Don Spears, a New Orleans based author and lecturer pens one of the most provocative and thought provoking books of the century—LET US PREY. Don raises eyebrows again as he lays out in great detail how Jesus Christ, the radical revolutionary has been given the persona of a peace loving 1st Century Flower Child. He takes a mind-boggling look at Christianity and how it has been commandeered by Western civilization to be used as an instrument of oppression, domination and racism in controlling non-white minorities, especially blacks in America for over 300 years as a continuously exploited permanent underclass. How Christianity twisted and entangled America!
Was Jesus of Nazareth really God’s son or was the claim merely an ancient fable employed to help the elite maintain power and authority, a myth expanded by the Catholic church for the last 2,000 years to control the masses? Did an ancient prophet named Jesus, who was the Son of God ever really exist or did Paul, Christianity’s hero, invent him? Is Christianity as we know it only a tool used to propagate racial divisiveness and the idea of “whiteness” being equated to Godliness and superior to all other hues? Is the “Holy Bible” actually propaganda?
For centuries the belief in a white God and Jesus supported the notion that white people are superior and made in God’s almighty image, with white supremacy and privilege becoming the “order-of-the-day”. In 2015 is the segregationist “Old South” being reincarnated as the United Stated of America? Supporting slavery is the Holy Bible which preceded the repugnant Confederate flag not also a symbol of white supremacy and racism? Do blacks and whites, the oppressed and the oppressors, even worship the same God? Apparently not.
Let Us Prey definitely makes you think about how influential Jesus is in our lives 2000 years after his death. Believers and non-believers. Is Christianity the world’s greatest hoax ever?
