WATCH: Christians are tired of being bullied for faith
Another day, another absolutely avoidable flub by the idiot Socialist.
As you probably know by now, the left is losing their MINDS over new abortion legislation.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez decided to take the “mock Christians” approach… and stepped on a couple of rakes on her way.
According to Daily Wire:
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) made her disdain for conservative Christians clear this week with multiple attacks she made on social media about people of faith.
Ocasio-Cortez’s attacks were sparked by Alabama outlawing nearly all abortion in the state this week, which led to freshman congresswoman claiming without evidence that “US religious fundamentalists” are trying to “outlaw sex that falls outside their theology.”
Abortion bans aren’t just about controlling women’s bodies.
They’re about controlling women’s sexuality. Owning women.
From limiting birth control to banning comprehensive sex ed, US religious fundamentalists are working hard to outlaw sex that falls outside their theology.

This has NOTHING to do with saving babies. It’s about OWNING WOMEN.
…give me a break.
Ocasio-Cortez continued her attacks on Christianity on Thursday, mocking conservative Christians in a tweet in order to push her political agenda.
“Usury – aka high interest – happens to be explicitly denounced in the Bible (& in many other religions),” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “Looking forward to having the religious right uphold their principles + sign onto my bill. Unless of course they’re only invoking religion to punish women + queer people.”

In a statement to The Daily Wire, Pastor Mark Burns noted Ocasio-Cortez’s claims were not accurate, highlighting that she lacked key context about scripture.
“In context, usury in the Old Testament was when a fellow Jew would charge interest to a fellow Jew. There was no requirement set for interest on a loan to those outside the household of faith,” Burns said. “For example, after the Babylonian captivity, the Jews were rebuilding their homes and needed money. There were wealthy Jews who allowed their brothers to borrow money yet charged them interest, which was forbidden in the law God gave Moses. Thus, Nehemiah and Ezra informed the lenders they must remove the interest charges, which they did.”
“This would be similar to a son or daughter borrowing a thousand dollars and the mom or dad charging interest,” Burns continued. “It is something that most families would never do. This is the same principle God established for the Jews among their brothers. They were all in a covenant family.”
“Even Christ said in a parable to take money and invest it to have more income and thus use interest or gains from profit to your benefit,” Burns added. “It is normal, however, if there is interest charged on someone who is an associate that borrows for his business. This also assists in motivating the borrower to pay back the loan back as delayed payments can increase the charges.”
But sure, keep pretending like you have ANY clue what you’re talking about, Alex.
On Friday, Ocasio-Cortez attacked Republicans’ Christian beliefs, calling them “far-right” and “creepy.”
“What angers me about the GOP’s attempts to turn the United States into a far-right Christian theocracy is how dishonest they are about it,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “At least be forthright about your desire to subvert and dismantle our democracy into a creepy theological order led by a mad king.”
Imagine – for ONE SECOND- her reaction if someone called her pals Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar’s Muslim faith “creepy.”
She’s such a hypocritical nightmare of a human.
