You may get offended by this, if you even read it, but I have to say that I really do like the idea of the Buddy Jesus. It strikes me that if Jesus was an X-Gamer, hanging with Tony Hawk, and watching Bam Magera on Viva la Bam, that this would be the guy you'd meet. he's not some stuffy over bearing guy who disapproves of you being different, and he's not some latin speaking pontif. he's a 30 something guy trying to relate to people his age to get his message out.
He's your buddy, Jesus.
Are you offended by that? Why? Jesus can be your buddy too.
