Black Pastor to Al Sharpton: "You're Nothing But a Pimp!"

June 08, 2015  | 

At a Hartford, Connecticut rally supposedly called to protest five homicides of young people in the city over the past two weeks – four of them shootings – Rev. Al Sharpton was challenged Saturday by a black pastor for asking every preacher present to donate $100 to Sharpton’s civil rights organization, National Action Network (NAN).

“I want to be here to see a memorial for the young people that have died,” said Sharpton at Shiloh Baptist Church, according to CT News Junkie. “I want the names and their stories up so children can see they don’t want to be on that wall.”

Pastor Marcus Mosiah Jarvis of Christ the Cornerstone Praise and Western Tabernacle, however, shouted at Sharpton as he strode down the center aisle of the crowded church, “How dare you ask the people of Hartford to give you their money! You’re nothing but a pimp!”

Jarvis slammed Sharpton for using the supposed anti-violence rally as a cover for “coming into a community where people are struggling for jobs, struggling for money, and demanding money to speak,” Breitbart News reports.

Way to go Pastor Jarvis, tell it like it is! It would be a good thing if more of your brethren of the cloth would publicly stand up to this professional charlatan that has been raking in millions by convincing people that he actually cares.

If you ever wondered if God really speaks, the Lord God has spoken through Pastor Jarvis in an open and public rebuke for the greed of Al Sharpton.

YES! But Pimp is less accurate then Whore would be to describe Sharpton. He sells Black lives for $.More Black community leaders need to step up and call Sharpton (and others)out for what he is a money whore looking for and promoting racial hatred and misery for profit.

It's easy to point blame & fingers, but what problems will that solve? Al Sharpton is criticized mainly because he's an outspoken voice against the very things we see brewing across this country. I don't have to detail what that man represents because we already know. If God wanted to speak through any of us to get His message across, trust me, it wouldn't have happened in that fashion. To be a man of the cloth one should know how to conduct the order of business and screaming in the manner he did only pleased the smaller audience. I don't agree with Al in some cases but the man raises awareness worth discussing. He pushes for peace and i respect that. Pastor Jarvis may have truths in his message such as people struggling etc. but that's true in most communities. My question is what is Pastor Jarvis doing about it? Donations for the civil rights organization? Either give or don't give! The push for peace and fight for equal justice must go on...........

Sharpton is nothing but a Race-Baiting for profit piece of trash.
Obama absolutely loves his methods!
