The Democrat Speaker of Kentucky’s House of Representatives, Greg Stumbo, was on a roll last night as it became obvious that Matt Bevin had not only won but had effectively curb-stomped the Democrat, Jack Conway. To hear him tell it, it was a rejection of God Himself.
“Let me tell you,” Stumbo said. “I am going to admit I have not read the holy book from front to finish like some of you probably have, but my reading of our Bible shows that the word Republican or Democrat isn’t used, and people sometimes ask me … ‘What would Jesus have been if he were alive? Would he have been a Democrat or a Republican?’
“Democrat,” audience members said.
“I don’t know,” Stumbo said. “Nobody knows. The Bible doesn’t tell us that, does it? But I believe the Bible is a book of parables … I don’t know whether Jesus would have been a Democrat or Republican, and nobody else does, but I know this. He was a carpenter and a teacher, and I bet every carpenter and teacher I know are pretty good Democrats.
“And the other thing I know is that if in fact the Bible is a book of parables, like I believe it is, think about this: Mary did not ride an elephant into Bethlehem that night. So you go home and you go to your church and you tell people, I’m a Democrat, I’m a God-fearing Democrat. I’m a Democrat that believes in the principles of the Bible that become the principles of our party, that this wealth accumulation in America has to cease, that people have to have a right to have an equal education opportunity, that people have a right to have health care, that people have a right to enjoy the American Dream, and we will rebuild this party starting right here in Kentucky.”
I can only believe that either alcohol and/or narcotics were involved in this. The only other explanation is some form of mental illness.
No one is deserving of humiliation more than anyone who would claim their political party embodies very essence of Christ. When your party makes a fetish of pissing on the Ten Commandments and the Gospels it becomes offensive. Not to put too fine a point on it, the Democrats are the party of infanticide, they are the party of sodomy, they are the party of covetousness, they are the party of theft, the are the party of sexual licentiousness. I’m not saying the GOP is holy by any stretch of the imagination but, Merciful Heaven, we haven’t accepted actively hostility to Christianity as one of our principles.
