A few days after the Democrats’ November defeat, Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings suggested that the party needed a "come to Jesus" moment.
His colleagues seem to have taken him literally. Former Indiana Representative Tim Roemer, who is running for chairman of the Democratic Party, could be heard arguing that "Jesus talks more about the concern for the poor" than he talks about gays and abortions." [Source]
So this is who the Democrat’s tout as being pro-life. Somebody who can not properly order the preferential treatment of the poor with abortion. I guess it is no surprise that politician are not apt theologians, but to use the argument of what Jesus mentions in the Gospels as how to order a legislative agenda shows a deep misunderstanding. To go by this standard they would have to drop incest, rape, minimum wage laws since they didn’t warrant Gospel mentions either. If Roemer does become DNC chair it will probably be much like pro-life Harry Reid whose first act as Minority leader was to rip Justice Thomas, one of the few pro-life judges on the court.
