Sen. Graham Says Jesus Inspired Him to Vote for Kagan
Fox News ^ | August 6, 2010

(VIDEO AT LINK)

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said that Jesus’s Golden Rule inspired him to vote to confirm Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court and suggested it would be a good thing for his Senate colleagues to also ponder Jesus’s words as they prepared to vote on Kagan.

“It is divine in its orientation, and it is probably something that would serve us all well if we thought about it at moments such as this,” Sen. Graham said on the Senate floor, as he pointed his colleagues to the Golden Rule and counseled them to look to the wisdom of “somebody far wiser than I am” as they cast their votes on Kagan.(continued)

I can't believe this guy. Kagan is going to be pro partial birth abortion, pro gay marriage, etc. Jesus if for all this?

Lindsey is cracking up?

It’s peculiar that no matter what nonsense this idiot espouses, he draws the backing of SC Republican voters.

He's a fellow traveler of Kagan's.....he sucks d*ck, she eats p*ssy -- it's a topsy turvy kinda thing. They're on the same page, in the strangest sort of ways.

That is without, the LAMEST excuse for voting for someone I ever heard.

What a dipstick. This guy is a Senator? He should be studying at Melwood.

This clown is a complete idiot.

He thinks he can throw Jesus in to appeal to South Carolina voters. South Carolina voters won’t be sending this limp-wrist back to DC after his next run.

Funny how the commie Libs like Graham and Rangel have turned to God and Jesus during this time of desperation. I guess November has them scared to death. Lindsey may not be running for anything but the thought of all those mean conservatives coming to the District of Corruption to clean the joint up has to have the boy messin’ his pants.

He may not be cracking up; he must understand how liberal SC Republican primary voters really are. There is no amount of Graham foolishness that they won’t tolerate. It’s all his name ID.

You know, I can use the “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” the other way, too. I don’t want Kagan’s will and views imposed on me, so I don’t want them imposed on other people, either.

There, how do you like that, Gramnesty?

Hmmmmm, Elena Kagan herself does not cares a whit about what Christ said or meant, she is an atheistic Jew, thus Lindsey Graham is saying let us install her, kind of like Herod and the Pharisees, and refute what Jesus preaches, so that Government, my Government, can preempt His teaching.

How more obvious can it get?

Lindsey has just recently been acting like a fool.

The last election (2008), his party (GOP) did not challenge his with a well known repub primary opponent. I guess at that time the prevailing thought may have been "he may be flakey, but he is our flake".

Not next time. 2014 he will have a formidible repub challenge. His record is well known and he has insulted his base, and he is loathed here.

In the meantime, the people of SC, who are basically apolitical although mostly conservative, are screwed.

Hell, I tried to send him packing back in 2008, both in the primary and in the general election.

He's nuzzled the hindquarters of McLame, Hitlery, and Oblabla enough to raise the Tea Party's ire, though. That's the kiss of death even for an incumbent here in SC. We're sick and damned tired of the good ol' boys thinking they have our votes no matter how they treat us.

Besides, with the votes Ms. Graham is courting, he might be talking about HAY-ZEUS Jesus instead of JEE-ZUS Jesus.

So, we can just chuck out all of the principles that went into creating a Constitutional republic and reduce all decisions made by our government representatives to an aphorism for how to treat our fellow man instead of considering the requirements of the job or the merits of the applicant?

If we are going to reduce such decisions to the Golden Rule I would have to reject Kagan. I would not want anyone to promote me to a position of responsibility that I was unfit to perform, to an institution I had acted subversively against in the past and had hostile feelings for the underlying principles I was being elevated to defend. It would be no favor to me to do that.

Frankly, I think Linseed is perverting the meaning of the Golden Rule in the same way that Pelosi has perverted Catholic doctrine on abortion. They are turning the meaning of things on its head in order to promote a secular humanist ideology with a Jesus logo pasted on it. Not unlike Black Liberation Theology.
