[polldaddy poll=5539666]Okay, so just to be clear. This image came about relative to an online discussion I was having with an Episcopal reverend and a Southern Baptist pastor. The Episcopal reverend thought that in the main progressive Christians, loving Christ as they do, would appreciate this picture, because they would feel that it illustrates Jesus showing his feelings about those who use his name to bring harm or injustice to others: they would appreciate, he thought, the moral indignation it represents, and with which they would identify.
The Southern Baptist thought liberal Christians would still think it too irreverent.So I said, “Well, let’s find out. Christians of all kinds read my blog. Why don’t I put the picture up there with a little poll, and let’s see what people think?” That’s all it is. Trust me: I have as much respect for Christ as anyone could.
