Progressive CA Pastor of “Brewery Church” Claims Feminist Jesus Was Killed By “White Supremacy”


You can say whatever the heck you want to about the Bible as long as you don’t actually open it up and read it.

A progressive pastor in California (because where else) who shepherds the first “brewery church” (because why not) recently made the claim that Jesus was a “person of color” who was “killed by white supremacy” (because of course He was.)

Speaking to NowThis (because…duh), Pastor Christopher VanHall of the Greater Purpose Church in Santa Cruz, California, asked “What would it look like to be a church that looked like the movement that Jesus started and not like the church that we know in America today? Out of that consistent questioning came this model for a brewery church that generates funds for local charities.”

Well, see, there’s his problem. Jesus didn’t come to earth to “start a movement”. He came to earth to die for our sins on the Cross. Pretty much everyone aligned with the left, whether they profess to be Christian or not, seems to frame Jesus ministry in a temporal context, like He was some kind of early revolutionary freedom fighter

"Person of Color" seems to be flexible, so that rhetorical convenience is a part of how it is used. In application, East and South Asians seem to be conditional POCs.

Jesus was Jewish. Pontius Pilate was a corrupt, inept, and weak governor assigned to a difficult province (Judea). The Jewish leaders who had transformed the temple in Jerusalem into a racket perceived, correctly, that Jesus was an existential threat to their racket. So they worked up mobs of people and gave Pilate a choice between riots and unrest that would get him canned (by Rome) or killing Jesus. POilate took the easy way out (and Judea and Galilee revolted against Rome anyway several decades later).

But as with DU, facts don't matter to many Progressives. In any more or less normal city this "church" would swiftly run itself into the ground and out of existence. But Santa Cruz is a Berserkeley-Wannabe. This outfit might last longer, unless their beer is undrinkable.
