The Christ image as surreptitious porn for women


The image of Jesus in 21st-Century American Christian home decor looks a bit like pornography for women.

He's beautiful, he's perfect, and he loves you no matter what. His body is immaculate (it's part of the creed,) and his face gentle and manly. And, again, he just loves you. He doesn't want you.

You don't want him, either, of course — that's what makes it porn. It's an ideal, a spark, something to incite the imagination.

And the husband's not going to say anything about it. It's Jesus.
