Bernie Sanders Destroys Religious Bigot During Confirmation Hearing


DURING THE CONFIRMATION HEARING
FOR RUSSELL VOUGHT, HE IS THE NOMINEE FOR DEPUTY DIRECTOR
OF THE OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET, OF COURSE, TRUMP IS
THE GUY WHO NOMINATED HIM. BERNIE SANDERS CAME ACROSS
AN ISSUE THAT HE FELT PASSIONATELY ENOUGH ABOUT THE
QUESTION HIM ON AND IT HAD TO DO WITH PREVIOUS STATEMENTS THAT HE
HAD MADE IN REGARD TO MUSLIMS. SANDERS TOOK ISSUE WITH THE
PIECE VOUGHT WROTE IN JANUARY 2016 ABOUT AN INCIDENT AT WHETON
COLLEGE. THE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL HAD FIRED A
POLITICAL SCIENCE PROFESSOR FOR A FACEBOOK POST INTENDED TO
EXPRESS SOLIDARITY WITH MUSLIMS. VOUGHT DISAGREED WITH HAWKINSí
POST AND DEFENDED THE SCHOOL
IN AN ARTICLE FOR THE CONSERVATIVE WEBSITE THE
RESURGENT. WHAT EXACTLY DID HE WRITE IN
THAT PIECE THAT CAUGHT BERNIE SANDERS ATTENTION AND
MADE HIM QUESTION THIS NOMINEE? HE HAD WRITTEN, 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. HE MADE THIS STATEMENT BERNIE
SANDERS FELT THAT IT WAS QUESTIONABLE AND DISCRIMINATORY. WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE IS
THE EXCHANGE THAT THEY HAD DURING THE SENATE HEARING TAKE A
LOOK FOR YOURSELVES AND WE WILL DISCUSS AFTER. WE WRITE TO EXPRESS OUR DEEP
CONCERNS ABOUT THE NOMINATION OF RUSSELL VOUGHT TO THE POSITION
OF DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF THE OFFICE. HE HAS DENIGRATED THE MUSLIM
FAITH. HIS WRITING HAS SHOWN DISTILLATE
TO MUSLIMS AND DISCLOSE THEM FROM ANYTHING. AND THE PISA REFER TO THE EURO
FOR A PUBLICATION CALLED RESURGENT, GIRO, MUSLIM
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? ABSOLUTELY NOT, SENATOR. I AM 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, CHRISTIAN SCHOOL THAT HAS A
STATEMENT OF FAITH THAT INCLUDES THE CENTRALITY OF JESUS
CHRIST FOR SALVATION. AGAIN, I APOLOGIZE. FORGIVE
ME, WE JUST DONíT HAVE A LOT OF TIME. DO YOU BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE IN
THE MUSLIM RELIGION STAND CONDEMNED? AGAIN SENATOR, I AM A CHRISTIAN
AND I WROTE THAT PIECE ñ I UNDERSTAND THAT. I DONíT KNOW
HOW MANY MUSLIMS ARE IN AMERICA, PROBABLY A COUPLE MILLION. ARE YOU SUGGESTING ALL THOSE PEOPLE STAND CONDEMNED? WHAT ABOUT JEWS? DO THEY STAND CONDEMNED TOO? SENATOR, I AM A CHRISTIAN. I UNDERSTAND YOU ARE A
CHRISTIAN. BUT THIS COUNTRY IS MADE UP OF
PEOPLE, I UNDERSTAND THAT CHRISTIANITY IS THE MAJORITY BUT
THERE OTHER PEOPLE OF OTHER RELIGIONS AND DISCUSSION AROUND
THE WORLD. IN YOUR JUDGMENT, DO YOU THINK PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT
CHRISTIANS ARE GOING TO BE CONDEMNED? THANK YOU FOR PROBING ON THE
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 IS HOW I SHOULD TREAT ALL INDIVIDUALS – AND YOU THINK YOUR STATEMENT
THAT YOU PUT INTO THAT PUBLICATION, THEY DO NOT KNOW GOD
BECAUSE THEY HAVE REJECTED JESUS CHRIST THE SON AND THEY
STAND CONDEMNED. YOU THINK THAT’S RESPECTFUL OF OTHER
RELIGIONS? SENATOR, I WROTE A POST BASED
ON BEING A CHRISTIAN AND ATTENDING A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
THAT HAS A STATEMENT OF FAITH THAT SPEAKS CLEARLY WITH
REGARD TO THE CENTRALITY OF JESUS CHRIST AND SALVATION. I WOULD SIMPLY SAY, MISTER
CHAIRMAN, THAT THIS NOMINEE IS REALLY NOT SOMEONE
WHO IS WHAT THIS COUNTRY IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT. I VOTE NO. WOW. THAT WAS AN INCREDIBLE EXCHANGE
AND IT IS INTERESTING TO SEE THE DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS OF
THAT EXCHANGE BECAUSE ON THE RIGHT, YOU HAVE PUBLICATIONS
LIKE THE NATIONAL REVIEW CALLING OUT BERNIE SANDERS, ESSENTIALLY
ACCUSING HIM OF DISCRIMINATING AGAINST CHRISTIANS WHICH THAT
WAS IN MY INTERPRETATION. I SAW THAT IS HIM POINTING OUT
TO SOMEONE WHO WILL BE PART OF OUR GOVERNMENT IF HE GETS
CONFIRMED OPENLY AND TRANSPARENTLY SAYING THAT AN
ENTIRE GROUP OF PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY WILL BE CONDEMNED OR
ARE CONDEMNED. THAT KIND OF MESSAGING DOESN’T
LOOK GOOD ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE PART OF OUR GOVERNMENT. YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO ENDORSE
ONE RELIGION OVER THE OTHER. AND THEN EMIGRATING FROM THE
ATLANTIC SHARED HER POINT OF YOU AND I WANT TO SHARE
WITH YOU GUYS JUST TO PLAY DEVILS ADVOCATE AND GIVING US
PERSPECTIVE. SHE SAYS SANDERS MAY USE THE
TERM ISLAMIC PHOBIA TO SUGGEST THAT VOTE FEARS MUSLIMS
FOR WHO THEY ARE TOP IN HIS WRITING, BUT WAS CONTESTING
SOMETHING DIFFERENT: HE DISAGREES WITH WHAT MUSLIMS
BELIEVE, AND DOES NOT THINK THEIR FAITH IS SATISFACTORY FOR
SALVATION. RIGHT OR WRONG, THIS IS A
CONVICTION HELD BY MILLIONS OF AMERICANS AND MANY MUSLIMS
MIGHT SAY THE SAME THING ABOUT CHRISTIANITY. HER PIECE SORT OF DEFENDED VOUGHT
AND I THOUGHT THAT WAS A REALLY INTERESTING PERSPECTIVE, BUT IF
YOU WANT TO SIMPLIFY WHAT SHE IS SAYING, WELL, THIS IS WHAT HIS
RELIGION ALLOWS HIM TO BELIEVE AND SINCE A LOT OF AMERICANS
ALSO BELIEVE IT, WHATEVER. I GUESS IT IS WHAT HE BELIEVES
SO WHY YOU GOING TO CRITICIZE THEM FOR? BUT THERE WAS A TIME IN
AMERICA WHERE THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE BELIEVED THAT INTERRACIAL
MARRIAGE WAS WRONG. THERE WAS A TIME WHEN PEOPLE
THOUGHT GAY MARRIAGE WAS WRONG. THERE WAS A TIME IN AMERICA WERE
PEOPLE THOUGHT THAT BLACKS AND WHITES, BLACK INDIVIDUALS
AND WHITE INDIVIDUALS SHOULD USE SEPARATE WATER FOUNTAINS AS
SEPARATE SCHOOLS. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THE MAJORITY
OF AMERICANS THINK WHEN IT COMES TO THESE TYPES OF ISSUES. WHAT MATTERS IS WHAT IS THE
RIGHT POSITION ON THE ISSUE? IF YOU ARE OPENLY HOSTILE OR
HATEFUL TOWARD A CERTAIN GROUP OF PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY
BECAUSE OF THEIR RELIGION, BECAUSE YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN IT
THEN THAT IS A PROBLEM. I THINK THAT IS WHAT BERNIE
SANDERS WAS TRYING TO POINT TO DUCK RIGHT, EMMA POINTS OUT AN
INTERESTING WAY OF LOOKING AT IT THAT DIFFERENT BELIEF
SYSTEMS AND PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO BELIEVE WHAT THEY WANT
THAT RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IS WHAT MAKES A GREAT THAT WHAT MAKES IT
DIFFERENT WHERE I DISAGREE WITH EMMA IS HE IS NOT JUST A CITIZEN
BELIEVE IN WHAT HE WANTS. THIS IS A HEARING, CONFIRMATION
HEARING FOR HIM TO SERVE FOR DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF THE
OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET DIED THINK IT IS IMPORTANT THAT
THESE HEARINGS WHAT BERNIE SANDERS WAS TRYING TO DO WAS NOT
TEST HIS BELIEF SYSTEM. I DON’T THINK HE WOULD CANOPY
WAS A CHRISTIAN OR WENT TO CHURCH, HE WANTS TO KNOW THAT HE
IS GOING TO STAND UP FOR ALL AMERICANS EVEN THOSE WHO HE
SAID IN HIS OWN WORDS STAND CONDEMNED. WHAT IS FRUSTRATING ABOUT
WATCHING THAT TAPE IS THAT YOU HEAR IT A LOT, YOU SEE IT A LOT
ONLINE THAT YOU CAN ANSWER THEM QUESTION THAT WE SEE SO MANY OF
THESE HEARINGS DIED THINK I’VE WATCHED MORE THIS YEAR, THEY’RE
EVERYWHERE. IT’S LIKE THE NBA FINALS OF
HEARINGS THIS YEAR. THE MORE YOU WATCH THEM, THE
LESS YOU LEARN BECAUSE THEY REFUSE TO ANSWER THE QUESTION. HE IS NOT ASKING YOU WHAT YOUR
RELIGIOUS BELIEFS ARE. HE IS ASKING YOU ñ THAT IS NOT ON TRIAL. NO ONE IS SAYING YOU CAN’T
BELIEVE WHAT YOU WANT TO BELIEVE. HE IS ASKING TO STAND BY THE
SENTENCE THAT 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 THAT DO STAND BY THAT AND HE CAN ANSWER YES OR
NO. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE
BETTER. IF HE BELIEVES THAT THEN DUDE,
STAND BY THIS VALUE WROTE THIS IN JANUARY 2016. ARE YOU THAT SPINELESS THAT IF
YOU BELIEVE THAT, YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS A SECTION OF
CHRISTIANS THAT WILL HAVE HIS BACK IF YOU WERE TO STAND BY
THAT BUT YOU WERE NOT EVEN GOING TO COME DOWN ON AN ANSWER
TO ME, AS A CHRISTIAN. I’M A CHRISTIAN. MY FAITH IS SO IMPORTANT TO ME
THAT YOU ASKED ME, CENK UYGUR HAS PUT ME TO THE TEST OF
THIS BEFORE BECAUSE I KNOW IT’S STRANGE AND MARKET HAVE A
CHRISTIAN DIED THE FUND GIMMICK THAT I WILL STAY BY MY
BELIEVES DIOCESE STAND BY EVERYONE ELSE’S RIGHT TO BLUE
BUT THEY WANT TO BELIEVE BUT THIS GUY IS SUCH A POOR
REPRESENTATION OF HOW I UNDERSTAND THE LOVE OF GOD AND
HOW I UNDERSTAND TO HAVE THE AUDACITY TO SPEAK FOR GOD. I HATE WHEN PEOPLE DO THAT. I KNOW WHO IS CONDEMNED AND WHO
IS NOT. I KNOW IíM A GAY CHRISTIAN
SWEARING. IíM A MESS. LOOK, THERE IS A PORTION OF THE
BIBLE THAT SPECIFICALLY TALKS ABOUT THOSE WHO DON’T BELIEVE
THAT JESUS IS GOD AND HOW THEY ARE CONDEMNED AND MUSLIMS DO NOT
BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS GOD. IT IS BASED ON WHAT THE BIBLE
SAYS. I THINK THAT BERNIE SANDERS
WAS VERY SMART IN BRINGING UP JUDAISM AS WELL. THIS IS A MULTI-FAITH COUNTRY. THERE IS A RELIGIOUS PLURALISM
THAT WE SHOULD BE CELEBRATING. I REALLY CAN’T WRAP MY MIND
AROUND SOMEONE WHO WOULDN’T GET ON BOARD WITH THAT. IT MAKES THIS COUNTRY GREAT. IT’S THE REASON WHY MY DAD WAS A
NAVY CHAPLAIN AND HE HAD TO LEARN HOW TO PERFORM MULTIPLE
DIFFERENT KINDS OF SERVICES ON THAT SHOULD BECAUSE ANYONE
CAN SERVE AND PROTECT THIS COUNTRY OF ANY KIND OF FAITH. WHAT COUNTRY DO YOU THINK THIS
IS? I FEEL IT IS SUCH A DISCONNECT. IT’S VERY FRUSTRATING. I’M PISSED
THAT HE COULDN’T ANSWER.

  1. The US Constitution, Article 6 paragraph 3 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."
    How is this questioning legal at all? This is obviously a "religious test"for this office, which by the very Constitution that Sanders is required to support states that he cannot do.

  2. sanders was asking simple yes or no questions, and this idiot christian just keeps tap dancing, it's kinda like how i talk to preachers when i ask them about something and when it's contradicting their belief all they do is the same thing this christian racist does.

  3. Right and that's why it was important to ask that question to him because he wrote it what did he mean by it. If you can't answer a simple question or you're hiding about it or avoiding the question shows a lot about a person if he meant it how he is implying it he wouldn't have avoided the question but since his thought was of pure hate he tap danced around it. Period the end. Stand by your f*cking words if you don't have nothing to hide.

  4. Bernie get it through your thick head! All who don't accept Christ are condemned. Stop acting like you dont hold exclusionary beliefs in Judaism lol.

  5. I’m not pro-Islam but You can’t fault Bernie. His character is to be inclusive of all and he stands up for those that he feels are being treated unfairly. Berne all the way 2020.

  6. Bernie, like most Democrats, needs to read the Constitution. What a profoundly stupid person with profoundly stupid followers

  7. All, Bernie Sanders just did a religion test for a government position, which is illegal and Bernie Sanders broke the law….he just established the religion of the government by pushing Universalism and condeming Biblical Christianity….bernie wants seperation from church and state only when it fits Bernie's agenda…

  8. "The Young Turks" slaughtered over a million Christians – which is documented history – and Cenk and his "The Young Turks" takes that branding? That is all you need to know about what the agenda is for now. Sanders' hatred of this man was shocking. Religious litmus test? This was a persecution not an interview. Sanders declares that Christians need not apply for government jobs. Hmm, that is the very definition of discrimination. Even today.

  9. "Senator, I'm a christian…" I think both Bernie and I both wanted to slap him for just repeating that over and over.

  10. The Young Jerks … radical leftist idiots who lied about the MAGA Students, even after they found out the truth.

  11. These 2 commentators are moronic. To believe someone is condemned does not mean you automatically dislike that person. My parents both believe im condemned but the didn't stop loving me. They also know that nothing will ever bring me back to christianity.
    That being said, anyone who believes that muslims don't feel the same OR WORSE about Christians is really mistaken.

  12. Why does that person saying i am a Christian, and the word Christian in general, just stop saying it, it makes u look dumb and desperate

  13. to answer bernies question, from a Christian point of view. yes. if you reject Jesus, you will be judged accordingly. He's the only way to the Father. call me what you like, i don't really care. that's just the way it is. doesnt mean i dislike people, He tells us to love all regardless, even to pray for our enemies. but the book is pretty clear, accept Christ as your savior, confess with your mouth He is king and repent.

  14. Muslims believe Christian's are infidels and Christian's bieve that Muslims are condemned for rejecting Christ as Lord. They are contradictory beliefs.

  15. MR.VOUGHT LET ME SHARE WITH
    YOU SOMETHING A VERY WISE MAN
    WROTE ,
    " SEPERATION OF CHURCH AND STATE IS ESSENTIAL TO A FREE AND DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY "
    THOMAS JEFFERSON
    PERIOD.

  16. Why didn't you show the part where he openly attacked the man saying( who is he to judge him ). The man said the truth. He also said, he respects every body

  17. The back of her TV studio looks like a shredded USA flag, it stand to show that this TV presenter and her boss is leaning to the left socialist mentality.

  18. Conservatives treat "Socialism" as a boogie man. Then people, get rid of UR "Social Security" benefits, UR Medicare & Medicaid, public schools, library, police & fire dept. THEY ARE ALL SOCIALIST INSTITUTES! Learn, understand, and stop making unsubstantiated remarks . Be in tuned, and see the ENTIRE picture.

  19. A key factor of many religions is their repelling would-be parishioners by their cringe-inducing, hypocrisy and hate fueling of others who are different than them.

  20. We are supposed to have "separation of church and state", but many conservatives violate this part of our Constitution. They may not realize it, but they are trampling on our rights & freedoms. Jesus in a synagogue appealing for conservative votes?! , or for laws, prohibiting the right to contraceptives?! Or, up on the mount, shouting, " you all go and vote, or you're not my sheep!" Please, people, get real.

  21. Sanders is a evil pos hypocrite like all democrat leftist, all these evil doers do is divide lie steal and kill just like satan.

  22. For those who wish for truth instead of hatred look at Amazon reviews for a book called Muhammad Prophet of Peace by Prof. Juan Cole, a first class researcher who happens to be a Christian.

  23. For those who wish for truth instead of hatred look at Amazon reviews for a book called Muhammad Prophet of Peace by Prof. Juan Cole, a first class researcher who happens to be a Christian.

  24. John 3:18 is what he was referring to.

    There is only one way, one truth.

    It is impossible for everyone to be right.

    Islamic people believe they are right in their religion which only started in the 700s A.D., based off of hearsay / word of mouth Christianity (as seen by multiple errors in their book) and a vision given to Muhammad by a suspicious source (he first thought it was demonic, but after urging from his wife, changed his mind).

  25. Bigot definition: "A person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions."

    Intolerant definition: "Not tolerant of views, beliefs, or behavior that differ from one's own."

    Tolerant definition: "Showing willingness to allow the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with."

    The title of the video is misleading. What part of what that Christian guy said in that video was intolerant or bigoted exactly?

    If anything Bernie was the "bigot" here. Bernie throwing that little hissy-fit because that guy stated the core doctrine of Christianity that Jesus is the only way to salvation was just silly. Bernie didn't destroy jack.

  26. Ana position and Sanders position is if you are to serve effectively in Government you have to have a secular liberal world view.

  27. FK bernie and that Christian guy couldn't answer the questions directly. He had to go ALL around it like a politician instead of answering it straight on. YES bernie, ALL people are LOST if they reject JESUS. DUH.

  28. Separations of church and state,sick of religion even coming into it reason for most wars people believing in fantasy that can’t be proven and against proven science wake up.

  29. Any of you lemmings who listen to these SJWs need to be reminded of something. A person's religion, is not a litmus test for public office. It shouldn't even be mentioned, & Comrade Sanders actually discriminated against him because of his religion. Last time I checked, that's a violation of his rights. But, of course who cares as long is not someone on your side, right?

  30. Hey two ladies, you don't get what Vought means its was stated in Bible that no one can come to Father, only by Jesus Christ
    That's why he keep repeating it
    And its not stand only for other Religion it was for all the people..

  31. In fact, Jesus is the penultimate and second greatest prophet in Islam. He is the second most-mentioned person in the Qur'an (Moses is the most-mentioned), with 120-something references. How many references does Mohammad get? Four! There is more in the Qur'an about the (allegedly "virgin") birth of Jesus than in the bible, and a completely different story, His mother is mentioned over 70 times, is called "the greatest of all women" and an entire chapter (Sura) of the Qur'an is named after her. Jesus is coming back to win the final battle against Satan and the false messiah, too, after which he will rule the earth in peace and tranquility until the day of judgement, etc., etc. I don't believe any of this stuff myself, but how come Christians in the USA are so ignorant about what Muslims believe? I do like the bit about Jesus ruling the earth after winning the great battle, not for 1,000 years, as the more bizarre sort of Christians reckon, but just for the rest of his natural life, said to be about 40 years. During that time, he'll get married and have children. Allegedly.

    Now, Christians, tell me WHY what it says in your Bible about Jesus is more credible or reliable than what it says in the Qur'an. Come on, an actual REASON, please, independent of any words in either holy book. Put them both down and give me a reason why one is right and the other wrong. What? You can't do that? You just keep referring back to one of the books we're discussing. That's like claiming Herman Goering wasn't guilty of any war crimes because he said he wasn't. Never mind what the books say about themselves. They would say that, wouldn't they? Give me an objective reason, independent of what either book says. You can't, can you? You know the fate of people trapped in ever-diminishing circles of circular reasoning, don't you?

  32. Religious guy is declaring two contradictory statements. You can't consider people condemned and both respect and tolerate and expect to be a public servant to them. These are two conflicting statements. Even the pope is more progressive than this. Well past time the US stood up to anyone preaching supremacy and wholeheartedly embraced secular pluralism.

  33. Ur SP m fools idiots ya two commentators fonies he said truth ask muslims there beliefs of non muslims ya two are Anti christ..spin spin spin…..ya two no good spin masters liars

  34. I thank Mr. Vought for standing up boldly for the faith. I’ll go ahead and say what he didn’t get to say: Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. NO ONE comes to the Father but by Him.

  35. shes christian? Why did she say F#### Y## to him? wooow that man is christian by telling the truth of the bible. Jesus is the only way to salvation thats what christians believe.

  36. You stupid idiots, the muslims aslo condemn , people who dont believe in the Muslim belief, in the Quran , if you don't believe the Quran , if you believe in Jesus you are condemned & behead! Yashua died for our sins , this dude is a anti christian!

  37. 22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

    23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

    1 John 2:22-23

    Bernie Sanders you do the will of your father.

    Why do you not understand my speech? even because you cannot hear my word.
    You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
    And because I tell you the truth, you believe me not.
    Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do you not believe me?
    He that is of God hears God's words: you therefore hear them not, because you are not of God.

  38. "I'm a Christian." Let me say that to you 4-5 times as it has no bearing on my ability to do this job as a human being with no bias towards Muslims. I would think, if this person were an atheist, the irony would be more self-evident. Atheists either care less about seeing people through the lens of religious ideology or see it for all it is worth. What is your religion worth on the relative spectrum of all other religions? I don't know nor should I profess to know when performing my job professionally.

  39. We will all stand before God. And the question will be this. What did you do with my Son. For Americans to be so arrogant as to think they can overrule God. A mere hundred years ago we thought the moon was made of cheese. Ya. Listen to us we are smarter than the Alpha and Omega. True Christians don’t hate anybody. But we don’t have to say that everybody is right if we don’t believe that. We don’t require anyone to say we are right if they don’t believe it. Why can’t we all have our BELIEFS. THATS THE KEYWORD HERE. BELIEFS.

  40. The funny thing is that Christens can't say a word about their Jewish masters
    who consider Jesus to be an everyday b*stard , and they snitched him to the Romans who killed him !
    on the other hand Muslims believe that Jesus birth was a miracle and he is a top prophet !

  41. Millions of Christian in Egypt and Syria and Iraq scream that you are an idiot
    if you are talking about terrorists ,let me tell you that unlike your terrorists who live in congress
    ours live in hiding up mountains and caves .

  42. Christianity Invented By Roman's to Subjugate the Old World Fk It The Hole World, Religion's Can't Exist They Go Against Nature Doom'd To Fail .

  43. Where in the constitution does it say you must pass a religion test before serving in the government. Bernie Sanders is an idiot. He did not defame Muslims. He stated his opinion that you must accept Jesus Christ as Savior . Muslims believe Christians to be lost that does not make the Christian phoebes. Dems are destroying this great country.

  44. How absolutely hypocritical. Muslims also believe in exclusivity. Bernie never would berated a Muslim for saying salvation can only come through Islam, nor if an Islamic school let someone go for saying Christian's believe in the same God as them 🙄🤦‍♂️

  45. He didn't destroy anything. He showed his lack of Faith. Good luck Bernie. We live on this earth for 70-80 years. Where you spend ETIRNITY is what matters

  46. How do u get saved without a savior? We have to be perfected through the perfect blood of Jesus Christ in order to gain access to the perfect presence of God. You must be born again by accepting the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ. Religion will not get you in. Your RELATIONSHIP with Jesus is the only way into heaven.

  47. The issue is simply what the Bible clearly states in regards to the “only pathway” to Salvation and Gods forgiveness of sin and that is trust and belief in Jesus Christ alone as your personal Lord and Savior. Anyone who does not hold that position stands in direct conflict with the Bible and according to the Bible stand condemned by God unless saved from Gods judgment by faith in Christ as Lord and Savior of their life…period.
    This is what the Bible states. In this country people are free to disagree with, deny, distort, or dislike this position, but for those who don’t like this teaching, their argument is with the Bible not the people who espouse it’s message.
    The Bible also teaches those who believe in Christ to respect the dignity of those who don’t believe in Him…to love them even.
    True Christians are very tolerant of those who stand against their biblical beliefs and ought not condemn them personally, but to issue a loving warning to those unbelievers of the judgement they are under unless they come to repentance and faith in Christ. It matters not what religion, sect, race, gender or country a person is from, we are ALL called to faith in Christ…we stand condemned already until we put our trust in Jesus to direct our lives and save us from Gods judgement.
    That’s what the Bible teaches. Period.
    I just wish those in this country would remember that true tolerance means tolerating others intolerance and to know the difference between people and the ideas they hold. We ought to learn how to discuss our different beliefs without blowing each other up or name calling. I wish Mr. Vought had simply answered “yes” to Bernie’s question and pointed out that Bernie’s problem is with the Bible, not Mr.Vought.
    Bernie Sanders is not fit to run this country. He’s just pandering to voters.

  48. Religious bigot? The bigots are on the other side…Russell told the truth! something that the left has no tolerance for today! One day you people are going to stand before God and you will give an answer for you're rejection of the greatest gift ever given to man!

  49. He answered it. He did he believes EVERYONE stands condemned in absence of Christ. Intellectually, how is that hard to understand?

  50. This chick is stupid. Another “Christian” who has zero clue what Christ said. Lol. He isn’t speaking for God, he is paraphrasing Jesus, who literally said this. lol.

  51. Just keep politics and religion seperate! It's not that hard of a concept! Just research "Seperation of Church and State".

  52. its very important for every christian to stress the salvation and mercy of Jesus Christ more often than the condemnation of anything..

  53. He just got Berned! What spineless unimportant and insignificant pip squeak of a so called man! Save us from these Born Again, Happy Clappy, End Of Times, Creationism, World is 3000 yes old, proven science hating plebs! Of all idiotic belief systems

  54. You can believe whatever you want about other religions, you just can't work in government once you have assigned yourself the keeper of religion. Once you have made a determination in your own mind, which people are worthy and which ones aren't, you're no longer able to be trusted to treat all Americans equally. If that so called good Christian could get past decades of Catholic priests raping children, only to vilify other religions, he's got more problems than just not getting this appointment.

  55. What Bernie did may sound good to certain people, but it actually does harm than good. By implying that he has no right to believe Muslims are condemned, he's saying Muslims can't say unbelievers are condemned as well, and so on. In effect, he's taking away rights away from the same people he may claim to stand up for.

    I can see the other side, however. I think that people can also use their religion as a masquerade to hide their hatred for other people. And writing Muslims are condemned can be alarming. What Bernie could have done better was probe his statement further. Ask questions like, "What do you mean by condemned?" Give scenarios like if a Muslim was in such and such position, what do you do…? That would've been better to see whether he was hateful or had an extreme position on the afterlife.
