Conservatives Gonna Be P*SSED! We Now Have A Gay ‘Passion Of The Christ’

A gay passion of the Christ? Blasphemous or beautiful? You decide.

A controversial series of paintings in which Jesus Christ is depicted as a gay man has caused controversy online. While many find these paintings blasphemous, some find them beautiful.

New York artist Doug Blanchard has created a series of 24 paintings that revolve around the crucifixion of a gay Jesus.?The paintings are now available in Blanchard’s book The Passion Of Christ: A Gay Vision. A book trailer was also made for those interested in purchasing the book. The book trailer states:

A queer Passion is important now because Christianity is being used to justify hate and discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.

Below are some of the paintings:

Gay Jesus and his followers promote equality, justice, and freedom.
Gay Jesus is beaten and scolded before the priests. These priests were like today’s church officials who constantly scold and condemn gay people.
Gay Jesus stands before the people who condemn him to Hell and demand him to die. This resembles the “God Hates Fags!” rhetoric used today.
Gay Jesus is mocked and stripped of his clothes before the soldiers. Today, bullying and violence against gay people exist all around the world.
Gay Jesus is beaten and punished. Today, hate crimes against LGBT people are common.
Gay Jesus attends his execution. Just as Jesus had his own cross to bear, so do LGBT people. LGBT people are constantly weighed down by the self-hatred and low self-esteem inflicted upon them due to those who constantly condemn them.
Gay Jesus finds happiness and love upon his death.

Personally, I think Jesus Christ can mean anything to anyone. Jesus promoted love. Any crucifixion or violence against another person should not be tolerated. According to the Bible. Jesus promoted love, kindness, friendship, compassion, understanding, and acceptance. I think it’s safe to say that LGBT people definitely need more of this in their lives.

The news is constantly filled with stories about gay people being mistreated in the name of God. A “Christ-like” doctor refused to treat a same-sex couple’s baby. Indiana recently passed an anti-gay law making it legal for businesses to refuse to serve gay people. Georgia has a similar bill on the way. False prophets such as Pat Robertson constantly abuse their power and advise people to treat gay people poorly. This blatant mistreatment of gay people must stop.

If you believe the Bible, then you believe that Jesus came to help those who were mistreated. Jesus Christ surrounded himself with those who were seen as “unworthy” in society. Jesus Christ promoted love and showed love to everyone. I think these paintings are beautiful. They serve as a reminder that people are people and love is love. The paintings also serve as a reminder that LGBT people constantly face similar struggles that Jesus Christ faced – persecution, violence, and hatred. This type of treatment must stop.
