Christians don't believe the bible?? Or are you suggesting their numbers aren't that great?

Regardless, that is a discussion for a different topic.

Don't wish to derail the OP.

We were made in the image of god.

Except for ugly people of course. Unless you're saying God is ugly.

Wha? I'm talking about you saying that a large amount of the population takes what the clown quoted in the Original Post says as gospel.

Since God has been both a donkey and a burning bush, I think God can be an ugly person too if He so desires.

If we are made in the image of God, the big dude probably doesn't handle the rest of the universe to well, given the very limited terrestrial functionality of our bodies.

George Carlin said the nicest way to describe God was that he was an underachiever.

White, Black, Asian - it doesn't matter. Why not just use an image of what he actually was which is Jewish/Arabic. That ought to shut up everybody.

Most of us do, but they have a taste for power now.

But it won't, and the argument isn't over what he looks like. The argument is over already existing iconography.

They're just looking for more excuses to destroy more stuff that isn't theirs because ... it's white.

I strongly disagree, and let me just leave it at that.

I'll take that as a yes.

One would think. But just like with TV, we want our heroes to look like us.

It's really shallow if you think about it. It also argues for poor teaching of literature. One of the reasons stories resonate is that they speak to us. Most of us were never young teenage Italians like Romeo and Juliet, but that play endures.

If we can only enjoy a thing because the protagonist looks like us, then we had craptastic literary teachers who never taught us other ways to connect with the text and main characters of any given story.

Interestingly enough, I found Black Panther entertaining and a reasonably good movie while I failed to connect with Captain Marvel at all. I have zero demographically in common with T'Chala and I should have had almost everything (even hair and eye color) in common with Carol Danvers, but I found her uncompelling and her story dull. T'Challa on the other hand had an entertaining journey. Among other things, he fell prey to overconfidence and lost and had to recover from the defeat.

That makes for interesting story, and it's an experience I've had myself, so I could relate.
