John 11.35: Jesus Wept
Now you can call Jesus a sissy over this one if you want, but this is the man who did not run away when the soldiers came for him, he stood in front of Pilot, was mocked, had a crown of thorns put on his head,was beaten and whipped within an inch of his life, and made to carry his cross to the point of execution, nailed to it and hung there for hours until eventually he was stabbed through the side with a spear.
Jesus didn't cry about this though, he had cried earlier when he learned that his Friend Lazarus had died.
I think this demonstrates that "real men" do cry. (even if Jesus wasn't a real man, the lesson is still the same)
