An Open Letter to Mr. Sharpton

In Articles by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

Dear Mr. Sharpton,

I’d like to take a moment to remind you that Reverend, by definition is:
1. used as a title of respect applied or prefixed to the name of a member of the clergy or a religious order
2. worthy to be revered; entitled to reverence

and Minister, as defined means:
1. a member of the clergy, especially in Protestant churches; a man/woman of the cloth; a man/woman of God.

As a Christian, I’m having a hard time understanding how you hold such a title. How does one who, in my opinion, is so financially motivated to wage war on our very own soil amongst our very own people deemed a “Man of God?”. Greed is one of the Seven Deadly Sins, and it sure does appear as if you bathe in it.
