Sharpton’s Easter Message: Celebrate Obama’s Resurrection

Al Sharpton, the incredible shrinking man, has not only lost the majority of his weight in recent years; he has also shed any credibility he had left. For a man whose rise to prominence as a race hustler was on the back of a lying teenager named Tawana Brawley, he obviously had very little to begin with.

Nevertheless, he still has the audacity to refer to himself as a “reverend” despite the fact that the only gospel he preaches consists of White House talking points. That fact was made nauseatingly clear in a recent radio interview on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

As Easter approaches, most Christian churches will share the faith-affirming story of Jesus’ resurrection after dying on a cross for our sins. Sharpton, however, will be sharing a decidedly different spin on that core tenet of Christianity.

“I think the message is,” he said, “that no matter what the world may do to unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified, nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job, that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.”

The “reverend” not only discounted Christ’s sacrifice by suggesting we can all experience something akin to his suffering; he also found a way to turn the holy day into political fodder.

Sharpton was apparently able to find a parallel between Jesus and Obama as he saw the latter “at our convention last Friday where all he took he’s been able to rise politically again.”

In an apparent attempt to play down his blasphemy, he said, “I’m not comparing him to Jesus,” before adding “I am saying that to every crucifixion there is a resurrection for those who believe.”

While Christ’s resurrection ushered in a new covenant between God and His children, Obama’s “resurrection” is defined by approval ratings in the low 40 percent range and an unpopular healthcare law forced onto a disillusioned American public. The parallels, in Sharpton’s mind at least, are striking.

For believers in the true meaning of Easter, on the other hand, this is just further proof that Sharpton has become a very rich man by bastardizing religion in the pursuit of his own goals.

This was unfortunately not the first time a political hack has tried to compare Obama to Christ. According to the dogma of radical leftism, Obama is as close to a savior as America has ever produced.

    This ‘race hustler, and so called reverend has made a living out of EXPLOITING corporations, businesses, and whites in general.’ He NEVER comes out to the side of a white person—as he’s ONLY made CASH from keeping blacks enslaved to the Democrat Plantation, and controlling them, by keeping them victims. Now he was an informant for Drugs in the Mafia?
    Priceless….it would seem that he’d be Selling them, for CASH. He ran for
    POTUS, ONLY to collect millions, and he KEPT what he could. Never was investigated on the money trail either. That MSNBC was SO DESPARATE they hired THIS Dumber than Dirt Hustler? Wow! Obama has HIM at the Whitehouse
    for advice? Priceless…perhaps they needed to come up with another plan to keep “blacks in the dark…with Their unemployment at around 15%. He is an “Obama Bootlicker, and kisses the ring, to stay on top of the heap”

    BTW: Sharpton knows Nothing about any resurretion, he’s just “kissing up to Obama, who uses him to keep the blacks in line.” This Reverend has NO church, and ONLY preaches when he can MAKE SOME CASH OUT OF SOME INCIDENT.
    This reverend is as bogus as Jesse Jackson, who’s made quite a living out of exploiting his Own people. He’s taken money from those dumb enough to contribute to his ‘rainbow coalition’ and used it on various things, like his mistresses’ that he had a kid with, and bought them a home in California. New One is supposedly Tamra Holder, who guests on Fox….Tell me something, is Mrs. Jackson NOT awake, or paying attention to this cheat?
