RUSH: We’ve got Lurch, John Kerry. I just learned this this morning, folks. Grab audio sound bite number thirty. This one, I just learned this morning, but this happened last Wednesday at the State Department. While all this stuff was going on with ISIS and ISIL, and everyone waiting with bated breath over Obama’s announcement to grant amnesty to however many millions of illegals that are lurking and living in the shadows, all of a sudden John Kerry at the State Department, appointed Shaarik Zafar to be the new special representative to Muslim communities — as though we don’t have enough “outreach” to Muslim communities.
Get this. I didn’t know this.
KERRY: Confronting climate change is, in the long run, one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid out in the Scriptures clearly beginning in Genesis.
RUSH: Wait a minute!
KERRY: The Muslim —
RUSH: He’s citing the Bible? A liberal Democrat? Whatever happened to “separation of church and state”? Whatever happened to getting rid of the “social issues”? I heard that a bunch of times last week, too. “The Republicans are never gonna win! They gotta get rid of the social issues, Rush.” Everywhere I go, everybody who claims to be a Republican, says, “You gotta get rid of the social issues!”
Well, really? Here comes Kerry: Global warming and Genesis? The Bible? Take this sound bite back to the top, Mike. I didn’t say, “Stop the tape!” but you stopped the tape. (interruption) Well, I said, “Wait a minute,” but that’s not, “Stop the tape!” I was just talking to myself. Anyway, hit it from the top again.
KERRY: Confronting climate change is, in the long run, one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid out in the Scriptures clearly beginning in Genesis. And Muslim majority countries are among the most vulnerable.
RUSH: Oh no.
KERRY: Our response to this challenge ought to be rooted in a sense of stewardship of earth, and for me and for many of us here today, that responsibility comes from God.
RUSH: I don’t believe… I don’t believe I heard that! I don’t believe what I just heard. So it’s okay to cite the Bible. It’s okay to broom the separation of church and state when talking about global warming outreach with Muslims. This was at a special ceremony in Washington last Wednesday about this global warming business, and it’s supposed man-made causes.
But then he claims it’s the United States Biblical responsibility to confront climate change to help protect vulnerable Muslim-majority countries! Uh… (laughing) Folks! I mean, the utter… From the left’s standpoint, the utter hypocrisy of this, to cite the Bible as a reason, and global warming as the reason we must reach out and protect vulnerable Muslim majorities? The Bible commands the United States to join Muslim nations in this cause?
Twilight Zone time!
