I noticed that the Stallman hat looks like Jesus. Why is that?

As for the actual hat, and not the
potential resemblance of Jesus, Stallman is actually a pretty cool guy. He is most known for his work with the GNU project,
"The GNU Project is a free software, mass collaboration project, announced on 27 September 1983, by Richard Stallman at MIT. Its aim is to give computer users freedom and control in their use of their computers and computing devices, by collaboratively developing and providing software that is based on the following freedom rights: users are free to run the software, share it (copy, distribute), study it and modify it"
The emphasis is probably why he is the hat reward for CW editing.
Strictly-speaking, we don't know what Jesus looked like.
We do, however, know what Richard Stallman looks like. And he has a pretty groovy head of hair.
It is possible that Richard Stallman looks like Jesus. He is, after all, the Savior of Software.
According to religionfacts.com "Jesus first appears with a beard in the late 4th century (and then not consistently)"
So, perhaps to put it more accurately, Stallman looks like a guy with long hair and a beard and at some points in history Jesus was depicted with long hair and a beard...

Christ as Teacher, Junius Bassus Tomb c.360
Of course that is Saint IGNUcious and not Jesus!
