Russell Vought is a Christian who is President Trump’s choice for deputy White House budget director. During Vought’s Senate hearing this week, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders rebuffed Trump’s nominee because of Vought’s religious beliefs.
Vought, who was the vice president of Heritage Action for America for seven years, had written an opinion piece in January 2016 in which he boldly stated, “Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God, because they have rejected Jesus Christ his Son, and they stand condemned.”
Sanders accused Vought of being hateful with an indefensible perspective. In respect to Vought’s position, Sanders stated, “It is Islamaphobic. And it is an insult to over a billion Muslims throughout the world.”
An insult to Muslims throughout the world? Hey, Bernie, now isn’t that just too damn bad!
Vought defended himself by saying, “I am a Christian, and I believe in a Christian set of principles based on my faith. Throughout Vought’s explanation for his stance on Islam versus Christianity in regards to condemnation, Sanders repeatedly interrupted him. “I understand that you are a Christian. There are other people of different religions in this country and around the world. In your judgement do you think that people who are not Christians are going to be condemned?”
Uh, yes, Bernie, that’s exactly what Vought is insinuating, because he is a CHRISTIAN! Jesus Christ said, “No one comes to the Father except through me.” And those words are the widely held convictions of Christians throughout the world.
But Bernie Sanders doesn’t like them, because he sees them as derogatory to Muslims. Socialist Bernie might want to explore the teachings of the Quran and the faith of more than twenty-five percent of the world’s Muslims who believe that not only are non-Muslims infidels, but that they should be “killed” because of their disloyalty to Allah.
I’m wondering if Sanders has ever bothered asking a Muslim why he believes that homosexuals should be destroyed. I’m wondering if he has ever asked a Muslim why Muslim men believe in cutting off the clitoris of their women in what is known as female genital mutilation. I’m wondering if Bernie has ever asked a Muslim man to defend his marriage to a nine year old girl. I’m wondering if he has ever asked a Muslim why honor killings are permissible under Sharia.
Bernie Sanders is rejecting Russell Vought distinctly, because Vought is an outspoken Christian. Maybe if Vought had minded his manners and not written words which were offensive to “billions of Muslims throughout the world,” Socialist Bernie wouldn’t have been so hostile.
Until he decided to challenge Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democrat presidential primary, Bernie Sanders was relatively unknown by most Americans. He was an Independent who caucused with the Democrats. And he was never taken seriously by the Washington Establishment or media.
Why? Because everybody who knew or listened to Bernie Sanders identified him as the nutjob found in every organization. Though I must say that Congress surely has tenfold the number of wackos as does the typical institution.
Actually, Bernie Sanders was the litmus test as to just how far left the Democrat base had moved. His solid position as a socialist attracted millions of Democrats and other far-left numbskulls. His semi-successful challenge to Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination reflected both the degree of widespread radicalism within the Democrat Party and the overall exhaustion the voters endured with the never-ending story of Hillary Clinton.
But when the relatively unknown Sanders garnered national attention with his presidential campaign, his head just continued to grow. And now it seems as though he is a militant, anti-Christian senator seeking to draw blood from Christians seeking government jobs.
Bernie is stepping out of his socialist utopia to hitch a ride on the pro-Islamic, anti-Christian bandwagon. Sanders was scolding Vought for his Christian beliefs, pure and simple.
While Christians are dying at the hands of Islamic jihadists as they prepare the world for the Islamic caliphate, human fecal matter like Bernie Sanders are attacking Christians for expressing their faith.
In essence what Sanders has initiated with his line of questioning towards Russell Vought is a religious test. Bernie Sanders wants Christians to denounce the basic tenet of their Christian faith if they want to serve in the United States government.
It is a can of worms which he himself crawled out of, and he intends to use this line of thinking to thwart Christians, who profess their faith, from becoming involved in government.
According to Sanders, if you are Christian who holds true to the words of Jesus Christ, you are contemptuous to Muslims. And you have no business serving the people of this nation.
According to Sanders, if you are a Christian, you are Islamaphobic.
The clash of civilization is just heating up, and Bernie Sanders just took it up a few more degrees.
