Yep, believe it or not, Robert F Shedinger is an Associate Professor of Religion at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa who believes that Jesus was more into "social justice" than spirituality, and Islam is more a "social justice movement" than a religion, so therefore Jesus must have been a Muslim. Using his logic, since a banana is yellow and so is a sunflower, does that make a banana a sunflower?
Did he somehow miss the part about Christianity pre-dating Islam (by a very long time) during his M.Div. studies at Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary or his Ph.D. studies at Temple University?
In Shedinger's own words:
“I came to the conclusion that [Islam] was a social justice movement and I think that’s who Jesus was in the first century so I conclude Jesus is more like a Muslim.”
What a fool and a dupe. And this man teaches college?
He's not the only one, however, who believes that Jesus was a Muslim. So does Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan, but Farrakhan also believes he was black.
