    Why the debate on the color of jesus?

    Why is it such a debate on the color of jesus? Does it really matter what color he is and what he looks like? Why do you believe that was put in the bible? Would you worship him less if he was opposite the color to suspected him to be?

    No, it does not matter what Jesus looked liked!  I wouldn't care, personally.

    This debate was not necessarily sparked by any real discussion of what ethnicity Jesus would have been (assuming, of course, that he was a real person, the answer is "very Middle Eastern and very, very Jewish," by the way), but rather by the fact that every movie that depicts him depicts him as a lily-white guy. And extremely handsome. A Hunky White Jesus, if you will.

    It's not a debate on what the Bible says--it's a debate on "Why the hell is he always a white guy in the movies?!"
