Of course, the author’s “freedom-loving, justice-seeking, potentially queer (because he was either asexual or a priest married to a prostitute), feminist healer” is just as made-up and unbiblical as a “white supremacist Jesus”.

Don’t care if you don’t think its biblical. In a way, I don’t care if its not. Besides, “he” is a women.

Don’t care if you don’t care, it doesn’t depend on your opinion.

In a way, I don’t care if its not.

So why the downding and the assholish response?

Besides, “he” is a women.

Apparently you have reading/comprehension problems, because nowhere have I called the author “he”.

Indeed. Moreover, Brittney Cooper really does not address the title of the title of the article; She does not articulate any part of the theology that would explain “How bigots invented a white supremacist Jesus “. She simply states for a fact what the value of the ‘right-wing Jesus’ are. Nor does she make the case for her vision of Jesus. Again, she only states it and doesn’t back it up.

The result is more preaching to the choir. Ms. Coopers words will not convince anyone who does not already hold liberal views. The shame here is that Ms. Cooper’s timing was very good, and some right-of-center religious concepts do need examination and revision. But she doesn’t do any examining, engaging in simple excoriation instead. What’s left is a standard-issue article written for a liberal audience that could have been more than that.

Both liberal and conservative Christians cherrypick the Jesus verses that they like, ignoring the ones they don’t. Given the contradictory messages in the gospels, it is questionable whether there can even be one consistent picture of Jesus’ teachings.

There are those who will twist a religion any way they need to support their bigotry. And of course, there are those willing to buy into these twisted interpretations. And as far as I can tell, that applies to any religion.

Of course all variants of Christianity are fantasy, but at least modern Christianity encourages people to treat others well. Regressive Republican Christianity makes people worse than they’d be without superstition.

Sorry I got a bit confused by the way you wrote it than.
