During one of last week's episodes of CNN Tonight, CNN anchor Don Lemon recklessly insulted Christians everywhere by claiming Jesus "admittedly was not perfect."

While discussing the issue of statues and monuments of historical Confederate figures, Lemon said, "Jesus Christ — if you believe in, if that's who you believe in, Jesus Christ — admittedly was not perfect when he was here on this earth. So why are we deifying the founders of this country, many of whom owned slaves?"

His anti-Christian rhetoric was quickly denounced by many well-known Christian leaders.

Mike Huckabee tweeted, "Just when I didn't think Don Lemon could say something any dumber than stuff he's already said, he 'dons' his ecclesiastical hat and declares 'Jesus wasn't perfect.' In the faith world, we call that kind of arrogant comment 'blasphemy.'"

Pastor Robert Jeffers told FoxNews, "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."

Legendary NFL coach Tony Dungy called Lemon to task, tweeting, "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. I'm not sure the point you're making but your premise is dead wrong. That was the point in Jesus coming!"

So far, Lemon has not responded to the criticism, and CNN has been silent, signaling its intention to let Lemon's offensive and false narrative go without reprimand.

TAKE ACTION

Sign our petition to CNN, insisting it require Don Lemon to issue an apology for the false and insensitive claim that the Son of God was not perfect during His walk on earth.
