Salt Lake City, UT—Body positive group known as “Fatter-day Saints” is putting weight on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to feature obese portraits of Jesus in Church owned meeting houses.
“People should feel safe when they enter our meeting houses,” said President of Body Positive Utah. “People aren’t safe in Church buildings that only portray skinny Jesus hanging in the foyer.”
Body Positive Utah points to Isaiah 7:15 as evidence that Jesus was obese. It states, “Butter and honey he will eat.”
