In perhaps one of the most offensive statements ever to seep from the lips of Reverend Al Sharpton, he has recently likened Jesus’ crucifixion to the “struggles” of Obama. As the spirit of Easter is in the air, Sharpton decided to compare the “unjust” ridicule that Obama has sustained to that of what Jesus suffered all those years ago.
Sharpton’s recent likening only goes to prove the deluded mindset obtained by the race-baiter. Somehow, he has drawn the connection that the excruciating death that Jesus suffered through – 6 hours hanging from a cross while being held on there with three nails impaled through his appendages before being stabbed in the side with a spear – is similar to that of the ridicule that Obama has had to endure through.
According to Sharpton:
I think that the message is, no matter what the world may do to you 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…
Sharing that just as Jesus suffered through the days up until his death – by being whipped with a cat of nine tails 41 times, wearing a crown of thorns and being forced to carry his own execution device (cross) – Obama has prevailed through the same turmoil as he rose to the top.
Being a self-proclaimed man of God makes these statements all the more offensive and disgusting in nature.
The logic here is quite baffling, but what are your thoughts on this? Let Sharpton have it in a comment below.
