How can JesseJackson and AlSharpton be called Reverend?

Posted on 03/31/2012 12:33:28 PM PDT by kas7351

It truly amazes me as to how anyone call either of these men Reverend, considering how they act, tell lies and create race wars?

Shouldn't a REVEREND ACT like a Man Of God?

Come on man.
For about twenty bucks you too can get a license as a minister in some crappola “church”.
Get tax relief and have the ladies call you preacher man.

I saw article the other day calling Malik Shabazz a reverend, LOL.

I guess reverend (when used by the media) is a synonym for race baiting pig anymore. Sure seems that way.

Question: "How can JesseJackson and AlSharpton be called Reverend?"

Response: They are called reverend solely to increase their credibility among the thoughtless. The same principle applies when MLK is called "Doctor."

Dimwitted people are easily impressed with titles, so it stands to reason that a titled moron has more influence upon untitled morons.

Jackson spent 2 1/2yrs at Chicago Theological Seminary and then left and worked in the civil rights movement.
In 2000, the seminary gave him his Master’s degree in divinity, saying that he’d earned it because of all the work he’d done in his life.

Chicago Theological Seminary didn't do its job. All Masters Degree Candidate normally have to complete a Masters Thesis ans then defend it before a panel, and if deemed acceptable by the panel only then is the Masters Degree granted. Not for “Community activist work.”

Then... Community activist work is the Chicago way to get your street creds.

If you’ll pardon the pun, they both seem to be cut from the same cloth.

Jesse has his love child. I believe the baby’s momma got paid off through one of Jesse’s campaign funds.

Rev. Al cheated on his wife using his presidential fund for expensive hotels and lavish living and got caught by the Mrs. And the FEC. The wife left “Big Daddy” while the FEC made him return $100,000!

Yep, two morally superior, upstanding members of the community. Well, except for not being able to keep “it” in their pants!

Well, if one wants to get pedantic, no human should be called “reverend” because it literally means someone to be feared as God should be feared. It’s a title of God per Psalm 111:9.

The same principle applies when MLK is called "Doctor."

Sorry, but you're wrong. Dr. King was awarded a PhD in Systematic Theology by Boston University in 1955. His thesis was A Comparison of God in the Thinking of Paul Tillich and Henry Wieman.

Dr. King earned the honor accorded him.

What you say about a master’s degree is generally true. But every school has the option to decide under what conditions and in what way it will award it’s degrees. My parents had friends who were awarded bachelors and masters degrees by colleges and universities without actually completing their degree work, because their studies were interrupted by World War II. My dad was 4F because of a disastrous leg fracture suffered during boyhood. He had to earn his degrees the old fashioned way. I can still find his thesis at the school from which he got his master’s.

How can JesseJackson and AlSharpton be called Reverend?

The internet is an amazing marketplace (phony degrees for instance). How about drivers' licenses and fake ID sold on streetcorners in border cities? Sometimes people give others "honorary" titles as well. What religious or charitable acts have either of these men done lately? Is agitation something any religion (besides the one with fatwas and sharia law/honor killings) sanctions?

Some ‘Churches’ dont have a very high standard for those whom they desire to label “Reverend”.

These 2 are classic examples.

Not too many Years ago there was a popular magazine called “ARGOSY.” They always had an add saying send them $25.00 and they would ordain you a preacher and give you a certificate to prove you were a man of God. Jessy sent in $50.00 and became the first right reverend. Al was just too stupid and had Tawana Brawley send in the money for him.

Well one thing is for sure. If ‘to bear false witness’ is to make false accusations, you wouldn’t think they thought it was a sin or something.

“What Have or How Have either of these men benefited the entire country including ALL white, black, yellow, brown skinned people?”

That is a great point, in fact I can’t remember them ever mentioning faith or religion.

When they get in the spotlight they work hard to tear the country apart instead of healing.

They definitely are not REAL Christians!

I believe the Bible states emphatically that “...God is reverend...” Seems a little audacious for man to take that title on himself seeing how the Bible also says “...all have sinned....” Just saying.

Well, every time you turn around, The Just Us Bros. constantly flaunt their breaking of most of the Ten Commandments.

Theft, Bearing False Witness, Coveting, Adultery (Jackson), Killing (Sharpton's "Freddy's" fiasco), Love of money above God, and by claiming to be "ministers" - Taking the name of The Lord in vain.
