White (Chocolate) Jesus, perhaps? oh, @MegynKelly… why?

Jesus was a white man too. He was a historical figure, that’s a verifiable fact – as is Santa. How do you just revise it in the middle of the legacy of the story, and just change Santa from white to black?

via Fox News Santa Is White – Business Insider.

So, Santa was a Turkish area Bishop, most likely a Greek guy. Not sure that would classify as white.

But Jesus?

Dude, Jesus was a Jew of Palestinian descent. Most then likely, darker than the average Fox News pundit.

But my goodness… this is nuts.

  1. And, if these nuts are to be believed, God’s a white male too! He’s also the Father of Capitalism and the Almighty watches Fox News. Never mind that the latter is for amusement (Psalm 2:4 and Proverbs 1:26).

    1. Looking at your verses. Made me think, “I am a jealous God”, “I hardened pharaoh’s heart”, “surely you will die”, “kill all the women and children, but save the young virgins for yourself”, etc.. No wonder Gnosticism appealed to some. The more I see of Fox News representing the so-called Christian view (like FRC Tony Perkins), the more I like the “old, old, time religion”, gnosticism.

  2. We would probably be suspicious if Jesus would get on an airplane today. He would definitely look like a terrorist….middle eastern olive skinned , heavy dark beard. What people fail to realize is that our visual images of Jesus stem from European art work from the middle ages not from reality.

    1. Forget getting through airport security. Just let the homeless unemployed hippie-type and his swarthy picaros walk into an upscale church and take somebody’s usual pew on a Christmas or Easter Sunday!!!

  3. She just meant that Jesus isn’t black. The context was talking about someone wanting to see a black Santa. So, she had to immediately go to Jesus as if to say, what next, a black Jesus? It wasn’t racist, just dumb.

  4. Reza Aslan, author of Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth noted recently, “Megyn Kelly is right; her Christ is white.” Aslan goes on to point out that, on the other hand, the historical Jesus was a Palestinian Jew. The author also concurs with the practical observation that, for the most part, Christ reflects the culture of the believer.
