Jesus has been depicted in art as triumphant, gentle or suffering. Now, in a controversial new sculpture in downtown Toronto, he is shown as homeless - an outcast sleeping on a bench.

Prosperity Doctrine Jesus does not sleep on park benches.

If he was depicted as a 30 year old man who still lived with his mom, would Farkers embrace him as a brother?

Only his beard was primarily located on his neck and he turned water into Mountain Dew.

Did he die to save us from bad DMs?


he took one game, cracked the DRM and transferred it to millions.

I thought ben franklin was white. But seems he is some type of copper color. Well back to study up in the whitewash history book I guess.

Of course not. Christians think they're rich because Jesus was rich.

Jesus is too perfect to ever be destitute.

MarkEC: neongoats: Liberal atheist organizations? I'm not sure that actually exists, but keep farking your chicken, out of touch pseudochristian.

How nice of you to assume I'm something I'm not. This thread is bashing Christians over their treatment of the homeless while totally ignoring that the Christian churches in this country do more for the homeless than the government and all you liberal atheists combined.


This thread isn't even about atheists, or wasn't until you tried to threadjack it in that direction like a good troll.

But like the hurping derping mouth breather you have proved yourself to be, you completely missed the point, of the sculpture, the article, and the discussion in the thread.

Congrats, you're a bad troll, a bad reader, and at this point, we're just going to go ahead and presume bad person to boot. Good day sir.

/I said good day sir.

quatchi: Wasn't there some sort of heresy that was purged by the Inquisition many years ago regarding whether Jesus owned the ass he rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday?


Yes. Pope Joe vs. The Cincinati Bengals. Then ten points were awarded to Griffindore.

Jesus didn't drive the moneylenders out of the Temple, you see; it was those dirty Occupy hippies and Jesus was really just helping the moneylenders move their things

"It was very upsetting because the rectors liked it, but when it got to the administration, people thought it might be too controversial or vague," he says. He was told "it was not an appropriate image."

Well, it does run the risk of inadvertently teaching someone the values of humility, kindness, compassion and/or generosity.

He was a carpenter for 30 years, then he went wandering around as a bum preaching to people, and he claimed God spoke to him. That seems fairly well established, and it also perfectly describes every third schizophrenic (other than the carpenter part).

Are you speaking in character, or do you literally punch homeless people in the face?

The page for "liberal" had a picture of Hitler at the top for years. Someone decided that cost them credibility. So they replaced it with a picture of John Wayne Gacy--and moved the Hitler picture to the bottom.

I was saddened to see they got rid of the Gacy & Hitler pictures--until I realized they had replaced them with a picture of history's greatest monster.

What do biblical scholars know about Christ anyways?

'I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' 37Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?' 40And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'

RaoulDeWondernewt:
From the Man Himself:
Jesus told him, "Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head."


And this.

Gethsemane. It's where you go to sweat buckets of blood and anguish over the sacrifices you make due to your faith.

Or you can go to Sunday School.

Not all embrace this interpretation, as Bryan Stallings and his wife Amy discovered. They run a mission in Branson, Mo., called Jesus Was Homeless.... They've been criticized for the mission's name.
"People who have issue with it are usually the staunch religious people," says Stallings, "especially those who follow prosperity teaching and doctrine that says if you are homeless or poor you don't have enough faith."

Shadi: 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
