Hemant Mehta reports at the Friendly Atheist:
Christian author, Falkirk Center “fellow,” and failed racist comedian Eric Metaxas says Jesus is white. 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!
Metaxas has hosted a clown car of right wing evil on his show, including Roger Stone, Phil Robertson, and Milo Yiannopoulos. Most of the thousands of replies to his heavily ratio’d tweet are WTF memes.
Jesus was white. Did he have “white privilege” even though he was entirely without sin? Is the United Methodist Church covering that? I think it could be important. https://t.co/lNv67Z7g5l

I know Nazareth and Bethlehem are towns in Pennsylvania, but…….
Those aren’t the ones where the Jesus stuff happened.
