Janice Hahn Walks Out Of Event After James Dobson Calls Obama The 'Abortion President'

Janice Hahn Walks Out Of Event After James Dobson Calls Obama The 'Abortion President'

“What Dobson seems to forget is that by our Constitution, there is a separation between Church and State. He also forgets, that within this country, not every one is a Christian nor have to follow his Christian doctrine. Not everyone believes as he does about the abortion issue and it does not need to be shoved down the people's throat. Not every Christian believes his his philosophy about abortion as well. Many of us believe that life begins at birth, not while as a parasite while as a fetus. We are a nation of many faiths and many beliefs. Let us keep it that way.”

“It is not cruel or unusual punishment to give convicted murderer the same fate and heinious death as his victim”

“...well, perhaps in your personal opinion, it isn't. But in American law it certainly can be...and in the Oklahoma case, it would very likely be deemed so in a court of law.”

“The death penalty is meant to be a punishment, just not a deterrment to save the State money. It does not deter crimes, but it is meant to punish those that do commit a severe crime. Those tlhat take a life must be ready to sacrifice his/her own life. It is mostly the goody goody two shoes that demand that the death penalty should be humane, but whatever happened to that the punishment should fit the crime. I believe that the sentence should be carried out within one year of one appeals court ruling or one year from a supreme court ruling. Non of these continuous stays issued by sitting judges. Too much politics are involved then. Those that are convicted on circumstantial evidence should not receive the death penalty. Only those where there is definite proof.”

“So what does that have to do with the price of tea in China. One does not have to have been in a country before serving our country as a diplomat. The majority of ambassadors do not even speak the language of the country that they are serving in. Do you remember when the childhood star, Shirley Temple served as ambassador to an African nation. The skill needed is to ba a diplomat and to be able to communicate with others. The majority of this is through an interpreter. Get the H*ll off the man's back and get pragmatic.”

“I do believe in scriptorial divorce as the only true divorce. Others are only legal divorces as accepted by the American judicial system. I don't condone them but in today's society, tolerated.. If memory is corrtect, the marriage to a non-believer is taboo in several religions, primarily the Catholic faith and the Jewish faith. I cannot remember Jesus saying .that a believer cannot marry a non-believer, at least in the King James version of the Bible, that I still read.”

“I hate to disappoint you since you have not read our Constitution, but you will find out that the Constitution does define treason in Article Three. It is the only crime that the Constitution does define.”

“I'm sorry. My comment wasn't clear. I most certainly have read the constitution, more times than I like to admit. What I mean is that the constitution does not specify that what Snowden did was treason.

"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort."

He certainly didn't levy war against us, and it would be a stretch to say he gave aid and comfort to our enemies. He exposed an unconstitutional activity. That's not treason to the US.”

“Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, OR CLASSIFIED INFORMATION. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given. Snowden is guilty as all He*l and should face charges of TREASON.”
