Last week, as I was watched the Ferguson fiasco go down, I kept bouncing back and forth between CNN and MSLSD to see how the Left was pitching this massive destruction of personal and private property on behalf of the “innocent” and “gentle giant”, Michael Brown.
Both networks had black ministers on throughout the week that basically justified the riots. Yes, some pooh-poohed the extreme acts of violence, however several of them didn’t really crap on the “protestors”.
Chief amongst the “ministers” who didn’t seem to care what chaos was created was the Reverend Al Sharpton and his spirit-twin the Reverend Jesse Jackson.
As I watched these “men of God” cheerlead this mess, I started thinking to myself, “Self … what Bible do they read? … ‘The Race-Baiters Grievance Edition?’ “; because no one who’s ever traipsed through an unadulterated New Testament would think that such mayhem, for such a flimsy — no … farcical — reason is remotely justifiable. That is if, and that’s a big “if”, Jesus is the standard for a person’s behavior.
Indeed, if one read just a smidgen of Jesus’s teachings they would quickly deduce that if Christ were the blueprint for the believer, then the behavior of these looting morons is contemptible and worthy of a true minister’s rebuke and wide spread public condemnation. But, eh … not so much for the likes of the Reverend Sharpton and Jackson, which left me thinking that they must revere something else other than the Jesus of The Gospels because the Christ of the Scripture wouldn’t back their race-baiting and destructive behavior or anyone that fans those hideous flames.
