Pastor Robert Jeffress attacked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for claiming President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her back in high school.
During an appearance on Fox News, Jeffress questioned why Ford didn’t come forward years ago when no one knew who Brett Kavanaugh was, and claimed that Democrats don’t actually care about the sexual abuse of women because they support a woman’s legal right to an abortion:
Let me tell you the gross hypocrisy of the Left here. The Democrats feign this concern for the abuse of women.
They say they’re so concerned about that when the real objection to Brett Kavanaugh is that he would restrict, in any way, the murder of 700,000 females in the womb to abortion every year.
That is rank gross hypocrisy and it’s on display for all America to see right now.
The Friendly Atheist notes Jeffress’ hypocrisy:
You would think a Christian pastor would understand that. Jeffress could have offered some words of compassion for Ford. He could’ve been a decent human being. He could’ve just stressed the importance of listening to her before making a judgment call.
Instead, he jumped to the worst-case scenario, implying Ford is a liar who’s colluding with Democrats. It’s the sort of Christian conspiracy theory that is unfortunately accepted by the majority of white evangelicals these days.
