THE GAYNESS OF JESUS DOESN'T MATTER

The Civil Writer Magazine

A Brazilian judge ordered Netflix to take off the air a Christmas special that some called blasphemous for depicting Jesus as a gay man and which prompted a gasoline bomb attack on the satirists home behind the program. Should it be a law or a crime when someone's imagination runs away with them. Just as there are individuals who believe Jesus was straight without a wife or kids, how farfetched is it to believe he was gay when Judaism approves marriage for their men after bar mitzvah. After this age, the boys and girls bear their own responsibility for Jewish ritual law, tradition, and ethics, and are able to participate in all areas of Jewish community life.

One result of life is marriage after becoming a man.

The time between puberty and age twenty has been considered the ideal time for men and women to be wed in traditional Jewish thought. If Jesus didn't fulfill this tradition you can only surmise two things, 1. He was gay. 2. He didn't find it expedient to get married after coming of age. Peter was married; the three Synoptic Gospels recount how Peter's mother-in-law was healed by Jesus at their home in Capernaum.

Whether Jesus was straight or gay had no relevance because afterall he didn't follow the letter of the laws of Moses. If he was gay wasn't it strange when (Mark 10: 2) Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” We will never know if Jesus was married or gay even if there is speculation that Mary Magdalene was his wife. There are 21 years of his life that add more speculation that he was gay.
