Have any of you picked up a maxim magazine just to thumb thru.We went to a friends house today and he had a maxim magazine on his table. (The latest addition thru the mail) I being curious and bored (his wife was shopping) I picked it up. Not to tacky on the pictures (more skin than I show but looking thru it as an artist point of view) Then I actually read it. I was horrified. It made me want to say a lot of really bad words. There was a tasteless joke on the joke page about Jesus and a bar. ( can post if needed I took the magazine with his permission so I could quote it to certain people to help me on this mission) then I turned to another article about unusual amuzement parks and they had a picture of Jesus and the disciples on a tiltawhirl with a quote Judas said tis ride wasnt scary he betrayed me. They had a list of unusual amuzment parks and listed the Holy and Experience in Orlando Fl. (They wanted to know why they didnt have a Noah's flume water ride?) I am writing the magazine and trying to get more to do so. I was speechless for a while this afternoon.
I don't think I've ever seen one, just checked out the website.. I guess you could just consider the source... But isn't it strange how they think it's so funny to mock Jesus? So often I've seen this in movies, or Comedy channel stuff.. awful.
I wish I had a scanner I could scan the picture you would be mad too.
Wow, I have actually read/thumbed through maxim (work in a fire Department) and never seen that. I am just shaking my head in wonder at what this world is becoming.

Look at the current issue. This is the first time I thumbed thru one and actually read anything. I have seen them at this friends house and take the cologen samples and rub them on my son (my favorite one) and he thinks he is a big boy.
It isn't a nice magazine. Most of the articles are or can be kind of nasty, but that is how it is set up. I refer to it as a mild version of Playboy.

I guess what got me was the joke most of all then I flipped the page and found the picture. Then I stopped reading it and went off. I have foot in mouth dieases whe I get comfortable around people. I went up to my knee today. I called his wife later and told her andshe was going to stop him from getting it.
I've never heard of it, and I guess, by what I'm reading here, I don't want to hear of it.

I get all of my fashion advise from Maxim!!!!!!! I can't read the articles I just look at the pictures.... hahahahaha (I couldn't pass saying that one.) Personally I would not have the magazine in my house. I have a son that I am trying to raise to have respect for women. You can't have respect when all they are is a sexual object. I am not surprised they don't respect Jesus. All the mag is..... is another version of soft porn. But to be fair.... I will not read most women's mags too.....
