In an act of unprecedented sacrilege, Funky Jesus gives the devil horns as he's crowned Hunky Jesus 2012.
Bonnets and bunny ears were among the various kinky and religion-bending outfits and accessories populating Dolores Park on Sunday as the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence led hundreds through a San Francisco-style Easter celebration, but it was Funky Jesus -- playing a cross-shaped guitar -- who won top honors. He was crowned Hunky Jesus 2012 in a contest that marked the order's 33rd birthday.

During the full day of events, champagne bottles were uncorked at every turn and the smell of marijuana filled the air. The Red Hots Burlesque started the celebration, which also included a contest for the most elaborately decorated bonnet.

Funky Jesus knows how to rock.
Funky Jesus benefited from what might have been divine intervention, as the first part of the contest -- the day's main event -- suffered a sound-system crisis (as in, for while there was no sound except for the people in the audience yelling "We can't hear you!"). It was restored in time for him to play his guitar. Among other sons of God in the contest were Kinky Jesus and Lebowski Jesus.

All in all it was a typical San Francisco Easter, a good time was had by many. We can't wait for next year. Thanks, Sisters.

I am from the alternative community and I couldn't agree more.  Very well said.

How about a hunky Mohammed...oh, no, that would never happen from the brave people in the alternative community.  Too cowardly to take on the real haters.

"The real haters"? You're a racist dumbass, Federale. There are Christian terrorists too.

What Christian terrorists?  9/11, London Tube Bombings, Ft. Hood Shooter, Arkansas Recruiter Shooting, Madrid Train Bombings, etc.  All Muslims.  And dumbass, Islam is not a race, it is a religion.  You all are just cowards, afraid to ridicule Mohammed because you know that the Muslims will kill you.

So you attack Jesus Christ, thinking you are hip, trendy and brave.  But you are just the typical Stalinist haters.  Remember it ain't original to attack Christianity, people have been doing that for 2,000 years.  Especially your friends, Pol Pot, Mao Tse-t'ung and Joseph Stalin.

Completely unfair.   Gays in America face incredible amounts of hate  - and violence - from our lovely majority Christians.   Until you stand in those shoes and face that, you should shut your mouth.  You are free of course to go live in Baghdad and protest Mohammed all you want.

LOL, what hate and violence?  None exists.  The real haters are the homosexuals, who hate Christians.  Even when Muslims are murdering homosexuals by the thousands.  You should go to Iraq, Iran or Saudi Arabia.  See how far the rainbow flag gets you.
