Jesus was a Muslim. Says prof Robert F. Shedinger.

It's all here:

And here:

According to Shedinger, Islam is a “social justice movement,” not a religion, and since Christ supposedly supported “social justice,” that makes him a Muslim. To quote him, “I came to the conclusion that [Islam] was a social justice movement and I think that’s who Jesus was in the first century so I conclude Jesus is more like a Muslim.”
Well, some people ask:
Finally, about that “social justice movement” description, we’d like to hear more of an explanation about how a religion that encourages female circumcision and conquest of any and all unbelievers is somehow tied to “social justice,” or, if it doesn’t support these things, why people who believe it does are wrong. We also wonder why a social justice movement would be based around a belief that there is no God but theirs and their founder is the only legitimate prophet. We expect to be waiting a long time regarding these points.
I don't really know. Highbrow questions these.

But can I has professorship in that Iowa place? Puleezze...

I always thought that Jesus was Mary and Joe's son. You know that Mary who was throwing herself in front of every Roman soldier. (Bigus Dickus was a great favorite of hers.) Then again that quickie marriage and you tell me that Jesus was early? Like hell he was!

And that kid! Did you see how much trouble he got into? Running with the wrong crowd. Selling that hash the Romans like. It amazed us that he didn't get sent to the mines or worse.

Then his adulthood. Social Justice? More like chasing everything in a skirt, tunic or the rumor of him and a few goats. It's no wonder the Roman's crucified him!!!! I understand he had a "good time" with Pilate's best milking goat.

As for Muslim (Whatever that is?), if it lets one enjoy the pleasures of a goat, Jesus would have joined it!

If he's trying to curry favor with the Muslims, I think this one may go over their heads.

Well, they consider Jesus to be one of the Muslim prophets.
