David French, 2012: Supporting the Biden Presidential Ticket, Which Makes Abortion a Sacrament, is a Grievous Sin
David French, 2020: Supporting the Biden Presidential Ticket, Which Makes Abortion a Sacrament, Is Pretty Cool

Speaking of c#ckery.

Here's what Pastor French wrote in 2012:

As Mitt Romney surges in the polls, Barack Obama and his running mate are now launching a renewed bid by women voters, this time targeting abortion both explicitly and implicitly.

First he links a video making that explicit case. I assume -- the video is no longer visible.

Now, here's the implicit (Joe Biden calling abortion simply an "operation")

Again, the video is missing. It's an 8 year old post. Going by how French describes it, it's video of Joe Biden referring to abortion as merely an "operation" like an appendectomy.

Note the now-legendary passion in Biden's voice. He (and President Obama) believe in protecting abortion to their very "core."

It is now beyond clear that if a Christian wants to support Barack Obama and Joe Biden, they have to be content with supporting a ticket that not only supports abortion "rights", it supports taxpayer funding of abortions, and it does so as a "core" value. Simply put, a Christian who takes such a position or lends even the slightest support to such a position -- a position that, to be clear, seeks to not just sanction but subsidize the intentional taking of hundreds of thousands of human lives -- is committing a grievous sin.

Here's what she says now -- basically, "Everything that other guy (me) just said is bullshit."

I don't often post the trolling, angry tweets that I receive on a daily basis, but I thought I’d make an exception to launch a longer, important discussion that we simply don’t see enough in American Christianity: How do politics impact abortion rates in the United States? It has been almost 50 years since Roe v. Wade was decided. What have we learned?

Or let’s put it another way, since I'm not voting for Donald Trump in 2020, is this tweeter correct? Will I have the "blood of dead unborn children" on my hands?

I’m going to give a short answer to this question and a long answer. The short answer is no. The long answer, which is going to dive deep into the legal, political, and cultural realities of the abortion debate, isn’t likely to please any partisans. So buckle up.

"If you don't like my new answer, it's just because you're a 'partisan.' "

He starts his "reasoning" -- reasoning backwards from the conclusion he wants to reach -- with this stunner:

1. Presidents don't really matter.

Except that they do, which he then admits a bit.

And except that they nominate judges, who are the ones that do matter.

But NeverTrumpers are constantly pretending judges don't matter.

"But Gorsuch" is their favorite callow put-down.

So here we have Pastor French reversing himself, Jen-Rubin-like, precisely 180 degrees from a previous position on what he pretends is a paramount issue for him.

I do enjoy how Pastor French's supposed Sacred Values and Eternal Principles so readily twist and contort, in a polyamorously perverse way, to support whatever hyperpartisan position she's taking this week.

People talk about Jennifer Rubin as if she's an exceptional case in NeverTrumpism.

She's not. They're all exactly like this.
