Re: Pineapple Je5us (Colt Brennan tribute)

Wow this topic got outta hand because of 1 dude. Insane. That's the problem with the internet. Pineapple Jesus in no way mocks Jesus or any religion. Perhaps someone should actually read the bible...

Re: Pineapple Je5us (Colt Brennan tribute)

I like to picture Pineapple Jesus in a tuxedo T-Shirt because it says I want to be formal, but I'm here to party.

Re: Pineapple Je5us (Colt Brennan tribute)

Well, since I was the one who came up with the nickname I suppose I should speak...from high above the mountaintop as I look down upon my children of this Earth (hold on let me put down these two stone tablets so I can focus)...but seriously

When I came up with the nickname, my first thought was someone is going to be offended by this I'm sure. But then I thought, why should they be. For one thing, I'm a religious (fairly religious) Christian and I didn't find it offensive. Plus, as others have said it has nothing to do with Jesus or religion, or what have you. It's about people's strong beliefs and faith, if you will, in Colt Brennan. And it's a play on the term given to Michael Jordan back in the day...Black Jesus.

Now we probably don't need to be going around calling skinsnut a moron or an idiot or whatever for his opinion. By the same token Nut, writing in big bold letters isn't going to do you any good either. And, again, I think you really misunderstood the intent of the nickname. Trust me, I'm sensitive to religious topics but this isn't one of them.

Besides, does the Bible not tell us to lighten up...Proverb 17:22-A merry heart doeth good like a medicine

And anyway, it's Je5us not Jesus

This is highly personal and offensive to me, and it is hard to ignore when I go to this site daily and I see a thread dedicated to a new icon mocking Jesus' name as well as his crucifixion ....where else have you seen a crown of thorns?....and...by the way...I still don't get it....why is Colt supposedly Jesus anyways...is his a born again christian or something....if so....we are certainly mocking his beliefs....why not just talk about football and leave religion alone...it is just way too personal?

I just dont get the point of a thread like this. I would love for someone to just appease me and lock it down for the respect of me and possibly many others

Calm down, Mark. While you had a couple of good games, you really did ruin Gibbs' second stint here.

Anyway, you are definitely taking this a little too seriously and I would be more offended if the moderators get in the business of censorship because people refuse to "change the channel".

I don't think anyone is mocking Jesus at all. I am a Christian, too btw.

i am a christian. i accepted jesus at the age of 22 (i'm 35 now) and while i am not personally offended by this pineapple jesus stuff (i realize people are just joking around) i do see why some could be offended. just besause someone says they're offended shouldn't be a reason to bash them the way some of you have done. can't you just say "sorry your offended" then just move on.

Although I take no offense to this thread at all, I agree.

Re: Pineapple Je5us (Colt Brennan tribute)

Look Schneed is schneed, he is gonna call out someone when he sees fit. I agree with what he said to(it is kinda stupid to get all riled up over a joke, especially it's lake of intent).

Could it have been told a different way? Probably.

Re: Pineapple Je5us (Colt Brennan tribute)

Hey folks, I woke up to a wonderous bashing....did I express my offense without error? No...however,

I will never back down at the defense of the name of Jesus....if you need to let the hate out....I am your target....pile on!

I do appreciate the constructive feedback about how to block avatars so I don't see this image as well as the explaination of intent. I know the intent was not intentional, but it still is offensive. I was offended at the Michael Jordon Black Jesus references too by the way....I never said anything then...but to up the ante and throw a crown of thorns on it was a bit too much for me....especially if someone is suggesting making a profit by it by selling t-shirts too.

I don't expect anyone to neccessarily agree with me, I was expecting a more respectful response...not for my sake, for I know how some of you feel about me now...but for the name of Jesus itself.

not everyone sees it as a joke and to bash them for that is nonsense.

I'm reminded of this... Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and I can't help but laugh.

Maybe we could sell shirts without the thorn. Seriously though, the intent was not to offend you and I apologize for that.

As for Schneed being Schneed. Honestly, I think Schneed could have and should have been more respectful. And I think the rest of the board has to stop encouraging him to be an asshole whenever he pleases. That's really on the mods I think.

Not sure what type of reaction you were expecting skinsnut, you came in here guns blazing demanding the thread be closed.

If you had opened the debate in a calm and respectful manner, the following discussion may have followed suit. Instead you kicked the door in and to hear that you are surprised by the reactions is somewhat comical.

By the way we're not profiting at all from the shirts. We never have, not when we sold Sean Taylor tribute shirts or anything else.

The intent of all of this was to just have a little fun. If you disagree and don't want to participate that's fine. But we're not closing any threads and not changing any images.

I agree. As for Schneed being Schneed, I believe others have been banned for just being themselves when being themselves became inappropriate. I've probably caught a couple of breaks from the administrator myself so I'm not going to complain. Skinsnut has a right to his opinion, but he does not control this board. Still, I don't understand the level of anger being expressed toward him. Personally, some of the idiotic "insights" of what's wrong with the Redskins has offended me more and been more deserving of "wrath" than anything Skinsnut has said. I personally have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, and look at "Pineapple Je5us" as more of a comment on Colt Brennan and his faithful followers who believe he is the salvation of this franchise than as disrespect to Jesus Christ. If it offends you Skinsnut, perhaps, "Forgive them Father for they know not what they do" would be appropriate here. Or maybe understanding the intent of calling a 3rd string QB Pineapple Je5us. I see no reason to be offended nor am I looking for one. Training camp is here. Hail Redskins!
