Hillary Clinton's Hypocritical Biblical Outrage

She slams the Trump administration with a disingenuous appeal to the words of Jesus.

With all the ginned up controversy over the Trump administration’s border policies in recent days, you had to know Hillary Clinton would wander back out of the woods to pontificate on the injustice of it all. But first, a little background.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended enforcing immigration law by citing the Bible’s book of Romans. “I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order,” Sessions said. “Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.” Without going into full Biblical exegesis, Sessions was both right and wrong. He was specifically responding to both conservative and liberal evangelical critics of the administration, but we’d prefer for him to leave this Biblical defense for others to make besides the one in power.

Enter Hillary. “This is not happening because of the ‘Democrats’ law,‘ as the White House has claimed,” Clinton insisted. “Separating families is not mandated by law at all. That is an outright lie. And it is incumbent on all of us, journalists and citizens alike, to call it just that.” Actually, she’s the one lying, as we explained yesterday. In fact, it was her husband’s policy. But Clinton only lies on days that end in “y.”

She wasn’t done. “Nor are these policies rooted in religion,” she lectured. “In fact, those who selectively use the Bible to justify this cruelty are ignoring a central tenet of Christianity. I went to a lot of years of Sunday School — I even taught it from time to time. I’ve studied the Bible, both the Old and the New Testament, and what is being done using the name of religion is contrary to everything I was ever taught. Jesus said, 'Suffer the little children unto me.’ He did not say, ‘Let the children suffer.’”

That’s rich coming from a rabid pro-abortionist like Hillary, who has even defended partial-birth abortion — the practice of literally collapsing a partially born baby’s skull to terminate his or her life. But then again, Democrats only care about children when they can exploit them for political gain. That’s true of abortion, gun control, education, welfare programs, immigration and so on.

While Hillary may throw out a vague Biblical reference to make her point, she and her party have utterly rejected God’s Word, preferring to make government their god. And it is their policies on each of the aforementioned issues that hurt children the most. Welfare and abortion have destroyed families. Education has ruined kids’ minds and indoctrinated them in leftist causes. And open borders and sanctuary cities have invited the flood of illegals across the border — including illegal smugglers who grotesquely exploit children for entry to the U.S. So, again, spare us the outrage.
