Mark Silk: The Bible Face Off Between Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & Sarah Huckabee Sanders

This week the Notorious AOC cited Scripture for her purpose. Which was to slap down Sarah Huckabee Sanders for criticizing her views on climate change. OMG.

In case you missed the story, it goes like this.

On Monday, Martin Luther King day, AOC was being interviewed by Ta-Nehisi Coates and, alluding to the recent U.N. report’s claim that we have 12 years to prevent climate change disaster, inquired rhetorically, “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 gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?’ ”

Tuesday evening, after the remark was reported by The Hill, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked for a response by Fox News’ Sean Hannity. Ever alert to claims about the end of the world, the daughter of the sometime head of the Arkansas Baptist Convention flung down the spiritual gauntlet.

I don’t think that we are going to listen to her on much of anything, particularly anything that we will leave into the hands of a much, much higher authority. And certainly not listen to the freshman congresswoman on when the world may end.

After Raw Story reported that, AOC took up the challenge. “You shouldn’t need a Bible to tell you to protect our planet, but it does anyway” she tweeted, tipping her hat to Relevant Magazine for “Stopping Climate Change is a Part of Following Jesus,” an article by Evangelicals for Climate Action spokesman Kyle Meyaard-Schaap.
