Sen. Elizabeth Warren may be surging in the Democrat presidential primary polls, but she is doing little to court the support of Christians.
Warren participated last week in a town hall sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and CNN. Morgan Cox, chair of the Human Rights Campaign’s board of directors, asked Warren, “Let’s say you’re on the campaign trail and a supporter approaches you and says, ‘Senator, I’m old-fashioned, and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.’ What is your response?”
According to Daily Wire, Warren replied, “Well, I’m going to assume it’s a guy who said that. And I’m gonna say, ‘Then just marry one woman.’ Assuming you can find one.”
Later in the forum, she expanded her criticism to all people of faith.
“The hatefulness, frankly, always really shocked me,” she said. “Especially for people of faith, because I think the foundation is the worth of every single human being. And I get people may make decisions for themselves that are different than the decisions other people make, but by golly, those are decisions about you; they are not decisions that tell other people what they can and cannot do.”
Warren shared her view of faith with the Rev. Bernice King, the daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“And the way I hear that is that, he’s saying to us first, there’s God in every one of us,” she said. “There’s Jesus in every one of us. However you see it in your religion, but that inside there’s something holy, in every single person.
“And the second thing he’s saying, is: ‘And I call on you to act, not to sit back and proclaim your faith, but to get up and to make a difference.’
“And the third thing I hear him saying, is: ‘And it is every one of you. When the final day comes, that every one of you will be judged by what you did for the God in others’.”
Warren also supports the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would protect access to abortion from “bans on abortion prior to viability that are a direct violation of constitutional rights confirmed by Roe v. Wade, requirements that doctors provide medically inaccurate and, at times, false information to people seeking abortion care, and restrictions on the ability to safely access medication abortion in the earliest weeks of pregnancy.”
