All in all Homer was not that impressed with 'The Bible' series on the History Channel.
Only watched a few episodes myself. The reenactment of the Jews being conquered and taken to Babylon as slaves was good and how Daniel ended up being able to return them back to their homeland.

And I know Jesus is often depicted as Caucasian, blue-eyed, mild-mannered and a cool kind of guy.

But that bothers me, so I only saw a few clips of the New Testament part of the series.

It'd be like depicting MLK as Hispanic. There's no reason to do that. Same with not depicting Jesus as a Jew.

<quoted text> Somehow such simple concepts fly over your heads like birds flying south for the winter! I said as I chose because I am an individual, meaning I do what I want regardless of the consequences. My parents were great parents, but a beating, grounding, or confiscating my toys couldn't make me do or not do anything. Infact often makes things worse. You all are confusing disappointment & respect with fear. All 3 have their own meanings & like I said,"there is no room for fear in a heart full of love!
Well that explains why you're a liberal who only cares about what you want.

Hope you didn't resort to calling your poor parents names when they tried to instill some common sense into your "it's all about me" mentality too.

Yeah, um, but I'd like you to be more specific now too. what, exactly, and this requires a complete understanding of federal policy, is he not doing to your satisfaction and try and avoid the sort of broad, sweeping language you people prefer. Too many vacations? Too much golf? What, exactly, are you talking about?

But-but-but keep your fingers crossed Homer because N Korea did have that one rocket which made it the entire 75 miles to outer space.

Speaking of N Korea did you happen to see that little Busby Berkeley routine that the Generals do after young-Un gives them a pep talk?

In the printed material that the JW's leave in my mail box Jesus looks like the young Barry Gibb.

Get over it Homer, that's reality.
And quit your LYING. You feralbrains-ALL of you can claim notoriety for LYING.
PROOF-Ask a feralbrain for road directions. It will LIE and tell you it knows exactly where it's going. Ask a feralbrain for the 411 when it does know precise measurement from point A to B, and it will LIE via ommission, and act like it doesn't.
The nature of feralbrains.
Three second vacouus rule every ten minutes or so...the wind just rustles through and they regurgitate any ol bullchit. See: your LYING arse duhmmy meth parrotbrain squawk and regurgitation feralbrain comment.
