WHAT IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON?
All I could say after watching this news video from Fox news one year ago…
“OH MY GOD, PEOPLE ARE STUPID.”
Megyn Kelly of Fox news really hit the mark if she was aiming for ignorance.
So, what do you think?
Is Santa supposed to be white? And was Jesus Christ white?
Here’s an interesting article with an excerpt from an expert on Jesus:
“Well, what we know about him is that he was Galilean. As a Galilean, he would have been what is referred to as a Palestinian Jew. He would look the way that the average Palestinian would look today. So that would mean dark features, hairy, probably a longer nose, black hair.”
So, just for fun I googled “Palestinian Jew”
I think these pictures might be upsetting to some.
Could JESUS CHRIST really have looked like this??????
Hmm…. Not sure how poor Jesus H. Christ would have even managed in modern day airport security checks. With a Palestinian Passport and looking like THAT?
Oh, Jesus. Can’t you just hear him, “But, there are no bombs under my robe! I’m the Son of Man!”
“Yeah hush up and take off those sandals, man. And is that water or wine in those bottles? Either way, they are more than 3 ounces. Listen, Mr. Christ, you’re going to have to throw this unidentifiable liquid in THAT trash can right there. Now spread your legs so I can pat you down.”
On the other hand,
If the people of Jesus’ time and place looked like these folks (which they probably did, without the hip modern haircuts, of course…)
Just imagine if Jesus had looked like this:
It would be almost like living in a mainly CAUCASIAN place and having a major world leader turn up looking like this…
They certainly might’ve have HATED him simply for looking different.
I bet they would’ve wondered where he came from and where he was born.
They might even squabble and create uproars in public places demanding to see his birth certificate.
Holy cow, they would’ve freaked out entirely when they found out his folks weren’t even married…
That he had a STEP FATHER and that she claimed to be a virg…
Maybe Megyn Kelly was right after all.
Maybe all those apologies she made were unfounded!
Maybe Jesus was WHITE.
Maybe he was simply hated for looking different.
Just a thought.
‘Cuz stuff like that actually happens.
Today. In our own country.
Hard to believe, isn’t it?
Me personally, I prefer a GREEN Jesus and a GREEN Santa!
Imagine a Santa Claus who swoops around once a year collecting recyclables, saving endangered species, mending the ozone layer while spreading good will and cheer.
He wouldn’t ask, “Have you been naughty or nice?” He would ask, “Have you been naughty or eco-wise?”
Large corporations, big oil, and the Koch Brothers would receive coal in their stockings for sure!
And GREEN Jesus would... Well, Green Jesus would probably do exactly what Jesus already did.
And I think when GREEN Jesus shows back up, he is gonna pretty pissed off about all the messes we have made.
For those in the crowd who seek Biblical references, here ya go:
Job 12: 7-10 & Luke 12:15, 23, 34
Here’s the bottom line:
Has anyone out there ever laid eyes on Santa or Jesus?
Right. Didn’t think so.
So, frankly how does anyone know what either of them REALLY look like?
The point of these two famous dudes is what they represent.
Both Jesus and Santa are about peace, good will, and the spreading of light and truth.
Jesus and Santa are about PEOPLE GETTING ALONG and respecting one another.
We could all use a little more of that!
