The Reverend Al Sharpton denied yesterday that he was attacking Mitt Romney's religious faith when he said in a debate with Christopher Hitchens:
"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."
Sharpton now says that he was contrasting himself with Hitchens, his debate opponent, an outspoken atheist. You have to hand it to Sharpton; for a big man, he is fast on his feet.
Lowell is not convinced by the Reverend Al's explanation. See more complete coverage at the Article VI Blog.
