At Church “Sermon” Sharpton Preaches To Continue The Fight For Michael Brown

Originally Published in DeneenBorelli.com on 11/30/14.

On Sunday, Al Sharpton played church “preacher” at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis. Sharpton used the church to criticize the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson.

The Washington Post reported on Sharpton’s sermon:

“We lost the round, but the fight ain’t over,” Sharpton said, referring to the decision of a grand jury not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting Brown on Aug. 9. “You won the first round, Mr. Prosecutor, but don’t cut your gloves off, because the fight is not over. Justice will come to Ferguson!”

Using boxing imagery in a church sermon is clearly not appropriate. Sharpton will bring his message of victimization and conflict to any venue including a church to promote his self-serving agenda.

Amazing what they will demonize other Preachers for saying at the pulpit and threaten them with violation of their 501c3 status, but then turn around and preach a similar message but it's okay because their's aligns with their purpose, political and financial purpose.
