In case you didn’t hear it, Michael Vick’s latest media frenzy came the other day on a Washington D.C. radio station. Michael Muhammad, the chairman of the Southeastern Virginia Arts Association, has decided to honor Vick with an award later this month for his success off the field since being released from jail.
In an interview with WAVY-TV, Muhammed said:
“”People talk about the fact that Michael Vick was a convicted felon. Well, so was Jesus Christ, yet he was able to do things above and beyond the naysayers,” Muhammad recently told the station.
Not the right choice of words Mr. Muhammad.
First Vick is given the keys to Dallas, the most rivaled football city to the Eagles. Then he is asked to go onto Oprah, in which he ended up canceling last second. Now he is being compared to Jesus Christ?! Granted he brought all of this on himself with his actions of a few years ago, but can’t the man catch a break?
Here is a lengthier article from the Philadelphia Inquirer about Muhammed’s comments and reaction to the comparison.
