Rabbit Hunting With Reverend Al

In a grim reminder of the failed domestic policies of the Bush administration, Sectarian strife continued in the United States Wednesday as Reverend Al Sharpton took on Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

“I intend to engage on this. He’ll find out rabbit hunting ain’t fun when the rabbit’s got the gun,” Sharpton said.

NEW YORK — The Rev. Al Sharpton escalated a battle with GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney Wednesday, demanding the Mormon explain his youth in a church that began accepting black people only 30 years ago.

“He should explain to Americans whether he believed for half his life that God created people unequally,” Sharpton said. “He needs to come clean and say what he believed and when he believed it.”

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints banned black people from the priesthood — to which all devout Mormon men are ordained — until 1978.

Since then, the church has actively battled perceptions it is racist and sought converts in Africa.

Romney’s campaign pointed to the candidate’s comment last week about his reaction three decades ago upon hearing the policy had changed.

“I pulled over to the side of the road and literally broke down. It was so important to me to see that change in my church,” Romney, 60, told NBC.

He also said his father marched for civil rights with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

The kerfuffle between Romney and Sharpton began Monday when Sharpton and atheist writer Christopher Hitchens staged a theological debate at the New York Public Library.

Attacking religion, Hitchens mentioned that a candidate belongs to a church that preached racial segregation until recently.

Sharpton said, “Those that really believe in God will defeat him anyway.”

Sharpton says he meant believers, not atheists, would defeat Romney. But Romney’s camp thought Sharpton meant Mormons don’t “really believe in God” and decided to make an issue out of it.

“It shows that bigotry still exists in some corners,” Romney said in Clear Lake, Iowa, the second day he blasted Sharpton. “I thought it was a most unfortunate comment to make.”

Republicans can never go wrong bashing Sharpton. And Sharpton seemed just as delighted to mix it up.

“I intend to engage on this. He’ll find out rabbit hunting ain’t fun when the rabbit’s got the gun,” Sharpton said.

“Fine, you take your shot at Sharpton, but now you got to answer the question. If you have a church built on racial discrimination, then I do not believe you are a true believer in God.” Source

    Return the poor rabbits face to normal before the beagles see this. This is enough to disturb their hunting instincts.

    We turned on the wireless connection on both and checked that they could connect to
    the internet and worked at a decent pace. Uncooked ginkgo biloba seeds have shown some small levels of toxins, so if you prefer the seeds it
    is advised to cook them prior to ingestion.
    Some manufacturers call their product a Cover while others use the name Case.
