Was Jesus Christ gay?
Apparently the Right Rev. James Dodson thinks so. At least, if you take seriously Rev. Dodson's test for homosexuality in children.
I find it somewhat hilarious that someone who hates gays has a gay Messiah...

That is amusing indeed.

It's amusing but not surprising.
I've always felt that Jesus Christ -- you know, the one who preached "turn the other cheek," "don't pass judgement on others lest you be judged," and "it's easier for a camel to pass through a needle eye than for a rich man..." -- would have been derided as a "faggot" by the typical "Christian" Right Dominionist.

If Jesus returned today, they'd slap him in a straghtjacket and commit him in Bellevue.

If Jesus returned today, they'd bash him as a dirty hippie commie lib'rul. No doubt about it. I mean, the guy was Jewish, had long hair, and believed in helping the poor. He would have been a prime target for the right-wing hate machine.

On another note, we know how you like to show penguin porn, but we wondered if you enjoyed Squirrel porn, too? We ran across this, yesterday, and immediately thought of you:)

What amuses me is that the homosexuality test focuses on preventing males becoming homosexual, but there is no apparent concern about women becoming homosexual. Everybody loves a lesbian, as long as they aren't too butch.

(by Woody Guthrie)
Jesus Christ was a man who traveled through the land
A hard-working man and brave
He said to the rich, "Give your money to the poor,"
But they laid Jesus Christ in His grave
Jesus was a man, a carpenter by hand
His followers true and brave
One dirty little coward called Judas Iscariot
Has laid Jesus Christ in His Grave
He went to the preacher, He went to the sheriff
He told them all the same
"Sell all of your jewelry and give it to the poor,"
And they laid Jesus Christ in His grave.
When Jesus come to town, all the working folks around
Believed what he did say
But the bankers and the preachers, they nailed Him on the cross,
And they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.
And the people held their breath when they heard about his death
Everybody wondered why
It was the big landlord and the soldiers that they hired
To nail Jesus Christ in the sky
This song was written in New York City
Of rich man, preacher, and slave
If Jesus was to preach what He preached in Galilee,
They would lay poor Jesus in His grave.

is not really a comment rather it is a question. WHAT IS THE NAME OF THE CARPENTAR THAT NAILED JESUS CHRIST?
