Check out with Al Sharpton said about Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, whose religion is Mormonism
"As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways, so don't worry about that; that's a temporary situation..."
One could say that the history of Mormons having weird discriminatory rules against blacks 40 years ago should be considered. It should be considered, but I don't think it removes Sharpton's comment of being bigoted.
I don't care what Sharpton said against Mormons, or what Imus said against the black women on the Rutgers basketball team. Both statements have bigotry & are offensive to some of society. But I think the 1st Amendment protects this speech. If you don't like it, boycott their businesses, and tell everyone you know to do the same. However they should not be fired on the whims of a few random people. This is what I do with mAnn Coulter & Michael Weiner "Savage", whose statements are 1000X worse that Imus or Sharpton IMHO.
What does OFFEND me is SHARPTON'S EPIC HYPOCRISY. How hypocritical is a guy who leads the charge to get Imus fired for Imus' statement, then a few weeks later says a similar bigoted statement against Mormons. Why doesn't Sharpton suspend himself? Sharpton will continue his public speaking as if he's not a hypocrite or bigot. Instead Sharpton will continue speaking on matters as if he has the moral authority of a Mother Teresa or Nelson Mandela. FOH douchebag!
Al Sharpton, you are one of the WOAT, an epic douchebag, an extreme hypocrite.
Here's another guy's editorial.
