NYT’s Stupid Questions Edition: What Religion Would Jesus Be?

In what should be a question with the most obvious answer in the history of questions, the New York Times recently queried, “What religion would Jesus be?” According to columnist Nicholas Kristof, “One puzzle of the world is that religions often don’t resemble their founders.” Comparing Christianity’s long-held beliefs about sexuality to apartheid and hacking off the genitals of girls, Kristof complains that religions have turned their collective backs on the liberal agendas of their collective founders.

    I already thought he was Buddhist. I saw it on CNN.

      Muslims claim he was a Muslim along with Adam, so it does get confusing.

    • Samuel Q-L

      Buddha is a European invention according to conspiracy nut cases.

    If Kristol had any functional cognitive capabilities, he would have committed suicide by now.

    There are many things we don’t know about the historical Yeshua of Nazareth, but I had thought his religion was one thing that had been settled.

    • vwVwwVwv

      how do you know his name was Yeshua, there are Joshua, Yeshuach,
      Yossi, yeshupht and many more that can be the real name.

        I confess I don’t know a lot about Hebrew names but Yeshua is how it’s been transcribed in accounts I’ve read by Jewish sources.

        • vwVwwVwv

          there are no jewish sources calling him yeshua.
          yeshua is possible but its 1 out of
          10+ possible at least.

          the churches fathers did with constantin a great job, not much left
          of the jesus person, not evan his name. tragic.
          no sise, color of hair, no things he
          liked, was he singing
          or dancing…

          everything lost, replaced by a holy thing with no fase, no soul, no personality. 🙁

    Liberals are torn. On the one hand they want to say “Islam” on the other hand they need to denigrate all religions. Of course the fact that he WAS Jewish I guess escapes them.

    Not sure he’d approve of Pope Frankie… I’d like to be a fly on the wall for that meeting.
