Al Sharpton and the meaning of Easter

Turns out, it goes something like this: Obama, like Christ, has been crucified. But like Christ, he has risen! Long live the martyred Obama, Lightbringer and secular savior!

So much for that whole lefty separation of Church and State canard I guess, huh?

The only thing missing was a condemnation of the Jews. But then, Sharpton has banked plenty of that, so we’ll just find it in the penumbras and emanations.

For my part, I’m just going to say Happy Easter to all my Christian friends and leave it at that. If any of them feel the need to add Obama to the holy trinity, that’s up to them. Make it a foursome. So they can golf more traditionally in Heaven.

  1. Sharpton is that guy what pimped out that lying whore who rubbed poo poo all over herself

  2. what an amazing country

  3. Nothing like a big dose of blasphemy from Lil Al.

  4. WTF?

    For me, and for countless other Christians, Holy Week and Easter are times for reflection and renewal. We remember the grace of an awesome God, who loves us so deeply that He gave us his only Son, so that we might live through Him. We recall all that Jesus endured for us – the scorn of the crowds, the agony of the cross – all so that we might be forgiven our sins and granted everlasting life. And we recommit ourselves to following His example, to love and serve one another, particularly “the least of these” among us, just as He loves every one of us.

    The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. To remember, I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper.

  5. if you like your jesus you can keep your jesus

  6. I am my brother’s keeper.

    I wish he’d give this a rest. It’s totally out of context since the words of Cain were “Am I my brother’s keeper?” when he was lying about killing Abel.

  7. The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.

    Feel the love.

  8. Oh.Dear.God

    President Obama made his annual visit to a Christian church today. The First Family attended the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church in DC.

    The pastor lavished adoration on the president and delivered a sermon urging the congregation to support the LGBT community.

    Midway through the service, someone stood up, raised his arm in the air and yelled: “God bless President Obama.”

    According to the WH press report, the sanctuary thundered with applause. In response – President Obama smiled.

    Even on Easter — it’s always about Obama…

  9. Happy Easter, Proteins.

  10. delivered a sermon urging the congregation to support the LGBT community.

    Ah yes, from the lesser known Sermon on the Hump, ‘fornicate yhyself to a higher moral authority’ scripture.

    If memory serves, that was the gathering that witnessed ‘the miracle of the abortions’, where a multitude of women were relieved of their mistake with just a wink and a nod.

  11. thyself, not yhyself, of course.

  12. Oh look, some more of that Muslim brotherly love Al was on about.

    Israeli police arrested 16 Palestinians at one of Jerusalem’s most revered and politically sensitive holy sites on Sunday as they dispersed protesters opposed to any Jewish attempts to pray there. [...]

    Tensions at the site run high during Jewish holidays – Jews are currently celebrating Passover – when Palestinians oppose having Jews try to pray on the compound. [...]

    Aware of the volatile mix of politics and religion, Israel has largely stopped Jewish prayer on the plaza overlooking Judaism’s Western Wall since capturing East Jerusalem along with the West Bank in the 1967 Middle East war.

    Police routinely escort foreign and Israeli visitors to the compound and intervene if they make any attempt to hold prayers there.

  13. Our federal and local governments showed far greater tolerance, respect, and deference to the Occupy movement than the Bundy ranchers. Think about that.

  14. Howie Kurtz on his blabfest of a show on FOX had guests who opined that the Bundy story wasn’t important and that they should just pay their taxes and STFU.

  15. Words fail me

  16. crony O!capitalism explained

    THE EPIC HYPOCRISY OF TOM STEYER

  17. My neighbors have different beliefs than I do. Well, I guess they do. Never actually asked them. Or learned their names. But be that as it may, I think I’ll demand they convert to my Obviously Superior Way of Thinking under threat of death. Or, if I’m feeling charitable, let them off easy by way of a 10% jizya and their subservience.

    Because I love the bastards, whoever they are.

  18. eC: Six years on, and the Left still haven’t watched the Shooty, No-Shooty video.

    ‘Course they still think Marxism’s a great idea, so learning isn’t exactly their strong suit.

  19. The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.

    One of these religions is not like the others, one of these religions just doesn’t belong.

  20. “One of these religions” isn’t, period

  21. Fernandaz and the meaning of Easter.

    The Easter event is not primarily interested with answering the problem of the Dry Bones. “Can these bones live?” — of resurrecting human beings once they die. Rather the main focus of Easter is ‘who wins’, who rules the undiscovered country?

    Easter is about answering “who wins?” Returning to life is interesting, but Jesus is not even the first person in the New Testment to make it back. That distinction belong to Lazarus, and it’s almost treated as an uninteresting warm-up. The more important thing to answer is what is the character of the universe we are resurrected to. And so the main event in Easter is Christ descending into hell and overcoming it, an event which used to be called the Harrowing of Hell.

    What this means exactly we don’t know. It’s almost as if it involved events we have no vocabulary for. Religions give only approximate answers. Suffice it to say that Easter Sunday in Christianity is regarded as a global victory over Death, not simply as an instance of high quality resuscitation.

    Easter is a statement about the transformation of the entire universe. Acts says, “He was not seen by all the people, but by witnesses whom God had already chosen—by us who ate and drank with Him after He rose from the dead. He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that He is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead.” The living and the dead.

    Easter makes a claim about the very nature of the Cosmos. It answers Shakespeare’s question about the Undiscovered Country with the assertion that this unknown realm is not ruled an omnipotent tormentor but on the contrary by someone who says “I have loved you with an everlasting love”.

  22. Beta testing with a proxy, done. Real thing next, eh Harry?

  23. I wish he’d give this a rest. It’s totally out of context since the words of Cain were “Am I my brother’s keeper?” when he was lying about killing Abel.

    To be fair, if Sharpotn had a brother, he probably would have eaten him.

  24. You mean he didn’t?

    I wish people would quit giving that SOB the time of day, let alone his own television network.

    Pay Steve Pagones, Sharpton.

  25. To the Christians, Happy Easter!

    To the Jews, Happy Red Sea Splitting Day!

    ..or as I prefer, Happy Egyptian Drowning Day!

    Ok, I’m a day late..

  26. - How the West was re-won…the saga rolls on.

  27. How the West was re-won…the saga rolls on.

    Sagebrush Rebellion 2.0. The Obamunists, like the Carterites before them, want to lord it over the western states.

  28. Can’t Sharpton be deported? Or indicted, leading to his self deportation?

  29. And was NOT struck by a bolt of lightning out of a clear blue sky.

    Thus disproving the existence of a just God.

  30. Thus disproving the existence of a just God.

    A just God just might let a merciless commentariat combined with an unforgetful Internet do the work for Him.
