The College Fix:
A UC Santa Barbara teaching assistant recently tweeted about killing Jesus Christ.
Tim Snediker, who is also a doctoral student in religious studies at the public university in California, tweeted late Sunday night that he would “assassinate Jesus of Nazareth” if he had a time machine.
In a follow-up tweet, he said he would also consider “murdering him before his baptism.”
Both tweets have since been deleted along with Snediker’s Twitter account. Before deleting his account, he changed his profile to say “Tim has repented, now he wants to save Jesus.”
The tweets drew quick criticism on social media.
Rod Dreher, a conservative writer, tweeted screenshots of the tweet and wrote “If you go to his faculty page, you’ll see the department statement backing BLM. It says that the study of religion teaches that ‘human life is holy because God is holy.’ Hmm…”
