Ah, but you're describing what jesus would have been really like, not the western conservative christian imagining of him. They would have hated the "real" jesus, so they imagined a jesus who suited their agenda better. A jesus who was whiter than white, who hated gays, abortion and to them probably speaks with an American accent.

I think jesus is imagined into any number of guises and cultures. But notice the most important word, imagined.
