St. Albans Cathedral in Hertfordshire, one of Britain’s oldest churches, is getting a woke new painting in order to keep up with the times. The painting is a 9 foot rework of Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” and it has a Jamaican model Tafari Hinds posing as Jesus, painted by Lorna May Wadsworth.
“The church is not in a strong position to preach to others about justice, racial or otherwise,” according to a statement from the Rev. Dr. Jeffrey John, dean of St. Albans. “But our faith teaches that we are all made equally in the image of God, and that God is a God of justice.” Dr. John added that the altar had been transformed to a shrine to black Jesus because “black lives matter.”
The move comes in response to calls from Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury and head of the Church of England, to reconsider the church’s portrayal of Jesus as a White man.
Apparently black Jesus is all the rage these days.
To be honest, I am perfectly fine with this. I do not want White people to identify with the circumcised rabbi anymore. I fully support people who say the ancient Israelites were actually black people, since Christian Identity is an absolute cancer.
Perhaps this will be a wake-up call for deluded White Christians, who see that they are not wanted by their church, and maybe (just maybe) they will realize that we should not love our enemies and turn the other cheek while we are being genocided by Yahweh’s “chosen ones.”
