‘Rotund Christ’

Christ-lovers on our nine:

“Jack Black should remember from his days at Hebrew School that
homosexual acts aren’t funny and are roundly condemned in the Bible,”
said Dr. Gary Cass, of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission.
“Appearing as a sarcastic, rotund Christ, Black distorts the Bible and
condones shameful, homosexual acts. Associating Christ with perverse
activity is an affront to all people of faith, especially Christians.
Apparently Black and company find it hilarious to falsely accuse
Christians while they intentionally distort the Bible. Black ought to
apologize.”

  1. Someone needs to explain to me why shellfish ever made the top ten list of stuff that sends me to hell.
    Also, A, if you’re title is a military referent, I’d imagine you’d be saying “Christ lovers on our six” as that would be “on our ass” which would be funnier still in this situation. (Think your watch; six is backatcha) If they’re on our nine, they’d be our wing man.
    Tx to Virgo for posting the original. Haven’t laughed this hard in a while.

  2. You know, the funny thing is that I haven’t seen one place in the New Testament where Jesus said one word about homosexuality, pro or con. I remember lots of times where Jesus talked about hypocrisy, especially the hypocrisy of people who claimed to be speaking for God. And He wasn’t really thrilled with it, IIRC. Perhaps these guys should reread the Bible, paying closer attention to what Jesus is reported to have said and done, rather than their own personal glosses on what theythink He should have said and done.

    No, but Ido remember something in the NT about Jesus creating a new covenant with Christians, which would ostensibly wipe out the requirements for Christians to be bound by the laws set down in Leviticus and other places. Also, I’d like to see that interpretation justified by someone who can also adequately explain to me just what the supposed prohibition against homosexuality from Leviticus meant in the context in which it was originally written (hint: probably not prohibiting anything we’d think of as “gay sex,” given the cultural attitudes of the Israelites about women and “Hellenists”)…
    Fun fact: Did you know that “Hellenist” is still used as an insult in Modern Hebrew? 🙂

  4. The fundy jackasses are trying to stir up the dust around this because it flags them on their hypocrisy so in their wee-Sven Hoek minds rattling around all loose in their noggin, if they make a stink about the fact that someone of ‘size’ portrayed jeebus it’s a bad thing. Not the fact that he HAD AN EFFING POINT about the ‘picking & choosing’…!

    (plus, doncha just LOVE that their heads are asplodin’ over his ‘hebrew’ schooling – um, wasn’t Jesus a Jew?)

  5. I didn’t realize until today that Allison Janney AND Kathy Najimy were Wife #1 and Wife #2 of John C. Reilly. (read it online somewhere)

  6. And the place in Revelation which says that homosexuals won’t enter the Kingdom of Heaven also lists adulterers in the same list.
    Why don’t the repubs come out against adultery?

  7. Oh, and about shellfish – some say that they spoil easy and should be avoided. But also note that dietary laws were a big part of identity for many religions of the day.
    Pythagoras, as I remember, eschewed eating beans.
