BLACK LEFTIST RUTGERS PROFESSOR: Says God of Conservatives Is An “A**hole” and a God of “White Supremacy and Patriarchy”

If Jesus isn’t actually the leftist hippie that they claim he is, I think he is going to have some issues with this prof’s claims about himself.

“That means these people don’t represent any kind of Christianity that looks anything like the kind that I practice…This white, blond-haired, blue-eyed, gun-toting, Bible-quoting Jesus of the religious right is a god of their own making. I call this god, the god of white supremacy and patriarchy…This God isn’t the God that I serve…He might be ‘biblical’ but he’s also an asshole.”
