So you know how my brain does the thing where it takes something cute and/or feelingsy and turns it into something angsty and/or hilarious? Well…
You know how people often compare Thomas Sanders @thatsthat24 to an angel? I just… I just imagined him shedding his human skin and being revealed to be a throne which if you didn’t know a throne is an angel that IS TWO GIANT WHEELS INSIDE OF EACH OTHER COVERED IN THOUSANDS OF EYES AND ARE ALSO ON FIRE.
Anyways that was a terrifying and also incredibly hilarious image and I’m gonna go pray to my God that this vision full of conflicting emotions I just experienced is not true.
Please fire me. I am a paralegal, and one of the basic pieces of information we need from new clients for legal purposes is their date of birth. Usually, we simply allow them to write down said information on an intake form.
Today, I discovered that one of my clients listed their DOB as “12/31/15.”
I guess the unborn ARE entitled to legal representation, after all.
I saw an article that whole premise of it was that Bernie Sanders in conformation hearing for
deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget
was making it hard for him because he was christian.
Now this wasn’t in some far right online thing or some over the top christian blog.
And I read it and then read it again to make sure I understood what I read.
See what actually happened was Bernie Sander, a Jewish man, was making sure that the nominee was going to do his job for all the people and not just some.
You might wonder why Bernie Sanders was concerned here is why:
Sanders took issue with a piece Vought wrote in January 2016 about a fight at the nominee’s alma mater, Wheaton College. The Christian school had fired a political-science professor, Larycia Hawkins, for a Facebook post intended to express solidarity with Muslims. Vought disagreed with Hawkins’s post and defended the school in an article for the conservative website The Resurgent. During the hearing, Sanders repeatedly quoted one passage that he found particularly objectionable:
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.
“In my view, the statement made by Mr. Vought is indefensible, it is hateful, it is Islamophobic, and it is an insult to over a billion Muslims throughout the world,” Sanders told the committee during his introductory remarks. “This country, since its inception, has struggled, sometimes with great pain, to overcome discrimination of all forms … we must not go backwards.”
Yeah I am concerned too, Bernie.
Later, during the question-and-answer portion of the hearing, Sanders brought this up again. “Do you believe that statement is Islamophobic?” he asked Vought.
“Absolutely not, Senator,” Vought replied. “I’m a Christian, and I believe in a Christian set of principles based on my faith.”
As Russell Moore, the head of the political arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, said in a statement, “Even if one were to excuse Senator Sanders for not realizing that all Christians of every age have insisted that faith in Jesus Christ is the only pathway to salvation, it is inconceivable that Senator Sanders would cite religious beliefs as disqualifying an individual for public office.”
The exchange shows just how tense the political environment under Trump has become. But it’s also evidence of the danger of using religion to deem someone unfit to serve in government.
Bernie didn’t take issue with this guy being christian. Bernie was rightly concerned that the nominee may not do his job for all the citizens.
Sanders: I don’t know how many Muslims there are in America, I really don’t know, probably a couple million. Are you suggesting that all of those people stand condemned? What about Jews? Do they stand condemned too?
Vought: Senator, I am a Christian—
Sanders: I understand that you are a Christian. But this country is made up of people who are not just—I understand that Christianity is the majority religion. But there are other people who have different religions in this country and around the world. In your judgment, do you think that people who are not Christians are going to be condemned?
