Sharpton’s Easter Message Is About the Crucifixion and Resurrection ... of Obama

‘I’m not comparing [Obama] to Jesus, but I am saying that to every crucifixion, there is a resurrection for those who believe’

Rev. Al Sharpton’s Easter message: Politically ‘crucified’ Obama has risen again (The Washington Times)

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career.

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.”

The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death, “because he knew he could rise.”
