Hell, I'd fark Jesus.

The news isn't that Don Imus is a jackass. The news is that Don Imus is still relevant to people.

Who these people are I have no idea?

What a gorgeous race....see which the GOP will accept first; black Jesus or gay Jesus.

Although I'm not a fan or listener of Imus, he IS correct that there were a ton of gospels that the "Church" decided they didn't want to print.

I don't know what is in all of them (there are tons of shows on the History channel about this sort of thing) but I certainly wouldn't doubt something like that was in one of them!

/protip:  don't bring up the 'lost' gospels if you go to Catholic School.  They don't like it when you bring it up.

Uncle Tractor: Translations of the gospel can be found here.


None of this surprises me since the God of the old testament acted like a petulant child as well.

I'm sure they're all about as true and believable as the ones the church did choose to print.

The Gospel of Thomas is far more interesting.

There was supposedly one such book, written for teh wimminz - The Book of...Judith? Lillith? - that had oral sex as a religious rite. Just, you know, before you dismiss these other works as "the same ol' baldercrap". The early church was just as interested in making sure their version of god (sexless and joyless) was the only official version.

// but they left the Solomon's Softcore Song alone

It requires admiting that they tried to destroy all copies of records of Jesus's time in earth (they were lost because the church went out and destroyed anything they could find that was not in their approved list) AND that the church has been actively holding people back to mantain power. Only a few in copies survived, almost entirely ones that were hidden.

The books included in the bible were basically the intro texts, The lost gospels include the more advanced ones, which would have helped people develop spiritually and made them less reliant on the church...

Jesus can't be homosexual, he built my hot rod!
 
2013-04-09 09:49:46 AM  
Jesus was as queer as a 3 shekel bill
 
2013-04-09 10:39:24 AM  
If I ever find Jesus I'm kicking his ass.

considering that there's more scientific evidence for black Jesus, i'm gonna go ahead and guess gay Jesus.

The Heretical Gospel of Mark is a nice read.  If you give it the wildest interpretation, Jesus was gay and he wasn't that Christian, but more of a mystic in a secret religious group.  Nothing like teaching a youthful male dressed only in a linen cloth the "mystery of the Kingdom of God" all alone, late at night.

Which one? The Gnostic one, or the "Lost years bad jesus fanfiction" one?
 
2013-04-09 12:59:06 PM  
Anything else, Robin?

I've read a lot of gnostic literature; the Gospel of Thomas, most of the Nag Hammadi texts, and so on. Most of them are even more obviously full of shiat than the orthodox Bible, with a large dose of totally unwarranted snobbishness to boot, and I'm guessing the Gospel of Judas is no different. Having said that, a statement like this is so trolltastic that I'm willing to forgive him the "nappy-headed hoes" remark. Not that it matters, since I'm under the age of 80 and therefore never listen to the radio, but still.
 
2013-04-09 02:25:41 PM  
So what?
 
2013-04-09 04:05:23 PM  
Look, Jesus couldn't have been gay and porking Mary Magdalene.

Bi, maybe.

I'll bet none of the "church sanctioned" gospels had him as a single male 33 year old who always hung out with 12 other men all the time.

The movie version was pretty strange, Judas is the only black guy and he gets chased around by a jet fighter after betraying JC.

And the lead actor portrays herp-a-derp Jesus.

I think the important question is was he a pitcher or a catcher?
 
2013-04-09 10:06:04 PM  
hey, remember when people say the council of nicea was really a state-run cooption of christianity?

Yeah... about that .... it was about all this kind of stuff.
