“Coexist” and “What Would Jesus Do?” bumper stickers, metal stick-ons of the Jesus fish, a Darwin fish or the Flying Spaghetti Monster, faith-based window clings, a rosary dangling from your rearview mirror … these are just a few of the symbols we slap onto our vehicles. Why do we do this?
The reasons vary. According to a piece by Ken Chitwood in the Houston Chronicle, it's less about our theology and more about our identity: a “brand” loyalty and sense of community surrounding it, a sense of our own identity, a way of defining our dominion: “The desire to smack that “In case of rapture, car is yours” sticker on your tailgate is less about a belief in pre-millennialism and, oddly enough, more about a collective human need to be known.”
