Brown Jesus

Man, I have been meaning to post all day and all weekend and finally have a moment to do so. It was a fun gay weekend. That conference on gay parenting was good for the most part. One of my most favorite parts of the thing was when someone asked a panel member about religion and their kids. After the woman who asked this question heard what church a panel member belongs to, she exclaimed, "Oh they're really diverse. They even have a brown Jesus!" Cause apparently, that makes anything culturally competent. Are you fucking kidding me lady? My jaw almost dropped when she said that. Terri wanted to ask her if she's ever been to a black person's home, a black church, or even watched an episode of Good Times, where a "brown Jesus" wouldn't be such groundbreaking shit! Whoa.
