God: "The Big, White Racist" Who Presumably is Male and Dead

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.

Religion associate professor and MSNBC commentator, Anthea Butler said she blames God for the outcome of the Zimmerman trial, and adds that God is “a White Racist.”


Known for attacking evangelical leaders, charter schools, and Ayn Rand, Butler has now attacked God in her capacity as a religion teacher. 

In Religion and Dispatches, she wrote that “God ain’t good all the time. In fact," she continued, “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. As a matter of fact, I think he’s a white racist god with a problem. More importantly, he is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.”

She implored other tax-payer funded university professors to teach the same. “Those of us who teach American Religion have a responsibility to tell all of the story, not just the nice touchy-feely parts. When the good Christians of America are some of its biggest racists, one has to consider our moral responsibility to call out those who clearly are not for human flourishing, no matter what ethnicity a person is [sic].”


She said that when Zimmerman brought up “God’s Will” on Sean Hannity’s show, he was “diving right into what most good conservative Christians in America think right now.” 

She accuses Christians of being fearful of black and brown people, but didn’t happen to mention that Zimmerman is not white.

“Their god is the god that wants to erase race, make everyone act ‘properly’ and respect, as the president said, ‘a nation of laws’; laws that they made to crush those they consider inferior.”
