So, as it is, I think that fucking pillow sucks, I slept at my moms one time and she has a few, and they are legit SUCKY lumpy shit... so I'm watching this stupid commercial this morning, and notice dude is flaunting his religion, like weirdly, making a point that he is Christian, ergo, you unsuspecting good Christians should buy my shitty pillows.
am I wrong on this?? it's hanging out almost unnaturally so he can appeal to a certain demographic????

The guy use to snort crack...so what did you expect???

Many people would be ashamed by this story. Lindell tells it all the time. “I was like, ‘Wow, drug dealers care!’ ” he says. “That’s what it felt like, this incredible intervention.” The moment wasn’t the end of his drug abuse, which started in his 20s when he owned bars and stretched through the early years of MyPillow, the Chaska, Minn., company he founded in 2005 to fulfill his dream of making “the world’s best pillow.” It was, however, his low point. It was when he realized that abusing crack and running a business weren’t compatible in the long term and vowed to get better.

Who me? I’m 6’10” pal!
I remember watching a clip on YouPorn where the girl had this huge cross hanging between her boobs. The guy made her turn the chain around to put the cross on her back before he fucked her. Guess he felt guilty or something.

My old GF used to wear a cuisifix . I used to hate going in for some tits and see Jesus looking at me . I used to swing it around the back of her neck when she wasn’t paying attention.

It's a fucking smokescreen, you nailed it! The place where I work recently got bought out by a group that touts themselves as a family oriented, Christian company. A few of the guys I work with are stoked about it, but it's such a sham. So fucking obvious, they put up this fucking goody-two-shoes holier than thou front so they can fuck you over any way they want. Religion is a crock of fucking shit, all of it. It's unbelievable to me that so many bright, intelligent people buy into this crap!

That guy looks like a goddamn creep the way he's hugging on that pillow, practically humping it in the commercial. Skeevy fucking guy!

I've noticed that too. It's the pandering equivalent of putting a fish on your bumper. It bugs me too.

Same deal as overrated Steelers HC who always has to have that cross showing on the gametime sidelines. Fuck em all if they have to prove, flaunt, foist or pander their "faith" to others.

Recently bought a couple of these Serta Down Illusion pillows to replace some old worn out goose down pillows. They really do compress like down pillows. Paid $15 each at Big Lots. They're actually great - and not just for the money

Ahhh the new religion of being offended by everything. That's all it is. You/me have been conditioned be be afraid and offended by things that dont matter. Maybe he is offended by people that dont wear big ol crosses. Its the same thing just the other side of the coin or argument, (and his opinion or belief just as valid as your opinion or non belief). Its just not worth it. Turn off the tv. Ignore it. It does not matter. Its probably a marketing ploy. And if it isnt who cares, the guy wants to wear a cross. Arent we supposed to be tolerant of people that are different? I dont know, its just what ive been told lately. Dont give it any of your energy or happiness. Live and let live.....

The great thing about our country is that people are free to express their faith.
I don't believe in ghosts or UFOs, but I don't get offended or angry at people who do.

All those dudes with cross tattoos aren't evangelizing and reading scripture on Sundays.
It's just a necklace.

I saw a YETI, and a YETI saw a man...
As long he is making shitty pillows, and not hurting small animals or children I say live and let live.

He also employs over a 1,000 people and gives to a lot of charities as well.

If Jesus, or as our brothers to the south call him "HeySeuss" brought to a happy place in his life, away from all the shit he apparently was into, I say this is a great thing. My 2 cents.
