Kittredge Cherry writes about her new book “The Passion of Christ: a Gay Vision” which is based on the controversial paintings of New York artist Doug Blanchard in the HuffingtonPost. Blanchard re-imagines Christ’s passion set in the 21st century with Jesus as a Gay man. Cherry, a Lesbian Christian author and art historian, writes that:
“LGBT Christian visions are important now because conservatives are using religion to justify discrimination against queer people. Whenever anyone commits violence against another, Christ is crucified again — including when LGBT people are attacked or killed because of who they are”.
