Hypocrisy or ignorance. U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the Democrat socialist who deemed himself qualified to be president of the United States, displayed at least one of these two traits last week as he sat in judgment during a confirmation hearing.
Sanders is either ignorant of the U.S. Constitution, or has the hypocritical problem of judging religion, or more specifically, just one religion — Christianity.
Sanders grilled Russell Vought, President Donald Trump’s pick to be deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget, about a year-old blog post Vought wrote stating Vought believed Muslims “stand condemned” by God because “they have rejected Jesus Christ his Son.”
Let’s get real — there are Muslims who believe Christians face a similar fate for their religious beliefs.
However, does this automatically mean a Muslim or a Christian is going to persecute or oppress those of differing religious beliefs? No, it does not. And it is highly unlikely Sanders would have dared interrogate a nominee who happened to be Muslim and wrote a blog expressing similar views on a differing religion — hence the hypocrisy.
Despite Sanders and his hypocritical double standard against Christianity, the most valid reason to criticize Sanders for his finger-waving accusations comes from the U.S. Constitution. The founding document of this country states, “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
If Sanders was not applying some half-baked religious test against Vought, then what was he doing? Sanders is either ignorant of the U.S. Constitution, which would seem to be detriment for a U.S. senator, or perhaps he considers political correctness to be more important.
Either way, those of all religious beliefs should be thankful Sanders is not in the White House.
