UCSB TA would travel back in time to assassinate Jesus

A teaching assistant at the radical left-wing University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) was recently asked if he could go back in time 2,000 years, what would he do. Timothy Snediker, who is earning his PH’d in religion, responded, “Easy I would find and assassinate Jesus of Nazareth.”

Though Snediker apparently wanted to stop the spread of Christianity, in his article on CBN, Stephen Little quickly pointed out the painfully obvious:

Take a second and consider the irony. 

He’d kill Jesus, presumably to stop His message from spreading throughout the Earth. 

Breaking news, professor: That’s been tried and it failed SPECTACULARLY.

I’m not sure what the requirements are to teach religion at UCSB, but here’s a refresher course.

The Gospels tells us that the religious authorities of the day pressured the Roman governor to have Jesus put to death because He was a troublemaker. Can you think of a word that fits that description? Maybe…assassination?

Somewhere in Prof. Snediker’s training, he missed the fact that Jesus WAS killed to stop His message and ministry.

Then someone pointed out a second irony about Snediker’s desire to kill Jesus, because of a statement found on the UCSB’s faculty page for Religious studies:

After being caught in this double irony, it is now being reported that the UCSB teaching assistant has deleted his Twitter account.
