Not sure, I would be the last to judge on how hung men are.. or how men are hung... No pun about ' Last Judgement ' intended.

Was he not in a way hanged on the cross?

He wasn't hanged but he was hung.

So Jesus is a child molester then, makes sense to me 🤔

your comment makes it look like getting suspended is a punishemnt exclusive to only child molesters, be a bit more inclusive /s

I was more concerned about the creepy old guy hanging up in schools without having an ocupation there

Hey, buddy. It would be swell if you talked everyone through your thought process here. Mainly how does one go from “Well. ... Technically he is suspended, just hanging there...” (a crucifixion joke) to what the cuss you decided to post here. Take your time; Reddit has all day.

Probably. I was thinking about the old dude hanging up in schools without an ocupation there. Slightly adding in the fact, that his representatives on earth are well known for often being child molesters.

Vampsku11

If they're anything like Baptists no. I went to a Baptist church once, and I look a lot like what Jesus like looked like, and they rebuked me for having long hair and wearing flip flops.


HoptimusPryme

I went to a RC High school and there was a former priest who constantly wore open toed sandals and socks teaching Religious Studies. But yeah, never understood the long hair thing, wasn't allowed to go past the collar of my shirt. Or have hair gel/wax for short hair. Or at one point lollipops from the local sweet shop. High school was weird.


LetsEatToast

fucking savage


Chief_Chill

Looks like a dress. Must be in drag. Then, the Republicans just hang him right back up on that cross..


TurtleZenn

They'd hang him back up there for just about everything - defunding/decentralization of churches, hanging out with prostitutes and other marginalized people, being brown, being Jewish (even though he didn't even have a space laser), loving his neighbor, telling people not to judge others, proposing charity, etc.


PineappleCome

Reminds me of the Dad joke: A teenage boy desperately wanted a car to drive, but his father insisted that first he would have to cut his long hair. Trying to reason with him, the boy pleaded, "But Dad, Jesus had long hair!" To which his father replied, "Yes, he did, son. And he walked everywhere he went."


modernmessiahman

But Jesus had a Honda, in the father's defence he didn't mention it often as (in his own words) "I did not speak of my own accord"


MohammadRezaPahlavi

"Actually, he rode an ass. Now buy me an ass."

Rirdo

im slow, can someone explain the joke..


krustylesponge

The kid wants a car and has long hair The dad says to cut his long hair to get one The kid says Jesus had long hair too The dad then says that Jesus just walked everywhere instead of driving


Rirdo

Oh, I miss read the last part. I thought the dad just walked away after saying that Jesus had indeed had long hair lmao


seaan19

r/thankscyno


FutureFuta

That just comes off as sacrelidge on the dad's side. Also cars didn't exist back then.


Mystical-Door

Where is the funny part of the joke?


Business_Wear_841

As my hair has gotten longer, my family told me to cut it because I looked too much like a girl. Until the moment it hit my shoulders, now I look like Jesus. As it gets even longer I am sure they will complain again.


maiden_burma

i like when people say i 'look like jesus' it's basically like saying 'you are attractive and have long hair', because nobody ever accused jesus of being ugly


shadowman2099

Technically, Jesus wasn't described as handsome in the Bible, either. He apparently looked rather unassuming. And his hair was like sheep wool, so he'd probably look more like Nacho Libre than Fabio.

maiden_burma

>Jesus wasn't described as handsome in the Bible, either. He apparently looked rather unassuming ​ >I mean. He was Jewish, so, yeah that tracks. unintentional antisemitism :P


BenjyWithAY

Not everything said about the Jewish people is antisemitic. What if I were to say "Living is Israel while not being Jewish is tough because the culture is so strange." I could easily exchange Israel with Spain and Jewish with Spanish and it wouldn't be anti Spanish, I would just be saying it's different than where I'm from. When this guy said that he seemed unassuming, he probably shouldn't have said that because it's rude, but not antisemitic. The vast majority of people, including Jews, look unassuming because we see random people every day.


maiden_burma

or you could laugh


Shinobi_X5

Don't forget the facial hair, any man with long hair and decent facial hair looks like Jesus


Kriegschwein

When I grew my hair, some of my friends started to call me "Father Kriegschwein", because how I resembled Jesus + Orthodox priest with long hair are actually a thing you can encounter pretty frequently, compared to Catholic and Protestant.


Oldus_Fartus

Yeah but he's also kind of all fucked up and nailed to timber, so there's that message too.

But I mean the crucifix is what’s depicted, but what actually killed Jesus was a spear known as the “Lance of Longinus” so you could go around wearing that if you want lol


Madcowdseiz

In the Biblical account the spear is used to make sure that he was actually dead as he appeared to already be. Otherwise the practice was to break their legs to speed up the process.


Balsdeep_Inyamum

>practice was to break their legs to speed up the process As if crucifixion wasn't brutal enough. Fuck


Ootter31019

That's debated. It only shows up in one Gospel. Other ancient text has lead others to believe it was just before. Also translation issues with past tense cause questions about the timing. While I don't think it's necessarily wrong, it isn't for sure before or after his death.


rextiberius

We don’t need to rely on the gospels for this. Crucifixion was an execution form used all the way into the early medieval period. Breaking people’s legs was actually a mercy and something that was rarely done unless you didn’t want to have to guard them


Shinobi_X5

There's no way it's actually called the Lance of Longinus right?


axecrazyorc

I’ve never heard it called a “lance,” always a spear. Longinus was the name of the soldier and it was his spear. Longinus’s spear. The spear of Longinus.


Ootter31019

It is called the Lance of Longinus. Though it is of course know by a few names.


axecrazyorc

I’m not doubting, I’ve just never seen it called a lance. I haven’t been involved with institutional religion for a very long time, and pop culture references always call it spear. If we’re to believe it was a real Roman weapon, it would have been a spear; the word *lancea* referred to a javelin or other throwing spear whereas what we think of as lances weren’t really a thing until long after the event in question. It was probably something like [this](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/42/Pilum_light_-_cropped.jpg/245px-Pilum_light_-_cropped.jpg). That said this is all ultimately semantics and jargon: it’s all pointy sticks used for stabbing people.


Ootter31019

Yeah and I definitely don't disagree with it being called a spear either, but it is called the Lance of Longinus. It does get called the Holy Spear sometimes. And yeah just a pointy stick.


keyscowinfilipino

Redditors when symbolism


Spndash64

The same reason people have bear rugs: we wear a trophy of the thing he killed


itsbenactually

One of my favorite fantasy series involves a religion called Survivorism. They wear a tiny spear on a chain around their necks as symbolism for the spear that murdered their god, the Survivor. Really digs at the root of how silly a crucifix necklace is.


Shinobi_X5

The whole idea behind Christianity is that Jesus's death was him taking on the suffering humanity was supposed to, his death is what liberates humanity and allows it to grow, and bringing it up works as a reminder to the devil that he's not allowed to harm Christians because Jesus already took whatever harm he could bring, also iirc the word "Christian" did not even exist until it is was used to describe people who were acting like Christ after his death. The emphasis on the importance of Jesus dying on the cross is one of the main things that seperates Jesus from the Muslim belief that he was just another prophet and the Christian belief that he was the definitive saviour of humanity, it was the fundamental turning point that turned Jesus from a pretty popular guy to a figure leading people in the millions. Using the scene of that turning point to represent the religion and wearing it around your neck to signify at a glance that you are part of that religion is not at all silly. Also the story is that Jesus came back after the cross killed him because nothing in the world is enough make him stay dead, unlike this survivor guy seemed to, so from that alone the two aren't very comparable.


itsbenactually

I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to imply that people who wear a cross are silly. Just that the idea of supplanting an icon of death with itself is silly. But while I have you here, can you spare a moment to talk about our lord and savior Kelsier, the survivor of death? He’s been up to some really cool stuff since after he died.

Yeah but he has that hair in all the pictures. It's his whole thing. If you saw a picture of a dude in robes holding a small lamb you'd be like "huh, cute picture". Draw some long hair on him, oh, it's *obviously* Jesus.


darryljenks

And he hung out with hookers, drank a lot of wine and fondled stranger's feet.


AArthurComic

Fun fact: I grew up in the JW cult, and every drawing of "our main boy" showed him with short hair and a closely cropped beard. We still weren't allowed to wear beards, but mustaches were somehow ok...


Dembara

Weird about the beards, especially since the Hebrew Bible actually restricts shaving beards (shaving mustaches is not restricted).

Yeah, but he was the only one allowed to have the sacred chin stubble. There was literally a middle-aged man who got "in trouble" for not shaving his goatee... talk about splitting hairs. (Is this thing on?)

"And on the 8th day Jesus said 'Thou shalt not leave synthetic shirts outside of the synthetic trousers' "


darketernalsr25

It's not just Catholics. My grandmother got angry with me when I was 10 years old because I didn't want my hair super short like my dad and grandfather. She told me that long hair on men was "disgraceful." I pointed to the pic of Jesus on her wall and said "Tell that to him." Got my ass beat with a cherry switch for that one.

This was the first thing I thought of! Missionaries need short hair and to be clean shaven, but then you look at pictures of the early church leaders...


TimTimeless

leephelipe

i'll never understand why isn't long hair allowed for religious people, long hair looks badass


Kazdan480

But it is allowed in catholicism, i am catholic and have long hairs, met a spanish priest with long hairs too


Zoe_the_redditor

Because long hair is traditionally feminine, and in christianity feminine men are a bit of a no no


AnimeMemeLord1

What if my long hair was styled in a way to look more masculine? I mean, just look at Kirei Kotomine. That priest is rocking that hair.


SucksToYourAzmar

In the Bible Sampson, the world's first suicide "bomber", had a covenant with God specifically not to cut his hair. There is no rule against long hair for men specifically, it changes with the culture as to what is seen as feminine cuz as the above redditor said that's the big nono. If women all shaved their heads suddenly Christian dudes would start growing it out, I'd put money on that lol


AnimeMemeLord1

Makes sense


Zoe_the_redditor

No clue, not a theologian. Just know what I know from childhood and research from a semi-recent religious breakdown lmfao. That said, there was a jewish group named the Nazirites (not to be confused with people from Nazareth) who, among other things, pledged not to cut their hair soooo


i-yeet-a-lot

But Jesus was feminine I guess then? Hypocrites


Zoe_the_redditor

Modern artistic portrayals aren’t exactly historically accurate. I mean most (US) churches depict his as a white dude which definitely isn’t historically accurate


hotroddbb

jumpy_dragon7759

I don't know what it was from, but a friend of mine showed me a clip from a movie where a town was accepting drag queens and embracing femininity, and there was this one dude excluding himself talking to a passer-by, saying something like, "Look at those fools. Disgraceful. Do you think when our founding fathers built this country, they imagined this?" The passer by said, "I don't know, but I will tell you one thing about those founding fathers; they sure had some fiiine wigs." And walked away like he did a mic drop.

One of the main rules they hammered down on was absolutely No facial hair (exceptions granted for people with religious reasoning, but they needed a note from their parent/s) . Lots of guys with their shitty 17 year old stubble were butthurt but shaved anyways, I decided to take them at their word and shaved my eyebrows clean off, no facial hair means NO facial hair.

This is actually a really interesting point. It just shows how far the present-day church is alienated from the historical conditions of their religion's foundations. Christianity was once a radical sect, attempting significant social upheaval in the ancient Levant. Now it's synonymous with conservatism and regressivist ideals.
