Rubio FIRES BACK at Politico On His Use Of Bible Verses

Marco Rubio tweets Bible verses and for some reason Politico decided to attack him for it. Joel Baden, a teacher at Yale Divinity School, wrote in the particular Politico piece that Rubio’s “insistence” of quoting the Bible on Twitter only shows he wants “confirmation” of his own Republican views…

“Proverbs is notable in that is presents a fairly consistent view of the world: The righteous are rewarded, and the wicked are punished…Proverbs is probably the most Republican book of the entire Bible,” Baden argued.

“Concentrating exclusively on the parts of it that affirm one’s own perspective is a form of confirmation bias,” he continued.

Thankfully, Rubio was paying attention and snapped back, pointing out that the Bible had, in fact, been written thousands of years before “modern day political parties” ever existed!

It didn’t take long for others to join in, backing Rubio’s statement…

There’s more but that should suffice. Baden also argued, without fact checking first, that Rubio should read other parts of the Bible besides Proverbs… but that, too, put other Twitter users on the case!
