Guatemala: handsy Jesus

Shot in Guatemala: A poster of Christ sort of groping some ripped gringo, and heaven knows what else is going on from behind.


Found on the wall of a very traditional shop of "tipica" curios and local crafts, managed by a most traditional Catholic fellow -- a Guatemalan native -- who would probably be horrified if he saw the tags on this upload.


This was kind of funny to see, also, because there are no people who look like either this Jesus or this beefy saved guy in the town where I shot the image.

    I bought that poster in Guate because I thought it looked so homoerotic. I understand the one posters explanation but it's still kind of HOT. HEHE

    Nail? That looks like a freaking railroad spike! That's what happens when you send Scott Bakula to nail up jesus. Captain Kirk would have used real nails.

    um.. jesus isn't holding it. the man is.

    I love the fact that Christ loves us all regardless if we speak in such horrific ways towards Him. The great thing is, like this picture shows, He is always there in our time of need never leaving and always holding on to us tight.

    Thomas blackshear II is the artist for those interested and he has some amazing work!

    Always remember that no matter how demeaning your words are to Jesus He is always there loving you and ready for you to be a part of his family

    I feel sorry for people who have not had real love never known how wonderful it is to come to a saving knowlage of Jesus. I am so glad to know Him. It is writen only the ones the Sprit brings will know Jesus and only Jesus can bring you to God. How empty is a life that only tears down others work.
    How sad to only have fun if you are hurting another or having meaningless non-productive sex?

    Although by our worldly standards picking someone up and saving them may seem like a sexual obsession, it's not when Jesus is involved. The nail in his hand was used for torture, but not in that manner, and was in the end a tool for saving, not a utensil for indecency.

    I prefer to think something "indecent" is about to happen! :-)

    Jesus is all about rectitude, which comes from the same root as rectum (straight). Just saying...
