Canadian Senator channels Liberal “Jesus”

From LifeSite:

Senator Marilyn Trenholme Counsell, in comments made during debate of the impending same-sex “marriage” legislation Wednesday, made the astonishing claim that Jesus Christ would have voted in favour of the legislation as she did.

“As a Christian, I often ask myself ‘what would Jesus do?’” she said, reiterating a maxim often heard in Christian circles. She answered her question with, “In this case, in this time, I believe he would say yes.” Trenholme Counsell, as LifeSiteNews.com learned from the Senator’s assistant Rebecca Menard, was originally Baptist but converted to Anglicanism when she was married.

“After all,” the Chrétien-appointed Liberal from New Brunswick claimed, “we have come a long way from Old Testament days when adulterers were put to death; and we have come a long way in our understanding of human sexuality.”

I've never been to Canada, nor have any relatives that I know of, but it seems to me that if this woman can claim to be a Christian, then I can claim to be a Canadian. Where do I go to vote her out of office?

Also, what many of these left-wing-looneys fail to notice is that while Christians call it the Old Testament, Jews call it the Torah. Acting as if the Old Testament were some barbaric rant commanding murder, mayhem and torture in the name of strict obedience would be a pretty low insult to Jews, wouldn't it? Sounds pretty anti-Semitic to me.
