Yesterday, we reported that CNN host Don Lemon had insulted Christians everywhere when he said that Jesus Christ “admittedly was not perfect.” Now, NFL legend Tony Dungy is firing back at him, saying that anyone who “believes the Bible” would not agree with this sentiment.
“Jesus Christ, if that’s who you believe in, Jesus Christ, admittedly was not perfect when he was here on this earth,” Lemon told his fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo earlier this week. “So why are we deifying the founders of this country, many of whom owned slaves?”
Dungy, who is deeply religious, was not about to let Lemon get away with this.
“I’m sorry Mr Lemon but just who ‘admitted’ that Jesus Christ was not perfect here on earth? Not anyone who believes the Bible. Not anyone who trusts in Jesus as their savior,” Dungy tweeted. “I’m not sure the point you’re making but your premise is dead wrong. That was the point in Jesus coming!”
Dungy was not the only Christian who fired back at Lemon for his blasphemous remarks. Pastor Robert Jeffress, the pastor of 14,000-member First Baptist Church of Dallas, told Fox News that what Lemon said “makes him and his network the uncontested champions of Fake 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,” said Jeffress. “Our founding fathers, like all of us, were imperfect human beings, but Jesus Christ was different than any other man that lived, and as the founder of our faith, He had to be perfect.”
This has been a particularly rough week for Lemon, as Fox News host Tucker Carlson also managed to dig up a clip from 2013 in which he warned black people to “clean up your act.”
Author and political pundit Dave Rubin explained why the clip highlighted Lemon’s hypocrisy so perfectly.
“The reason this clip on Lemon is lighting up the Internet isn’t really about hypocrisy, people can honestly change their opinions based on new information. (I sure have),” Rubin explained. “It’s that Lemon went from making reasoned, fact-based arguments, to emotional propaganda. It’s backward.”

Diva Don Lemmonnn is nuckin futs!
Don Lemon is what happened when Zucker pulled his head out his a hole.
Piss on them idiot liberals. Damn near if not all conservatives are Christians. The liberals who say they are Catholics don't really believe that, they just say that while they vote for abortions.
What a low cowardly man this is. Nothing more is necessary to say
I know, but the Bible says to love your enemies, do unto others as you would be treated, and judge not. It's hard, but I guess this would apply to Lemon, too.....VERY HARD, but not impossible. You know, people, who question or seek, come to believe, or not believe, a lot of times, by seeing the examples set by those doing the "preaching"....it's a "dilemma", sometimes to live with, as a Christian, or any other religion...
If being rich in this world is his "power", Almighty God can make Lemmon, according to this worlds standards, the poorest ever to walk in this life to his last breath, by HIS sheer will alone, quicker than the blink of an eye!! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, told Satan himself, "Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God." Matthew 4; 7. (KJV) So just WHO does "Lemmon" think he is?!
Don Lemon is a GAY ,,, nothing coming out of his mouth is worth considering !!
Lemon and Cuomo! Laurel and Hardy. At least one of these duo's is funny!
Mr. lemonhead I would love to be there when you meet Jesus face to face and tell him he was not perfect. I home you have about 2000 gallon of sunscreen on you will definitely need it.
Lemon is historical, religious and political fool. The only reason he has a job is so his bosses can promote the black LGBTQURST community.
