Rasmussen: Nearly one in three blacks favor removing ‘white Jesus’ from churches

Nearly one in three black Americans favor removing “white Jesus” from churches — a similar number, 28%, believe that most Americans are racist.

At the same time, blacks are “much stronger believers” than others that Jesus Christ was the son of God.

That’s according to a recent Rasmussen Reports survey taken after Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King called for bringing down any and all statues that depict Jesus as a “white European.”

“All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down,” he tweeted.

The man whose birth certificate shows two white parents claimed these things “are a form of white supremacy.”

Overall, just 13% of adult Americans agree with King, while 69% disagree:

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 69% of American Adults disagree with this statement: “All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus and his European mother and their white friends should also come down. They are a gross form [of] white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down.

 

A far more troubling result was that just 65% of Americans continue to believe that Jesus Christ was the son of God who came to earth to die for our sins, a drop of 12% in four short years — 22% do not share that believe and 13% are not sure.

Four years ago, the number of believers was 77%, Rasmussen noted.

Only 9% of whites were down with felling “White Jesus” statues, while 13% of other minority Americans were on board.

Rasmussen reported that “sizable majorities” in nearly all demographics oppose the removal of “white Jesus” from churches.

Among Americans who believe Jesus Christ was the son of God, 16% favor removing “white Jesus” from churches; 70% are opposed. Those who don’t believe in Christ’s divinity are far more likely to be undecided.

 

Given that our colleges and universities are now indoctrination centers of secular progressive ideology, it comes as little surprise that adults under 40 are the least likely to think Jesus was the son of God and the most supportive of removing “white Jesus,” as the polling outfit noted.

Still, 63% of younger adults are opposed to His removal.

As a social media user tweeted, perhaps the survey will “alarm” the black community  to just how “insane” today’s social justice mob really is.

At the same time, if Jesus isn’t safe, the American flag and the Star Spangled Banner don’t stand a chance.

Not only did radical protesters topple the statue of Francis Scott Key, who composed the national anthem, in San Francisco last week, there was even a call to replace the anthem with John Lennon’s “Imagine.”

A song that urges listeners to “imagine there’s no countries… and no religion, too.”
