There Was Only One Crucifixion With Resurrection, Al...

"Reverend" Al Sharpton on Wednesday decided to write his own scripture by inferring that Barack Obama has been crucified by his critics but has risen again. Sharpton, who caught himself as he was making his declaration, may need to go back and study the Bible some more. His speech borders on blasphemy.

"I think that the message is, no matter what the world may do to unfairly, no matter how your 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 story of Jesus on the cross. no matter what they humiliated him with. no matter how they mocked him he took it, because he knew he could rise. And the story of Easter and my message for this Easter session is no matter what unearned suffering you go through, that if you know you can rise above it, don’t become like the diseases that you fight."

"As I looked at President Obama at our convention last Friday where all he took he’s been able to rise politically again.. I’m not comparing him to Jesus, but I am saying that to every crucifixion there is a resurrection for those who believe…"

Hey Al...  I'm no reverend but I know there has only been one crucifixion in history from which the person rose from the dead and it certainly wasn't Barack Obama. For you to compare your idol to Jesus Christ is pathetic.

First of all, Barack Obama has not been crucified by anyone. Receiving criticism and experiencing a large drop in approval ratings because of poor job performance is part of being President. I'm somewhat surprised you didn't say he was resurrected from a lynching since Obama himself has claimed to be a victim of racism and you like to turn everything into a racial issue. I'll give you credit for not doing that this time but what you said was far worse. Despite what some of his followers believe, Barack Obama is not God, nor Jesus, nor "our Lord and Savior," as Jamie Foxx once proclaimed.

Secondly, your statement "to every crucifixion there is a resurrection for those who believe…" is complete hogwash. As I mentioned above - there has been only one incidence of this and there will only ever be one - regardless of what you believe or what you tell others. And you call yourself a reverend?

Finally - changing the topic just a bit - I find it fascinating that you and the President and Eric Holder are such fast friends considering you and your organization, National Action Network, owes the government nearly $2 million in back taxes. A rancher in Nevada owes the government just over $1 million and last week the government sent helicopters and over 200 armed agents, including snipers, to try to collect it.

While all of that was going on you spent an evening with Eric Holder and another with Barack Obama  and not even a single IRS agent showed up to collect what you owe. It makes a person wonder....
