Just when I was getting bored with the news, Hillary Clinton comes to the rescue.
The Democratic senator from New York said she is opposing a bill to get tough on illegal immigrants because it is unbiblical.
She claimed the legislation to impose felony penalties on illegals and those who aid them, is “certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures, because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself.”
Now let me get this straight:
- The Bible speaks out clearly and forcefully against homosexuality, but Hillary glorifies it.
- The Bible speaks out clearly and forcefully against taking innocent human life and on the personhood of the unborn baby, yet Hillary says abortion is a fundamental right.
- The Bible speaks out against lying, but here she goes again.
Don’t you love politicians who choose to make moral and biblical arguments when it pleases them, usually with no basis in reality, and then say others have no business imposing their morality on anyone else. I guess somehow Hillary and her friends have a monopoly on the right to impose their morality on the rest of us.
Hillary said under the bill, which has passed the House and nears a vote in the Senate, she would probably be considered a felon. I’ve got news for her. Many of us already consider her a felon. We don’t need any more excuses.
But what exactly is this biblical argument Hillary is making?
Who was the Good Samaritan? Was he an illegal alien? Or was he a traveler in his own land who was kind to a fellow traveler from another land? Does Hillary know the difference? It’s not illegal to travel from Mexico to the United States, nor does anyone want to make it illegal. However, it is illegal and immoral to sneak into the country, work here, live here, collect benefits here and generally rip off your neighbors.
Hillary may see herself as a Good Samaritan by spending other people’s money subsidizing that kind of activity, but I don’t. She may see herself as a Good Samaritan for being tolerant of the foreign criminal gangs that murder, rape, rob and push drugs, but I don’t. Hillary may see herself as a Good Samaritan for encouraging more Mexicans to risk death in the harsh elements of the deserts or at the hands of “coyotes,” but I sure don’t.
Just how exactly this piece of legislation would criminalize Jesus, I won’t even speculate. This is just the kind of hyperbole we have come to expect from Hillary, her family and her party. They’ll say anything, whether it makes any sense or not. They believe the American people are too stupid and dull-witted to analyze their comments – and unfortunately they are right about a big and growing percentage.
One thing I know about Jesus is that He never suggested we fulfill our responsibilities to one another through government. In other words, the lesson of the Good Samaritan is simply to love your neighbor. Hillary would make loving your neighbor a matter of compulsion and coercion. You will do it the government’s way or else. That’s not love, of course; that’s force.
By the way, just so you understand how Washington really works, the proponents of this bill want to drop the felony provision. It was Hillary’s party that insisted it stay – assuming the bill would be defeated with such an amendment. They were wrong. Now the very people who voted for the felony provision are its biggest critics.
Do you get what I’m saying here?
When Hillary casts aspersions against those who want to make it a felony to be an illegal alien, she is casting stones not at her Republican opponents, but at her fellow Democrats who insisted on the provision as part of their political gamesmanship.
That’s called deception, isn’t it? Isn’t that called bearing false witness? Isn’t there something in the Bible about that?
