as if heavenly images wasn’t bad enough, i just received this from the hilarious and blogless steve case. steve points out a couple very troubling facts:
1. there’s a glow around ‘the king’, but not around ‘the King’ (ooh, look at that, i put a cap in there — be happy, scot mcknight)
2. isn’t that the elvis from the photo with nixon?
3. they’re out of stock???!!!

My pastor and I had a good laugh over about this just now. Thanks for making our morning!
This brings a whole new perspective to the title of Rob Bell’s book “Velvet Elvis”!
Must have been Jesus during his emergent period.
I have made the elvis and jesus image my desktop background.
I just did a whole velvet Elvis lesson with my youth the other night. (Based on Rob Bell’s introduction). I made my group paint their own Velvet Elvis (we used black construction paper) and then they had to talk about thier faith as if it were a velvet Elvis painting. The two most interesting comments I got were: “My dad won’t let me hang my velvet elvis in the house.” and “My friend’s velvet elvis keeps telling her that my velvet elvis is ugly.”
Nice one Saulnier.
The two kings. How regal!
The issue for me is not capitals, but whether you’d also have halos around the Beatles and the Beach Boys!
And Celine Dion!
