Don Lemon Says No One Is Perfect, Not Even Jesus Christ

OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

CNN host Don Lemon tried to criticize the Founding Fathers when he swung, missed, and accidentally knocked every Christian around the world.

During a segment with his colleague Chris Cuomo, Lemon said he does not know why people elevate the Founding Fathers to such prestige when they were fallible. The American icons are far from perfect—because no one was perfect—not even Jesus Christ, the host said.

“Jesus Christ — if that’s who you believe in, Jesus Christ — admittedly, was not perfect when he was here on this Earth,” Lemon said. “So, why are we deifying the founders of this country, many of whom owned slaves?” he asked via the Washington Examiner.

“No one is perfect. Nothing is perfect. Not even the Founding Fathers,” Lemon added.

“They knew they had inconsistency with the logic,” Cuomo interjected via the Daily Caller. “All men are created equal except these men.”

“We have to stop deifying them,” Lemon continued.

“Nothing human is perfect. We are all fallible,” Cuomo added.

Lemon just casually tripped all over the most important premise of the Christian faith, one repeatedly defended throughout the Christian New Testament.

The Washington Examiner reports:

The biblical doctrine that Christ was morally perfect dates far back into Christian history and is well established in the New Testament. In 2 Corinthians 5:21 and Hebrews 7:26, the apostle Paul said Christ was “holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens” and that “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

The tenet was affirmed by early Church leaders and as late as the Second Vatican Council in 1965. Other verses, such as Colossians 1:15, describe Christ as “the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.”

The Daily Caller reports the duo then dunked on President Trump and his supporters claiming people can no longer support Trump simply for the good he does, but they should be forced to defend the bad as well.

“You don’t get a pass. You don’t say I support him because I like the deregulation but I’m not about that. No. You vote for all of it. You get all of it,” Cuomo said. “You own it.”

Lemon theorized: “It’s the last grasp for bigotry and racism.”
