In describing her stance on immigration policy during Thursday's Democratic presidential debate, Senator Hillary Clinton dropped a subtly sly Jesus-bomb. Was the namedrop heartfelt and coincidental, or was it simply good planning? Half of those surveyed in a recent poll commissioned by the American Bible Society said they wouldn't vote for a candidate who doesn't believe in God, and a whopping 78% percent of those questioned said they like their candidates citing Scripture. So, you tell me: Is Clinton spouting words or turds?

When the House of Representatives passed the most mean-spirited provision that said, if you were to give any help whatsoever to someone here illegally, you would commit a crime, I stood up and said that would have criminalized the Good Samaritan and Jesus Christ himself.

I have been on record on this against this kind of demagoguery, this mean-spiritedness.

And, you know, it is something that I take very personally, because I have not only worked on behalf of immigrants; I have been working to make conditions better for many years.
