Ocasio-Cortez unleashes on Christians
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said religious liberty advocates are "weaponizing" the Bible to "justify bigotry," much like "those who justified slavery did."

During a Thursday House Oversight Committee hearing about the Trump administration's "religious liberty assault on LGBTQ rights," Ocasio-Cortez said people using religious exemptions to exclude gay and transgender citizens remind her of those who "weaponized" Scripture to enable slavery, white supremacy, and racism.

"It's very difficult to sit here and listen to arguments in the long history of this country of using Scripture and weaponizing and abusing Scripture to justify bigotry," the New York Democrat said to the panelists present at the committee hearing. "White supremacists have done it. Those who justified slavery did it. Those who fought against integration did it, and we're seeing it today." ...

Psalm 43:1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.

2 For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

3 O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.

4 Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.

5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

Frank, that concept is very clear to me at least and I’m not the brightest chap in the class.
Thanks fellow Floridian! Intelligence has nothing to do with it. It is a matter of wisdom.

And true wisdom comes from only one place; above.

Jim, if you promote those who say they are pro homosexuality, then you are promoting homosexuality.

If you promote those who say they are pro-abortion, then you are promoting abortion.

If you promote those who say they support the feminist movement, then you are promoting the feminist movement.

Surely you can understand the above concept.

Jim; It’s scary when you see your reality of what you & others embrace & try to pass off.

As you affirm objective morality, without really having a rational basis for it. In general though. You & Cortez use moral language to condemn God, the Bible, or Christians. You are trying to use words that describe realities that you don’t even believe in. As you don’t want to be held accountable for your own sin.

The unregenerate are lovers & pleasers, of the fallen flesh, in what feels good, in going to Burger King, I will have it my own way!!

Mat 16:26 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, & loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

Jim you & Cortez are fizzing together as your worldview & here, are reduced down to humanistic, materialistic , atoms, just fizzing, differently from one another.

Without stealing & borrowing from a Biblical Worldview, that you & many others who are unregenerated. Can’t account for reason, or for morality, or true Truth, or Justice, etc.

As you live life out through in being in active rebellion against the Only creator & sustainer of life & death, as a image barrier of God; Gen 1:27!

Without an objective moral standard of what is right & wrong, any judgments about right & wrong are just ones individual opinions. In which in reality is very intolerant, as ones Worldview is exposed & reduced to a way, that seems right, but leads too utter soul distruction for ones life, ever so sadly!

So Jim stop crying about your President, who is also the Current President too. But I am sure like Feel the Burn, you praise the murdering Dictators of Cuba!!!

Timothy, when did you see me support the queer part of society? I haven't yet.

Even before queer marriages were made Constitutional with the help of the Republican Catholic Supreme Court Justices, I often referenced these two articles. (Why a Good Person Can Vote Against Same-Sex Marriage) by Dennis Prager, a good conservative with Jew and a very good secular article about the ridiculousness of queer marriages. (The Secular Case Against Gay Marriage)

I still agree with the morality, and the good sense of both of the above articles❗👍

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, certainly has a command of the English language. It's too bad that some other people in the federal government can't handle it as well or as smart as she is. It just shows that moral positions, good ones, are not entirely founded on mental ability.👎

By the way, she is not criticizing Christians she's criticizing Trumpian "moralists"

To remind you--- '"Heal Their Land": Evangelical Political Theology From the Great Awakening to the Moral Majority"

[Download or view as PDF] and see page 244 of the dissertation, especially.

""Ocasio-Cortez said people using religious exemptions to exclude gay and transgender citizens remind her of those who "weaponized" Scripture to enable slavery""

Sad! The poor lady is blind, ignorant and alienated from all truth and goodness.

Eph 4:18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness."

Considering homosexuality, lesbianism, transgenderism and all the other perversions as the despicable abominations they are is not “bigotry,” but plain good sense. Jim, will you ever side with what is right and take a stand against sin? Not unless you get saved, you won’t.

She is just repeating what her liberal college professors have told her. Nearly any college student or graduate could repeat these same lines.
She is just using her position as celebrity, and since we live in a day of clicks, it is used to gather more attention to news sites, which they convert into money by selling advertising.
The truth? No, no one is interested in the truth of any matter. Choose any subject: the campaign during the Super Bowl about human trafficking and exploitation did not make the logical connection--enforce laws at the border that would reduce much of this traffic, along with drug traffic. Enforce the law inside the country about foreigners overstaying their visas, which would also reduce this traffic. But does this get any press? No, because it's seen as a political issue and the media, controlled by liberals, do not report the truth.

Attacking God’s Holy Word is not merely a matter of politics/opinions. Regardless of race, color, gender, religion, sex, political affiliation, and education; it is always wicked to trash talk God or His Holy Scriptures. No matter whether your name is AOC, Jim Lincoln, or Adolf Hitler; it’s always wrong to misrepresent the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

Strange you're worrying about an educated woman who isn't White, and more importantly not even a Republican what should be worrying you is we Independents now outnumber the Republicans ❗ 👍
Strange that you call AOC's ignorance "education."

Question for you: Since you have declared she's not Caucasian, what race is AOC?

Although to be sure all evangelicals are not truly Christians, nevertheless the term in political parlance is synonymous with Chruians.

Thus we not only have AOC bigoted rant against Christians, we also have Jim from Lincoln joining her side and also putting out a post against Christians.

Quite telling isn’t it.

It always amazes me that the ONLY people who bring up race are Democrats. Oh, history proves that it was Democrats who wanted to protect the slavery of my ancestors, founded and championed the KKK and Jim Crowe inspired segregation and violence, and one of your Democratic presidents watched the blockbuster racist movie Birth of a Nation in the White House. The Democratic Party has been effectively targeting our unborn Black children. And what have they done for women except promote the murder of their children? It is a fact that Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in greater percentages than Democrats. It always amazes me how certain Democrats act like they are "smarter than thou" but always misrepresent the facts concerning the dark history of their party. No wonder an evil Socialist like Bernie can be welcome in their midst whose political philosophy has brought on the greatest mass genocides and human rights abuses the modern world has witnessed. Why anyone who considers themselves a believer and remain a Democrat to me is naive, irrational, or simply a wolf in sheep's clothing.
