SHARPTON AT TEMPLE SQUARE

After making 'insensitive' remarks about Mormon Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Al Sharpton is now going through sensitivity training at Salt Lake City:
Sharpton's visit comes about two weeks after he made comments about presidential candidate Mitt Romney during a debate with an atheist author.

Sharpton said: "As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways, so don't worry about that; that's a temporary situation."

Romney later criticized Sharpton saying the comment could be construed as bigoted.

Sharpton, who urged the firing of radio host Don Imus after Imus's racially insensitive remarks, said his words were taken out of context.

Today, he's scheduled to meet with officials at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and tour the grounds of Temple Square.

It's all so surreal it really defies commentary.

It'll be a battle of the historical grievances. The Mormon "apostles" will demand an apology for Sharpton inadvertently speaking the truth and Sharpton will demand an apology for excluding his people from cult recruitment.

I think that cancels out, and both sides can go back to being frauds and deceivers.
