“Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you, and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man.”
Marco Rubio Tweet
For a United States senator to quote from a holy book, is unseemly at best an undemocratic at worst. I don’t care if an elected official considers the Bible, the Koran or the Vedas the word of God, I care only that they consider the Constitution the supreme law of humans.
I consider any scripture uttered by a politician in his official role execrable rubbish, unworthy of being praised.
The voters don’t hate Marco Rubio on account of his spiritual devotion to the Son of Man, but on account of his slavish devotion to Donald Trump.
Rubio, like most evangelicals, care only about members of their own religion expressing nothing but contempt for immigrants, minorities, gays and lesbians, progressives and liberals and anyone else who doesn’t subscribe to their Neanderthal beliefs, and then they have the gall to complain that people hate them on account of their faith.
If Rubio distanced himself from Trump and his racist, undemocratic, misogynist and homophobic views, he wouldn’t be so reviled regardless if he was a follower of Jesus, Buddha or the Prophet Muhammad.
