New Testament Professor Creates Fiction of Queer Jesus

At a Jesuit College he teaches a queer Jesus and claims the Gospel of John presents “gender indeterminacy.”

Obviously, a presentation of a queer Jesus is a blasphemous fiction. Just as obviously the only reason to develop such a fiction is to get rewarded with recognition by the ruling perverts in our society.

An honest atheist would simply disagree with the Bible and disagree with the Gospels. But progressivism doesn’t want to deal honestly with the Bible or Christianity even if only to despise it. If they deride the Gospels, they still have to acknowledge that they are there and stand in opposition to leftism’s own sexual anarchism. That is too much. They don’t want to allow even the possibility of a different point of view from their own. So they have to conquer Scripture by perverting it beyond recognition.

But there is nothing intellectually honest about this way of reading Scripture. You have to give up on the very idea of intellectual integrity to pursue it.

Breitbart reports, “Holy Cross Theology Professor Says Jesus Was a ‘Drag King’ with ‘Queer Desires.’

The theology program at the Jesuit-run College of the Holy Cross has taken on a new tone ever since the school appointed a gender-obsessed Chair of New Testament Studies who claims Jesus was a “drag king,” a new article contends.

Writing for The Fenwick Review, Elinor Reilly of the Holy Cross class of 2018 argues in a March 26 article that Professor Tat-Siong Benny Liew’s “unconventional readings of Scripture” have brought “a new theological perspective to Holy Cross.”

Letting the facts speak for themselves, Ms. Reilly suggests that “the centrality of sex and gender to his way of thinking about the New Testament” significantly colors the way that Professor Liew presents Jesus Christ to students at the Catholic College.

In a remarkable re-reading of the Bible, Professor Liew has argued that Jesus is not only “king of Israel” and “king of the Jews,” but “also a drag king,” as presented in the New Testament Gospel of John.

Saint John’s constant references to Jesus wanting water, giving water, and leaking water “speak to Jesus’ gender indeterminacy and hence his cross-dressing and other queer desires,” Liew contends.
