My post yesterday on the Solar imagery on my local megachurch's site prompted me to poke around seeing if other churches were following suit. I only spent a short time doing so, but even a hour or so poking around Google resulted in more than 100 church logos in which the Sun is featured prominently. I was astonished by how many conservative churches were using Solar imagery in place of traditional Christian imagery on their sites.
To be honest, I was hit by occasional flashes of fear seeing all of this unfold in front of my eyes. Corporate logos are one thing, but you don't expect to see such incredibly blatant symbolism used in what are supposed to be the last bastions of theological conservatism in this country. My usual disclaimer applies- I have no idea what is motivating these institutions to incorporate this imagery and I have no reason to believe to believe any of this is meant to promote Sun worship or subtly condition hundreds of millions of people to accept any rapidly approaching worldwide Solar regime.
That being said- are they f***ing kidding me?
