MAN CLAIMS PAINTINGS OF “WHITE CHRIST” VIOLATE HIS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS
We typically eschew using the term “full retard” because it is indeed offensive to individuals with developmental disabilities. But as long as the forces of political correctness are on the march in America, we will continue to use the term.
The latest example of the insanity? A lawsuit filed against New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art over four masterpieces depicting Jesus Christ as a white man with blond hair.
The lawsuit was filed in the Manhattan Supreme Court by Justin Renel Joseph – who claimed the inclusion of the four “Aryan” and “racist” depictions of Jesus constituted “offensive aesthetic whitewashing” and an “extreme case of discrimination” causing him “personal stress.”
“I shouldn’t have to go into the Metropolitan Museum and see paintings for white people,” Joseph told Artnet News. “It doesn’t make me feel good. I have a little daughter. I don’t want her to see this.”
Joseph claims the presentation of the paintings violate his First Amendment rights as well as Titles II and VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
The works in question are Perugino’s The Resurrection (above, ca. 1502), Sebastiano Ricci’s Holy Family Of Angels (c. 1700), Tintoretto’s The Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes (ca. 1545–50) and Francesco Granacci’s The Crucifixion (c. 1510).
Obviously none of the artists were available for comment …
It’s no secret Jesus – being born of a Hebrew woman who hailed from the town of Nazareth (in present-day Israel) – was not a pale white man with blond hair. It’s 99.9 percent likely he had olive (or light brown) skin and dark brown hair.
Still, though … this suit is ridiculous. And further evidence of our nation’s descent into madness.
Museums shouldn’t be complicated: They should, however, be privately funded and thus permitted to show whatever they want.
Full Retard isn’t a strong enough description of this idiocy.
MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry had a mini head-explosion over Darth Vader, a “totally black guy,” who then goes over to the “good side,” takes off his mask, and is…white!
But, did it trouble her that the storm troopers, also evil guys, are all white?
And, should we really take anything seriously from a woman who once wore tampon earrings to protest the Texas abortion bill?
Harris-Perry took issue with a black actor voicing the iconic evil character rather than rejoicing at James Earl Jones getting such a high-profile career opportunity….
She goes on to complain:
….But as soon as he claims his son and goes over to the good, he takes off his mask and he is white. Yes, I have many, many feelings about that, but I will try to put them over here.
As NewsBusters astutely points out, would have it made more sense for an obviously white character, Luke, to have his father unmasked as black?
Welcome to LIBTARDVILLE,USA.
Wasting away again in Libtardville, looking for my lost health care plan, some people say that Obama is to blame but we know it’s the dumb voters fault.
It has been a long time since I saw the movie but I believe they showed that the storm troopers are all clones from one guy. As I remember it this guy had olive skin.
Everyone knows Jesus was a sand nigger. What’s the big deal?
Even in S. America they depicted Jesus as a Latino. They even gave him sunglasses sometimes.
People are too sensitive.
Not much different from the Christer fucktards who are always trying to ban Harry Potter books.
Or Obama’s Muslim buddies who cut the heads off of Christians for being Christians.
Thank goodness you aren’t an actual Christian, that’s why you’re still commenting here right loser?
Sure thing – “Flip from Ohio”
Your absurd rationalization for using an offensive term is but a transparent refusal to acknowledge your limited vocabulary. (BTW, “eschew” is nearly as hackneyed as “rebuke.”)
I don’t know why Fits just doesn’t use LIBERAL instead of FULL RETARD?
Because Dr. Ben Carson has a portrait of himself being blessed by Black Jesus.
Because he’s a better journalist?
You just can’t fix stupid.
If Rose was talking, he might note he has long since taken responsibility for his actions. He might point out he has served many years of his sentence, and that he was welcomed by the Fox network to be a part of its team of analysts at the World Series without anyone in baseball saying a word.
Or he might just note the blatant hypocrisy of those who run the sport today.
They are the same people who embrace daily fantasy play by declaring it’s not gambling, which is almost as laughable as was Rose’s longstanding denial he bet on baseball. Then again, Major League Baseball has a financial stake in daily fantasy, which is every bit as much a threat to the moral fabric of the game as the bets Rose made on the Reds.
He might also wonder why the kings of the steroid era, who nearly destroyed the game with their jacked-up numbers, are still welcomed with open arms. That includes Barry Bonds, who begins employment in a few months in Florida as a hitting coach for the Marlins with baseball’s blessing.

Banning Rose is :
FULL RETARD PC NONSENSE
As if I care.
Like I said: you just can’t fix stupid.
Now, go off on one of your tangents, it is fully expected.
No tangent from me.I just translate stupidity and you keep me busy however you aren’t the only liberal that does.
You just can’t fix stupid.
Hey, it’s “Flip from Ohio”
How can they call it,’The World Series’ when no other countries play?
Hopefully a Rule 11 motion will be promptly served upon his attorney
He has no attorney. He’s acting pro se. (“He who represents himself has a fool for a client.” – Abraham Lincoln)
“extreme case of discrimination” causing him “personal stress.”
Remember when we were kids, the expression to someone who was overreacting, “Don’t make a Federal case of it.”
These days, making a Federal case of it is a common practice.
Let’s see, man sues one of the secular world’s most “sacred” institutions over the racial insensitivity of a depiction of the son of God that, very likely, the institution, most of its patrons, the artist, and the litigant don’t even believe in. Brovo. Another step down the slippery slope of cultural absurdity.
In a situation such as this, has it ever occurred to anyone that ONE person voicing their displeasure over viewing this art could queer the situation for thousands who want to come and view the piece.
Why should we tolerate the least common denominator in this country to set the rules for everyone. Just makes no sense.
Tell him to kiss your white Jesus-loving ass and move along.
Is there a no white Jesus clause in the Constitution?
Is there a limit to this silliness?
Wait! You mean Jesus, the ancient Jew from Galilee, wasn’t tall, white, blonde with perfect teeth? Next thing you know someone will say he looked like a bearded Gilbert Gottfried?
What effect will this protest have on the millions of folks who still have those velvet religious paintings?
Jesus is a fictional character much like Santa Claus…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXAGpCTiGlQ…… If I did not have to use the bathroom, I might believe…
You people believe Obama is the messiah yet deny Jesus?
Bama is not only a faggot but a flunky for the Jewish cabal and a traitor to the Black side of his ancestry..
Dang.Welcome Rev.Jerimiah Wright!
Even if the story of a human Jesus is/were a fiction, His Spirit is not a fiction. There’s a lot to learn from the Bible and the stories of Jesus. The most important detail of the entire Old and New Testaments is the fatal flaw of humanity. The story of Jesus is the most superb explanation of it I have ever come across. Before anyone jumps to say the idea of Spirit or spirits is unscientific, think of our use of the word “spirit” to refer to someone’s personality, agenda, and motive. It’s quite handy to have a character (Jesus) who embodies the best of humanity without our blemishes, a model to follow. And if this character is a model for us, He can be depicted as looking like us, whatever race we are, the better for us to identify with Him. A white Jesus (a racial “translation”) reaches white people who need to be reached with His message.
FITS may be fortunate not to have a retard child yet. But, all it would take would be for a non-retard child to trip down the steps.
Go ahead and tempt fate. If you end up with a retard child, it might engender some empathy.
You are a fool.
They are especially offensive to him, he claims, because he himself has “black hair like wool and skin of bronze color.”
I’m going to sue Justin Renel Joseph. Renel for a middle name is OK, but nobody who has “black hair like wool and skin of bronze color,” should be named Justin. That’s just too confusing.
The Aryan Nation HQ over in Lexington County (where else?) should have prints of these up on the walls.
Well, if he was God/Son of God, wouldn’t you throw out your standard analysis of what folks from the region looked like? He was born in the region, and lived in the region, but was not really OF the region.
That’s a really good comment. I didn’t think of it like that, but what color of skin, eyes, and hair does God the Father of all mankind (and, by the way, Jesus His Son) have? Being God, He could’ve made His Son Jesus look like any race He chose. But we do know that Jesus looked so much like everybody else that Judas Iscariot the betrayer had to greet Him with a kiss so that the Bad Guys would know which man was Jesus.
