Not a Hero
Friday, May 11, 2007
I just have a couple of things to say on this whole "Al Sharpton/Mormon" debate.

1. Mormons do not believe in the same God as traditional Christianity. That is not bigotry, it's a fact. The Mormon god is one of many, and what they hope to one day become - an exalted man.

2. Al Sharpton is calling for "a dialogue of reconciliation between the Mormon church and the African American community." Um, Al? YOU are the one they have a beef with. Leave all of the other African Americans out of it.

3. Why was Al Sharpton debating Christopher Hitchens, anyway? He is such a sad man. What could a man who testified to the Vatican that Mother Theresa was a fraud and didn't really care about poor people possibly have to say about the presidential elections that would have any merit?
(Here's a quote from Hitchens, regarding Mother Teresa: She spent her life opposing the only known cure for poverty, which is the empowerment of women and the emancipation of them from a livestock version of compulsory reproduction.
If that's such a great cure for poverty, why are 700 million Chinese still living in poverty? Although, there is some kind of twisted logic there... we'll eliminate poverty by eliminating poor people)

4. Why do we care about Al Sharpton, anyway? Why is he on all the news channels, all the time? Has he ever had anything constructive to say?
