Bernie Sanders in Violation of the Constitution

I tend to team with Russell Moore of the SBC on Senator Bernie Sanders and the hearing on Russell Vought.  However, I Sen. Bernie Sanders Defends His Attack On Christianshave to say that I see the Senator as one who does not understand even the basics of his religious heritage as a Jew.   He is not a Jew religiously.  He needs to read the Old Testament to understand what Judaism means.

He could also take a look at history and see that Jews and Christians have lived is social harmony in America for hundreds of year, though they’ve, during their harmonious coexistence, had differences in theology.

Christians lived is harmony with many different theologies around the world.  Why does Bernie Sanders think that is impossible for a Christians serving in the Federal Government today?  Christians have serviced for hundreds of years in the USA governments: local, state and federal for hundreds of years.   Why is now do different?

The Federalist has given Senator Sanders space to qualify his stand against devout Christians serving in the Federal Government.

Sanders more exposes his ignorance of Christianity and the law of the land.  May God help him is my prayer for him.

I believe Senator Sanders is willing to deny a citizen of the USA his constitutional rights.  Senator Sanders violated the Constitution in his questioning.  The Hill makes the point succinctly.

The only problem with Sanders’ position is that it flatly contradicts Article VI, which explicitly bans religious tests for office. Sanders wants to disqualify Mr. Vought before the latter has even begun to function as deputy director of OMB, because he—that is, Sanders—does not think Mr. Vought has acceptable religious beliefs.

A weighed human response to the question of individual human destiny is given by Dr. Billy Graham as explained by James Wallis in the Washington Post.

During the question-and-answer session, the first questioner said, “Dr. Graham, Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life and no man cometh unto the Father but by me.’ Doesn’t that mean that all non-Christians, including the Jews, are going to hell?”

Graham replied, “God will judge us all. This is a God of love and mercy, but also of justice. We will all come before the judgment of God, and I am so glad that God has that job and I don’t.”

The young questioner looked disappointed. “Could you tell us what you think God is going to say?”

Graham answered, “Well, God doesn’t consult with me on things like that.” The despondent questioner walked away.

That wonderful moment speaks of the humility we can have and show, in the place of our deepest beliefs. That humility combined with an absolute commitment to protect each other’s religious freedom is going to be central now, as we move forward in a religiously angry and divided world. God help us.

More from The Hill on this issue. And even more from The Hill.

Attacks On Catholic Church Require People Of All Faiths To Say ‘We Are Catholics Now’

It doesn’t matter which faith you adhere to—we should care about attacks on the Catholic Church, because one threat to religious liberty affects us all.

In my school days, we were taught that the national government is limited. The powers of Congress are only those enumerated in the Constitution. The powers of the President and the Executive Branch are only those enumerated. All other powers are reserved to the States and the People.More

Here is perspective from Americans:

We’re all in this argument about ‘Whose life matters?’ I’m so sick of hearing people scream and cry about that term. Had the first time it’d been said, the term was ‘LGBT Lives Matter, Too’ nobody would have said anything. But the fact that you say ‘LGBT Lives Matter’ they’re now going to go ‘My Life Matters!’ Well then let’s say it how it really is: ‘LGBT Lives Matter, Too. Christian Lives Matter, Too. Black Lives Matter, Too. Cops Lives Matter, Too. White Lives Matter, Too. American Lives Matter!

You know, the best thing that’s happened to me, and I think the best thing that’s happened to ‘most everybody, to be honest with you as I’ve traveled the world, the best thing that’s happened to the world, probably in the last 200 years, is the United States of America. Everyone is going to have to have an opportunity to search it out for themselves, and the conclusion is: if you love your country, you make it a better place. If you love it. It’s like every year, you’ve got to go out in the farm and cut hay and pack it away. There’s no one-year fix-it and it’s going to be fixed forever. I fell in love with this country, and just thing all things are possible.

Angela Merkel Gives Trump a Foundation

Angela Merkel spoke these words in 2015.  Trump is not so radical after all.  Ms. Merkel gives him the basis for stopping the “multicultural” experiment in America.  Sources are not conservative–they are liberal.

” Multiculturalism leads to parallel societies and therefore remains a ‘life lie,’  ” or a sham, she said, before adding that Germany may be reaching its limits in terms of accepting more refugees. “The challenge is immense,” she said. “We want and we will reduce the number of refugees noticeably.
