(Hat tip Right Truth)
If you are attending Luther College in Iowa, you might want to sign up for one of their courses in revisionist history, as taught by Professor Robert Shedinger. Shedinger has a book out whose thesis is that Jesus was a Muslim.
Here's a fun fact for Professor Shedinger. Islam came along some 6 or 7 centuries after Christ.
Now before some wise guy comes along and points out that I am missing the "deeper meaning" of Schedinger's thesis (I am not very good when it comes to deeper meanings), let me state that I get what he is trying to say. Yet, I still would like to point out some more "fun facts" here. How many have ever heard of this quote attributed to Jesus?
"Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone."
Question: Who did Jesus ever kill?
Whom did Jesus ever order killed?
What army did Jesus ever lead?
If one were to apply Mr Shedinger's "logic", we could come up with some other very interesting hypotheses, such as;
Babe Ruth, who hit those 714 home runs while juiced up on beer and hot dogs, was a "steroid user".
Of course, whenever anyone uses that term, "social justice", you know something boffo is coming next. Most people who use that term either believe in a totalitarian order or total anarchy, which shows just how muddled their thinking is. If the professor wants to make the case that Islam stands for social justice (which it claims to do) than we need to set aside certain Western concepts of justice, such as equal rights for women, homosexuals, religious minorities, and certain freedoms, such as freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
But what's the use of debating with some guy who thinks Babe Ruth was on steroids?
"Say it ain't so, Babe."
