From time to time I see a bumper sicker going by this design, and using this one word called COEXIST. The reason this is brought up is that, the very ironic thing of what has been going on in Boston this week, with the recent horrible bombing attack towards the end of the 117th Boston Marathon and that it turned out the two suspects are from Chechnya and are Muslim as well. One of the sad things about what has taken place is that, one of the people killed, the little 8-year-old, attended a school which had up to people of up to 83 different backgrounds. Or another one of the victims killed came from of all places, China. Or that the third victim killed managed a restraunt in a city that had persons of all different backgrounds calling it home. What is needed is not a bumper sicker by that one word, coexist, but the need to deal with the fact that each human heart can not only do great acts of evil, but also great acts of kindness. The answer is not doing a bumper with the word coexist, but to come to terms with the reality that we humans can very well do both.
Isn’t the Christian cross on the bumper sticker upside down?
I do not know. Have no seen the bumper sicker in a long while.
Went to the link and saw the cross was correctly upright. . .but I do recall clearly a coexist sticker where the cross was upside down. . .saw it in a parking lot in El Paso.
Yes we can all live together: “Former Republican U.S. presidential nominee Mitt Romney gave President Obama high marks for his remarks on the Boston Marathon bombings victims.”
There you have it!!
A more worthless bumper sticker existeth not.
Oh, forgot about Obamadork stickers.
Though I’ve always thought it would be fun to produce a version incorporating a swastika to see how people reacted.
Reminds me of I once went to a zoo that had chickens and a fox within the same cage and the sign outside said “Coexist”.
I asked the worker how they managed to keep the two species together in peace.
“Well, we have to put in a couple new chickens every couple of days”
Nortex, that post is magnificent...and entirely correct.
Islam is a cancer on humanity and sooner or later it will have to be dealt with. If only we could convince these ill functioning folks to just sit there and die of their own inability to create anything quietly...but now, they insist on metastasizing.
I like the bumper sticker with the ‘C’ wrapped in a bomb vest & all the other symbols trying to run away. Very funny!
The “ironic” thing is that there is a REAL organization by the name:
Where`d you get that? It`d make a nice bumper sticker.
Sorry about the formatting. HTML & I do NOT COEXIST :-)
On my C5 Corvette I have the Coexist bumper sticker, but the word is spelled with gun manufacturers trade marks.

The Political Kiss of Betrayal
No one has ever written a philosophy of betrayal, unless it was Machiavelli who told kings and princes how to deceive their fellowmen. But his counsel was not actual betrayal, but just sheer worldly, pragmatic advise in which the useful became identified with the true. Actually, the pattern and the model of betrayal has been written -and forgotten. Take, for example, the principle upon which the Soviets (and G20 leaders today) conducted their international policy. It can be reduced to three principles: 1. Materialism; 2. Coexistence; 3. Betrayal at the moment of greatest friendship and coexistence.
First , materialism. Its basic principle is denial of God and the soul. God must be denied, because if there is a power other than the Party or the dictator, then men have other rights and duties under liberty than those given them by the Party (Like thinking about self-reliance; self-governance). The foundation of our rights and liberties as given in the Declaration of Independence is that they are given by God. The soul must be denied too by the Communists, because the soul contemplates and thinks for itself. But any personal thought which cannot be socially controlled must be denied by Communists in order that there be only one thought-namely, the Party thought.
The second principle is coexistence. This is a Soviet word, not the word of a free people. The latter never ask themselves if they should coexist. Such talk would be nonsense between Canada and the United States. Coexistence is a Soviet suggestion that relations which exist between the free people of the world who believe in decency, morality, honesty, and truth should be extended to the Soviet Union which Lenin said must use every lie, stratagem, ruse, and deceit in order to foster world revolution.
The basis of coexistence talk is given in an article published in the Soviet Union in 1954 by a certain Leontyvev. His argument was that the atomic bomb makes war mutually destructive of the powers which engage in it. The Soviets can no longer rely upon their mighty armies and those of the satellites to conquer the world. Hence, there must be "long periods of coexistences" with democratic and free people, until the historical moment arrives for the world conquest of communism. (Are we there yet?) The third principle is that the betrayal of those who fall for coexistence must be at the moment of greatest intimacy and friendship (Obama's promise). For example on August 31, 1939, the Soviets signed a pact recognizing the independence of Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia. On this occasion the Soviet Government published the following: "These pacts of mutual assistance strictly stipulate the inviolability of the sovereignty of the signatory powers, and the principle of non-interference in each other's affairs. We stand for the scrupulous and punctilious observance of the pacts on the basis of complete reciprocity, and we declare that all the spreading of nonsense about Sovietizing the Baltic countries is only to the advantage of our common enemies, and of all Soviet provocateurs."
The following year, the Soviets annexed the three countries. Is this pattern of betrayal new? Or does it follow a line which brought upon the world its greatest blackness? The model of deceit and betrayal was actually set by Judas. First of all, avarice was not his basic sin; it was materialism, or denial of spiritual values. The first mention of avarice as regards Judas comes at the very end of his life, though he is described as a traitor much earlier when Our Lord spoke of Himself as God, and foretold that he would suffer and die, rise and ascend again into heaven. When He refused to be King of the masses, when He refused to establish a kingdom based on earthly bread, Judas broke, for he had nothing but contempt for the spiritual.
Then came coexistence. Never once during the public life did anyone know that Judas was the guilty man; when he spoke of the poor, some of the disciples joined in with him; and at the Last Supper when he left the table, it was thought that he had gone out to give money to the poor or buy food for the feast. His coexistence was so clever that only John knew who he was-and, of course, the all knowing Lord. Even the best were deceived.
The third stage came at the moment of greatest affection, when Judas kissed Our Lord and then delivered Him over to the soldiers. Sacred things can be betrayed only by some mark of affection and esteem. LET AMERICA BEWARE!
To pleas for coexistence, America must ask, "Wilt thou betray with a kiss?"
Just a little differently than the libs.
“...Coexist bumper sticker”
I have the t-shirt. Pure fun in public.
I like it.
So open to misunderstanding as a bumper sticker, though.
Beat you by 18 seconds! That is my favorite bumper sticker. I want to order 100 and overlay them on the ‘surrender to Islam’ co-exist sticker.
The car these two hijacked yesterday had a coexist bumper sticker.
Those are good. I couldn’t get the one I’ve seen to upload to photobucket for some reason. Oh well...
That’s the one!
They should proceed directly to the nearest mosque for their beheading. Be sure to take video of the efforts!
Is that pic for real?
Coexistence is impossible unless one’s talking about the coexistence of Jews and Christians.
Muslims are incapable of assimilating into a Judeo-Christian nation.
Round them up and send them back to the land of camels and sand dunes.
Used to watch the Venerable Bishop Sheen with my dad in the 50s
I spit chaw on everyone I see. Really.
Note the "Darwin" applique in the lower right corner. Clearly tolerance is a one way street with this liveral
