'The Young Turks' Claim Christianity is in Favor of Abortion
Despite their general ambivalence toward all things Jesus, lefties seem to fancy themselves as biblical historians. According to their "interpretation" of the good book, God is a trans, socialist lover of all things Democrat. According to "The Young Turks," he's also super into baby-killing.
See for yourself:
While discussing anti-abortion amendments that passed in Alabama and West Virginia this week, Cenk Uygur, a progressive pundit and founder of The Young Turks, made the case for the Bible actually being “pro-abortion.”
“You’re wrong about your Bible, you’ve been misled, you’ve been lied to,” Uygur said in a segment posted to YouTube yesterday. “Your religious and political leaders have kept you in ignorance. The Bible is actually pro-abortion, that’s a fact.”
He then read off several Bible verses from the book of Numbers, in-which the author writes about aborting a pregnancy if a woman cheats on her husband.
Yep, according to the Young Turks, the sight of babies being ripped apart brings a smile to God's face. Shame on you Christians for getting in the way of God's will.
Admittedly, God had something of a temper back in the day. That's an important detail Pastor Chunk is leaving out. The book of Numbers is in the Old Testament. About 2,000 years ago, Christianity got a 2.0. Hence, the New Testament. No more killing people, no more wrath. Those verses he's quoting are obsolete.
It's funny how leftists call the Bible oppressive, then use it to justify their policies. "Turn your Bible sideways and cram it up your rear. The Christian God is a jealous, wrathful tyrant who oppresses women, fancy lads, and non-believers. Also, he's in favor of gay rights, baby-killing, and single-payer. So, we need to do those things ASAP."
These Young Turks peeps think they're backing Christians into a corner when they go all Bible thumper. Instead, they're only making themselves out to be a pack of biblically illiterate dunces. Maybe if they'd actually read the Bible, as opposed to using it as a substitute for Charmin, they might spare themselves further embarrassment.
