Posted in a public place by about a review of the new Superman movie. The review puts an emphasis on the Messiah themes and images from the film.
I think this is why I have never liked Superman. He is a Jesus figure who is not really like the Jesus I prefer at all. He’s the Jesus that most dominionist Christians want- bumbling around saving people but not really relating to people at all-an alien. The Jesus I prefer is more human (but still divine).
I’ve been trying recently to hear the way people talk about their faith. This caught my attention because of that.
