Martyr of the Eternal Pagan Church. Accused of Heresy, sentenced to death by crucifiction.
Jesus is trans.
Jesus is black. Jesus is the colonized. Jesus is every victim of political torture, every battered spouse, every 14 year old child thrown out of their homes over whom they love, every person sleeping on the cold bare sidewalk right now because the municipal government peppered all of the park benches with spikes. When Jesus of Nazareth reached out to lepers, and tax collectors, and unwed mothers, and prostitutes, He wasn't making a statement on the specific nature of tax collectors. He was looking to the most despised people of the day, and ministering to them. He loved the rejected, the colonized - the Wretched of the Earth, (as Fanon called them) - not despite the fact that they were marginalized, but specifically because of it. To understand the timelessness of this message, you don't need to pick apart every letter of two thousand year old scriptures, you need only to look for the marginalized in your own time - in your own society. To understand the mystery of the crucifixion, you need only look for those whom your own society crucifies.
- Various authors, such as Valentin Tomberg, referred to Jesus' magecraft.
