This idiot gave up Jesus for Lent

EXPLANATION

From Wikipedia:

Lent, in some Christian denominations, is the forty-days of fasting and prayer before Easter. The forty days represent the time Jesus spent in the desert.

The purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer—through prayer, penitence, almsgiving and self-denial—for the annual commemoration during Holy Week of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus.

Many modern Protestants consider the observation of Lent to be a choice, rather than an obligation. They may decide to give up a favorite food or drink (e.g. chocolate, alcohol) or activity (e.g. going to the movies, playing video games) for Lent, or they may instead decide to take on a Lenten discipline such as devotions, volunteering for charity work, and so forth.

This shirt is a statement of irony: giving up for Lent the only reason that we have Lent in the first place.

Plus, it has tongue-in-cheek sacreligious overtones, and that can be fun, too.

For Lent you give up something you love so you can practice self discipline, for Jesus.

But what do you love more than Jesus? Nothing.

Ha!

Loophole.
