Religious hypocrite and moral coward Marco Rubio tweets scripture, gets avalanche of Bible lessons

The moral hypocrisy connected to Americans who call themselves God-fearing and Christian but who also vote for and support Trump and other Republican leaders is well-documented. It’s hard to argue with someone who believes that a forced-birther stance, devoid of any moral consistency, somehow immunizes one from a harsh Judeo-Christian judgment. A person like that—say, a Sen. Marco Rubio type—will say one truthful-sounding thing while acting in a truly morally bankrupt way. In fact, Rubio’s entire post-Trump career seems to consist of making statements that expose the stark hypocrisy at the heart of the Republican Christian myth.

On Sunday, Rubio went online to do the thing he likes to do: Pick out something in his Bible and then cut and paste it into a tweet to pretend he is both smart and Christian. Today’s statement comes from the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament, from the prophet Isaiah*: “Why do you make us wander, LORD, from your ways, and harden our hearts so that we do not fear you?” Deep stuff, right? Of course, almost anyone with the ability to read that quote is also endowed with all kinds of braincells that far exceed Rubio’s brain capacity. I’m not positive, but I believe Rubio’s mental and moral decline can be scientifically connected to the disappearance of a spine. Needless to say, the responses to this ridiculous missive from a man attempting to promote the moral superiority of Donald Trump to anyone opened the floodgates for an epic lesson in failed tweets.

There was the basic reminder of how Bible verses can be used, especially when they’re given even more context.

2 Thess 2:9-10 This man (antichrist) will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them.

When you refuse to love and accept the truth that will save you, you are already on the high way to destruction.

And even simpler reminders that may be more Rubio’s speed.

Of course, the entirety of the Western literary canon is influenced by these books that Rubio likes to cut and paste.

And a very simple statement of truth.

And a little kapow!

And here’s a non-religious take.

While I may not be a religious person, I can clearly see when someone is bullshitting their way with fake religious beliefs. @marcorubio is as bad as they get

And a more factual, religiously inclusive take.

That’s not the Lord doing that. That’s this dude:

Here’s a fun visual take using everyone’s favorite book, Exodus!

And finally, what I kind of believe to be one of the great replies of the 21st century.
