Mixed Bag MKE, a company in Wisconsin, is throwing a “Swiftie Super Bowl Eve Party” (named after singer Taylor Swift), and is promoting “devotional prayer” candles, where the faces of Christ and the Virgin Mary are replaced by celebrities. In fact, the company has a slew of these blasphemous “devotional candles.” These include depictions of Our Lord or Our Lady with the faces replaced by celebrities. As if this were not bad enough, many of them are immoral movie actors and actresses, pop singers, sports players, many of whom are pro-abortion and pro same-sex “marriage.”
Here are a few examples of different depictions on “prayer candles” from the company’s web site (replacing an image of Our Lord, Our Lady, or one of the saints):
- Ruth Bader Ginsburg (late pro-abortion Supreme Court justice, dressed as a nun)
- Ted Lasso (a fictional sports-comedy character, in place of Saint Joseph)
- Olivia Rodrigo (a pro-abortion actress and songwriter in place of Our Lady)
- Alex Trebek (a game-show host and sports commentator in place of the Sacred Heart of Jesus)
- Talor Swift (who has written immoral songs, and openly supports abortion and homosexual sin, in place of the Immaculate Heart of Mary)
- “Ken” (the male character of the “Barbie” doll franchise, wearing an open shirt and sporting a halo)
There are at least a dozen of such items being sold on the company’s web site. Each candle’s description starts off with “Saint [person’s name]” and names each celebrity as “patron saint of [e.g. cool].” This is an offensive attack against religion. And the company doesn’t seem to care.
When one offended user wrote on the company’s Facebook page to complain, Mixed Bag merely responded : “Thanks for your concern, but they’re one of our best sellers and we’ll keep them on the shelves. You don’t have to purchase one [.]”
They are putting blasphemous profit over the honor of God and the saints, and the sensitivities of Catholics. Do you think this company would do similar mockeries of other religions? No, this is a direct attack on The Sacred Heart of Jesus and The Immaculate Heart of Mary, and we must act!
Please sign our petition, and forward this email to as many people as you can to get these items removed.
