The Worldnutdaily decided to do an interview with Rep. Steve King “that focused on faith, not politics.” The results are rather predictable, with the standard rhetoric about America being based on a “Judeo-Christian foundation” and similar nonsense.
“I think if you are going to reverse engineer America, go back through history … you could not build America without Christianity,” he told WND reporter Taylor Rose is an interview that focused on faith, not politics.
“Whether it shows up on our sleeve or in our heart, it’s what will restore our nation,” he said.
The congressman explained that the rule of law on which free societies function today is traceable to the Ten Commandments, given to Moses by God.
“The rule of law was established in Scripture, under Moses,” he explained.
Both Roman and Greek civilizations adopted the concept, and they spread it through the world.
One has to wonder what kind of history class King took in high school. The Greeks adopted the Mosaic law and spread it throughout the world? When did that supposedly happen? Which ancient Greek thinkers pointed to the Mosaic law as the source of their ideas? And no, Moses did not establish the rule of law. Other civilizations before and after had their own legal ideas. Has King ever heard of Ur-Nammu or Hammurabi? Does he think the Chinese, Egyptians and Sumerians had no set of laws to govern with? This is what happens when the only book you read is the Bible, you’re utterly ignorant of the rest of the world.
He said he was debating liberal Alan Colmes one time on radio over the issue of whether the U.S. is Christian. King argued that it is and told Colmes he would prove.
Citing a scenario of a man accidentally running over a neighbor’s dog, he listed the expected actions: an explanation that it was not intentional; an apology and expression of sorrow; and a response of forgiveness.
Those actions express the biblical principles of confession, repentance, forgiveness and redemption, he said.
“This is a Christian society.”
Uh, yeah. Because non-Christian people would never have thought of saying they’re sorry. Seriously, who could possibly find this argument anything but laughable?
