What’s Christianity like? Well, one thing’s for sure: It ain’t like bein’ pro-life.
At least not according to Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.
On Thursday, the 2020 hopeful — who’s not doing so well in the polls (and stinkin’ it up in this category) — made quite the statement at the Georgia State Capitol, among a throng of pro-choice lawmakers and activists:
“If you are a person of the Christian faith, one of the tenets of our faith is free will. One of the tenets of our democracy is that we have a separation of church and state, and under no circumstances are we supposed to be imposing our faith on other people. And I think this is an example of that effort.”
I’d like to take a moment and point out that, irrespective of any political issue, that statement made absolutely no logical sense.
Kirsten gave a three-step answer to America’s abortion woes, as reported by CBS:
“Codify abortion across the country, end the Hyde amendment, which bans federal funding for abortion, and guarantee reproductive healthcare in every state.”
There’s one immediate problem with that: approximately half the people in America don’t want to do it. Because outside of Kirsten’s political bubble, many people — that would be, a whole lotta women, incidentally — are pro-life.
And not just women, but Christian women. If Kirsten wants to win over the undecided, she’s gonna have to do better. But maybe that isn’t her goal. Perhaps she’s shooting only for those on the far Left, who otherwise might prefer one of these:
It’s a heck of a gallery.
2020’s gonna be interesting — if there’s a turnout, that is. For all we know, hordes of Democratic voters might not make it to the booth — all the country’s Christians may be too busy getting abortions.
