Rutgers U. professor: Christian conservatives worship ‘a**hole’ God and ‘white supremacist Jesus’
Brittney Cooper

So, Prof. Cooper, tell us how you really feel. That’s Prof. Brittney Cooper, of Rutgers University, who sounded off at Salon earlier this month on Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (“religious freedom garbage” in Cooperspeak) and its supporters (haters of “every single group of people who are not white, male, Christian, cisgender, straight and middle-class”).

Saieth Cooper, who teaches Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies:

Any time right-wing conservatives declare that they are trying to restore or reclaim something, we should all be very afraid.

A disinterested observer might note that a professor at a publicly funded, state-run university who defiles the God worshiped by 83% of her fellow countrymen as an “a**hole” should also raise red flags.

Cooper doesn’t stop at attacking Christians, of which — curiously — she considers herself one. She also goes after those who would deny religious freedom to followers of Islam. She cites the Supreme’s Court Hobby Lobby decision as the “kind of law [that] in this political climate sanctions the exercise of Islamophobia.” So, in Cooper’s world, defending the rights of Christians equals “religious freedom garbage,” while defending the rights of Muslims is a noble and worthwhile endeavor.

Putting aside the blatant double standard, Cooper doesn’t bother to explain how she squares her admiration of Islam, which is repressive and barbaric in its treatment of women, with her feminist credo.

At her web page, Cooper styles herself a “next generation black intellectual.” Here’s hoping her brand of intellectualism follows her to the grave.
