Want some silliness about Jesus for a Friday?
Sure you do. Here’s some “wisdom” from MyOutSpirit:
Jesus Christ was human, so he must have had sexual feelings,
It’s an excellent start, promising an article exploring the consequences of the doctrine of the Hypostatic Union. Does the Bible have anything to say that might help us understand this aspect of Jesus’ maleness?

but maybe he was so enlightened that his attractions were not limited to a single gender.
The bisexuality of Jesus is a new subject being explored by a variety of artists and authors. For example, I wrote about it in my novel, Jesus in Love, and photographer Peter Grahame explores it in his photo montage Saying Goodbye to John and Mary.
Did I miss that in my Scriptures? Quickly, someone give me the references in the Gospels. I don’t care if they’re Synoptic or Johanine, this is cool stuff. This photo montage is obviously depicting a scene I must have skipped over in Sunday School. I should preach on it on Sunday…
Grahame lets viewers figure out his symbolism for themselves, but he did offer this reflection on his bisexual Jesus image: “In the back Jesus ascends to ever-new adventures in the cosmos, leaving his legacy behind… as each and every one of us will also do… what will our spiritual legacy be? It’s up to each of us.”
Ever new adventures? When’s the comic coming out? Will it be in the fantasy or sci-fi section? Is there a TV spin-off? A movie franchise? “Flash Gordon and the Son of Joseph versus the alien green monster thingies”?
I guess it’ll be showing after the documentary where liberals complain that conservatives falsely allege that they don’t take the Bible seriously.
