A theology professor in Macon, Georgia is defending a prayer asking God to help her “hate White people.”
Dr. Chanequa Walker-Barnes, Ph.D., Mercer University associate professor of practical theology, responded to backlash in a Twitter thread Wednesday, saying critics are “so wrapped in White supremacist Christianity that only God and maybe some cult deprogramming can help them.”
The professor who teaches courses on pastoral care and counseling wrote the controversial “Prayer of a Weary Black Woman” in a new book, “A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal,” Campus Reform reports.
“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people,” Walker-Barnes writes. “Or at least to want to hate them. At least, I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively.”
Nationally-syndicated radio host Todd Starnes was bemused and stunned by the theology professor’s prayer.
“The devil went down to Georgia and got a job at Mercer University,” Starnes said. “Is the university aware they have a raging racist in their theology department?”
The professor who is also a psychologist goes on to say she wants to “stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist.”
