Pride photo: Maybe Jesus Was Gay

“Just a Thought” by San Diego Shooter Nathan Rupert

“Maybe Jesus Was Gay” declared a festive sign in the 2010 San Diego LGBT Pride parade July 17.

It was carried by the group from Pilgrim United Church of Christ in Carlsbad, CA.

Progressive Bible scholars believe that the gay Jesus is a real likelihood, and artists are envisioning it. Chicago Theological Seminary professor Theodore Jennings explores the Biblical hints about Jesus’ homosexuality in “The Man Jesus Loved.” I gathered some of the best queer Christ images into my book “Art That Dares: Gay Jesus, Woman Christ, and More.”

Special thanks to Eric Isaacson for alerting me to the photo above and taking the photo below. You made this post happen!

Yahoo!!! Lesbian and gay marriage wins the day in California... for awhile anyway :-)

Is this the summer of our content?

Well, an even newer ruling put a stay on same-sex marriage in California... for a while, as you say.

The ups and downs of this remind me of one of my favorite John Lennon songs:

Hard times are over
Hard times are over
Hard times are over, over for awhile
