WATCH: Bernie Sanders FLIPS OUT In Middle Of Trump Official Confirmation Hearing- Proves He HATES Christians


In a HIGHLY disturbing exchange that expresses an abundance of ignorance and blatant disrespect  – both of the Constitution, the foundational principles of America, and of simple Christian doctrine, Senator  Bernie Sanders viciously attacks the Christian faith of potential deputy White House budget director Russell Vought.

Vought is a known evangelical Christian.  Sanders is Jewish by ethnicity but acts hostile to religion of any sort even his own with virulent blasts towards what he calls “Israeli occupation” regarding the nation of Israel.

The brutal exchange went like this –

Sanders: Let me get to this issue that has bothered me and bothered many other people. And that is in the piece that I referred to that you wrote for the publication called Resurgent. You wrote, “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.” Do you believe that that statement is Islamophobic?


Vought: Absolutely not, Senator. I’m a Christian, and I believe in a Christian set of principles based on my faith. That post, as I stated in the questionnaire to this committee, was to defend my alma mater, Wheaton College, a Christian school that has a statement of faith that includes the centrality of Jesus Christ for salvation, and …

Sanders: I apologize. Forgive me, we just don’t have a lot of time. Do you believe people in the Muslim religion stand condemned? Is that your view?

Vought: Again, Senator, I’m a Christian, and I wrote that piece in accordance with the statement of faith at Wheaton College.

Sanders: I understand that. I don’t know how many Muslims there are in America. Maybe a couple million. Are you suggesting that all those people stand condemned? What about Jews? Do they stand condemned too?

Vought: Senator, I’m a Christian …

Sanders: I understand you are a Christian! But this country are made of people who are not just — I understand that Christianity is the majority religion, but there are other people of different religions in this country and around the world. In your judgment, do you think that people who are not Christians are going to be condemned?

Vought: Thank you for probing on that question. As a Christian, I believe that all individuals are made in the image of God and are worthy of dignity and respect regardless of their religious beliefs. I believe that as a Christian that’s how I should treat all individuals …

Sanders: You think your statement that you put into that publication, they do not know God because they rejected Jesus Christ, His Son, and they stand condemned, do you think that’s respectful of other religions?

Vought: Senator, I wrote a post based on being a Christian and attending a Christian school that has a statement of faith that speaks clearly in regard to the centrality of Jesus Christ in salvation.

Sanders: I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who this country is supposed to be about.

Article VI of the Constitution expressly forbids exactly what Sanders just did in this exchange with Vought declaring that ‘no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.’”

Sanders’ issued a statement via a spokesman when questioned about his ignorance of the Constitution, stating –

“In a democratic society, founded on the principle of religious freedom, we can all disagree over issues, but racism and bigotry — condemning an entire group of people because of their faith — cannot be part of any public policy.”

While no one expects Sanders to be a theologian of any sort given the fact that Christianity has taught that belief in Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven since its inception, a far higher bar should be set before an elected official who has taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution which Sanders clearly has no comprehension of, nor does he understand.  Furthermore, I don’t believe he cares either. Given this is a person that bills himself as a lawmaker, one would think that it would behoove Sanders to understand the process, as well as gain a foundational perspective about the foundation of the country is purporting to represent.

For all intents and purposes, Sanders is insisting that anyone that believes that there is only one way to Heaven is not fit to serve in public office in his opinion.  Funny, but both the Jewish and Muslims believe there is one way to Heaven as well.  So it seems that Sanders’ objection is actually to Christianity itself and by extension Christian people.

This should be highly concerning to anyone that believes in our nation’s heritage of religious liberty, as well as in the Constitution, as well as any professing Christians.

This is a man that could have been president.  It seems utterly ludicrous to me and frankly dangerous in the extreme that in a country that’s very foundation is based on religious liberty that this line of questioning is deemed appropriate.

In a nation formed of men and women fleeing tyranny in an effort to have the ability to worship as they chose, without a state-sanctioned church such as the Church of England or the Catholic church was in that day and time, a nation that’s very foundation was built upon Judeo-Christian values, Sanders’ treatment of Vought and his attempt to use Vought’s Christianity against him is highly concerning.
