Jesus Is On The Flash Drive, Tell Him What You Want

Certain Christians crack me up. In particular, the kind of people who think their religion should be taken very, very seriously and then come along with a gew-gaw marketed like this:
Keeping your faith close to you shouldn't have to be a challenge.

That's why we've created the Bible Cross, a brand new way to hear the Bible at home or on the go. It's a USB memory stick that contains digitally recorded audio of renowned actor, the Voice of the Bible, Alexander Scourby reading the entire unabridged King James Bible, both New and Old Testaments. That's 72 hours of Bible Study, in one respectfully attractive package.

Only the Amazing Bible Cross lets you put the entire audio Bible on your MP3 player or iPod®, hassle-free!

Each Bible Cross comes with special software to help you transfer the audio Bible onto your iPhone®, iPod®, or MP3 player. Now this may sound a little technical, but it's actually very simple - put the Bible Cross in your computer's USB slot, double click on the software, and away you go!

There's nothing quite like it! Bible Cross makes a great gift for someone you love, and is perfect for Church groups and Bible study classes.

In today's busy world, it's hard to find the time to study the Bible every day. But with the Bible Cross, you can play the audio Bible when you do other things, whether it's at work or at home, whenever you're by the computer. Need to listen on the go? Bring the wearable Bible Cross with you, or simply transfer the audio Bible to your iPod®. Then you can listen while you walk, jog, or even play golf!

That’s hilarious. Someone made a cross-shaped cover for a flashdrive and suddenly it’s the neatest thing since the glow in the dark cross necklace. You know, I'd be a much better Christian if I didn't have to lug that big heavy book around with me everywhere. Thank heavens for the Bible Cross because there's nothing quite like it!

I love it when Christians go to market. Folks: you don't need a lot of stuff to be close to God. You don't need gadgets and symbols to be a person of faith. And a wearable flash drive won't help you find more time to study the Bible. That's something you have to do all on your own.
