During a recent CNN presidential town hall event, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren went down a rabbit trail that I believe will cost her in the bigger picture. The CNN-sponsored event at which she appeared where she spoke to the Human Rights Campaign Foundation gave her the open microphone to bash Christian men. By way of a contrast to her support of LGBTQ issues, she insulted men of Christian faith with the implication that no woman would be interested in a man who doesn’t support gay marriage, and especially if he believes in God.
What’s so peculiar about all of that is that on other occasions, she has spoken of a certain measure of divinity that resides in each of us. The more we listen to her, the more it seems that she is proving herself worthy of the Democrat party. Depending on the audience, she says whatever it takes to be well-received by that particular gathering. That is one of the most classic earmarks of Democrats. Babble long enough, and maybe you can baffle them with the amount of BS that comes out. No matter the issue, they stick a finger in the air to see which way the wind blows and change course accordingly.
This from the Daily Wire:
Morgan Cox, Chair of the Human Rights Campaign’s Board of Directors, asked Warren, “Let’s say you’re on the campaign trail and you’re approached—” Warren interrupted, “I have been.” Cox finished, “You have been, yes. And a supporter approaches you and says, ‘Senator, I’m old-fashioned, and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.’ What is your response?”
Warren responded with a sexist remark, saying: “Well, I’m going to assume it’s a guy who said that. And I’m gonna say, ‘Then just marry one woman.’”
“I’m cool with that,” Warren continued. “Assuming you can find one.”
“The hatefulness, frankly, always really shocked me,” Warren continued in her attacks on people of faith. “Especially for people of faith because I think the foundation is the worth of every single human being. And I get people may make decisions for themselves that are different than the decisions other people make, but by golly, those are decisions about you; they are not decisions that tell other people what they can and cannot do.”
Warren’s contempt for men of faith would seem to be at odds with her take on the parable in the Bible of the sheep and the goats; she told Reverend Bernice King, the daughter of the Dr, Martin Luther King Jr., “And the way I hear that is that, 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, but that inside there’s something holy, in every single person. And the second thing he’s saying, is: ‘And I call on you to act, not to sit back and proclaim your faith, but to get up and to make a difference.’ And the third thing I hear him saying, is: ‘And it is every one of you. When the final day comes, that every one of you will be judged by what you did for the God in others’.”
