Biblical illiteracy in the News, Moses Nominated?

Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will begin confirmation hearings July 13, shrugged off the GOP concerns being raised about Sotomayor, saying some in the GOP were going to oppose any Obama pick – “even if the president had nominated Moses.”

Biblical literates would never nominate Moses for confirmation to any office.

Exodus12So he looked this way and that, and when he saw there was no one around, he struck down the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.

Talk about skeletons in the closet!  Moses had one literally buried in the sand!

Exodus 3:11But Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt?”

I does not seem that Moses had the self confidence to stand up to scrutiny.  One answer like that and the committee would vote him out.

Exodus 4:10Then Moses said to the LORD, “Please, Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither recently nor in time past, nor since You have spoken to Your servant; for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.”

Public speaking skills are necessary for a appointee.  Moses was sorely lacking in this.

Exodus 4:14Then the anger of the LORD burned against Moses, and He said, “Is there not your brother Aaron the Levite? I know that he speaks fluently. And moreover, behold, he is coming out to meet you; when he sees you, he will be glad in his heart.

A nominee must be expected to stand on his own, not have a partner to speak for him for him.

Exodus 4:27Now the LORD said to Aaron, “Go to meet Moses in the wilderness ” So he went and met him at the mountain of God and kissed him.

Oh well, there goes the conservative vote.   Looks like Moses would not have had a chance!

LOL Poor Moses wouldn’t be welcome in many churches today either. (Wait, that’s really sad.)

Moses is the law giver. Democrats want a law distorter.

For them, equal outcomes (un-American ideal) trumps equal opportunity (very American ideal).

Moses was a caucasoid Jew.
No chance he would be nominated.
