Democrat Senator Brian Schatz tried to fact-check Senator Marco Rubio and it was a colossal failure. Senator Schatz attempted to defend radical lefty Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock by googling a bible verse- a bible verse which he completely misinterpreted.
The Republican senator posted a video of Warnock who is preaching that “no one can serve God and the military.” Rubio tweeted, “These and even crazier thing is what the radicals who control the Democratic party’s activist and small dollar donor base believe.”
I’m not a very religious person but isn’t this from scripture?

The Daily Caller reports:
“Hey I just googled it and it appears to be from Matthew 6: 24,” Schatz tweeted to Rubio a few minutes later. “If you want to attack the Reverend on his policy views, fine, but this is a low blow.
The Bible verse that Schatz refers to makes no mention of the military, but instead reads: “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
Senator Rubio ended the exchange with a comment Schatz couldn’t come back from by asking, “So Warnock believes the U.S. military is “Mammon” and military service is incompatible with being a Christian?”
.@brianschatz Jesus doesn’t deny our earthly needs(see Mt 6:32)but teaches dependence on the Father. Mt 6:24 warns against becoming slaves to “Mammon”(Aramaic for wealth). So Warnock believes the U.S. military is “Mammon” & military service is incompatible with being a Christian?
