Nice Try, Religious People.

See if you can spot the flaw in their reasoning:

Leaders of the group, called the Interfaith Fellowship for Universal Health Care, met with Lieberman on Monday but said he maintained his opposition to the public option.

Their latest attempt to lobby the senator will appear in newspapers across the state today, an advertisement featuring a letter from Norwalk Rabbi Joseph Ron Fish describing the imperative of multiple faiths to seek the welfare of everyone, particularly the meek and vulnerable. The advertisement includes the signatures of 240 Connecticut religious leaders and will argue that Lieberman must support “real reform” as a matter of conscience, according to the group.

(…)

One religious leader, the Rev. Joshua Mason Pawelek, minister of the Unitarian Universalist Society in Manchester, said he hopes the advertisement, along with the work of other groups lobbying Lieberman, will convince the senator to reconsider his position on the public option.

“Hopefully he will get the message that his constituency … supports health care reform,” Pawelek said during a conference call with reporters Wednesday. “Hopefully he would understand that and have his heart moved and change his mind.”

Joe’s constituency isn’t the people of Connecticut, it’s Aetna and the health insurance industry.  You know, the people his wife is a professional lobbyist for?

    I was thinking more along the lines of “matter of [Lieberman’s] conscience”. Asserting that he has a conscience to appeal to is a whale of a false premise.

    Yes, this is also fail.
