“…It seems trite but necessary to say that the First Amendment to our Constitution was designed to avoid these ends by avoiding these beginnings…” – 319 U.S. 624 West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette (No. 591) [1943]

Yesterday evening from Mitt Romney (r), via Twitter:

Robert Jeffress says “you can’t be saved by being a Jew,“ and “Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell.” He’s said the same about Islam. Such a religious bigot should not be giving the prayer that opens the United States Embassy in Jerusalem.

Today, from Representative Vicky Hartzler (r):

Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
Historic day as the U.S. moves our embassy to #Jerusalem. Is long overdue to recognize Jerusalem as the Capitol of Israel. God established it as such over 3,000 years ago! 2 Chronicles 6:6

Some of the responses:

Hail Satan!!

Except for the fact that we should not be basing our foreign policy decisions in 2018 on a book that was written 3000 years ago!

Is that like Two Corinthians??? Still believing in fairy tales…and u are in the House of Representatives!

Waiting for the Rapture?

Every time god wanted a peace of land it was a one sided issue. Your just cashing in on something that makes you sound like you give a care about religion! Or was that not you trying to pull hlthcare away from the poorest among us? Wake up folks! #BlueWave2018

America has blood on their hands of innocent children as the result of this action! WWJD?

Freaking Clueless, people are dying today ~ right this minute bc of your party’s clueless actions! Tragic!

Awe, how cute….Vicky senses the Rapture is near…you know, when Jesus rides a dinosaur into Israel and converts all Jews into Christians.
