Lindsey Graham is saying that Jesus’ Golden rule inspired him to vote “yes” for partial birth abortion zealot Elena Kagan. What? Maybe he should’ve also read the part of the Bible that says something like “Thou Shall not Kill.” I thought that part of the Bible was kind of a big deal too but I guess ol’ Lindsey didn’t read that part.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said that Jesus’s Golden Rule inspired him to vote to confirm Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court and suggested it would be a good thing for his Senate colleagues to also ponder Jesus’s words as they prepared to vote on Kagan.
“It is divine in its orientation, and it is probably something that would serve us all well if we thought about it at moments such as this,” Sen. Graham said on the Senate floor, as he pointed his colleagues to the Golden Rule and counseled them to look to the wisdom of “somebody far wiser than I am” as they cast their votes on Kagan.
As an associate counsel in the Clinton White House, Kagan was an architect of the legal and political strategy that President Bill Clinton used in vetoing the ban on partial-birth abortion. Her nomination by President Barack Obama in May was instantly endorsed by Planned Parenthood, one of the nation’s leading advocates of legalized abortion
So covetous is Graham of his “centrist” and “moderate” label that he will vote for a radical pro-abortion judge to sit on the bench for decades to preserve it.
You know what though, at least leave Jesus out of it please. Don’t pretend you’re making some great moral stand and have the gall to preach to us about Jesus inspiring you to vote for this pro-death oligarch. Word of advice – when taking the low road Senator Graham, at least hang your head a little because it’ll make me think that there’s still some vestige of a conscience within you.
