Trump's acting attorney general: Judges should be Christian with a "biblical view of justice"

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, Trump's replacement for fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions, thinks that if you're not Christian, you shouldn't be a federal judge. Judges should be "people of faith" and need to have a “biblical view of justice," and Whitaker would like to see a person's "world view," because if they have a secular world view, he'd be "very concerned with how they judge."

Whitaker revealed his ignorance with these remarks during a 2014 conservative forum while vying for the Republican US Senate nomination in Iowa.

The takeaway from this: According to the acting Attorney General of the United States, if you're open-minded, don't be a judge.

1. Oh, for pity's sake!

That man should hold no position of authority or trust.

2. I have come to the point where I think there SHOULD be...

...a religious test for holding office in the US - only atheists and agnostics need apply.

3. So if I rob someone of his jacket, he has to give me his shirt, too?

That's biblical.

4. A false theocracy

That is the Republican plan. Using religion only to distract the masses while they rob them blind.

5. Old Town Judge told me .....

I can follow the rules and can still administer Justice tempered with mercy. He was on the bench over 30+ yrs.

13. This is one of the best scenes in this...

...masterfully written series.

I would rather have any of the writers and producers of The WW in the White House than those who are actually there. They seems to understand the complexities better.

Trump probably doesn’t have the attention span to sit thru a 1 hour episode.

14. Trump seems to like those who are blackmailable.

Mobsters thrive on their protection rackets.

Isn't that fundamentally against The Constitution?

Our president isn't no matter how much the evangelists try to say otherwise.
