Stop lying? When did I say South Park was political correct? I see you're confused so I'll write it again, South Parks obsession with PC this season, which introduced PC principal, began with Caitlyn Jenner.

No, it's obvious that PC is has been hyped up recently and it's not because you think PC has reach extremism levels. So please, how about you stop lying because we all know you haven't been fighting against political correctness for a long time. Well, unless you've been a college student for a couple of decades then maybe I will believe you.


Thanks for proving my point. Alluding to the fact that colleges have been the breeding ground for PC extremists proves you know it has been going on for a long time.

Next time don't make it so easy okay sport?

I understood all of it. No need to start with the passive aggressive personal attacks.

He said:




If you're a Christian based on what his skin color was then you shouldn't really be Christian


What does that have to do with this post? Please do tell.


Passive aggressive personal attacks? Read into posts much? He was on topic and no one is being aggressive. So you pick one sentence out of his entire post and attack him? Hello pot, meet kettle.

That quote has everything to do with the story in the OP. For you, I'll copy and paste the article from the NY Post and maybe this time you'll get it.



A Manhattan man is suing the Met, claiming it’s committing sacrilege by depicting Jesus as a blond.

“Racist” paintings portraying Christ as an “Aryan” male should be removed from the walls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Justin Renel Joseph argues in his Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit.

The masterpieces are “offensive aesthetic whitewashing” of the reality that the Savior, as a native of the Middle Eastern region, had “black hair like wool and skin of bronze color,” says Joseph, 33, who is acting as his own lawyer.


I didn't realize I had to pick more than one sentence to prove he was off topic. This was about this lawsuit being ridiculous and beyond PC. Not about the ethics of Christianity.

As an agnostic I find religion revolting, but will fight for people to believe what they want.

People need to realize that cases like these are not common. These are the exception, not the norm.

These stories are sensationalized to justify and confirm the biases of people who believe their religion, way of life, ethnic background or creed is somehow "under attack".

Lawsuits and stories such as this give people an example to point at, nod their heads and confirm to one another that the world is out for them and their way of life.

The defense attourney and judge should order the plaintiff to produce photographic evidence that Jesus wasn't white. What? You can't? Case dismissed, plaintiff charged with wanton waste of state resources and filing false claims, fine equivalent to 100% of his personal assets.

For get Jesus being white how about if he was even real, and Jesus is black I saw he him on cable.

Hey hay hay we all recognize bs when we see it so don't try and turn this into a political thing, left vs right because I can just as easily pull up many things social injustice warriors said and done.
Martin Luther King as well as his name sake from the late middle ages great examples of social justice warriors.

Ought to be arrested for a frivolous law suit!

Or maybe, people have a focus for their discontent with the state of some things?

You can only push people so far before they get tired of it, and a lot of people have been pushed very, very far over the past 8 years on matters like this. PC and other social engineering items intended to somehow referee a so-called "perfect" society is becoming stifling.

It has gotten so you can't even enter or exit a room without worrying about how someone else might perceive your actions. They might be "microaggressing" if you don't share skin color/religion/socio-economic status/gender or some other perceived divisive factor with that person.

This atmosphere has created by both PC and progressivism. It is not tolerant and it is not utopia. And if people are getting fed up with it, it's all to the better. I'm tired of everyone else in the room judging my every breath through the lens of their own personal grievances, especially when doing so gives them power over my life.

I only assume colleges are known for being PC because of South Park.

Seriously, no one believes you are fighting PC in your everyday life.

He wasn't off topic, you're just offended for whatever reason and/or can't comprehend what he wrote.

The man suing is upset because Religion, and he's a moron.

I'm pretty sure there are Roman records that prove he existed. Those records don't talk about miracles or him being the son of God though.

No they weren't. I'm on ATS daily and it wasn't until the arrival of Trump did I notice many posters going over board with the term PC.
