A recent study demonstrated with fairly convincing evidence that being liberal makes one more vulnerable to stupidity.
So it comes as perfectly scientific that liberal atheists are up in arms over Sen. Marco Rubio’s daily Bible verse tweet.
Never mind the First Amendment’s protection of speech, an attorney for the Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a strongly worded letter to Rubio demanding he stop…in the name of the First Amendment.
Yep, you read that right.
You see according to liberals, the ‘establishment clause’ reads thusly, “No one affiliated in any way, shape or form with any government entity shall make pronouncements, suggestions or otherwise related to the expression of religious faith, especially Christianity.”
Of course we know on the contrary that it concerns only Congress and the legal ‘establishment’ of an official religion.
But liberals neither can reason nor read, apparently.
Here’s more from Redstate…
“The [spiritually ignorant] fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they have committed repulsive and unspeakable deeds;
There is no one who does good.” – Psalm 14:1 AMP
No matter what your opinions are of Florida Senator Marco Rubio, it’s hard for a person who values a faith in the Almighty God to hear the senator speak of his personal faith and not be moved.
Honestly, it was after hearing the senator’s views on faith that I was convinced to support his run for the presidency, once Rick Perry had dropped.
And please withhold your Gang of 8 protestations. I don’t care about policy as much as I care about character. Policy is fleeting. It’s something that can be tweaked, or manipulated, based on circumstances. Character is ingrained.
For some time now, Rubio’s Twitter feed has featured daily verses of Scripture. Apparently, the stampy-footed, perpetually aghast atheists are demanding that the man censor his own Twitter account, in order to accommodate their worldview.
I guess nobody has explained to them “unfollow” or the mute feature.
The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, which advocates for strict adherence to separation of church and state and has over 1,400 members in Florida, sent the 46-year-old 2016 presidential candidate a demand letter on Tuesday to complain about an increase in Rubio’s Bible-themed tweets since May.
“We understand that you have been tweeting Bible verses from @MarcoRubio to nearly 3 million followers. It appears that you began tweeting the Bible in mid-May and have been doing so regularly ever since. This is not an errant Bible verse or two, but more than 60 Bible verses in three months,” the letter, written by FFRF attorney Andrew Seidel, reads.
“That’s enough verses to tweet the entire book of Jude. Twice. One of the most recent verses, tweeted during the eclipse, appears to suggest that the eclipse is the work of God, quoting Exodus 10:21.1.”
