The New Crusades: War of the Dungarees

First, there was Allah Akbar Jeans, now Jesus will make his second coming in his:

(And it's right here in Dinah's hood.)

Proclaim your faith on your backside.

A fledgling Palmer Lake clothing company hopes that's exactly what you'll want to do.

Castle Rock Jeans & Apparel, 780 Colorado Highway 105, is rolling out high-end jeans with a back pocket decorated with a Christianrelated symbol and a corresponding biblical verse inside the waistband.

The line, called His Spirit Jeans, fills a market niche for Christian clothes while spreading the Gospel, said company President Bob Beard, 66.

"We want to be in good taste, fashion-balanced and at the same time impart an inspirational message," Beard said.

You can get your Jesus Jeans here. This is the pair Dinah will soon be sporting on her backside...

Another pair not-so-subtly combines American nationalism and religion. The symbol: the presidential seal. The verse: Psalms 33:12 - "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."
