Baby Jesus with the Rainbow Halo

Remember the progresive Anglican church in New Zealand that brought you those disgraceful billboards where Joseph was in bed wondering how he could ever measure up to God. Last year’s Christmas billboard showed Mary holding a pregnancy test.

This year, the Revrend Glynn Cardy's latest billboard depicts the baby Jesus with a rainbow halo. It reads, “It’s Christmas. It’s time for Jesus to come out.” Cardy said he’s simply trying to highlight the humanity of Jesus.

In an interview, Cardy said, “The fact is we don’t know what his sexual orientation was.”

“Would it make a difference if he was gay? Would that change the picture for you? Would it mean what we revere about him changes?”

I'm not going to show the pic and I'm not going to link to the church just because I don't want to give it more traffic. I'm sure you'll be seeing the picture out there. This guy is the religion equivalent of the tool who pretended his kid was caught in the weather balloon a few years ago. This kind of anything-for-publicity religion is sad and a symptom of a hollowed out Anglicanism that must resort to Kardashian style attention grabbing. They know that people do not respond to an uncertain trumpet and all churches like this have are uncertain trumpets. But they know that everyone watches a train wreck.

And when some religious leaders no longer know truth, they might just still be willing to hold a train wreck.

"Have you not read, that he who made man from the beginning, made them male and female? And he said: For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they two shall be in one flesh. Therefore now they are not two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder." Mt 19:4-6 Of course, this is an extremely sexually ambiguous statement. It is simply IMPOSSIBLE to know how the man who spoke these words felt about human sexuality. IMPOSSIBLE. Truly...grasping at straws. In the same way, it is simply IMPOSSIBLE to know whether the man who said these words was married: "For there are eunuchs, who were born so from their mothers womb: and there are eunuchs, who were made so by men: and there are eunuchs, who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven. He that can take, let him take it." Mt. 19:12. Yes, indeed. The marital status of Jesus is one of the great mysteries of the Gospels.

Well and truly said.

I'm pretty sure that, once they knew who we think Jesus is, the average Taoist geomancer or Korean shaman could tell you what we pretty much have to assume about his sexuality. "One yin and one yang, this is called The Way." So the question is, why would an alleged Christian claim the answer is non-obvious?

Jesus Christ is a virgin, now and forever. Jesus Christ's mother, Mary, is a virgin, now and forever. All men and women are created virgins in original innocence from the first moment of their existence, the criterion for the objective ordering of human rights. It is the duty of the state to protect original innocence and virginity for the sake of Justice. It is the duty of the human being to protect and defend his virginity and innocence. Any choice the human being makes is his to carry the blessings or the curses. Go choose.
