4. Friendly Atheist
Popular Patheos blogger Hemant Mehta, also known as the "Friendly Atheist," posted an entry last week denouncing Sanders' actions.
While stating that he believed the senator's "heart is in the right place," Sanders' argument that Vought did not deserve to hold a federal government position because of his beliefs "is completely wrong."
"Sanders said he would vote no to Vought because he's a Bible-believing Christian, not because he said he would put the Bible over the Constitution while on the clock," wrote Mehta.
"That's religious discrimination. That's a violation of Article 6 of the Constitution (the part that says there should be no religious test for public office)."
