Conservative columnist David French wrote an opinion piece published Saturday by the National Review arguing that Sanders "could use a remedial course in the text and meaning of the Constitution."

"Sanders's tirade was certainly outrageous: Article VI of the Constitution prohibits religious tests for public office, and he blatantly violated the language and spirit of that prohibition in Skewering Vought," wrote French.

"Each public servant, including Vought, is required to support the Constitution regardless of his faith. If he were to violate the constitutional rights of any citizen he could and should be held to account — even if he believed his action to be religiously justified or compelled. But no senator can simply presume that Vought won't comply with the Constitution because he believes only followers of Jesus Christ will receive salvation."
