Senator Elizabeth Warren today quoted the Bible to attack Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Apparently the Bible is appropriate to cite when Warren wants to make her own political points but she conveniently ignores the Bible when it comes to the value of human life starting at conception.
At a press conference today, Senator Warren complained that Judge Kavanaugh is supposedly on the side of corporations more often than workers and shareholders. She said that supposed fact makes it so Judge Kavanaugh is not qualified to replace retiring pro-abortion Justice Anthony Kennedy.
As the Washington Times reports, she broke out the Bible to support her position:
“Corporations have won 62 percent of the cases they’ve been in whenever they are up against workers, shareholders, people who represent the public interest,” Ms. Warren said at a press conference on Capitol Hill.
“This moment is crystalized in Matthew 25,” she said, surrounded by faith leaders.
Recalling the Bible passage, she said it emphasizes the value in each and every human.
“It is not enough to have a good heart … we are called to act,” Ms. Warren said. “We are on the moral side of history.”
Here are some Bible verses Warren may want to peruse:
“Truly children are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward” (Psalm 127:3)
“You knit me in my mother’s womb . . . nor was my frame unknown to you when I was made in secret” (Psalm 139:13,15)
“You have been my guide since I was first formed . . . from my mother’s womb you are my God” (Psalm 22:10-11).
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” (Jeremiah 1:5)
Jesus replied, “You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony.” (Matthew 19:18)
“God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27)
“Be fertile and multiply” (Genesis 1:28)
