God’s Tees

Recently in Mount Vernon, Ohio, students wore T-shirts to school that said “I support Mr. Freshwater—God” on the front, in support of their science teacher. Mr. Freshwater is under fire for keeping a Bible on his desk and allegedly burning crosses onto students’ skin with a Tesla coil as well as teaching creationism. God, when questioned about the provenance of the shirts, acknowledged that he is sending messages on T-shirts, citing a need to “reach people where they’re at,” and adding “Check out my website, www.godstees.com.”
