In a discussion on his show with Chris Cuomo Don Lemon said that Jesus was not perfect when he was on earth:
“Jesus Christ, if that’s who you believe in, Jesus Christ, admittedly was not perfect when he was here on this earth….So why are we deifying the founders of this country, many of whom owned slaves?”
In his discussion about the founding fathers and slavery he argued that the founding fathers were imperfect, and owned slaves therefore why are they defied. He also seemed to be saying because the Christian founding fathers were imperfect then so was Jesus.
Responding the the comments Pastor Robert Jeffress, the pastor of 14,000-member First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, told Fox News, “Don Lemon’s comments are, first of all, heretical….and it contradicts the most basic tenet of the Christian faith and demonstrates how tone-deaf the left is to faith issues.”
