EvilEgg: His dad was white so there is at least even odds Jesus is white.
syrynxx: I'd like to hear Ted Nugent's thoughts on this subject.

mrshowrules: Aslan's left nut is smarter than the entire staff at Fox News combined.

Bennie Crabtree: Th paragraph near the end where he says Kelly is right because Jesus is perceived the way the believer "perceives humanity" is gold. He is saying, right there, that Kelly is racist. She perceives humanity as white. Bu that is where I disagree with him. I think he has mistaken the incarnation of "humanity" with the incarnation of "mercy" for one's own, local problems.But the racism he pins her with in that paragraph is precious.
RussianPooper: Oh yeah, then why is his middle name "H."?
catmandu: There is no such thing as a white race. There is Negroid (sub-Saharan Africa); Mongoloid (east Asia, Russia west of the Urals, indigenous people of North and South America); Australoid (Australia and parts of Melanesia), and Caucasoid (North Africa, Middle East, Europe, Indian subcontinent, western Russia).Jesus was Caucasian but he definitely wasn't white.
smellysocksnshoes: What if Jesus were a ginger? An anth class I took way back when stated red hair was common in the mid east centuries ago. Still found in Afghanistan and parts of Asia/caucuses.
paidhima: RussianPooper: cretinbob: Christ is a title, not a nameOh yeah, then why is his middle name "H."?Hallowed. You know, "Hallowed be thy name."

worlddan: "and they're different people," Aslan said. "In other words, the Christ can be whatever you want him to be."I regret reading the article now. This is one partially true statement being responded to by another partially true statement. Jesus is the name given at birth. Christ literally means "the anointed one" which is to say the one recognized by the people as the Messiah. So rather than saying "Jesus of Nazareth, who is the Christ" we shorten it to "Jesus Christ".But this does not mean that Christ can be whoever one wants him to be. That is the wrong logical leap. While it is true that the Christ can be seen as the "social dimension" as opposed to Jesus the "personal dimension" or "historical dimension" the concept of "the Christ" or "the Messiah" had a specific meaning in Palestine at that time. The phrase "the Christ" is not a symbolic empty vessel that one can project whatever current cultural constructs one wants on to. This is not to say that people do in fact engage in such projection; it is to say that it is both historically inaccurate and theologically unsound to do so. Asian should not be encouraging this misguided behavior.
cretinbob: Christ is a title, not a name
Amish Tech Support: Jesus was an extraterrestrial.
DirkValentine: It's not enough to just go to Republican Church on Sundays, if you don't truly believe the Republican Religion in your heart of hearts, the derp won't flow through you, it will destroy you.I don't know, man. I honestly don't pay any attention to Fox outside of links about it but what I have seen tells me there are some serious sociopathic grifters that are there specifically b/c they have critical thinking skills and the ability to disown their soul and use them for the forces of evil.
impaler: DirkValentine: She's supposed to clarify her statements on her show tonight.yes, that's right. I can't WAIT to hear this.I'm sure there's going to be a lot of crying about how liberals are being mean, using their facts and historical data to bully her.
DirkValentine: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: DirkValentine: The big question here isn't what color this Christ fellow is :Its why in the fark did Megyn say that?!?!?I mean, wtf?She's supposed to clarify her statements on her show tonight.yes, that's right. I can't WAIT to hear this.

cretinbob: Also in reference to your post, there is the theory that Jesus went east and turned to Buddhism before going home and spreading it.

gilgigamesh: That is actually a pretty sober and wise take on this whole nontroversy.And since the point is outrage for outrage's sake, I expect the reaction to it will be further outrage.
vernonFL: Peter von Nostrand: Has John Stossel weighed in yet? I keep my options open until I hear his witty and brilliant take on the day's latest poutrageJesus didn't have a 70s porn 'stache, but Christ did.
