Al Sharpton's Odd Couplings

On the heels of porn publisher Larry Flynt’s account of his friendship with the late Rev. Jerry Falwell comes news today of the Rev. Al Sharpton touring Mormon headquarters in Salt Lake City and dining with one of the Church Elders.

The visit comes in the wake of another odd coupling, an exchange of ideas with atheist Christopher Hitchens, during which the Rev. Sharpton, Don Imus’ scalp hanging from his ample belt, indicated that Mormons may not be real Christians.

At this rate, will the intrepid minister next be debating the Devil? Does Rush Limbaugh have guests on his show? Does self-promotion make strange bedfellows?
