i think i love al sharpton 2

“There is something immoral and sick about using all of that power to not end brutality and poverty, but to break into people’s bedrooms and claim that God sent you,” Sharpton told a full house on Sunday.

“It amazes me,” he said, “when I looked at California and saw churches that had nothing to say about police brutality, nothing to say when a young black boy was shot while he was wearing police handcuffs, nothing to say when they overturned affirmative action, nothing to say when people were being [relegated] into poverty, yet they were organizing and mobilizing to stop consenting adults from choosing their life partners.”

    Wow, that’s really powerful. Thanks for posting it! it always seems especially moving to me when religious people speak up for human rights (and particularly gay rights or something else that could be fundamentally against the views of their peers), i think because I close-mindedly associate religion with oppression and repression. But that’s my issue.
