‘Who Am I to Judge?’ Pope Francis T-shirt celebrates diversity and promotes archetypes not stereotypes

NEW YORK — Archetypes Executive Chairman Tom Gallagher, has unveiled an  iconic “Who Am I to Judge?” Pope Francis T-shirt. This universal message is especially timely with the recent news about Michael Sam and Ellen Page coming out. However, “Who Am I to Judge?” goes beyond the gay, lesbian and LGBT community. It’s a global message that applies to communities and archetypes everywhere.

“We created this T-shirt with a nod to Pope Francis and introduction to the concept of wanting people to be known for who they are according to their Archetypes, not based on someone else’s stereotype,” stated Gallagher.

The “Who Am I to Judge?” T-shirt celebrates Pope Francis’ response to a reporter’s question about gay priests in the church. With those five words, Pope Francis stepped away from the disapproving tone and showed a gesture of openness, which startled many in the Catholic world.

“Scolding is out in Rome; hand holding is in,” according to NBC News. “Pope Francis, also known as Time’s Person of the Year and Twitter’s #bestpopeever has rebranded the church as a welcoming, compassionate church for the poor as opposed to a church that nags people and is worried about rules and regulations.”

Archetypes tapped New York City-based graphic designer Glenn Wolk for his compelling imagery of iconic figures like the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and the Beatles. The result: A powerful combination of Francis’ image, his words and a Scripture quote (Luke 6:37) about “judging not, and you will not be judged.”

  1. Hello! I really love this shirt as I feel it supports what all of us Christians should think about our brothers and sisters who have same sex attraction.
    Unfortunately, the web sight it was being sold at is currently not working.
    Is there any other way I can get this shirt?
    Thank you!
