Will the real Son of God please stand up?

Christathletes Who is more Christ-like, Dwayne Wade or Wayne Rooney? It’ll probably be hard to tell before the conclusion of the NBA Finals and the World Cup. The top image, which doesn’t appear to be an ad, comes from Dave Barry’s blog. The Nike ad is from The Hidden Persuader. UPDATE: The Rooney ad, from Wieden + Kennedy in London, is being met with some resistance in England. One MP says: “This is such a horrible image and is so horribly warlike that it can only be described as Nike being crass, offensive and insensitive as they try to hitch poor old Rooney to their commercial bandwagon. Wayne’s a good Catholic boy, and I think the obvious crucifixion nuance is one part of it, but the aggressive nature of the pose is something we could do without.”
