labels, or even returned the jeans once they realized what the logo represents.
