Did Al Sharpton Out Anderson Cooper?
Al Sharpton has a legacy of racism, homophobia, bigotry, financial impropriety, inciting racial violence, and of course there`s the Tawana Brawley incident.
"Sharpton was quoted as saying to an audience at Kean College in 1994 that, `White folks was in caves while we was building empires ... We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.`"

In one statement Sharpton manages to insult Whites and homosexuals in his own inimitable grammatically-impaired manner.
The Rev. Al Sharpton is in no position to question anyone`s salvation, but in a recent appearance on CNN he managed to out Anderson Cooper and condemn him to hell at the same time.
I don`t care if Cooper is straight or homosexual, but there are rumors about Cooper`s sexual orientation. Both Out.Com and The Advocate claim that Cooper is gay.
"Rev. Al Sharpton, who once quipped that gay Republicans are like chickens who eat at Kentucky Fried Chicken, has inadvertently mentioned on CNN the other night that news anchor Anderson Cooper may be living a sinful life, alluding to his alleged homosexuality.
Cooper recently hosted a segment on CNN with Al Sharpton, author Roland Martin and Family Research Council President Tony Perkins.
Towelroad.com noted that the three men debated the rights and `wrongs` on the issues of homosexuality, AIDS and other religious hot button subjects when Sharpton pointed out that Anderson may very well land in Hell for his behavior.
`I may have some very conservative personal feelings but I feel you have the right to live your life differently. I may think that what you do Anderson is gonna put you in Hell, but I`m gonna defend your right to get there.`"

Assuming for one split second that there`s a heaven, Cooper`s sexual orientation will have no bearing where he spends eternity. Sharpton should get his own life in order, before he makes wisecracks about where anyone else will spend eternity.
Ministers serve no useful purpose, I`m persuaded, assuming for one split second that there`s a hell, that preachers will be consigned to the hottest region.
