Hot Jesus = bad

kimberley said...

Oh sweet Lord...tell me a Catholic didn't paint that.

kimberley said...

And why does Jesus look like Billy Ray Cyrus?

Anthony S. "Tony" Layne said...

Plus, his face looks a little puffy. But maybe that's just my envy talking.

Oh for the love of...

Why don't we just put Our Lord on black-velvet playing poker with the dogs (look, that one in the corner is cheating) and be done with it?

The Ironic Catholic said...

Where did you get that?

And why didn't I find it first?

KimP said...

There are no words. Ick!

Oh yeah. "Hot, Tat Jesus". I first saw him on my pal, Chris' blog on this post about the music (contemporary crap at our 6pm Mass) at church:

There is just so much wrong with this image...I don't think most people (including me) even know where to begin.

I frequently enjoy your blog and even after this contemptibly imbecilic image think, more or less, well of you.
I more find it curious how we live in a consistent graphic community: despite the dickhead smirk, the clothes and the graceless pugnacious stance, we all easily recognize this is supposed to represent the Christ. The vocabulary of a certain length, color and type of hair say it. It makes Him easy to degrade.

Yuck.

He's purdy.

Paul Nichols said...

Wow. Talk about wasting your talent on trash. I know, I know - I should talk.

Angela M. said...

I think the image looks more like Chad Kroeger from Nickelback. Ewww!

Rich said...

Yet another attempt to make the "Human" Jesus too caught up in our human idiosyncrasies and fetishes. I call it the "Blah Jesus". Nothing special. Just another guy.

Dixie said...

It makes Him easy to degrade.

Which is one of the reasons the "other worldliness" of iconography works better than more lifelike human, sensual images of Jesus and the Saints. There is a method to the madness of the ancient ways.

Old Bob said...

And why doesn't His tattoo say "MOTHER" ? Huh?

Kim Luisi said...

Wow. This Jesus is hotter than Georgia asphalt in July. Where can I purchase? I'd like to hang him over my couch right next to my black velvet portrait of Jesus and Elvis.

I never thought any depiction of Jesus could turn me off . . . but I was wrong. =S

At least we know by the tattoo that a Catholic didn't paint it!
