Catholic Theology Professor Says Jesus Was ‘Drag King’ With ‘Queer Desires’

Talk about “a whale of a tale” – this is one incredible example of students being  misled by a tricky-Dickie,  idiotic and deceived theology professor. In some circles, he’d be labelled as the personification of the “Anti-Christ”. (r. a. note)

Tat-Siong Benny Liew was appointed in 2013 to fill the Chair of New Testament Studies for the college in Worcester, Massachusetts. Ever since, he’s brought what student Elinor Reilly said in a college newspaper piece are “unconventional readings of Scripture” and “a new theological perspective to Holy Cross.”

Writing for the Fenwick Review, Reilly says “the centrality of sex and gender to his way of thinking about the New Testament” informs the professor on how to teach Jesus Christ to students.

Reilly refers to a book co-written by Liew, “Queering Closets and Perverting Desires: Cross-Examining John’s Engendering and Transgendering Word across Different Worlds,” which she writes “demonstrates the centrality of sex and gender to his way of thinking about the New Testament.”

… Professor Liew explains that he believes Christ could be considered a “drag king” or cross-dresser. “If one follows the trajectory of the Wisdom/Word or Sophia/Jesus (con)figuration, what we have in John’s Jesus is not only a “king of Israel” (1:49; 12:13– 15) or “king of the Ioudaioi” (18:33, 39; 19:3, 14– 15, 19– 22), but also a drag king (6:15; 18:37; 19:12),” he claims. He later argues that “[Christ] ends up appearing as a drag-kingly bride in his passion.”

Professor Liew continues:

In addition, we find Jesus disrobing and rerobing in the episode that marks Jesus’ focus on the disciples with the coming of his “hour” (13:3– 5, 12). This disrobing, as [Colleen] Conway points out, does not disclose anything about Jesus’ anatomy. Instead, it describes Jesus washing his disciples’ feet. As more than one commentator has pointed out, foot-washing was generally only done by Jewish women or non-Jewish slaves.

Professor Liew asserts that Jesus’s “excessive” and “deceptive” speech would be considered “feminine” in the culture of the time.

Liew isn’t just one flaky professor at the school. He teaches the primary New Testament class at the college and his “position and prestige which accompany an endowed chair in Religious Studies testify to the esteem in which his work is held by the College’s administration and academic community.”

“He continues to be held up as an example and a bold successor to the learned and discerning tradition of our Catholic and Jesuit College of the Holy Cross,” Reilly stated in the  Fenwick Review.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
