What he says about Jesus is that he has been made into just another person in one of the parlour "families." He has been made into just another character who advertises stuff and says nothing controversial.

He's a regular peppermint stick now, all sugar-crystal and saccharine when he isn't making veiled references to certain commercial products that every worshipper absolutely needs.

In the part where Faber is talking to Montag and is getting to look at the Bible, he talks some about religion. He says that he himself is not religious, but he clearly thinks that the society has lost something when this has happened.

In my opinion, what this says is that they are trying to remove religion from society, probably because it is one of the things that tends to stir up problems in the society.
