Who would Jesus sexually assault? Fox News host Greg Gutfeld compares Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to Jesus Christ.
In a deplorable display of conservative hubris Fox News host Greg Gutfeld compared Brett Kavanaugh to Jesus Christ, while claiming that the Trump nominee’s path to becoming a Supreme Court justice is comparable to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
Speaking earlier this week during a segment on the Fox News program The Five, Gutfeld suggested Kavanaugh was being crucified by Democrats, because Democratic senators had requested a thorough FBI investigation into credible allegations that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted multiple women as a young man.

We know politics is poison. And I am an agnostic when it comes to religion, but I know one thing. In my 12 years of Catholic Church, crucifixion was an important event, because it was designed to establish a wall between justice and mob rule.
Christ died so that the mob wouldn’t survive. Right? He got there. He died for everybody’s sins. What the Democrats have tried to do is tear down the wall between justice and mob rule. They decided to crucify someone once again. That’s what’s wrong.
Gutfeld is not alone in his willingness to give Kavanaugh a pass for sexually assaulting women as a young man. A recent survey shows that 48% of white evangelicals would support Kavanaugh even if he did sexually assault Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and/or his other accusers.
Leading evangelist Franklin Graham claims the attempted sexual assault by Kavanaugh was not a crime, arguing that Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations of attempted sexual assault by Kavanaugh are “irrelevant.”
The influential son of the late Billy Graham said that even if Ford’s allegation of sexual assault is true, it shouldn’t matter. Graham argues that the criminal conduct shouldn’t matter because Kavanaugh “respected” Ford’s objections by breaking off the assault, and not raping the 15-year-old high school student.
Bottom line: Fox News host Greg Gutfeld compares Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to Jesus Christ, and nearly half of conservative Christians don’t care if Kavanaugh sexually assaulted multiple women as a young man, and lied about it later as a nominee for the Supreme Court.
