Al Sharpton Bothers God And Mitch Romney

by | 10th, May 2007

THE race for the White Hosue is long enough to make everyone look good and everyone look bad.

Al Sharpton, Reverend Al, is the recognisable face of “all things black”, as John Ridley puts it. Whenever there’s a black issue, Sharpton pop up to speak on behalf of black people, whether they like it or not.

Al hates haters. And is at the New York Public Library with atheist author Christopher Hitchens, another exported English baddie, a kind of Simon Cowell with smaller breasts.

Says Al of Mormon Mitt Romney’s presidential bid:

“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.”

How very understanding and tolerant.

Romney hears. “I don’t know Reverend Sharpton,” he says. “I doubt he is personally such a thing, but the comment was a comment which could be described as a bigoted comment.”

But better than that is the idea that God will annoint the next President of the United States. Not the voters. Not Chad. But God. Who needs to vote when the result is a forgone conclusion. The Divine Right of Presidents.

This after news of George Bush praying with Tony Blair, as if being religious – or at least wearing your religion on your sleeve – makes you better able to command and more worthy of your position.

It’s not you who decides to bomb Iraq, it’s God who guides you. Isn’t this too much like the Islamists who claim to be mere functionaries of God’s vengeful hand?

Don’t worry about Romney – he hasn’t a prayer of winning…
