Today at the highly politicized funeral of George Floyd fake Reverend Al Sharpton hypocritically attacked President Trump over his use of the Bible when he spoke in front of the burnt Saint Johns Church in Washington D.C. a couple of days ago.
“Let me ask those of you that in the traditions of eulogies need a scriptural reference. Go to Ecclesiastes, third chapter,” Sharpton said. “First verse says ‘to every thing there is a time and a purpose and season under the Heavens.’ I’m going to leave it there.”
Sharpton then proceeded to use Floyd’s funeral as a platform to attack the President “I saw somebody standing in front of a church the other day which had been boarded up as a result of violence, held a Bible in his hand. I’ve been preaching since I was a little boy, I’ve never seen anyone hold a Bible like that, but I’ll leave that alone.”
“But since he held the Bible, if he’s watching us today, I would like him to open that Bible.” The crowd then applauded as Sharpton added “And I’d like him to read Ecclesiastes 3.”
‘To every season there’s a time and a purpose.’ And I think that it is our job to let the world know when we see what is going on in the streets of this country and in Europe, around the world, that you need to know what time it is.”
Sharpton then went off the rails even further when he added “First of all, we cannot use Bibles as a prop. And for those that have agendas that are not about justice, this family will not let you use George as a prop,” at which the crowd applauded again.
“If you want to get your stuff off, don’t use him. Let us stand for what is right,” he concluded.
Talk about hypocrisy!
First it’s not appropriate to use a funeral to advance a political platform that has nothing whatsoever to do with the man who died’s life.
Second the “Reverend” Al Sharpton has practically made an entire career out of using the Bible as a prop.
After all a real reverend would not spend his life spreading division and hate for a profit.
