While it is possible that the above post was whimsically-intended (I do try to keep a good sense of humor on this site), I'd have to say that I find this particular exclamation deeply offensive. I don't understand the mindset of someone who takes a thing that is precious and sacred to others and profanes it in this way. Take it from me; among those who honor the name of Jesus, this particular combination of terms is the written equivalent to a slap in the face. I have come to expect a higher level of maturity from the PerlMonks community.
Admittedly, there are alternative (pun intended) uses for the word 'gay' and certainly Jesus was not the only person who is claimed to be a 'christ', but the casual intent to defile seems evident in this post.
I don't really have a problem with 'galloping', although it seems likely to be historically inaccurate. :)
Whatever your meta-ethical viewpoint (or lack thereof) it seems to me that a small amount of decency and respect for others would go a long way in terms of refraining from posts like this.
