Family Research Council Executive Vice President Jerry Boykin spoke at a Men's Prayer Breakfast at William Jessup University in Rocklin, CA a few months ago and claimed that Jesus Christ was being feminized by churches when he was really a "man's man."
According to RightWingWatch.org, Boykin said that Jesus had “big, bulging biceps, big ole veins popping out of his arms,” even though that is never mentioned in the Bible (video below).
During his speech on his "4 P's of Biblical Manhood," Boykin declared that Jesus had huge muscles because he worked as a carpenter.
Boykin claimed that Jesus had to carry trees down a mountain into the village of Nazareth and was also lifting stones.
“What do you think he looked like?" said Boykin. "Do you think he looked like the effeminate picture that we always see of him? He didn’t look like that. He had big ole calluses over his hands, right? I imagine he probably lost a nail or two, maybe hit it with a hammer or something.”
“You think his biceps weren’t big bulging biceps?" added Boykin. "Big ole veins popping out of his arms, thin waist, strong shoulders from lifting? He smelled bad! Why? Because he sweated, he worked. You think I’m sacrilegious because I said Jesus smelled bad? No, he was a man! He was a man’s man.”
Boykin then complained that some churches were "feminizing" his "tough guy" image of Jesus.
“He was a tough guy, and that’s the Jesus I want to be like,” claimed Boykin. “But we feminize Jesus in the church and men can’t identify with him anymore, not the kind of men I want to hang out with. They can’t identify with this effeminate Jesus that we’ve tried to portray.”
While Jesus was a carpenter, there is no Biblical back up for Boykin's claims.
Revelation 1:13-15 describes Jesus in heaven:
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.
Earlier this month, Boykin told the conspiracy website World Net Daily that there were members of the U.S. military who wanted to "take out" President Obama.
"People I've spoken to would like to see the military fulfill their constitutional duty and take out the president," said Boykin. "Our Constitution puts a civilian in charge of the military and as a result a coup would not be constitutional. You're not going to see a coup in the military. I talk to a lot of folks who don't support where Obama is taking the military, but in the military they can't say anything."
Boykin also has a history of slamming gays, reports GoodAsYou.org.
