¡Jesús! A ‘Hispanic’ Jesus Shows up in Texas!

Reality is definitely weirder –and more fun– than fiction.

Take the dark-skinned, black-haired Jesus that was unveiled Sunday at the Chapel of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas. According to the local press, a “Hispanic” Jesus (yes! as Hispanic as Nash Finch’s cheese) was brought all the way from Italy (?) to replace the church’s old Caucasian-looking Jesus:

“I never thought about what Jesus looked like before this. It’s like I’m looking at myself,” said a man who helped supervised the $5 million renovation of the chapel. “My wife doesn’t even believe it has brown skin. She says, ‘Every time we’ve seen a figure of Jesus, it’s always been white.’ I told her, ‘Just wait until Sunday and you’ll see.'”

Sadly, we have not been able to witness the miracle (being holed up in New York City and all), but one question remains: How come the Hispanic Jesus had to be brought all the way from Italy? Wouldn’t it be easier to bring it directly from you-know-where? … I mean, I’m sure the fee –Coyote-included– would have been much more affordable, though I guess you don’t want to take any chances with the Minutemen.

Amén!

  1. Jesus didn’t get started in Italy, Spain nor Latin America.

    Jesus, if he even existed, was never white. He was black and if there’s any doubt maybe brown but that’s a small maybe. He’s origins are in the middle east which for the most part at the time were black or African descent.

  2. I don’t care what color Jesus Christo is! I looooooooooooooooooooooooove HIM with all my heart and joy! Jesus Christo comes in all colors! He made all the colors for us! I love Our Father Jesus and I love Your Spirit! Your Spirit brings peace to our souls! Muchas gracias! Jesus!
