For the almost three decades, with a certain element of foreknowledge, I've watched as LDS folks have insinuated themselves into every nook and cranny of Christendom.
The Right Reverend, His Holiness, Monsignor Albert "The Devil Made Me Do It" Sharpton has created a scenario which could lead to undreamed of Mormon advances in their quest to be seen not as an alternate religious choice but as a mainstream Christian choice.Leaders for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Rev. Al Sharpton are planning an in-person meeting, a church spokesman said.Public relations coups such as this are not easy to come by; I'm sure the PR muckymucks in Salt Lake City are singing high praises to whomever they worship ... but it's not the God of the bible.
Sharpton asked for the meeting during a telephone apology he gave to two church elders after he said during a May 7 debate that Mormons don't believe in God.
"Mr. Sharpton and church leaders are looking at possible dates for a meeting, but nothing is imminent," church spokesman Scott Trotter said.
As much as I hate to admit it, Fat Albert got this one right. His willingness to apologize for telling the truth is evidence he does not understand his own "faith" and that he is not seeking "first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness."
Mark this down ... neither Sharpton nor Romney will benefit as greatly as do the Mormons over this brouhaha.
