    Sheriff emailed political cartoon... religious leaders call for his resignation

    Not sure if this is a repost...

    HOUSTON -- A group of religious leaders has called for the Harris County sheriff's resignation, KPRC Local 2 reported Thursday.

    The Houston Ministers Against Crime said Sheriff Tommy Thomas should step down after a cartoon about the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson was found in his e-mails.

    The group said Thomas sent an e-mail containing a cartoon drawing of Sharpton and Jackson making a wish that hatred and bigotry go away. Sharpton and Jackson disappear in the next drawingracial e-mails sent by District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal.

    "We call for their resignations," the Rev. Robert Jefferson said. "Every time it comes up we're going to step up to the plate and we're going to say something about it because it's not right. Not only that, we're going to take it further. You will see lawsuits filed and everything we possibly can."

    "As long as this present regime is in office, black folk will never get any justice," the Rev. James Nash said.

    The sheriff's office did not have an official reaction to the call for Thomas' resignation. A representative said the sheriff has always thought of the cartoon in question as a political satire.


    FIGHT ON!

    Proof positive that the biggest racists are those featured in the cartoons. And in the churches.

    Yes. Somebody was accusing two black men of being racists and bigots. We can't have any of that going on can we? What a bunch of crap. People need to learn to lighten up.

    Are you really certain about that?
