Steve King Says Being Called A Racist Makes Him Just Like Jesus Christ

Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who had received major backlash for standing up for white supremacy, compared himself to Jesus Christ on Tuesday.

According to King, being called a racist is the same thing as being crucified for standing up for the poor and spreading love.

“For all that I’ve been through — and it seems even strange for me to say it — but I am at a certain peace, and it is because of a lot of prayers for me,” King said according to the Sioux City Journal.

Adding, “And, when I have to step down to the floor of the House of Representatives and look up at those 400-and-some accusers, you know we just passed through Easter and Christ’s passion, and I have better insight into what He went through for us.”
