First, I think I should get brownie points for drawing Correctly Ethnic Jesus. Correctly Ethnic Jesus is like the Wheres Waldo of religious depictions.
Hey! Remember that part in the Bible where Jesus threw a rock at a prostitute?
When a seedy lawyer invited Jesus to his house for dinner, and Jesus was like No way! I only interact with people that openly flaunt their piousness
like those priests playing bingo in the temple!
Or who could forget what Jesus said to the spectators when He was up on the cross Ow! You jerks, Im gonna wait behind the pearly gates and punch you in the face!
dont remember those passages? Oh, thats right, because the exact opposite happened in those experiences. Look, I wont pretend that Ive read more than three books of the Bible. But from the years of church, lectures, and Christian school, I am flabbergasted at how people interpret Jesus words. Jesus was a humanitarian in every sense: He showed compassion and interacted with the people shunned by society and religious sects, and He asked His Father to forgive those that cheered His crucifixion.
So how in the world does a group like the God Hates Fags pop up? Now, now, normally I dont nitpick the faiths, because a smart person once stated that all religions are equally wrong and equally right. But the group highlighted are the people who protest funerals of gay people and fallen US troops and praise god (lowercased since I dont believe theyre referring to the name of my God) that they died. Thats crazy enough
but they also practice the Calvinistic belief that youre already destined for either Heaven or Hell by the time youre born.
So, then why go out of your way to harass people and tell us were sinful and need to repent if were already doomed?
Ah well, anyway I think Ben Franklin said in a polite society you do not discuss politics or religion. The only picture Ive ever done that has caused a flame war was Ask Jesus [link]
, where I think a couple of times I was told (very seriously) that I was destined for Hell.
There is no humor in Heaven, buddy!
I absolutely encourage people to disagree with me, my site is a democracy (with me as the benevolent dictator). I enjoy seeing different points of view, bantering with each other a few times, and leaving on good terms because we understand the concept that we are individuals with individualistic mindsets. Still, its hard to be objective when faced with:
Dude your picture is stupid and Jesus will judge you and you will go to Hell! YOU WILL!!!
I totally agree that Jesus will judge my merits, but thats kinda harsh to think Im going to Hell for this.
I love Jesus so much I even wear my WWJD bracelet in the shower so I know hell send you to Hell!
I thought only God could make judgment calls, your claim sounds like youre speaking on BEHALF of Jesus.
Jesus works through me so I am a vessel so I know you will go to HELL!!!
And round it goes until I realize weve established three different contradictions. Ive seen plenty of art I dont like, but remember that those are peoples established galleries, and anything you post on TEH INTERNETZ will stay there FOREVER. So the moral is: never post nude photos on the net! No wait
its that you can openly disagree with my statements, but Id appreciate intelligent criticism. The Bible is thousands of years old, surely it deserves better rebuttals than NUH-UH UR A TARD
If I had anything to do over, itd be to change Christians to His followers, because its not just Christian fundies that are the antagonist
though it is the most hypocritical given our namesake. Most Christians are sensible, and the Christians you see screaming on the news are just pimple pockets of about a few dozen families. I appreciate your thoughts on my thoughts. Heck, even the hate mail sparked some great comments from some super cool artists, so common and torch me!
