Lunatic Ivy League professor calls God a 'racist' after Zimmerman verdict




An Ivy League professor blogged after George Zimmerman was found not guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin that the verdict shows God is a “white racist” who stalks “young black men.”

Anthea Butler, an associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania's Department of Religious Studies, made the unusual comments in a blog post released on Monday on ReligionDispatches.org, where she is a regular contributor.

“God ain’t good all of the time. In fact, sometimes, God is not for us,” she wrote in the post. “As a black woman in an [sic] nation that has taken too many pains to remind me that I am not a white man, and am not capable of taking care of my reproductive rights, or my voting rights, I know that this American god ain’t my god.

“As a matter of fact, I think he’s a white racist god with a problem. More importantly, he is carrying a gun and stalking young black men,” she added.

Butler adds that Trayvon Martin’s killing was the result of racism that was influenced by Christianity.

“As a historian of American and African-American religion, I know that the Trayvon Martin moment is just one moment in a history of racism in America that, in large part, has its underpinnings in Christianity and its history,” she wrote. “Those of us who teach American Religion have a responsibility to tell all of the story, not just the nice touchy-feely parts.”

“When the good Christians of America are some of its biggest racists, one has to consider our moral responsibility to call out those who clearly are not for human flourishing, no matter what ethnicity a person is. Where are you on that scale? I know where I am.”

According to her biography, Butler holds doctorate and masters degrees in religion from Vanderbilt University as well as a masters in theology from Fuller Theological Seminary. She is the author of a 2007 book titled "Women in the Church of God in Christ, Making A Sanctified World," published by University of North Carolina Press.

Butler, who did not respond to requests for comment, is also an associate chair for the school's religious studies department and is a regular contributor and guest on both MSNBC and CNN.

Okay, so 12160 is on the side of the racists? So now you go after college professors? I guess I'll stick with websites that are actually run by college professors instead of ones overseen by highschool dropouts or racewar chickenhawks. So it's open season on people of color under the rubric of "Stand your ground" and I guess you people are cool with that?

Doug,

Do you support this comment: verdict shows God is a “white racist” who stalks “young black men.” ?

Or is it that, she is a BLK professor, and as such, beyond reproach?

Just trying to understand.

Some folks seem to think they can dictate what 100s of regular bloggers here should cover.

Start your own site and run it any  way you like or stfu I say.

James μολὼν λαβέ  I think this Lady is suffering from Cognitive dissonance and very well may have a preferred God, based on her perception of a heavenly race war?

I support her 1st Amendment right, not to call for her arrest, as she does of others!

She is laughable at best. If this phony and the other race hustlers cared about this problem they would be looking at themselves and asking why so many black people murder other black people. Figure out this cultural dilemma and it might stop(at least slow down) a bit.
