It appears that Rachel Kane, blogger for WTForever21.com is offended by Forever 21’s merchandise geared toward the owners Christian faith. Rachel says,
“But on my most recent visit to the Glendale Galleria’s Forever 21 store and then again while browsing their online catalog, I noticed a disturbing trend in the graphic tees. Some were just hinting at a shadow of religion, which I’ve seen before from them, but NOW? Now there are items going Holy balls to the wall with tops that have what reads like scripture on them. Amidst the forgettable crosses and Jesus love, a few of these tops jumped out at me, tapped me on the shoulder and whispered, “You are no longer in a store. Welcome to the Sunday morning service you did not sign up for. Now get to prayin’ sinner!”
I find Rachel’s comments to be ludicrous. Clearly from day one Forever 21’s foundation has been built on their Christian faith. Their shopping bags have John 3:16 written on the bottom of them, and they have always designed clothing that showcased their faith. Since we live in a godless society it is a breath of fresh air to know that this company is taking a stand and is using their constitutional right of freedom of speech to spread the gospel through their merchandise. I represent Jesus Christ 24/7 and I am not ashamed. If you don’t like the messages that Forever 21 is conveying don’t go in their stores.
