    Shaun King Calls For Destroying Statues Of Jesus, Smashing Stained Glass

    Shaun King Calls For Destroying Statues Of Jesus, Smashing Stained Glass

    Shaun King, a prominent left-wing fundraiser and activist, endorsed the destruction of religious icons and statues in which Jesus appeared “white.” He described the artwork, which includes some of the most recognizable pieces of art in the Western canon, as tools of white supremacy.

    “They should all come down,” King said Monday on Twitter. He claimed religious artwork was created as “tools of oppression” and “racist propaganda.”

    "All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down,” King tweeted.

    King has over 1 million followers on Twitter, and in 2018 was ranked by TIME magazine as one of the 25 most influential people on the internet.

    I like to poke fun at the inaccurate portrayals of skin color, but I doubt they are the result of bigoted motives. Just ignorance of what people from that time amd place looked like.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    Well, I have always been amused that Jesus, in movies, is white with blond hair and speaks King James English with a British accent.

    Since Galilee was the equivalent of rural Appalachia(well, Galilee had even worse reputation), would't a more rural accent make sense?

    Wait? That is not true?
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    He's an irrelevant self-promoter. He'll say anything for clicks or a chance at being relevant again.

    So does a guy playing Hearthstone on youtube, and Glenn Beck. He's largely irrelevant.

    When you can control the conservative weirdos out there, I'll hold myself accountable for the liberal weirdos.

    It only takes one nutter doing something wacky.

    Control? I prefer to expose and educate.

    Good point. The Galileans were considered to be hicks by many Judaeans - hence Peter's accent betraying him in the Synoptic gospel accounts [Matt.26.73; Mark 14.70; Luke 22.59]
    "Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful" Attrib. Seneca 4 BCE - 65 CE
