Regarding comment that Obama is looking for empathy as one of the qualities in a Supreme Court Judge to replace Souter , Right wing talk show hosts Michael Medved gave some Biblical advice. Obama Should Listen to Leviticus: Don't Confuse Justice and Charity

Now, Michael Medved interprets the Pentateuch like dogs sew. He's, well, he's an idiot. But here's the gist of it:

The core mistake of liberalism involves the confusion of charity and justice ... 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 truth is that the Bible - both Old and New Testament--views compassion as a personal obligation rather than a public priority for governmental or judicial policy ... [Obama] specifically indicated he wanted a judge with a "heart" for the poor and downtrodden, and who would concentrate on their specific interests and needs--in other words, precisely the sort of jurist prohibited by Leviticus.

He presumably is interpreting that side comment Jesus made on the cross about today you will be with me in paradise to really mean, today, you will be with others in hell. You should have pulled yourself up by the bootstraps when you had the chance, like… oh…. Herod or Pilate.
