    Default Sanders has religious test for christians in public office

    SANDERS HAS RELIGIOUS TEST FOR CHRISTIANS IN PUBLIC OFFICE
    'This nominee is really not someone who is what this country is supposed to be about. I will vote no'

    (Atlantic) Article VI of the U.S. Constitution states that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” On Wednesday, Senator Bernie Sanders flirted with the boundaries of this rule during a confirmation hearing for Russell Vought, President Trump’s nominee for deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget.

    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.”
