The right-wing and evangelical Christian sites are all lit up with the news that a BLM activist has declared that statues of white Jesus should be torn down. Cool your jets, people!
- The statement is from Shaun King, the shameless self-promoter and grifter. He’s just found a new way to inject himself into the discourse.
- If it’s a Jesus statue on government land, of course it should be torn down, because that’s a violation of church and state separation.
- If it’s in a church or on private property, leave it alone. You can go ahead and build a shrine to Robert E. Lee in your home, it’s only a problem if it’s on public land and represents a government endorsement of religion (or white supremacy).
I’m an atheist and no friend of Jesus, and I don’t see the point of this fake news.
