"As for the one Mormon running for office, those that really believe in God will defeat him anyway, so don't worry about that"
Those were the ever-so-intelligent words of the so-called Reverend Al Sharpton, you know the man who was ordained as a child. Sharpton said those words recently during a debate about religion with atheist Christopher Hitchens.
It's amazing I've heard no call to throw the Reverend off the air (you did know he has his own radio show right?) or calls for him to apologize publicly to Romney and the Mormon population in America.
You know, it's common for people to fear that which they do not understand and it is a fact that Mormons are often misunderstood. But surely one would think that an esteemed (using the term loosely) and well-respected (again using another term loosely) ordained minister like Sharpton would know that Mormons believe in God. Mormons not only believe in God, they acknowledge the Holy Bible alone as its authority from God. While Christians believe God is eternally and infinitely supreme, Mormons believe He gradually acquired that position over a long period of time by living a perfect and righteous life. They believe God the Father has a body of flesh and bones while Christians believe God is a spirit being.
What I find repulsive is not only did Sharpton have the nerve to say such a terrible thing but that none of his supporters have called him on it.
Oh I forget. It's socially acceptable to make fun of whitey, after all, whitey has about 300 years worth of mistakes to make up for....this latest is just part of the "reparations" he owes...
