Dem Senator Tried to Defend Radical Senate Candidate With Bible Verse: Still Got it Wrong

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.”

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?”



  1. In Luke 22:36-38 Jesus speaks to the 12 apostles and said:

    3He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one. 37 For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For what is written about me has its fulfillment.” 38 And they said, “Look, Lord, here are two swords.” And he said to them, “It is enough.” ESV

    Two swords would be enough for defense. Apparently Jesus wasn’t against weapons.
