You know, so many of the commenters praising this shirt sound asinine, and so many of the commenters denouncing it sound self-righteous and prudish.
The fact of the matter is that the shirt is clever and the humour is pretty irreverent, but it's poorly executed. The incongruity between Jesus and everything else sounds good in theory, but it smacks of a lack of effort in this case. I don't see how it's particularly offensive, though, because it's not like Jesus is eating a baby or something. Frankly, it's no more offensive than "JC was a Streaker," which is an amazing design. The only difference is that " JC was a Streaker" was flawlessly executed, and this one is a little meh.
But if the shirt does scandalizes you in some way, you need to get off your high horse. Jesus may be "your LIFE" (overzealous capitalization included) but that doesn't automatically make him off limits to everyone else. Tom Cruise and Jenna Elfman may believe in aliens as part of their faith, but it doesn't mean I can't rent "Mars Attacks" once in a while and have a few laughs, now does it?
That little diatribe aside, the shirt really isn't all that well done. If it were well designed (and perhaps if it included some way of more explicitly showing that the shirt wasn't outright mocking ole J.C. -- like Satan falling off the balance beam in the background, or something), then maybe I'd buy it. As it stands, I had a chuckle, but that's as much praise as it'll get from me.

Argh. Thanks for all the comments and critiques! Being on vacation has limited my time, so the only adjustments I've been able to make are:
a) adding new colours
b) making the "invisible" arm more distinct
Here it is:
Sorry it's so late in the game. Maybe I can find time this evening to make more changes and try to submit the altered design without it getting rejected. But I tell ya, I don't see it happening...

You know which adult used to wear braces? Tom Cruise.
I'm just sayin'.

I have a very irrevent sense of humour too, but I'd feel a little weird wearing this. I love it so much, but I just... couldn't bring myself to wear it.
However: If you made it a little more clear (visually) that the message was "Hitler is a douche" and not "Hitler was an adorable little scamp," then that, m'friend, would be a führer of a different colour.
