Ivy League professor calls God a 'racist' after Zimmerman verdict
FoxNews.com ^ | 7/16/2013

Posted on 07/17/2013 4:36:05 AM PDT by RoosterRedux

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.

God must be some kind of comedian to make this person an associate professor at an university.

It just goes to prove what idiots these Ivy league colleges hire.

None of us know much about God I suppose but we can all tell a black racist when we hear one.

This is an example of what is teaching America’s youth.

God is. He is not this or that, he just IS.
You consider reproduction a right. Maybe God considers it a responsibility. Maybe you should consider that in your studies.

***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.****

Well yes from your ranting we know where you are at also. You are an extreme black racist........

(from the article) ~"“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. "

I am willing to bet that God may rebuke her !!
are we not ,"all his children" ?
Teaches in the Deparment of Reigious studies : I think she needs to study more, and get her head out of her butt , and see the light
before the only light she sees is a colonoscopy camera
which has stensiled across the top: " SMILE" !!

SOCIALISM is like a colonoscopy without medication or a lubricant
You can't wait until it's over !!
and you never forget !!

It is democrat party policy that is stalking young black men.

Destroy the family and thereby make the family wholly dependent upon government to survive. Of course they will vote democrat, it puts food on the table. It is a form of slavery.

And on another source here is a different picture of Butler:

So she rants about abortion first... and then on to blame a white, racist god with a small case “g”. A religious studies prof that hates God and worships at the satanic, child sacrificial alter of abortion. I’m not shocked but she will be when she stands before a righteous, holy God in judgement.

Thx for that. Below are the three comments from the source you gave on this fine professor. Hilarious...
Pathetic. This teacher is pathetically bad at her supposed job. Do not give this untalented instructor any more classes. Bad.

[I]ts an embarassment to the RS department that this loudmouth idiot with crazy Don King hair is the head chair. Worst Professor ive ever known or heard of. her opinions are poorly substantiated and academically unsound to say the least mostly due to her afrocentric presuppositional bias which makes her narrow-minded.Avoid her at all cost!

She is an awful teacher who thinks that she knows everything when half of the time she is making mistakes in the names of the things she is trying to teach! I'm a student and even I can see her mistakes! She takes herself way too seriously, and her TAs are awful! Her and her TAs are very harsh graders, beware!

“Huh? Some very educated people are very stupid.” Where in the world did you get the idea that she could possibly be “very educated.” You can get a doctoral degree in hip-hop from an “Ivy League” university and the right to call yourself doctor. That does no make you even marginally educated. Titles no longer have any meaning: “doctor,” “reverend,” “emperor,” and even “pope” mean nothing. For years the TV show “Amos and Andy” was virtually banned because it was thought it portrayed blacks in an unfavorable light. Anthea Butler should be an embarrassment. I would like to remind her once again that she is not a white man. Get rid of the Harpo Marks wig. Yours Truly, The Pope of Hoboken

Again, I am offended by the fact that them “Professor” applies to these idiots. Marshmallow minds in marshmallow departments should wear other titles...perhaps something like “Got it in a box of Cheerios,” or “Couldn’t pass Elimentary Algebra”.

Face it, it appears that a sizeable percentage of lib arts department faculty couldn’t qualify for a McDonalds job were this 1965.

So the intelligent Master Creator of the Universe who designed all the various peoples of planet earth is now labeled a ‘racist’? Best not paint the Almighty into a narrow minded leftist brain where He certainly is not welcomed nor does He belong.
