Nice Essay About Jesus, Art, and Cesare Borgia!

Nice Essay About Jesus, Art, and Cesare Borgia!
Leave it to the xtian shitwits to indulge in apologetics for their boy, though.

Quote:How did Jesus get to be so hot? The fascinating history of depictions of the savior

Quote:In an effort to distance themselves from the image of a swarthy Middle Eastern Jesus some conservative Christians have even laid out the following (transparently self-serving) argument: Since God impregnated Mary, he must have“fashioned the necessary genes and chromosomes that could be the vehicle of Christ’s person in uniting with those in the body of the virgin.” This means Jesus had some unknown kind of DNA that came straight from God, and so he could have had any shape of face, eye color, skin tone, build or height. Ergo, there’s no reason to assume that he looked like a typical Palestinian Jew.

Why not, though?

If everything else can be explained by Jesus poofs, why not special god jizz that made Jesus look like a medieval hippie? What better way to make Jesus become a contemporary cultural phenomenon and a leader of the Hebrews than to make him look like a fucking Roman.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

So... now they're saying god has DNA?

Do these people ever have any internally consistent thoughts, like, at all?

Only for the 42 seconds while they solve their current conundrum. Then they never think about it again.

Why was Jesus white? Obvy because God had special DNA. Problem solved. Box checked, disaster averted.

Two days later they'll be arguing about how no one can know the features of god and that you're interpreting the Bible wrong.

Catering to their core audience, I assume. White racist American males with low education.
