On Wednesday Hillary spoke out once again against the House bill to prevent and punish illegal immigration, only this time she claimed she had God on her side.
Mrs. Clinton said the proposed legislation is "mean-spirited" and "certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures, because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself."
Her argument that the immigration measure is un-Christian echoes the sentiments of notoriously liberal Catholic Cardinal Roger Mahoney of Los Angeles, who recently advised his flock to disobey the bill if it became law.
Hillary has distorted the Good Book for her own liberal purposes before, most notably in January 2000, when she criticized Rudy Giuliani’s promise to clean up New York City streets by saying "We are celebrating the birth of a homeless child…Well, tonight in New York there will be no room at the inn for thousands and thousands," and just last year, she mentioned the Holy Family while debating proposed spending cuts: "I grew up loving the Christmas season, telling the story over and over again about how Mary and Joseph found themselves with no place to stay and how Jesus was born in the manger. Many people say: Look, they were shut out, left behind. We are shutting out and leaving behind a lot of our children with these budget decisions. It is wrong."
Just as Hillary using any sort of biblical references to support her coercive and irresponsible government policies is wrong.
