Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Christian Supremacy.]

"Last month, [President Obama] started mocking Republicans, saying that we were scared of orphans and widows. Well, people in the tradition know what that word means, right? That's one of Jesus— He commands 'take care of those in prisons, widows, and orphans.' Again, commands. But he's using the Christian tradition, and he's trying to bring about compassion by bonking Republicans over the head with the Bible. So I mean, that's— It's almost a comedy routine on what compassion and love is. He's mocking his enemies in order to compel a larger federal state using the tradition of love. And so our side, the conservative side, needs to reeducate its people that we own the entire tradition."—Sitting Republican Congressman from Virginia Rep. Dave Brat, during an interview with American Family Radio host Sandy Rios earlier this week.

Got that? The Republicans own the Christian tradition. But don't try to hold them to the standards of it! Because that's just mean. Unlike turning your back on refugees.
