It’s a fact. Jesus was somehow the only Caucasian guy in the Middle East. Don’t believe it? Just look at the pictures.
Somehow, that’s not even the dumbest thing Metaxas said in a single tweet.
Metaxas was using the myth of a white Jesus to dismiss the very concept of white privilege. Because if Jesus was white, and Jesus was without sin, he couldn’t have “white privilege,” therefore racism is a hoax! CHECKMATE, EVERYONE!
If that doesn’t make sense to you… well, join the club.
Jesus Christ of Nazareth… his name was Jesus Christ of Nazareth..

I’m a sixth generation Methodist.
I’m starting to believe the UMC actually wants me to leave. This is the invitation.

Eric, have you ever seen a human from the Middle East?

Give it a while and Metaxas will likely do what he so often does: pretend it was a joke that you’re all too dumb to understand. And then he’ll talk about how he’s being “canceled” when he’s really just being criticized. And then he’ll spread more lies in defense of Trump.
All in a day’s work for a guy who thinks he’s spreading Christianity but who makes atheism look more appealing each day.
