Yeah, saw this yesterday. Very twisted. Sad commentary on our culture.


Or 'their' culture.

I doubt that the real Satan would be so blatantly obvious and appear in the same caricatures and stereotypical imagery as Satan and demons are culturally depicted.

Lucifer was said to be a beautiful being of light, rather than appearing demonic or horrendous to casual onlookers.

Similarly, the Beast doesn't openly announce itself to the world as such, but rather deceives people and subtly gains control. (I'm also not aware of any everyday evildoers, such as terrorists or gang-members who openly announce it and give themselves away, or else they would be pretty terrible terrorists or gang members).

-

As far as the shoes, given that these are being released by a big name company like Nike, I wouldn't be surprised if there's a lot of commotion over that.

Lol I don’t think anyone is concerned about whether it’s actually him or not.

What is more concerning is the progressive acceptance and embracing of the demonic in society.

I haven't knowingly supported anything Nike in years. I'll pick up a Nike golf ball if I find one though, to use as a 1-shot practice ball. But I have friends that won't even touch it if they see one.

Link in the OP has this update:
Correction: This article has been updated. The original version said Nike collaborated on the creation of the Nike “Satan Shoe. Nike told fact-checking outlet Snopes “Nike did not release nor design these shoes.”
Still wouldn't support Nike, though.

Thanks for posting the correction. Honestly I immediately thought the satan shoes deal was dubious, but posted my long time sentiment anyway, the O.P. notwithstanding.

Yep.

What is tolerated will be embraced, and soon after celebrated. I believe, here in the States, we are moving into the celebration stage of things as it relates to the topic at hand.

I decided several years ago to rid my self of all things NIKE and have been no worse for it. That company truely embodies the slogan, "...its all about the money" I got tired of their "We are opposed to it/him/her/them...oh wait, we can make money with this limited release...oh ok, well now we support it/him/her/them"

From Snopes' article on this subject:

MSCHF buys the shoes from Nike, then MSCHF artists make their own creative modifications before selling them.

[You] can also find “Jesus shoes” at jesus.shoes (but those are sold out).

There's a goat down the road that is wearing two pair.
There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.

My mom made me wear Sears Toughskin jeans. Now that’s where evil lies.

It’s gorilla marketing, basically free advertising. I never would have heard of these shoes if not for this decades old technique. Rage drives clicks. Besides driving clicks the point is that my parents hate Nike/lil NozX so they must be cool. :pipe:

I hated the way Toughskins made my knees sweat.

Also, the fabric would eventually tear just above those awful squares of knee armor.
