This is a serious question.

We do, in English it's Joshua.

Actually I don't. I live in Canada.

But why can't white men be named "Jesus"?

Their Moms don't like them enough! Hence, the compensation with white supremacy.

You don't know many Hispanic people, do you?

The name Jesus in Spanish doesn't translate to Jesus the Messiah as it does in English. When Hispanics name their child Jesus, there's no connection to the Jesus of the bible. I figure some English-speaking parent will probably eventually name her child Jesus in order to make a statement and get a rise from people.

I'm not sure that's correct.

I don't know. I was told that by a Mexican-American co-worker.

There's no rule saying white people can't, but that's be a hell of a name to live up to if you lived in the Bible belt.

I'm not saying you're wrong. I have just heard the opposite in much the same circumstances as you (a latino acquaintance). Google isn't helping.

Anybody know?

I went to school with a Jesus. He thought he was named after Jesus Christ. Catholic answers .com agrees with with him. http://www.askacatholic.com/_WebPostings...tTaboo.cfm

Well that's bullshit right off. It'd be like saying that Séan isn't the Irish for John, or Johan the Swedish equivalent.

And if acting like Jesus has anything to do with not being a douche... then more atheists live up to the name than Christian do Tongue
