I like how Jesus has a tattoo despite being a Jew and having Leviticus 19:28 saying:


"'Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.

As I clicked the thread's link, I was holding my breath hoping that the world would make sense today, at last just a little bit and that Buddy Jesus would be the very Boobies....


And behold, it's a miracle!

The only thing thing that would have make it better would have been a quote:

"Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now we all know how the majority and the media in this country view the Catholic church. They think of us as a passe, archaic institution. People find the Bible obtuse... even hokey. Now in an effort to disprove all that the church has appointed this year as a time of renewal... both of faith and of style. For example, the crucifix. While it has been a time honored symbol of our faith, Holy Mother Church has decided to retire this highly recognizable, yet wholly depressing image of our Lord crucified. Christ didn't come to Earth to give us the willies... He came to help us out. He was a booster. And it is with that take on our Lord in mind that we've come up with a new, more inspiring sigil. So it is with great pleasure that I present you with the first of many revamps the "Catholicism WOW. " campaign will unveil over the next year. I give you... The Buddy Christ. Now that's not the sanctioned term we're using for the symbol, just something we've been kicking around the office, but look at it. Doesn't it... pop? Buddy Christ...  "

2013-02-01 09:46:21 AM
Yeah, this whole "liberal Jesus" thing is nothing more than the latest reequilibration with society. Religious folk love to pretend that God is a static tower of virtue that rings true throughout the ages, but the lines are always being redrawn. The church fights a never ending social war, lagging behind the progressives of the time, balancing their desire to maintain regressive status quo with the need to remain relevant. The church has rarely been at the vanguard of any positive social movement. They like to lay claim to having been active abolitionists now that slavery is 150 years removed, but other than the Quakers, most sects were pretty indifferent, including the Catholics and Episcopalians.

Yeah but to their credit, they're trying to promote more of the "peace, love, and tolerance" Jesus taught rather than the damnation, fire, and brimstone that hardline Christians promote, which is exactly what makes people ridicule Christians. I'm in favor of the new movement.

I think that "white" could be defined as all of those people that migrated into what is now Europe and northern Asia (Russia), and have pretty much not intermingled with other races ever since.  Considering that all of those people are the ones that came up with the classical depiction of Jesus, it's no wonder he looks like them.

Funny thing is both genealogies of Jesus in the Gospels, both the one in Matthew and the one in Luke, end with Joseph as if he was Jesus' dad. However how they get there is completely different and why they're different as well as how they were sourced is a subject of much discussion.

i've read some old norse texts that really confuse the two.  about the time that christianity popped up in the north, there are some manuscripts where odin myth popped up in the telling of jesus.  jesus' time after the crucifixion was in the lowest world pinned to the tree in ringmail fighting all sorts of evil.  or it was odin, the two were blurred in the texts that i remember.  probably no small degree of conversion propaganda or theological inclusionism

"We've changed all the pictures of white Jesus in the church to brown Jesus. It's Sunday morning service time. Let's see if anyone notices."

I'm sure it would go over real well on most of Real America.

I actually have this picture in my ocean-themed guest bathroom. I found it at Goodwill and was very impressed by Jesus' beautiful teeth.

Diogenes: God created everything in 6 days and the Earth is only a couple of thousand years old.  But we can remake Jesus at our whim like he was a Barbie doll.

StrangeQ: Well that was a thoroughly boring and uninteresting wall of text.  Anyone have a synopsis for someone who might care, but just not enough to read it all?


Some Christians are trying to reinvent Jesus to be hipper and more interesting. Which pretty much has been happening since the word "hip" came into common usage but this time it's on Fark.

There would be no problem with that in New Orleans. AB Rummel, back in the day, desegregated the Archdiocese and excommunicated people who had a problem with that and even closed a church that didn't want to dsegregate. Mom's (Catholic) high school did get a bomb threat when it was desegregated.

Oh brother.

To quote my own post:   Diogenes:kid_icarus: It's about damn time. That whole "robe & sash" look is so 2000 years ago. And that hair!...well, that's kinda came back in, actually.

Jesus can totally pull off "trucker chic."

Every time I see that picture I find myself getting side tracked by the abalone shell.  Why an abalone shell?


Jews are not suposed to eat shell fish?

What side tracks me about that pic is the one hand print on the door, what is that all about?  Well that and the faux finish in the wall.  NY socialites would pay a fortune for that paint job.

Why is there a skull on the table? shiat. I know some hardcore motherf*ckers. People who may very well sit in their shiathole apartments with peeling paint and cigarettes and whiskey and a gun on the table. I don't think I know anyone who keeps a human skull as a table piece.


Not to mention that the junkie looks like he works out on a regular basis,probably avoids unhealthy food too.

They're going to finally admit that Jesus was a bad motherfarker?  A man that was shack up with a whore and beat the hell out of the bankers?  A man so wild that he threw a party that is still being talked about some 2,000 years later.  They killed him for disturbing the peace.  Farking cops were pigs back then too.

Weirdly, the most "accurate" depiction of Jesus I've seen was in a pornographic comic called "Girl: Second Coming", by Kevin Taylor, where he depicts Jesus as a middle-eastern Jew. Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be any pics available that I can link to.

Is that Michael Jackson? So his soul remained black, even though he turned white? I guess that actually makes sense. Although, why has Jebus stolen his glove?

It looks like Michael had Prince's soul and when he died Jesus snatched Prince's soul with the magic glove Michael used to steal it in the first place.

RexTalionis: I like how Jesus has a tattoo despite being a Jew and having Leviticus 19:28 saying:


I like the way he's depicted as a handsome Germanic man. None of that Semite nonsense for this Jesus, thank you.

I think he looks more like Thor than Jesus.

Oh, wait.  They've been doing that for centuries.


It is funny.  I'm white and any pictures I have of Jesus are white.  My wife is black and any pictures of Jesus she has are black.  Yet, we're both wrong.  He's from Bethlehem, so he's Middle Eastern.


Born in Bethlehem, but from Nazareth.

That is a brilliant and incisive observation.  So Jesus IS white.  And black.  And middle eastern, Asian, Inuit, Kentucky inbred, Australian aborigine, South Amazon, and whatever else you need Him to be.  Can't beat magic DNA.
