If Jesus was a Rich Fat White Republican Baptist Male
A Motivational Speaker
A Life Coach
Incapable of Critical Reasoning
Illiterate in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek
But oh so prolific, his entourage, in their panoply of English paraphrases of a homogeneous, therapeutic, self-help Bible
What if the real Jesus, the Jesus of history, was a Jewish Aesop, a Jewish Spartacus?
What if Jesus was a bad-ass, kick-ass, poor-ass, low-class, yet still brilliant, rhetorically biting, Aramaic-speaking, Greek-reading colored Jew?
What if Jesus was the complete opposite of everything Orange County Republican Christians hold dear?
What does that make Rick Warren?
What does that make all of his followers? Devotees? Fundamentalist Capitalist Consumerist Cultists?
