Another reason for liberals to hate Leviticus

If I can do this without delving into the specific implications of any one Bible verse or the differences between Old and New Testaments, Judaism and Christianity, I give you this Michael Medved column:

Leviticus 19:15 declares: "You shall not commit a perversion of justice: you shall not favor the poor and you shall not honor the great, with righteousness shall you judge your fellow."


...the outlook of the left insists upon favoring the poor and the unfortunate—and thereby injecting unfairness and discrimination into the very core of politics and government. Favoring the poor, like favoring the rich, brings unequal treatment based on status, not actions. Justice requires rewarding good behavior, no matter its source, and discouraging and punishing bad actions, no matter who performs them.
Yes, I know, you already posted this, Steve. But it wasn't fair because I couldn't get into Blogger last night.
