Religous Republicans

Friday, July 22, 2005

I just couldn't let this one slip by: yesterday Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) spoke on the nomination process of Judge John Roberts. Speaking of the senate confirmation process that Judge Roberts will go through, Mr. Hatch had this to say about democratic questions of the nominee:

"It's a little like biblical Pharisees, you know, who
basically are always trying to undermine Jesus Christ. You know, it goes on the
same way. If they can catch him in something, they can then criticize and the
outside groups will go berserk."

I could be reading too much into this, but is Sen. Hatch comparing himself and other republicans to Jesus Christ? Is he then attempting to degrade democrats as people who don't love Jesus Christ? It amounts to nothing more than another classic example of the religious middle-aged white men who pull the strings trying to drive another wedge into the class-divide.


Isn't Orrin Hatch actually Jesus Christ? Well, if not actually, he's a better Christian, for sure, than any Democrat he knows. As for the rest of us, forget it, we're all going to burn in hell while Orrin drinks Shirley Temples with God himself.
