Three GOP Senate Candidates: Judges Must Follow Biblical Law

by: Ned Twyman




Merriam-Webster defines cognitive dissonance as  “psychological conflict resulting from incongruous beliefs and attitudes held simultaneously.” Apparently, three of the four Iowa Republican candidates for the US Senate define it as standard operating procedure.


During a forum hosted by The Family Leader, a conservative Christian organization known for its opposition to marriage equality, the Senate hopefuls attempted to outdo each other in promising to subvert the Constitution. The three aspiring theocrats confirmed that each would block any federal judicial nominee that did not have a “biblical view of justice.”


Teabagging blowhard Eric Erickson moderated the forum and asked each candidate about what their criteria would be in confirming federal judges. Sam Clovis said that any nominee must be able to “explain to me natural law and natural rights.” Considering that this is the same Sam Clovis that recently claimed that the only reason that President Obama hasn’t been impeached is that he is black, this seems to be an impossibly tall order.


Matt Whitaker raised the bar, saying that any prospective judges must be “people of faith.” Not to be outdone,  State Sen. Joni Ernst said that potential judges must possess an “understanding where the Constitution came from and our laws, and they all did come from God.” Obviously, these mouth-breathing dimwits are unfamiliar with Article VI of the constitution:


“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
