Remember when Mitch said, “One of my proudest moments was when I told Obama, ‘You will not fill this Supreme Court vacancy.’” And his biggest disappointment? “Our failure to address the entitlement issue,” i.e., gutting SSI, Medicare & Medicaid. REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!
The Evangelicals are one issue voters. They see Kavanaugh as being able to overturn Roe, even though he said that Roe was “settled law.” In the past settled law has been overturned. Case in point, the Voting Rights Act. I say shame on those Evangelicals, to want someone with a questionable past, admitted heavy drinking and allegations of sexual assault on the SCOTUS! Have the FBI recheck Kavanaugh’s past. A person on the SCOTUS, a lifetime appointment must be completely above reproach. The saying, “the end justifies the means”, meaning that if a goal is morally essential enough, any method of achieving it is acceptable.
“White evangelical character” has already been revealed; this is just further confirmation. The mask of ‘values voters’ has been torn away. White evangelicals care solely about political power to impose their rule over everyone else. They care nothing for the so-called Christian values they claim to champion. It was all a ruse. They will literally support ANYONE who promises to put them in charge of America.
Moral failure: A disturbing new poll shows that 48% of white evangelicals would support Kavanaugh even if he did sexually assault Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
Citing data from a recent poll, Vox reports:
Forty-eight per cent of white evangelicals say that embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed even if the allegations of sexual assault against him are true.
Friendly Atheist notes:
According to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll taken last week, 48% of white evangelical Christians say that Kavanaugh should be confirmed to the Supreme Court even if the charge of sexual assault is true.
Marist asked 1,000 respondents from September 22 to 24 whether they would support Kavanaugh if the allegations by Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh assaulted her at a high school party decades ago, were found to be true.
Support for Kavanaugh’s confirmation falls along partisan lines with 12 per cent of Democrats and 54 per cent of Republicans saying yes. Kavanaugh has consistently denied the allegations, as well as the allegations of at least three other accusers, whose more recent allegations came out too late to be included in the poll.
The poll results are alarming and demonstrate a profound poverty of both intellect and character in almost half of all white evangelicals. Yet this moral failure is not much of a surprise.
Leading evangelist Franklin Graham claims the attempted sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was not a crime.
Claiming that Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations of attempted sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are “irrelevant,” the influential son of the late Billy Graham said that even if Ford’s allegation of sexual assault is true, it shouldn’t matter.
Graham argues that the criminal conduct shouldn’t matter because Kavanaugh “respected” Ford’s objections by breaking off the assault, and not raping the 15-year-old high school student.
Bottom line: A new poll shows that 48% of white evangelicals would support Kavanaugh even if he did sexually assault Dr Christine Blasey Ford.
These “evangelicals” don’t even come close to being Christian. The Early Christians Were Focused on Solidarity Across Race, Class and Gender. Then Things Changed. See my post from TIME magazine today. You will see how far from Christian they have traveled. They are not a Cult of the Devil.
