I have no idea if it is just an American thing or not, but from time to time, one will see cars with Jesus fish on the back. What do you think about them?

Additionally, what do you think about other religious propaganda (bumper stickers, Darwin fish, etc) on cars? Do you have anything that declares your religious belief on your car? Would you ever put something like that on your car? Do you think your driving habits might reflect poorly or favorably on your religious beliefs / non-beliefs?

I would love to put a FSM on my car but I'm afraid my car would be vandalized.

Where I live the fish on cars is a common sight. It's stupid.

Whenever I see the fish emblem on a car, I figure the driver is probably someone who would call me a non-Christian cultist. I'm really not into religious advertising on cars.

It makes me think that the person who does such a thing is more into the showiness or display of his religion rather than the humble adherence.

What is your opinion about Jesus fish on cars?
Are they supposed to point to the left or to the right?

But it's okay to be brash about your atheism?

I think the fish thing on cars is faddish, not unlike WWJD stickers and t-shirts, Baby On Board bumper stickers, and the big yellow SMILE posters. The bottom line is that someone saw all these things as a profitable moneymaker targeted to select consumers.
