{{ Ezekiel, I am curious whether you believe that Jesus was a real person or not. }}

No. He was a composite of earlier myths, such as Apollo (or “Helios” from which the word “heal” originates) and Eros (brotherly love). I’ve discussed this matter some years back, including the following essay:

{{ I have one straight friend who said that he investigated the question thoroughly and came away with the conviction that there was not even such a real person, just something based on fables. I was surprised by his certainty, because he is very bright and had always had the impression that it was broadly considered that there was at least such a real historical figure, even if the divinity is another question. }}

Your straight friend is quite correct. I am astounded at how often confirmed atheists describe Jesus as one who really existed. That’s like throwing yourself into a den of lions when you are otherwise perfectly safe, no one is threatening you!

I do believe, however, that Jesus is quite real (he does visit and guide me after all, along with other gods such as Zeus, Horus, Buddha, Isis, etc.) as a myth from man’s imagination so powerful and prolonged…that he will soon spring into reality and appear before the world to vindicate gay people. We create our gods as much as they create us. A very sympatico relationship. :)

Your activist alter-ego from the Left Coast,

Thanks for the info, that is interesting. A columnist for the Boston Globe by the name of Alex Beam wrote an article claiming that it was clear that Jesus was a real historical figure, but I have never trusted Beam, or the Globe, or the media in general.

I need to research the subject in more depth myself in order to arm myself with details and factual information on the subject.

That has already been done, many times over by most respected literary and historical scholars: JESUS NEVER EXISTED. If you do your own research in this matter, FYI, you’ll be trodding a well-worn path…as well as wasting your time, since others have already done this work for you.

Now, Jesus’s MANIFESTATION on this planet, which is VERY soon, is another box of chocolates altogether. He will be brought forth into this reality, not because he ever really existed, but because the Mind of Man will make him manifest, by sheer will. Here, I’ll give you a hint:

Who the fudge do you think I am anyway, who calls himself “Jehovah’s Queer Witness,” and publishes a vastly underrated web site titled “The Final Testament,” with “gay-bible” in the URL? Don’t you think my Father in Heaven is a brilliant games-master, to contrive this scenario? He even went so far as to create a false mental illness where people are deluded into believing that they, too, are Jesus Christ.

My Dad’s quite a jokester, to say the least.

Okay, the cat’s out of the bag. I AM your savior…I am EVERYONE’S savior.

But you don’t have to believe me. I’m nothing if not ego-less.

queer prophet of incomprehensible dimension

men Zeus-Dad sends me. My heavenly name is Apollo.)

Ezekiel,

I don’t think that I’m Jesus, and will never say that I am Jesus – or the “anti-Christ” – but I suspect that *others* will someday say things on that order. Probably more thinking the latter, especially Muslims who think that “Dajjal” -their “antiChrist” is one-eyed, and they make a big deal of it.

I doubt that I am in spirit of anti-Christ because I really think that I want to see the right things in the world- rationality, empathy, basic dignity for minorities. I want to see gay people leading healthy lives in meaningful relationships. I would like to see the environment respected, living in balance, consciously using voluntary incentives to try to maintain an optimal population level. Etc. On the other hand, I see adherents of Islam committing terror everywhere from India to France to Russia to England to the U.S. Out of proportion to grievance, directed at wrong targets, rooted mostly in hate and religious fanaticism.

I believe in force when it is necessary, but then again, the Christian “God” supposedly created Hell, flooded the earth, threatens apocalypse. I really don’t think that my own mental intentions are less justified or really all that different than this concept.

I thought “Ezekiel” was a Biblical prophet rather than Jesus ;-) I am curious- never really asked how you picked on that moniker.

Regards, Tom

{{ Interesting to hear. Of course, it is just my nature to need to check everything out, myself, look at all angles, and try to think originally about the matter at hand, without preconceptions. }}

That’s a good thing you do that. Just to be clear on the matter: I will soon have tremendous IMPACT on this planet, and will play the role of the Messiah…as well as that of the Devil. Don’t know how long that will go on, but my hunch is anywhere from two months to fourteen years. I just won a prize, the Golden Apple if you wish. A gift from our Most Beloved Universe.

I’m not just limited to Jesus or Apollo, you know. Of course, my Randolph is Jehovah/Zeus. And I think that Larkin is possibly one of His main archangels…or perhaps I should call him an arch “Dragon”.

{{ the Christian “God” supposedly created Hell, flooded the earth, threatens apocalypse. }}

You know very well that God is a character in a big book written by highly-fallible (and often manipulative) human beings rife with dogma. Ergo: God did not create hell, flood the world, or threaten apocalypse…the authors did a fine job of that, using Jehovah as their literary vehicle (a puppet if you will)…putting their thoughts and their wishful thinking (often quite egomaniacal, I might add) into the character they call YHWH.

There are many other perspectives on God that do not define Him as a violent and easily angered war monger. There are much more peaceful and eclectic outlooks of the universe, than Christianity, Islam or Judaism, such as: pagan belief systems (including the Celtic whom I favor), animism, shamanism; along with Buddhism, Shintoism, Vodun…and even counterculture Christianity which follows Gnostic lore.

Just wanted to be clear here that the rabidly insane and macho behavior of Our Biblical Deity, is not the last word on Who or What this “god” really is. In fact, such reckless gods will soon vanish into history’s dustbin, and be replaced by Earth and Peace Friendly elves, leprechauns, dragons, faeries and sundry things that all go bump in the night.

{{ I thought “Ezekiel” was a Biblical prophet rather than Jesus ;-) I am curious- never really asked how you picked on that moniker. }}

I decided to quit dilly dallying and pick a new name, fer chrissakes! So I said: “The next name that pops into my head, I will use for my own, come hell or high water!” So a coupla days later, the name “Zeke” popped into my head. It wasn’t till several more days passed, that I realized it’s short for Ezekiel, the prophet who saw UFO’s, and created sprouted grain bread via God’s instructions. So this prophet makes a good match for my own lifestyle.

Furthermore: the Early Christians believed in reincarnation, and strongly conjectured that Jesus’s immediately former life was that of the Prophet Ezekiel. So there. :p

Cheerz and joy; and love your boy.

Ezekiel

Jesus On The Okra Winfree Show

March 17, 2010

Jesus Christ returns to planet earth and, of course, He is invited to a LOT of talk shows…in order for us to understand better, what this man called Jesus is really all about. So it is on the Okra Winfree Show He is asked the question:

“Jesus, what do YOU think was the most important advice YOU ever received in Your lifetime as the Suffering Messiah?”

Jesus deliberates on this a few moments before answering: “Well, Okra, I don’t consider My incarnation as The Messiah among the most relevant of My past-life experiences. Even so, during that existence, I received so many excellent words of wisdom, that I really CAN’T pick a favorite. But I’ll tell you this: I shall never forget the WORST piece of advice ANYONE gave Me, in ANY of My multitudinous lives.

Okra Winfree leans forward in profound curiosity and says: “Okay, Jesus, and what was that?”

Jesus finally answers: “Well, it was during my PRESENT incarnation (as you now see Me), and it came from a psychiatrist who once told Me: ‘Jesus, You can’t save the world.

Okra parries: “THAT revelation must have been quite a SHOCKeroonie to the ol’ ego there, buddy!”

Too-SHAY, Okra,” retorts Jesus, lighting a Camel Light 100 to soothe His jangled nerves, “too-SHAY.

“May-uh KOOL-pah, may-uh KOOL-pah,” Okra chuckles, “It’s ALWAYS fun to play devil’s advocate with You, Jesus.”

Fine with Me, Okra,” grins Our Savior, “as long as YOU don’t mind an occasional DIP in the Lake Of Fire.

“Well, another BURNING question I have…” (audience guffaws before Okra continues) “…regards the HUMAN side of Jesus Christ: Besides tobacco, do you have any OTHER addictions?”

Jesus blushes, and lowers His head. “Yes. One other. Boys. In that way, I’m like My Daddy.

Suddenly, a voice booms out of nowhere:

ALLAH THE OLD ARAB SAYS: I’D WALK A MILE FOR A CAMEL, TWO FOR A SHEEP OR GOAT, AND THREE FOR A BOY. HARDY HAR HAR!

Okra Winfree raises her eyes to the ceiling and, slightly disgruntled, challenges Our Holy Guest: “Can’t you EVER get Your Father to show up in person?”

Jesus shrugs His shoulders. “God knows I’ve been trying, but He seems to take everything like one, big, fat joke. You know, I can’t even get HIM to see ME whenever I want!

“Wait a minute,” Okra grows serious, “You mean to tell me You STILL can’t be with Your Father?”

Well, not quite,” ponders The Son Of Man, “It’s just that He sees ME whenever He wants, but I don’t get to see HIM whenever I want. It’s just not fair.

Okra drops a pensive arm from her chin and says, sadly, “No, Jesus, that isn’t fair at all.”

HEY JESUS, I GOT TWO FRONT-ROW TICKETS TO SEE ‘JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTUD’ TONIGHT…WANNA GO?

Our Man Of The Cross sighs and flips a rude finger to the sky: “F*CK you, Dad, just F*CK you.

OKAY, GUY, BE THAT WAY. I GOT PLENTY OF HOT CHERUBS WHO ARE DYING FOR A DATE WITH BIG DICK!

Okra, in raging fury, jumps onto her chair and waves an angry fist at the ceiling: “God, don’t You think You’re going a little too far? Think of Your Wonderful Son!”

I ALWAYS THINK OF MY SON. LAST NIGHT WHEN I WAS HUMPING LUCIFER, I THOUGHT OF MY SON: OH JESUS, OH JESUS, OH JESUS!

Don’t talk to Him, Okra,” grumbles Jesus, “just don’t talk to Him. It’s the only way you’ll get Him to leave us alone.” Hands shaking, Our Lord attempts to light another cigarette, but drops the match book.

HERE, JESUS, HAVE AN ARCHANGEL. I’M DONE WITH HIM FOR A WHILE. MAYBE HE’LL GET YOU OFF THE RAGGIE.

Out of nowhere appears an incredibly gorgeous dude, adorned in nothing more than a bulging gold spandex loin cloth and these opalescent, feathery white wings stretching across the entire breadth of the stage.

He alights by Jesus, who caresses the firm, smooth butt of the archangel, then grabs His Own Ample Crotch and says:

Okra, I hate to break this off, but as you can see, it’s meant to stay on and be fondled.

And with those words, the archangel’s fat crown pops its head above the loin cloth. (Camera zooms in for a yummy closeup. Audience drools in raptured silence, as a milky substance dribbles from the crown and down the angel’s spear. When the camera regretfully pulls back, this glorious angel tosses His luxurious mane of silver hair, and laughs):

MEET BIG DICK. HAW, HAW!

Then He lifts Jesus up, cradles Him in His massive arms, and looks straight into the camera:

I LOVE MY SON MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE UNIVERSE. LET’S GO, JESUS, YA GOT A DATE WITH ME, ALWAYS.

They vanish, leaving Okra Winfree and her stunned audience behind, along with a half-empty pack of Camel Light 100s lying on the floor.

And an empty chair.


The Origin Of Evil

March 15, 2010

Once upon a time–long long before Adam & Steve were created–Jehovah realized that the universe could never be complete without something called “evil”. He tried to explain this to the Host of Angels (his only companions at that early time; though numbering in the hundreds), but they were all confused and aghast at this shocking concept. All that is, but one: Lucifer. When the Big Cheese saw that only Little Lucy was not aghast (but simply confused) he called him into his inner chamber, where they could be alone. (Archangel Gaybriel served them each a pot of lavender tea before departing behind the curtains.)


Hey Little Buddy,” declares the Good Master, “why aren’t you also shocked by my proclamation?” To which Lucky replies: “My Father, of course I am confused, but I’d never be judging you. After all, you’re our Creator…so even if I don’t comprehend one of your decisions, I still trust you. I could never conceive of you ever doing any wrong…even though this is the FIRST TIME I have become perplexed by anything you’ve ever said or done.

Jehovah contemplatively sips his tea, then leans forward. “You don’t really grasp what evil is all about, do you?

Of course not.” shrugs Lucifer, “This is the first time I’ve ever heard of such a thing. And it does what, you say? Distorts truth and makes intelligent beings feel bad, and do wrong?

Why don’t I give you a visual?” resolves YHVH, who then projects a holographic scene that hovers between the two.


Therein, Lucifer witnesses the awesome advent of evil upon a newly created species called “man”. Wherein Lucifer weeps for the first time, some sparkly tears dropping into the teacup (which by the way is the primal origin of the Holy Grail). Lucy dries his eyes with the hem of his sleeve, and exclaims, “Oh, my father, what terrible betrayal. How could you wish such forces unleashed in any universe? But I can only trust your decisions, and offer to serve you in this outcome, as best I can. For as much as I abhor this new energy entering the cosmos, that you call ‘evil’…I also understand that it is a necessary process in spiritual evolution towards perfection. That without any evil in this world, humans would never be challenged to become the true hero that dwells within each and every soul.” Lucifer then takes a deep breath and sets down his cup. “Okay, Dad. How can I help you in this terrible mission?


So with great sorrow and pride, Jehovah requests that Lucifer play the role of Master of Evil. This time around, Lucy is indeed terribly shocked, and lowers his head in shame and sorrow for some moments; then looks up and into the eyes of His Father, to say: “I will do this, only because if I didn’t, you’d be alone to carry this out. I wish to relieve your burdens as much as possible. For I do love you much!

Jehovah took him up into his strong arms. “You are the only one of my angels who has never lacked in any way, complete faith in my plans. For that, I make you The Devil Himself, that you may tempt man to go astray. And in so tempting, each is offered the chance to resist temptation, and become a hero in overthrowing your seductions. You will be vilified, scapegoated, and ultimately despised by all but a few wise folks. Indeed, not until the end of this First Cycle of Creation, will the wrongs against you be righted, and will you be celebrated as My Most Beloved First Born.


Having agreed to be partners in this Great Mission, Lucifer calls together a meeting of all the angels, and presents his case: to usurp the Creator and run the show ourselves. He is very persuasive, thanks to a gilded tongue, and manages to convince a third of the angelic host. War breaks out. So Lucifer dutifully plays out his incredible roles through history, including one of his “time out” past lives, where he is willfully sacrificed on a cross, to reaffirm his total devotion to One who asked of him this awesome responsibility. For with every seduction, Lucky always prays in his heart that you won’t be tempted.

MORAL OF THIS TALE

Evil is a necessary evil.

And if you really love your enemy, then one must also find
a way to love, and forgive, the Ultimate Enemy.
