Precious Snowflake Sues Art Museum Over Baby Jesus

Someone really needs a Time Out in a corner to contemplate just where his life too a turn down Crazy Lane

(NY Post) A Manhattan man is suing the Met, claiming it’s committing sacrilege by depicting Jesus as a blond.

“Racist” paintings portraying Christ as an “Aryan” male should be removed from the walls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Justin Renel Joseph argues in his Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit.

The masterpieces are “offensive aesthetic whitewashing” of the reality that the Savior, as a native of the Middle Eastern region, had “black hair like wool and skin of bronze color,” says Joseph, 33, who is acting as his own lawyer.

He says he suffered “personal stress” after viewing “The Holy Family with Angels” by Sebastiano Ricci; “The Resurrection” by Perugino; “The Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes” by Tintoretto; and “The Crucifixion” by Francesco Granacci.

The Met responded by telling to to go (dirty word starting with F) himself and to get a life, and that there are plenty of other places he can visit other than the Met, and why is he trying to ruin it for everyone else? Just kidding. That would be a sane world answer

“When they were painted, it was typical for artists to depict subjects with the same identity as the local audience. This phenomenon occurs in many other cultures, as well,” said Met spokeswoman Elyse Topalian.

I’m betting there were lots of “is he f’ing kiddings?” and “what the hell is the matter with this guys” when the employees learned of this suit, which, get this, based on saying the “Civil Rights Act of 1964 can’t discriminate on a protected basis.” I’ve been to lots of museums and art places in my life, including the Met. I love the Smithsonian art museum in D.C. And they all have similar style Christian paintings which reflect the “same identity.” Anyhow, welcome to the United States Of the Offended.

    History is written by the conquerors! Caucasians dominate western civilization so Jesus is white.

    Jeffery must have missed the expert’s quote:

    Just for the record, I have never cared about the race of Christ because the Bible actually talks about race not mattering when it comes to important issues. It is therefore not a surprise that Jeffery and other liberals would bring up race as they see the world through their racist eyes.

    Justin Renel Joseph has a fool for a client.

  5. Jl says:

    Or, he could just refuse to go to the Met.

  6. Jeffery says:

    Works of art are fiction. Dogs don’t sit around playing poker and Jesus wasn’t white.

    Wow. Another area in which you lay bare your ignorance for all to see.

    Another pejorative from the Queen of Insults!

    Jesus was a physically unimposing, short, stout, dark-skinned, broad nosed, dark-haired, middle-Eastern Jewish guy. He looked more like the middle-Eastern Muslims you despise than the Nordic prince you imagine.

    Perhaps accurate portrayals of Jesus would help Caucasian, Christian, Conservatives be a bit more understanding of non-white, non-Christians.

    You say race doesn’t matter, yet you go batshit crazy when someone suggests baby Jesus wasn’t a white kid from Indiana.

    Recall that your gods caused humans to evolve first in what is now known as Africa, and these dark-skinned early humans migrated out of Africa to the Levant, into Asia Minor, Europe and Asia. Recall too that the migrants into what is now Europe evolved certain physical characteristics (not to mention interbreeding with another species, Neanderthals – as an aside, check your DNA) and these physical characteristics are represented in what we westerners refer to as our art and culture.
