Ocasio-Cortez Schools Bible-Thumping Huckabee Sanders On Climate Change

Ocasio-Cortez Schools Bible-Thumping Huckabee Sanders On Climate Change January 24, 2019

AOC FTW: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cites the Bible to shoot down claims made by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on climate change.

Recently Ocasio-Cortez sounded the alarm on climate change. Speaking with Ta-Nahesi Coates at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, the NY congresswoman said:

Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it? This is the war — this is our World War II.

Later, while appearing on Fox News with Sean Hannity, Huckabee Sanders was asked about the remarks made by Ocasio-Cortez concerning climate change. On the program Sanders dismissed those concerns, explaining to Hannity:

I don’t think we’re going to listen to [Ocasio-Cortez] on much of anything — particularly not on matters we’re gonna leave in the hands of a much, much higher authority — and certainly, not listen to the freshman congresswoman on when the world may end.

Rejecting the attempt by the White House press secretary to dismiss concerns about climate change by leaving it “in the hands of a much, much higher authority,” Ocasio-Cortez used the Bible to demonstrate the moral and intellectual poverty of such a position.

Replying via Twitter, Ocasio-Cortez declared:

“Genesis 1: God looked on the world & called it good not once, not twice, but seven times.

Genesis 2: God commands all people to ‘serve and protect’ creation.

Leviticus: God mandates that not only the people, but the land that sustains them, shall be respected.”

In a follow-up tweet the congresswoman noted:

You shouldn’t need a Bible to tell you to protect our planet, but it does anyway.

Huckabee Sanders should apply cold water to that burn.

And while it is funny that Ocasio-Cortez turns the Bible against the short-sighted and deranged thinking of Huckabee Sanders, the most important part of the exchange is this:

You shouldn’t need a Bible to tell you to protect our planet…

Because in the end, the Bible is irrelevant, superstitious, non-sense, that has no place in a rational public policy discussion.

Previously White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders used the Bible to justify and defend the cruel and despicable policy of separating children from parents.

Bottom line: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez uses the Bible to school Bible-thumping Sarah Huckabee Sanders on climate change.
