Eww Sexy Jesus
Is anyone else slightly queasy at the modern day depictions of Jesus? The half dressed, well muscled white guy with big "I'm totally innocent" eyes. I know he's supposed to be appealing, but it makes my skin crawl. Thank goodness I don't have to look at it anymore.

Ah, the whitewashing of history. I wonder if folks would still worship him if he looked the way he was supposed too.

RE: Eww Sexy Jesus
Something about crucifixes and paintings of the crucifixion always made me feel uneasy. I could never quite put my finger on it before, but that could be it.

RE: Eww Sexy Jesus
I think the real creepy part is listening to Christians talk about how they are the bride of Christ, are going to be married to him when he comes back for them, and get to speed the rest of their afterlives with him. They talk about it like they are going to be cuddled up in his arms, and actually have an actual relationship with him.

But yes, the image of Jesus this hot white guy is creepy, and very Eurocentric too.
