of the Christ
- Who Would Jesus Do?
It’s all a crapshoot these days to know what anyone’s feelings are
on the subject of sex, let alone sorting out the lusty stirrings of
prominent members of history, like Jesus of Nazareth.
Many have tried. Some come off sounding like Jesus held no Y chromosome and
his asexuality was his stepping stone to heaven.
No saintly stone throwing here.
Others hold firm to the fact that the Nazarene was a man, with
testosterone, urges and more than a little butt-scratching.
If there had been remotes in those days, most certainly Jesus
might have been a remote hog, according to the braver scribes of
today’s visions of history. A preponderance of text must be waded
through in order to finally highlight some very enlightened and
interesting work by some of good writers of our age.
Masculine traits are rare in our image of this man, but it
is precisely this lack of masculinity in the imagery and descriptions of
Jesus that have made him such a fascinating study. The world has both
professional and amateur scholars attempting to sort the Christ’s
personal life from his son-of-god shtick, who are not always successful
at it. More often than not,
some of it comes out in a rather diametrically opposed jumble.
You’ll have to see for yourself, but take it all with a light
heart. If you start to take this stuff too seriously, you’ll find your
thoughts taking uncomfortable u-turns in logic. Don’t say I didn’t
warn you. As I said, it’s
all a crapshoot.
For the purposes of our discussion, religioustolerance.org
is probably one of the best places to start.
Their views on same-sex
marriages will give you an indication of the non-partisan stance of
this website. This one you
can take seriously if you want, but much of what we’re musing over
today is all circumspect and pretty non-cloak and dagger. Take it for
what its worth. Yet another
perspective, but in this case a decently solid perspective, if indeed
there is such a thing. A further
url for the more tedious passages of the bible, debated.
Or does a Bible Sex Quiz tickle your fancy?
Landover Baptist, perhaps one of the funniest irreverent sites on
the web, gives you a quiz with questions like –
“Which of the following may lead to you and all your
descendants being cursed?”
Stripping off all your clothes and lying around naked, for
others to see.
Getting so drunk you pass out naked, for your whole village
Accidentally seeing a person naked and telling others about
the shameless debauchery.
Only at that site will you see articles with titles like
orders Christian men to think only of Jesus while masturbating”
and trust me, it’s worth the read if you aren’t easily offended.
At cannabis.net you can read “Was
Jesus a Stoner?” And
we ALL know how pot affects hormones.
Or try a selection
is from this book project, Jesus
and the Mysteries of Same-Sex Love. From the opening chapter, it
describes with the discovery of a fragment of text from a lost version
of the Gospel of Mark.
Maybe a bit of true lawyer stuff based on the fact that - Even
Jesus knew hookers
A lawyer invokes the name of the Lord to aid his client, but fails to
win his case.
As you can see, the reading is plentiful in all arenas of
Jesus’ lusty pursuits, and some are more fun to read than others.
What it comes down to is – Does it really matter?
There are those who theorize that Jesus produced offspring (Holy
Blood, Holy Grail) and those who say he never had impure thoughts
Who’s to say? We
can only speculate. But we
can have some laughs on the road, eh?
