Marco Rubio Is Complaining Because Democrats Can Also Quote The Bible

Marco Rubio lashed out on Twitter at a Democratic candidate for the U.S. House. Raphael Warnock is one of the candidates facing a special election in Georgia in January, and Rubio is unhappy about a video clip of Warnock citing a Biblical passage for his political views.

Rubio shared the video and commentary below on Twitter. In the clip, Warnock discusses a passage from the Book of Matthew, saying that a person cannot serve both God and money. He elaborates, saying that one can also not serve both God and the military. In his added comments, Rubio declares this to be one of the “crazy” ideas promoted by “the radicals who control the Democratic party’s activist [and] small-dollar donor base.”

The passage from which Warnock is preaching can be found here at Bible Gateway: “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

In some translations, ‘mammon,’ or the love of wealth, is translated more simply as ‘money.’ Warnock adds military to the list.

Hari Sevugan, a former spokesperson for Barack Obama’s campaign, called Rubio out, pointing out the source of Warnock’s words.

While Rubio complains about Warnock citing a Bible passage to support his views, here’s a sample of Rubio’s Twitter posts, from November alone.

The special elections in Georgia will determine whether Joe Biden goes forward with a Republican-controlled Senate, or has enough Democrats in House and Senate to easily pursue his campaign promises.
