Defend the Good Samaritan

I formally ask Hillary Clinton to apologize for her statement equating the Good Samaritan and Jesus Christ with criminal activity.

Clinton criticized the immigration bill proposed in the last Congress, dominated by Republicans. That legislation would have penalized those who help illegal immigrants. "I said it would have criminalized the good Samaritan. It would have criminalized Jesus Christ," she said.


First, it is already against the law to "help" immigrants by hiring them. This seems to be the part of the law that Hillary is referring to. So to begin with, according to Hillary the good Samaritan and Jesus are already breaking the law and we are only going to punish them more. Second, I don't think that the good Samaritan or Jesus would want us to tempt and abet people to break the law. Indeed, because of the strong link of employment to illegal immigration it is very hard not to implicate the employer as an accomplice to the crime. It is just wrong to say that Jesus and the Good Samaritan would help illegal immigrants in this way. Would they give them a cup of cold water? Would they assist them to come in legally? Would they offer work to those who were in need, and immigrants from another country? Absolutely. And I hope I would too. But not if Ceasar says it is against the law.

On a side note:

Why is it ok for Hillary to say in essence: "Jesus hates this bill, and I therefore oppose it" and evangelicals cannot say "Jesus hates abortion, and therefore I oppose it" without the left screaming "Separation of church and state!" and "imposing your religious beliefs on the rest of us!"?

Whitewashed tombs come to mind.

Like I've always noticed... they (the dems) can dish it out but they can't take it themselves.

Don't you just love it when the liberals dust off Jesus and twist His words to justify socialism and pacifism? Jesus was never an illegal alien either.

But did you expect anything less from Hitlary? I despise this woman with a passion.

Are you suggesting Jesus never broke the law? I think you better go reread your bible.

Peter,

I think you should not speak of Jesus until you TRUELY learn His teachings. To talk in one breath about Him, then in the next speak of how you despise someone?? Shame on you...

Anon,

Grow a pair and use a name rather than being a coward hiding behind anonymity. Bok-bok-bok!

Hitlary is the worst thing thatcould ever happen to this country. A truly, despicable, evil person.
