A Georgetown University professor recently said on MSNBC that the Apostles’ love for Jesus could be viewed as “interestingly homoerotic.”
Just two days before Christmas, Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson appeared on “The Ed Show,” which was guest-hosted by MSNBC contributor Joy Reid. They spoke about “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson’s comments about homosexuals and African-Americans.
Dyson said, “Look through the Bible, there's a lot of interesting things. The same men who sat up in a church of all men… 'I put my God, Jesus, over all women, I love Him more than I love her!' Hmmm, do you really? That sounds interestingly homoerotic to people who are outside your religious tradition! I'm not suggesting it is, but I'm suggesting that there are some very interesting subtle narrative tensions within the Bible itself and within Christianity beyond that.”
In 2013, according to Georgetown’s website
, Dyson taught sociology courses called “The Sociology of Hip-Hop: The Urban Theodicy of Jay-Z” and “Barack Obama and Race.”
