Jeff Sessions Not Sure If Secular Americans Understand Truth
At Sessions’ confirmation hearing earlier today, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) asked the Attorney General nominee if he believes a secular person has the same understanding of the truth as a religious individual.
Well, I’m not sure.
Sessions’ answer is alarming.
As an afterthought, after saying he was “not sure” if secular people understand the truth as well as religious people, Sessions added:
We’re going to treat anybody with different views fairly and objectively.
While this nod towards fairness may placate some, the fact is Sessions is indicating that secular views are “different views” – the implication being that these secular views are different from (and inferior to) Christian views.
