‘I Wonder What Bible They’re Reading’: Joe Scarborough Rains Hell On Violent Christian Trumpers

On Wednesday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough condemned the Donald Trump supporters who called in violent threats against GOP Reps Adam Kinzinger (Illinois) and Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyoming) for serving on the House Select Committee investigating the Jan 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Kinzinger has received so many threats, that released a compilation of some of those threats —some of them drenched in religious rhetoric.

Reacting to the audio clip, Scarborough was disgusted by callers claiming it was “God’s will” that Trump’s enemies should be harmed.

“How grotesque, unfortunately, this is how people are thinking these days,” the “Morning Joe” host said. “This twisted version, this Christian nationalism that has absolutely nothing to do with the words of Jesus Christ, contained in the gospels of Jesus Christ — ‘God’s will?’ That woman, and millions of others like her, find God’s will in violence, in beating the hell out of police officers. These people, these so-called Christian nationalists, they have nothing to do with Christianity. They find God’s will in violence, in lies, in the desecration of the United States House, and the destruction of American democracy.”

“My preacher always said, don’t look for God in sin, you’ll never find him there,” Scarborough said. “Well, that’s exactly where these people are, and it is a perverse, twisted anti-Christian view of the world.”

“I just wonder what Bible they’re reading,” he added.
