An atheist group has demanded that Sen. Marco Rubio stop tweeting Bible verses claiming that it’s against the Constitution. From the Christian Post:

The nation’s largest atheist organization is demanding that Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., stop tweeting Bible verses from his Twitter account, telling him that doing so is a violation of the United States Constitution.

The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, which advocates for strict adherence to separation of church and state and has over 1,400 members in Florida, sent the 46-year-old 2016 presidential candidate a demand letter on Tuesday to complain about an increase in Rubio’s Bible-themed tweets since May.

Response: Presidents, governors, senators, members of Congress, and other government officials have quoted from the Bible more times than one can begin to count in the history of our nation. Now all of a sudden this is against the Constitution just because this radical group of atheists say so?

The FFRF group has been extremely successful intimidating government officials with the threat of lawsuits to get their way. No official or government entity can really afford to get tied up in the courts so most just cave-in the their demands. If more folks called their bluff the FFRF would actually have a hard time paying for all of their potential suits and court cases.

When someone serves in the government does that mean they give up their Constitutional rights to religious freedom? That has never been the case in the past and will not be in the future unless the Supreme Court says so. Meanwhile Sen. Rubio plans on continuing to quote from the Bible.               *Top

    I suppose that, if Abraham Lincoln delivered his Gettysburg Address today, it would be protested by the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Lincoln made at least 3 Biblical allusions in his Second Inaugural Address. Washington made at least one reference to God in his first inaugural address. Eisehower’s pre-invasion to the US (and allied) troops before Normandy would be banned. FDR appealed to God at the end of almost every one of his fireside chats.

    In light of the public pressure to remove Confederate monuments etc. I can see the FFRF pressing to edit, censor or remove these historic documents from the history books.

    Exactly Brian,
    However the historic documents don’t need to be changed since they are no longer taught in most of our colleges and universities. Incredibly US history is no longer required at most even for history majors.

    What is really disturbing is that recent graduates have no idea of our religious past in America and the majority of our young people according to recent polls would actually agree with the FFRF that it is unconstitutional.
