Behind the Dallas Protest

Laurie Higgins has written up a profile of one of the people behind the recent protest. From the IFI website:

What the tragic events of last week did not need was the distraction posed by one of the organizers of the Dallas protest, Dr. Jeff Hood, the 32-year-old bearded, bespectacled white man who is effective at one thing: self-promotion. While Selma had Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., an eloquent, dignified, and committed follower of Christ, Dallas had Dr. Hood, a narcissist committed to self-aggrandizement, sexual deviance, and syncretism.

After the shocking shootings of Dallas police officers, Hood—an admirer of Jeremiah Wright—could be found all over the airwaves, including on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly.

. . .

The Rev. Dr. Jeff Hood is a Baptist pastor, theologian and activist living and working in Texas. A graduate of Auburn University, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Emory University's Candler School of Theology, University of Alabama and Creighton University, Dr. Hood also concluded a Doctorate of Ministry in Queer Theology at Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University. Dr. Hood was ordained at a church within the Southern Baptist Convention in 2006 and received standing in the United Church of Christ in 2015.

The author of ten books (The Queer: An Interaction with The Gospel of John, The Queering of an American Evangelical, The Sociopathic Jesus, The Year of the Queer, Jesus on Death Row, Frances, Last Words from Texas: Meditations from the Execution Chamber, The Rearing of an American Evangelical, The Courage to Be Queer and The Basilica of the Swinging D*cks)…In 2013, Dr. Hood was awarded PFLAG Fort Worth's Equality Award for Activism….With deep soul and a belief that God is "calling us to something queerer," Dr. Hood is a radical mystic and prophetic voice to a closed society.

Just two months ago, the Dallas Observer profiled Hood:

Hood says he's anointed "to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable." "Jesus wasn't a Christian" is one of his sayings. He thinks "Jesus has a vagina," [and] "Jesus is queer" is one [of his sayings] that spurred hundreds of rebukes from Christians across Facebook, calling him a "false prophet," a "charlatan," and "nothing more than a left-wing activist." Some of his former congregation put him in the ranks of scandalous TV evangelists like Jim Bakker.

He also suffers from bipolar disorder, which sometimes means hallucinations and bouts of paranoia. . . .

A troubled individual. I recommend that you follow the link to the full article to see just what kind of people are inciting the recent wave of crime and injustice. This is what a professional radical looks like.
