"One thing I'll say for him: Jesus is cool."
— Caiaphas, Jesus Christ Superstar
Jesus is just all right with me!
Jesus is just all right, oh yeah!
— Doobie Brothers, Jesus Is Just All Right
Well, I bet he'd be cool
I bet He be damn good looking
I bet that He smelt divine

How do humanists feel about Jesus? I say of Jesus, as all humanists do. "If what he said is good, and so much of it is absolutely beautiful, what does it matter if he was God or not?"
But if Christ hadn't delivered the Sermon on the Mount, with its message of mercy and pity, I wouldn't want to be a human being. I'd just as soon be a rattlesnake.
"But before you fix your mouth and try to come with a retort, please be advised that Jesus never took a plea in court.
And he never had a plane,
And he never had a car,
And he never had a church that was visited by stars,
But he did have love for the poor and the thieves and he was in the street, kind of similar to me, nigga."
—Killer Mike, That's Life Part 2
