BAD JEANS: Since the '60s, denim has sent a message. But rarely has the message been as offensive as the one now being offered by Swedish designer Bjorn Atldax. Creator of Cheap Monday jeans, Mr. Atldax has added a Satanic logo--with a cross turned upside down on the forehead of a skull--to his product specifically to make Christians angry, he recently told the Religion News Service. "I think organized religion is not good for the society," he explained. The jeans have proved so popular with Swedish youth that Mr. Atldax has announced plans "to make something anti-Hindu because I think its caste system is awful." But he is not considering any anti-Islamic designs because, he observed, "there are already a lot of anti-Islamic sentiments." And why pile on?

Actually, I think as dumb as the idea is, he's smart enough to know that while Christians will voice their offense at his jeans (which will give him the attention he craves), Muslims would kill him for an anti-Islamic message.
