'Hunky Jesus' Contest in San Francisco Mocks Christianity on Easter Sunday, but Don't Look for 'Hunky Muhammad' Contest Anytime Soon

CHICAGO, April 21, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- This Easter Sunday in San Francisco's Delores Park, Christianity-spoofing homosexual drag queen "nuns" calling themselves the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" will stage their annual "Hunky Jesus" contest -- mocking the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ -- as shirtless men in "crucifixion" costumes parade on stage in an atmosphere of haughty, homoerotic humor.
The profane and shockingly insensitive spectacle illustrates the secular, pro-"gay" Left's hypocrisy in demanding "respect" for homosexuals and transsexuals -- even as they cynically mock Christ and true religion on the holiest day of the year for Christians, says Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH).
"There's nothing that delights arrogant, pro-homosexual liberals more than making fun of Bible-believing Christians -- as evidenced by this blasphemous Easter 'contest,'" LaBarbera said. "Of course, it goes without saying that these defiant champions of 'tolerance and diversity' wouldn't dare hold a 'Hunky Muhammad' contest during Ramadan -- so it seems even envelope-pushing, in-your-face, pro-perversion libertines know their limits. (Muslims: beware: LGBT activists will end up hating you as much as they hate Christians.)"
LaBarbera said the "Hunky Jesus" contest [watch YouTube HERE] symbolizes the contempt that many homosexual militants have for God and religion. Politically this translates into their growing advocacy of pro-homosexuality laws that use State power to crush Americans' historic religious and First Amendment liberties -- i.e., to reject homosexuality and other immoral, destructive behaviors.
"Gay activists are out of the closet in their plans to criminalize Christianity insofar as it relates to their particular politically-correct sin," he said, "One way they do that is by reviling and ridiculing committed Christians and others who oppose homosexuality -- portraying them as sociopaths and the heartless equivalent of deranged racists. But the fact that African-Americans now poll strongest against 'same-sex marriage' throws a wrench into this evil 'frame.'"
LaBarbera said the "Hunky Jesus" contest -- despicable as it is -- actually is less threatening to Christendom than the escalating campaign by LGBT activists to re-define Christianity and other religions as "gay-friendly."
"Homosexual political groups are strategizing on how best to persuade evangelicals that supporting pro-homosexuality-laws including 'same-sex marriage' is part of the Christian's duty to 'love thy neighbor,'" he said. "Who knew that creating a system of superior legal 'rights' based on a sin that God's own Word, the Bible, says is 'detestable' was part of the divine plan?!
"Truth is, the most compassionate thing a Christian can do for people practicing homosexuality is to reach out to them with the Gospel -- with an uncompromising 'tough love' that says proud homosexuality is never part of God's plan for anyone's life. The same Jesus Christ whom the San Francisco liberals mock not only will judge them one day -- but He has helped countless men and women -- like Trace McNutt and Denise Jones -- leave homosexuality behind."
