Religion is evil when it’s practiced by Christians and Republicans.
Religion is good when it’s practiced by non-Christians, Democrats, and people who claim to be Christians but aren’t. For example, in an interview, Hillary Clinton said, “At the risk of appearing predictable, the Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking.” She went on to say, that she was “‘raised reading it’ and had memorized many of its passages. She contended that the Bible has guided her throughout her life. ‘I still find it a source of wisdom, comfort, and encouragement.’”
She was quickly labeled a hypocrite. How can someone who supports killing unborn babies and same-sex marriage claim that the Bible is the biggest influence in their life when the Bible opposes these practices?
The latest Democrat to be bathed in the sunlight of Christian religiosity is Sen. Elizabeth Warren. All of a sudden the Bible becomes relevant but only if liberals get to bend and shape it to fit a particular worldview that puts government at the center:
When Senator Elizabeth Warren last week visited the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta — religious home to the heirs and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. — the liberal firebrand began her remarks in a familiar vein, decrying an economy that only works “for a thin slice at the top.”
It might have been just another political stop, a timely bit of outreach to the African-American voters who could be key should she run for president.
But then Warren shifted her focus to Matthew 25:40 — and Jesus.
“Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me,” Warren said, quoting the Gospel. Then she shared her interpretation: “He’s saying to us, first, there’s God in every one of us, there’s Jesus in every one of us — however you see it in your religion, that inside there’s something holy in every single person.”
Warren is well known for her acrid take on Wall Street money power, on the Trump presidency, and on all the forces in American life that, in her view, deny equal opportunity to all. Much less well known is Warren’s relationship with God. (Newsbusters)
