Why do Christians worship Cesare Borgia's image as Jesus?

1492 goes down as the year that the entire planet was hoodwinked by the Roman Catholic Church.

During Alexander VI's term the Christians were fighting the Holy Crusades against the so called infidels. The enemy that the church was fighting was the northward movement of Islam as far up into Europe as Germany. These Middle Eastern Islamics took control of Constantinopole in Turkey and threatened the stronghold that the Roman Empire and in turn the church had on the world at the time. Pope Alexander used the age old tactic of discrediting an opponent to weaken his position. One major obstacle that faced Alexander and the church was the fact that Jesus, who their entire religion was based on was physically the same as the Islamics that they were fighting against. He was represented in all paintings, carvings and sculptures as the dark skinned man of Middle Eastern origin that he was. Nazareth certainly was in the Middle Eastern area that later came under the influence of Islam. How could they possibly convince their constituency of the wickedness of the enemy when their own messiah looked like them? Although the original Christians were certainly Middle Eastern people of color, by the time Alexander ascended to the papacy, Europeans had long taken control of the church. Pope Alexander VI's solution was to have every image of the real Jesus destroyed and literally had the Vatican gutted and redone. He commissioned Leonardo Di Vinci to recast Jesus in the image of his son Cesare Borgia with the express intent of passing off historical Jesus as European in appearance. To this day, there are armed guards stationed around the clock at the entrances of the catacombs to keep anyone from viewing the original wall carvings of Jesus in his legitimate ethnic representation.

Don't Christians realize that the images they have in their chuches and homes are portraits of Cesare Borgia?

Update 2: Far as I know, every church has a picture of Cesare Borgia in it and is claimed to be both Jesus and God by the Christians.

Since its a known fact that that picture is of a man, why hasn't it been removed?

Strange....

Exodus 20:4 (English Standard Version)

4 "You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth."

Now I understand your points that Jesus' picture (aka Cesare Borgia) may not necessarily be worshipped by [most] Christians (I wonder about the converts in Africa though). But, considering this is definitely a picture of a man, should it not be removed? Especially in light of the verse in Exodus 20:4?
