Single-digit Dem takes second shot at preaching

Kirsten GillibrandA presidential candidate known for making awkward statements is making headlines with a new one: pro-life laws do not reflect Christianity.

Speaking to reporters at a news conference at the Georgia state house, U.S Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) suggested that laws that restrict access to abortion are “against Christian faith,” CBS News reported.

She went on to suggest that “free will” is a tenet of Christianity but separation of church and state is a tenet of U.S. democracy, and “under no circumstances” should people impose their faith on others, she said. 

“And I think this is an example of that effort,” she said of Georgia’s new “heartbeat” bill that brought it national attention.

Responding to the senator’s statement, Jim Sedlak of American Life League points out a person of faith has free will to do right or wrong, but the Bible addresses that with a clear guideline: murder is wrong.

“Clearly the Christian faith says, ‘Thou shalt not kill’ and sometimes translated, ‘Thou shalt not murder.’ Either one of those terms apply to killing a preborn baby in the womb,” he tells OneNewsNow.

Sedlak, Jim (American Life League)Gillibrand has been mocked for her clumsy attempt at preaching to a black audience at a Martin Luther King Jr. event and, more recently, for claiming to speak for feminism at a far-left conference.   

She is currently polling under one percent among the field of 20-plus Democratic candidates. 

Sedlak says defending life with scripture is not even debatable: the Ten Commandments predate even the physical appearance of Jesus on earth, he says, and nearly all world religions respect life and condemn murder.

“And there is no one more innocent,” he says, “than the preborn child.”
