Why are some religious leaders willing to forgive Michael Vick but unwilling to forgive Rush Limbaugh?

If Rush Limbaugh did or said something wrong why are

the reverends Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson so unwilling to

forgive him? They gave Michael Vick a pass and actually

fought for his reinstatement to the NFL..

doesn't the bible teach forgiveness? aren' t these supposed to be men of God?

Update:

Spike...

I fail to see what anything you said has to do

with forgiving somone

forgiveness has nothing to do with race...

God is neither black or white... true or false?

    Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are racists. If there is a Heaven, these two will have a lot of explaining to do when the time comes.

    If Michael Vick were a white conservative, these two would be first in line to condemn him and be very vocal about no second chance.

    The political and racial hypocrisy is astounding and I'm amazed that those on the left can support these positions and still look at themselves in the mirror without puking.

    Don't oversimplify this subject.

    Michael Vick has publicly denounced dogfighting, has done jailtime, lost his NFL standing and fortune. Now he has become part of an organization dedicated to erradicating dogfighting. He's seen the mistakes he's made. He's been knocked down off of his pedestal and has learned his lesson.

    However, Rush Limbaugh is unapologetic for anything he's done or said, nor has he he been knocked off his pedestel in any way for his pill popping addiction hypocrisy. If anything, it has elevated him further while his fans turned a blind eye. So why does he deserve forgiveness?

    Don't get me wrong. I'm not naive that Al Shaprton and Jesse Jackson are liberals and part of the reason they are trying to help Vick out is because of his skin color, but that's NOT the only reason they back him up.

    You don't need forgiveness for tell the truth.

    The left smear people will never be held accountable for their lies because Rush is a conservative.

    Al Sharpton has continued to lie and is never held accountable.

    Jessie Jackson outrageous comments and he is never held accountable (not even for adultery) even for paying for a mistress.

    Has Barney Frank ever been help accountable?

    I don't like the left statement because they are never backed up with proof.

    The left hate Rush because he tells the truth. You will have show me a lie he said oo yeah with proof please. His accuracy is over 99% none not Fox not CBS nor CNN can make the statement and prove it.

    If the media was objective the Rush critic would be exposed and have creditability.

    It has nothing to do with so called Rush comments it is the fact that he is willing to stand up and defend America from the left wing Agenda.

    Limbaugh doesn't require any forgiving. He hasn't done anything that needs forgiving. But, to answer your question the hypocrisy is liquid with Sharpton, et. al. Nothing that white people can do nor need to do as far as his crew is concerned. False prophets sums up the category these cats fall into. The bible does teach forgiveness.

    They may be men of God but they apparently are opposed to truth and decency! What Vick did was nothing short of animal cruelty and Rush has only been a voice of truth. What a screwed up society we have!!!!!!!!!!

    don't you think that by Rush owning a team it would polarize at least half of the few fans they (Rams) have left? isn't capitalism grand?

    What did he do that needs forgiving? Even if he did make racist comments, so what? He has the right to do that. One doesn't have to agree with it to comprehend that he has the right to say what he wants.

    Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson aren't real christians, they are race baiters who make a living, shouting racism every chance they get.

    1. Michael Vick has paid the consequences for his actions

    2. He doesn't still continue to do it.

    As for the bible - it also teaches contrition and not to have sex with little boys.

    When Rush shows some contrition and explains why he smuggled illegal viagra on a stag trip to the child prostitution capital of the Americas - then he will get forgiveness.
