Jesus Showed Up at a Korean Pride Parade to Counter His Bigoted Followers

At the Seoul pride parade over the weekend, Jesus appeared with sign in hand to offer an alternative religious message.

CoolWithIt

He wasn’t the only Jesus there, either (which you have to assume is a thorny theological problem):

As much as I love their signs, there’s something odd about these Jesii basically saying, “The Bible is still true… just not the way those people are interpreting it.” The anti-LGBTQ bigotry is almost always faith-based. Following Jesus isn’t the solution when the people protesting the parade would say that’s exactly what they’re doing.

Rant aside, this is awesome. There’s no reason this can’t happen at every pride parade to counter the haters.
