Irate Ivy League professor calls God Ďa white racist godí after Zimmerman verdict
Daily Caller ^ | 07/16/2013 | Eric Owens

In light of a Florida jury verdict finding George Zimmerman not guilty, a professor at an Ivy League university has now concluded that God is “a white racist god with a problem” who “is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.”

The fulmination is part of an epic blog rant by Anthea Butler, an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Pennsylvania and a frequent guest at media outlets including MSNBC and CNN.

In the diatribe, Butler cites a book she first read as a seminary student called Is God a White Racist? by William R. Jones. She found the book surprising then, but says she understands it now, particularly as she contemplates the death of Trayvon Martin, who died on February 26, 2012.

“God ain’t good all of the time,” Butler declares. “In fact, sometimes, God is not for us. 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.”

Butler is particularly upset at what she views as the conservative Christian conception of the Creator.

“Whatever makes them protected, safe, and secure, is worth it at the expense of the black and brown people they fear,” she rages. “Their god is the god that wants to erase race.”

Butler also complains about the Three-Fifths Compromise, which essentially treated slaves as three-fifths of a person, and which was part of the Constitution when it was originally ratified in 1789.

In 1865, almost 150 years ago, the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery, thus nullifying the notorious compromise.

“Religious conservatism of the 21st century is in bed with the prison industrial complex, the Koch brothers, the NRA—all while proclaiming that they are ‘pro-life,’” Butler also claims. “They are anything but. They are the ones who thought that what George Zimmerman did was right.”

Just like the undisciplined children that they are, the left becomes unhinged when they don’t get what they want.

I just love unhinged lefties. They are sooooo entertaining. Unfortunately she is a government employee so somehow I’m paying part of her salary and retirement.

Since in popular mythology, God created all people, it is faulty logic to assume or announce that God is a white racist.

It sure seems odd the way absolute morons get to be president of the US and an Ivy League Professor.

Wait a second, they are both dark skinned. Affirmative action is the reason.

Never mind...

If I were paying tuition at U. Penn, I would be demanding a refund just about now.

No. God is a just God and despises evil, irregardless of race. Maybe black people as a whole just seem to engage in evil more often and don’t like to see it called for what it is. At some point it just cant be blamed on environmental or economic causes given all factors given. Some things are just obvious. Thank heavens for those that are good and not evil.

The detachment from reality is amazing. Why can’t someone prominent have the balls to say, “Enough with this BS about black boys being stalked and killed by whites. Do yourself of favor and look at some statistics instead of feeling sorry for yourself and making excuses for the conditions black people create for themselves. Your black boys are doing most of the killing in America, and that includes killing whites at forty times the rate that whites kill blacks. And I don’t care if that truth offends you.”

The Left is becoming more and more unglued over this verdict.

With the increasingly reckless statements that are being made, I’m beginning to wonder if this is the tipping point and we just don’t know it yet.

“God ain’t good all the time” …
Dangerously close to blasphemy against the Holy Spirit; accusing the works of God of being evil. (Never mind a Ph.D speaking in a vulgar manner.)

Poison Ivy League, my friend. Just like Princeton, Rutgers, Harvard, Yale, and MIT. Loaded with reds, socialists, hate-filled Black Studies professors, reparationists like Ogletree, Cone, etc.,

There used to be a time when you went to college to learn, to become a more educated and better person. Today it is to be haranged, denigrated if you are white, turned into a mindless, Marxist Obama Zombie, and a Democrat Party drone.

The mind is a terrible thing to waste, but you are paying for that opportunity, folks.

I find that community colleges are usually more patriotic, my practical in their education programs/degrees, and don’t turn you minds to marxist mush (except in California where the only real requirement to teach in them is to be a mindless marxist/irredentist hatemonger/teacher).

As for law schools, stamp many of them, Made in Moscow.
