Sometimes I Don't Know Where to Begin

Just so you know, sometimes I don’t respond to things that are said about Christ, Christianity, or the church on the news not because I agree (in fact most of the time the media gets it wrong), but because they get it so spectacularly wrong that I don’t hardly know where to begin. In response to the latest outrage, I’m going to just point out that Jesus was a Middle Eastern/Mediterranean/Galilean Jew/Semite and the gospels give us no reason to believe there was anything unusual about his appearance (that is before he was raised from the dead and with the exception of the transfiguration). In the event that you don’t know what this post is in response to, simply count yourself among the lucky ones.
