Rabid antisemite and hate preacher Louis Farrakhan is known for saying outrageous things such as how “Hitler was a great man,” but now we can add an outrageous claim to the pile.

According to the Daily Wire, Farrakhan was giving his Savior’s Day speech in February when he claimed that Jesus never died on the cross. What’s more, that God never sent Jesus to die for the world because God doesn’t love it:

God does not love this world. God never sent Jesus to die for this world. Jesus died because he was 2,000 years too soon to bring about the end of the civilization of the Jews. He never was on no cross. There was no Calvary for that Jesus.

Early one Saturday morning our savior taught us, when he found out he was 2,000 years too soon to end the civilization of the Jews, He decided that he would give his life for the truth that he taught, that His name would live, until the one that he prefigured came into existence. And that’s why the Koran says Jesus and his mother Mary were a sign.

Jesus didn’t die on Calvary; he died in front of an old Jew’s store that was boarded up, and the Roman soldiers came to get him.

The Daily Wire noted that after the video ends, Farrakhan continued his speech and claimed that Jesus died in front of a Jewish store at the hands of a Roman who convinced Christ to let him kill him so that he could forgo torture, and the guard would get a higher price.

Farrakhan then went on to claim that he, himself, was Jesus.

So as the soldier that had him was walking with him to bring him to the authorities, the solider was saying, “Look, Jesus, if I bring you to them, they’re going to torture you; but if you let me kill you, I will do it so quickly that you won’t hardly feel it.” And Jesus, according to what our Saviour taught us, he invited them to come and do it. He had his hands in this manner, arms open, in front of that Jew’s store. The Roman soldier took his knife and drove it into Jesus with such a force that his nerves just froze, and he was in this position, arms open, when he passed. He’s been embalmed to last for 10,000 years. You can believe it or let it alone.

The real story is what I tried to tell you from the beginning. It didn’t happen back there. It’s happening right while you’re alive looking at it. I represent the Messiah. I represent the Jesus and I am that Jesus. If I am not, take my life.

Aside from being a loon, Farrakhan is a mentor to many on the left, including those within the Women’s March.
