NO! Not at all! Politicians often use the Bible for political gain and are not interested in the truth. They look for an ancient sound bite to convince people of whatever they already believe.

PolitiFact has compiled more than 500 promises that Barack Obama made during the 2008 and 2012 campaigns and is tracking their progress on our Obameter.
Domestic Violence
Psychologist David Adams says it is time to address excuses given by abusers like Ray Rice.
Adams, Co-Founder and Co-Director of Emerge, an abuser education program, says common excuses are: "Alcohol made me do it," "She provoked me," or "I lost control," or "I was under a lot of stress." Even victims may believe the excuse.  Society must be clear that there is no excuse for abuse.
Texas Politics

Many hotly contested Texas races produced many false claims on both sides of the isle. Check out if your candidate is telling the truth.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand D-N.Y.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Renews Push for Senate Vote on Military Sexual Assault
“It’s Congress' responsibility to act as if the brave survivors of sexual assault are our sons, our daughters, our husbands and our lives who are being betrayed by the greatest military on earth.
Charles Angeletti
Professor makes students recite 'Anti-American' pledge of allegiance
Angeletti's strong political statement against Christian and University values by having students pledge allegiance to a racist, homophobic, sexist America that is in the name of Jesus, that hates Communists and women who want to get abortions.
Texas Rights To Life
Texas Right to Life says UT students signed petition to abort babies and,children up to age 5.
This email implies that UT students were hustling up support for legalizing infanticide and child killings. In reality, a visitor briefly collected signatures one day, almost like attempting a trick.
Mark Warner D-VA
Regarding sexual assault against women, "It’s actually safer not to be in college than it is to be in college."
Warner says women students on college campuses are more likely to be sexually assaulted than their peers who don’t seek a higher education. The researchers acknowledged shortcomings with their methodology and said their conclusions were "suggestive."
Marco Rubio
Marco Rubio: Hillary Clinton as President would be a 'Death Blow' to the American people.
Statements were made in an interview with Katie Couric for Yahoo News, saying Clinton's policies are "20th century relics." It was not clear what issues he considered relics. He opposes gay marriage, addressing climate change, many women's issues.
Bishop Thomas Tobin
"Abortions account for 94 percent of the services provided for pregnant women by Planned Parenthood."
Planned Parenthood’s annual report show that the agency conducted 1.1 million pregnancy tests, 3.7 million tests for sexually transmitted diseases, prenatal services, and childbirth classes, among other services, but the agency does not track abortion numbers. The Bishop's figures have no factual basis.
Barack Obama
"Nearly one in five women in America has been a victim of rape or attempted rape."
The number comes from the 2011 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, which was released in September 2014 by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, showing that 19.3 percent of women reported experiences that are considered to be rape or attempted rape under the survey’s guidelines.
Madonna
Madonna says a violent rape at age 19 was too humiliating to report.
Like most victims Madonna, 56, couldn't speak publicly about the rape for over three decades because it was too painful. She told Howard Stern that ape is one of the most grossly underreported crimes in the United States. According to RAINN — the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network — 68 percent of sexual assaults are not reported to police, and there are about 293,000 victims a year.
The Family Foundation
"The United States is one of only seven nations that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks post-fertilization."
PolitiFact cites done by both pro- and anti-abortion rights groups that back up this claim.
Scott Walker
Walker said, If women seeking an abortion see their ultrasound, "the odds are pretty high they're going to keep the baby."
The latest academic study shows that nearly all women proceed with an abortion even after seeing the ultrasound.
Bill Cosby
‘I’m No Longer Afraid’: 35 women tell their stories about being assaulted by Bill Cosby, and the culture that wouldn’t listen.
Cosby admitted in a recently released deposition, to pursuing sex with young women with the aid of Quaaludes, which can render a person functionally immobile. “I used them,” he said, “the same as a person would say, ‘Have a drink.’ ”  In this article, 35 women not only tell about being lured in, drugged, and assaulted, but they include the aftermath and trauma.
Marco Rubio
Rubio said he had never advocated exceptions for rape or incest to abortion bans.
 In 2013, he co-sponsored the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which was meant to prohibit abortions of unborn children more than 20 weeks into a pregnancy. It  would have allowed exceptions in rape or incest or if the life of the mother was threatened. He refused to say if he would let a woman die rather than abort.
Donald Trump
Trump says he is "unbeholden to political correctness" when asked about his disparaging remarks about women.
GOP Debate moderator Megan Kelly pointed out that Trump has a history of sexist remarks on twitter and in public.  He referred to women as “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.”  He then took a jab at Kelly, and denied remembering many of the comments.
Donald Trump
Donald Trump is drawing fire from all corners of GOP after more caustic, sexist remarks.
Following the GOP debate where Trump jabbed at Megan Kelly, Trump told CNN,"You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever."  He was promptly dumped from a keynote speaking role at a major Conservative rally.  Trump's response is more insulting on twitter
Alliance Defending Freedom
"Zero Planned Parenthood facilities are licensed to do mammograms. Planned Parenthood, women don’t need you!"
In an effort to debunk defenders that Planned Parenthood provides essential women’s health services in addition to abortions, an anti-abortion group claimed that none of the organization’s clinics is licensed to provide mammograms. Planned Parenthood physicians do however perform the clinical exams that lead to referrals for a mammogram or other specialized care.
Planned Parenthood
Virginia woman bares mastectomy scars to lawmaker intent on defunding Planned Parenthood.
During an anti-abortion rant to defund Planned Parenthood, Leigh Anne Woods walked up the podium and took her shirt off saying, “You have a problem because they perform abortions, look at everything else they do, they save lives!” Woods said. “It’s more than birth control,” she insisted. “It’s more than abortion. They save lives.”
Jeb Bush Fl
Jeb Bush says, Planned Parenthood is "not actually doing women’s health issues."
Setting abortion procedures aside -- Planned Parenthood offered more than 10 million services in 2013. Those services included contraception, breast exams, pregnancy tests, pap tests and STI/STD testing and treatment.
Greg Abbott Tx Gop
"After Texas defunded Planned Parenthood, both the unintended pregnancy and abortion rates dropped."
Abortions were already declining. So, half this claim draws on cherry-picked statistics from Abbott and the other half lacks factual backup
Donald Trump
Among Syrian refugees, "there aren't that many women, there aren't that many children."
Trump's assessment of the refugee situation is badly mangled and is conflating two different sets of refugees: Those 534,000 reaching Europe by sea, who are mostly men, and the 4 million Syrians in U.N. refugee camps, most of whom are women and children.
Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah
Chaffetz says in 2006, Planned Parenthood performed more prevention services and cancer screenings than abortions, but in 2013, there were more abortions.
The statement is inaccurate. In fact, there were three times as many cancer screenings and prevention services as abortions in 2013.
Dana Loesch
Loesch said that Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards was "forced to concede that 86 percent of Planned Parenthood’s revenue is from abortion."
Richards made no such admission, even though she was grilled for 5 hours and not allowed to answer questions before the September 29, 2015 U.S. House hearing on Planned Parenthood. The Conservative talk radio host Dana Loesch, served as a foil the claim that just 3 percent of it’s services are abortion-related.

Dan Patrick R-tx
Patrick says Planned Parenthood does nothing but profit from killing babies and then selling body parts
Planned Parenthood’s most common pregnancy services in 2013 were pregnancy tests (1.1 million services); HIV tests (704,000 services); emergency contraception kits (1.4 million services) and Pap tests (378,692 services). No federal money has paid for any abortion services, and there’s been no confirmation it sells body parts for profit.
Carly Fiorina
Fiorina said "92 percent of the jobs lost during Barack Obama’s first term belonged to women."
PolitiFact has found that the number of women with jobs increased by 416,000 during Obama’s first term.
Ted Cruz Tx
Cruz says "Under Barack Obama and the big government economy, the median wage for women has dropped $733."
Wages actually have risen for women since Obama took office. 
Hillary Clinton
Clinton says most minimum-wage workers are "women."
According to the study by PolitiFact, 62.7 percent of minimum wage workers age 16 and older are women. That’s almost, but not quite, two thirds.
Planned Parenthood
Grand Jury turns tables on Planned Parenthood accusers, but Texas Governor continues his investigation and his assault on Texas PP clinics.
On 1/25/2016 a Houston grand jury cleared Planned Parenthood of allegations that they sold organs of aborted fetuses, and instead indicted the undercover videographers behind the allegations on charges of using fake driver's licenses and violating Texas' law against the purchase and sale of human organs- the very law they tried to bring against against PP.

Susie Meister, Religious Scholar
Religion scholar tells how studying religion made her a Liberal.
Susie Meister who has a PhD in Religious Studies and campaigned for George W. Bush tells about a shift in her understanding of Scripture after she examined it for herself. Non-judgmental Jesus, who defended a prostitute and ate with the poor didn't look anything like the politics of the Right.
Donald Trump
June Trump Truthfulness average is "Mostly False."
As of June 10, 2016, PolitiFact has reviewed 154 statements by Donald Trump. Twelve (12) were true or mostly true. Forty nine (49) were 1/2 True of Mostly-False.  And Ninety three (93) were False or Pants-on-Fire. Below are just a few:
