Family Research Council VP Jerry Boykin: Jesus 'Was A Man's Man' - VIDEO

Boykin

At William Jessup University's Men's Prayer Breakfast several months ago, Family Research Countil Executive Vice-President Jerry Boykin assured the audience that Jesus was not feminine, but rather a hulking guy with muscles. Boykin's talk, on the "4 P's of Biblical Manhood," took issue with the feminization of Jesus in imagery and discussions in churches around the country. "Part of the problem is that we've lost our understanding of who Jesus was," he began, asking, "Do you think he looked like this effeminate picture we always see?" 

Right Wing Watch reports:

As Boykin explained, Jesus was a carpenter and stone mason for most of his life, which required him to be constantly lifting heavy pieces of wood and stone. All this lifting, in turn, meant that Jesus had calluses on his hands and "big, bulging biceps, big ole veins popping out of his arms, thin waist, [and] strong shoulders."

"He was a man," Boykin said. "He was a man's man, but we feminized him in the church ... He was a tough guy and that's the Jesus that I want to be like. That's the side that I want to be like. But we've feminized Jesus in the church and the men can't identify with him anymore; not the kind of men that I want to hang out with, they can't identify with this effeminate Jesus that we've tried to portray. He was a tough guy. He was a man's man."

  1. So, is he saying that the man who preached love, forgiveness and kindness to your fellow man is just too girly so today's men can't "identify" with him?? That those are traits that make you less of a man? This is utter lunacy! Seriously, now we know where RICK gets his material (talking points) from.

    Jesus must be shaking his head over this one. This guy is one of those "false prophets" Jesus talked about.

  2. He'll blame it on the gays next.

    Oh and Jerry, I don't think you have to worry about hanging out with Jesus. If you actually read your bible, you aren't the kind of person Jesus wanted to "hang" with. In fact, I think he has a spot reserved for you in a much warmer place.

  4. AMERICA WANTS STEROID JESUS CAUSE HE'S BETTER AT BEATING UP GAYS, WOMEN, ALL THE WEAKS, AND THE STUPID LIBERAL IMAGE OF A *SIGH* PEACE AND SERENITY SUPER QUEER VERSION OF THE MESSIAH !
    BECAUSE JESUS TOTALLY GRUNTED AT JEWS AND POPPED VEINS IN HIS NECK AT ALL THE COMMIE LAWS AND HABITS OF THE SHEEPLE.
    DANG! AFTER HE ROLLED HIS STEELY BLUE EYES AND CLENCHED HIS SQUARE JAW, HE LIFTED WOOD AND STONE AND BUILT - BEER BREWERIES ! AND *DUH* CHURCHES TO HONOR HIS FATHER.
    JESUS WAS SO OVER IT MAN. HE WAS LIKE, WATCH OUT HERE I COME TO CHANGE THE WORLD AND YOU BETTER HAD BACK OFF BEFORE I GIVE ALL YA'LL WEDGIES.
    HE WASN'T EVEN NAILED TO THE CROSS.
    THEY MADE THAT UP TO ! HE TOTALLY KNEW HE WAS GONNA DIE SO HE JUST CLIMBED UP ONE ONE DAY AND WAITED *DERR*
    AND WHEN HE WAS RESURRECTED HE FARTED, BURPED AND SCRATCHED HIS BALLS AND SAID "GOD BLESS MURRKA" THEN HE FLEW UP INTO THE SKY LIKE A TOTAL BOSS!!!!!


    - Right?

  5. The man doesn't understand - among many, many other things - how religious art works.

  6. @Buck--

    I thought the same thing. This guy was enjoying his mental image of Jesus just a little too much.

  7. Nice name there Boy!kin.

    BTW - Harrison Ford was a carpenter too and while he has a nice bod he is not exactly totally ripped.

    So take your latent gay fantasies and get down to San Diego and pitch your ideas to the porn companies.

  8. After a hard day of handling wood JC just loved the gym. He'd pump up for hours making eye contact and letting the guys know that Jesus loved them. Later he'd take a steam. He had 12 mates behind him all the time. He was a man's man.

  14. He also thinks Jesus is white.

  15. Idiot.
    The historical Jesus loved to have his feet washed by Mary and Martha, hung out with Mary Magdalene.
    And then there was the special relationship with John.........
    So WTF are you talking about a "man's man" ?
    Are you just making this up as you go along ?

  19. Popular Mechanics did a scientific article on this some ten years ago, basically concluding that Jesus was a very average-looking Semite male who was probably about 5'1 and 110 lbs, as was typical for his ethnicity at the time. But they agreed that he was probably more physically fit and muscular than most artistic imaginings of him.

  20. He would have been buff if he ate a high protein modern diet, but diets of that age were grain oriented and not high enough in protein or calories to keep a lot of muscle on. He would have been lithe, but just about all males were back then, since so much physical labor was required from everyone. And a lot of art reflects a thinness to him that's probably appropriate. As to callouses, they can disappear within a year or so of leaving work, and are a minor physical characteristic.

  21. What would a king-sized pussy like Jerry Boykin know about somebody being a man's man?

  24. Tough? Every LGBT person who has come out of the closet and had to live with the likes of macho neanderthals and other bullies whose narrow defination of how things should be, every queer person is way, way more tougher with a stronger sense of self and because of all the zhit we went though, a lot more compassionate! this idiot wouldn't survive a day in my heels!

  25. Stone mason?

    In any case, I'm pretty certain Jesus never wore a floral-print shirt...
