AOC Compares Religious Liberty To White Supremacy

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said religious liberty advocates are “weaponizing” the Bible to “justify bigotry,” much like “those who justified slavery did.”

“It’s very difficult to sit here and listen to arguments in a long history of this country of using Scripture and weaponizing and abusing Scripture to justify bigotry,” she said. “White Supremacists have done it. Those who justified slavery did it. Those who fought against integration did it and we are seeing it today.”

“I am tired of communities of faith being weaponized and being mischaracterized because the only time religious freedom is invoked is in the name of bigotry and discrimination.”

The freshman congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez a Catholic said she believes the Christian faith compels people to treat others as if they are holy.

“My faith commands me to treat Mr. Minton as holy because he is sacred because his life is sacred,” she explained, referring to one of the committee panelists. “There is nothing holy about rejecting medical care of people, no matter who they are, on the grounds of what their identity is. There is nothing holy about turning someone away from a hospital. There is nothing holy about rejecting a child from a family. There is nothing holy about writing discrimination into the law.”

AOC added, “And I am tired of communities of being of faith being weaponized and being mischaracterized because the only time religious freedom is invoked is in the name of bigotry and discrimination.”
