Commentary: Rev. Al Sharpton

The Reverend Al Sharpton has a commentary on CNN today relating to the focus of black church leaders on sexually-based themes, rather than social issues like race-based inequality, poverty and voting equality.

Rev. Sharpton makes the following comment about Dr. Martin Luther Kings mission,

And he performed all of his acts under the banner of Christianity. The church was his home base. The organization he founded was the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. He was a man of piety who saw Christianity for what it truly is — a religion that promotes peace and equality above all else.

But it seems that some have chosen to ignore or have simply forgotten the big-picture vision promoted by Dr. King and his kin.

It appears that this may, in fact, be the case. Well said, Rev. Sharpton.
