Religious 'hypocrite' 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 is hard to argue with someone who believes that a forced-birther stance, devoid of any other moral consistency, somehow immunizes one from a harsh Judeo-Christian judgement. 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, Marco Rubio went on line 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 Marco Rubio's brain capacity. I'm not positive but I believe Marco'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 a historically epic ratio.
There was the basic reminder of how Bible verses can be used, especially when they are given even more context.

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