While I’m not into the world’s factious beliefs that Santa Claus is the reason for Christmas and don’t buy into the pagan role that he supposedly plays in society. I also know that Santa Claus is a fictional character who can pretty much be depicted in any way imaginable. Jesus on the other hand, has been portrayed as a white figure with blue eyes and long hair since the creation of art however, I know better and that is…Jesus surely isn’t white.
Fox news anchor, Megyn Kelly, apparently believes otherwise which is why she so boldly declared that both Santa Claus and Jesus were/are white. The misinformed anchorwoman is both ignorant and oblivious; she is certainly lacking knowledge and truth concerning the Biblical scriptures when it comes to the description of my Savior.
And while many people have these fixed mental images of Jesus pushed on them, drawn from different artistic depictions, these images often conform to stereotypes which are not grounded in any serious research on the historical Jesus, but are based instead on second and third hand interpretations of spurious sources.
For the record… in the book of Revelation 1:14-16 it states:
His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
I guess it should have also dawned on Miss Kelly that race is still an incredibly volatile issue in this country and she made herself and the “powerful” channel that employs her, the victim.
On Friday, Kelly defended herself at length, saying that she had fallen victim to a bunch of “race-baiting” Fox News haters who couldn’t take a joke. Yeah right! They always want to hide behind the “it was a joke” defense, when they want to incite what some racist would like us to believe otherwise.
Fox news always want to recant their statements when they are bombarded with the backlash of their ignorant, one-sided and insensitive comments on the air.
