SILVER SPRING, Md. — Adventist Book Centers around the world are struggling to keep up with the onslaught of frenzied Father’s Day shoppers, desperate to buy the very latest in Adventist men’s apparel for their dads.
Sold exclusively as a set and fully sanctioned by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, the accessory box consists of a full-color Beast of Revelation tie, Pathfinder cuff links and a pocket square boldly imprinted with the denominational logo.
“I will be greatly disappointed, to say the very least, if they run out of stock before I get my dad his beast tie,” said Adventist shopper Decepscio Nado, waiting outside his local ABC store in Glendale, California. “And those Pathfinder cuff links are the perfect way to thank him for being Pathfinder drill sergeant all those years.”
Price seems to be no object for the eager Adventists. “$18.44 is a small price to pay for such a fun way to bare your Adventism,” said Elena de Blanca. “They should start doing red dresses with Adventist logos for Mother’s Day. Ellen White would totally have approved.”
