Emory University Displays Drag Queen Student’s Photo of Himself as ‘Gay Jesus’

Emory University Displays Drag Queen Student’s Photo of Himself as ‘Gay Jesus’

“What I created as a piece of art that calls attention to these facts that are often overlooked in mainstream Christian discourse”

So edgy. So stunning and brave. By the way, Emory University is affiliated with the United Methodist Church.

Campus Reform reports:

EXCLUSIVE: Methodist university displays student drag queen’s photo of himself as ‘gay’ Jesus

A photograph featuring Jesus Christ as a gay man was recently featured at Emory University’s Senior Capstone Showcase.

The photo was a self-portrait by Emory graduate Tommy Greenler, who in the accompanying text raised speculations about Jesus’ sexuality by asking, “Why did he spend much of his adult life living with 12 male admirers.”

“Why was John the only disciple present at the Crucifixion, when many gospels confirmed that Jesus loved him in a special way,” Greenler asks.

Emory University is located in Atlanta, Georgia, and is affiliated with the United Methodist Church.

“What I created as a piece of art that calls attention to these facts that are often overlooked in mainstream Christian discourse,” Greenler told Campus Reform, “using the iconography of Jesus that has developed (thanks to artists) over hundreds of years.”

Campus Reform covered Greenler’s drag performance last year at Glenn Memorial Chapel, a Methodist church affiliated with the university. The organization Emory Pride hosted the event.

In the photo, Greenler poses on the cross with red-painted nails, dons fake blood, and wears a crown of thorns.

“I hope that viewers will find this photograph confrontational,” Greenler states in the accompanying text. “[A]s I have had to confront being called a sinner my whole life for something I believe that Jesus of Nazareth and I may have had in common.”

The photograph is titled “Nailed to Sin,” referencing Greenler’s own sexuality.

May the Holy Spirit, in His mercy, cast out the darkness that resides in this young man’s being that causes him to so twist his thinking. “Jesus was gay, that’s why he spent all of his time with 12 male friends “.
Romans 1 all the way down, thinking they were wise, they became fools.
Rather than desiring to be confrontation, maybe he should desire pursuing what is true.

“I hope that viewers will find this photograph confrontational”

This is the point. This is how the idiot proves his bona fides as an “artist” in the modern world. He will be roundly applauded by the usual suspects for his “courage.”

Too bad the work is so derivative. He won’t get the merchandising and speaking deals out of it he hopes for.

When Tommy Greenler passes, I not quite certain in which bolgia of the eighth circle his immortal soul will be found, or will it be some other area?.

Colleges/universities are fast becoming the 10th level of hell in Dante’s Inferno.

How about displaying a homosexual Muhammad, or a child molesting Muhammad ? (Aisha was 6 when she wed, and 9 when Muhammad consummated the marriage). Oh that’d be a hate crime? Typical Leftist double standards.

    No school would allow something like that knowing that Muslims would be offended, resulting in violent retaliation.
