“Reverend” Al Sharpton paid himself over $1M in 2018 from his “charity”. Do you think this is reasonable compensation for his “work”?

I doN't care, as long he's on the 50-year bread & water diet.
He claims be a reverend? He can ask the Lord to turn his bread & water into wine and fish. Until then... he should STFU

One of Rev. Al’s main sources of income is extortion. Ditto for Jesse Jackson.

I think it's at least as bad as Billy Graham pocketing millions off of his televangelism. I have zero respect for any of their ilk.

2no, I agree with you & Pha’s statement about, some so called Christian who are charlatans, like the multi millionaire televangelists & others I detest, like the Fakers & grifters making money off worshippers in the temple,which Jesus literally drove them out, Matthew 21:12-13, there were Religious crooks & charlatans even in Jesus time & even some Christian followers; Acts 8:9-25. But what does that have too do with guilt or innocence of Al Sharpton & what he’s done❓Are you trying to defend him, by saying 2 wrongs make a right❓As for Billy Graham can you provide the proof of him making millions of wealth from his crusades & ministry❓

Graham Cracker was worth ~$25 million when he died, and his son draws about as much from their charities as Sharpton does from his. Nepotism at its worst.

Phaly ... shall we compare the good that is done by the charities led by the charlatan Mr Sharpton and the charities led by Mr Graham? I’d suggest that you might not want to go there, as there is NO comparison between the good done by Mr Graham, would attempts to practice what he preaches and the disgusting Mr Sharpton who is nothing but a race bating whore.

I must again point out that I haven't defended Sharpton in any way, nor will I...I.think he's a con artist. However, he has plenty of company within his peers.

The question was about whether Sharpton was worth the money he was taking from his charities. My answer is no. Do you truly think that Mr. G, as you might call him, or his son are worth the estimated $25 million that they took from people who donated to their charities? For someone who preached against greed, that seems pretty excessive. In counterpoint, you see Pope Francis driving a cheap used car, and wearing regular shoes. Now that's a man who practices what he preaches.

Think Lovin Life
11/17/19 9:48 pm

Phaly ... point taken, but at least Mr Graham practices what he preaches. Have you looked into his charities or are you simply throwing him into the same pot as real charlatans, like Mr Sharpton?

11/17/19 9:56 pm

Oh, I know he's helped plenty of people, but doing good isn't a license to do evil. Do you think anyone who runs a charitable organization is justified in helping themselves to $25 million that was given to them by people who thought they were helping the needy?

Think Lovin Life
11/17/19 10:08 pm

Phaly ... I don’t. But for all I know, Mr Graham Sr could have inherited his millions. We do know that Mr Sharpton extorted his millions. We also know that Mr Sharpton owes the IRS over $5M, and was one of the most frequent White House guests during the dark Obama years.

Pha, even as an avowed atheist you’re picturing Billy Graham as a greedy money grubber is unconscionable even for you, I read the article you posted about him & the author was more fair minded than you were🤥It said both Billy Graham & his son were very open & accountable of the use of the millions they had amassed over the years with never any question of illegality or misuse, the writer even noted Graham could have amassed a much larger personal fortune in comparison to the modest 25million he had ! I read your entire article, but it makes wonder by your statements if you did❓🤨

phalnx Ohio
11/17/19 10:46 pm

I read every word, Ship, and as you well know, I've never avowed anything...I'm agnostic, not atheist. I'm also someone who has read the Bible multiple times, and $25 million is modest only in comparison to what he could have made had be been greedier. Neither that, nor the fact that it's legal wipes out his hypocrisy. Jesus, on multiple occasions, urged people to forego their worldly concerns and give their money to the church. How much more could Mr. G have helped if he hadn't hoarded that $25 million? I remember Jesus saying that a small gift from one who has little is worth more than a large gift from someone who has plenty. You both seem hellbent, if you'll pardon the expression, on extolling Mr. G's virtues, when clearly there is more than a little whiff of hypocrisy about a rich man urging others to give. My 2 cents, gentlemen.

Actually Pha, although I respect Graham & the Scandal Free life he lived, I still do have biblical issues with some of his preaching & teaching of God’s word & Christ’s teachings, plus those of the New Testament writers🤨❓But as “your” article maintained he was a good & honorable man, & not a con-man as Al Sharpton, who had none of his virtues as you still kept trying to compare together ❗️

Al Sharpton isn’t a reverend at all! He’s a race-baiting charlatan who has to keep racism going to make a buck.

I can’t stand people like this that lead those that have never stepped foot in a church to believe that all ministers are this way, when the vast majority of them are doing without to minister!
