So ‘Jesus loves nachos’ was trademarked this year.
I know I’m late to the table for this one (pun intended). However, I do own the last ‘Jesus loves nachos’ merchandise made available before the trademark was enforced.
Some Christians here never liked the graffiti. They probably won’t like this either. But doesn’t it make Jesus a talking point? Perhaps they should build a bridge and get over it.
I’ve heard people say perhaps it’s safer if Jesus preferred burritos. But I checked and we’re ok – it’s a textiles and clothing trademark: I can still talk about Jesus and nachos. We could even serve nachos and talk about Jesus. Look out for Jesus and Jalapeños.
I’ll just avoid T-shirts and tea towels.
This is not the first time Jesus has been trademarked in Australia. There’s ‘Hipster Jesus’, ‘Ninja Jesus’, ‘Hotel Jesus’, ‘Jesus Juice’ and ‘Jesus Jeans’.
What’s in a name? Why does a two-thousand year old person’s name still have traction?
Perhaps Australia’s more impressed with him than we might acknowledge.
So I’ll keep talking about Jesus – because there’s no substitute for the goods and services he offers: forgiveness, access to God, and a fresh start at being human in a world full of awesome things like nachos.
