Ocasio-Cortez: Jesus Christ 'Would Be Maligned as a Radical and Rejected' by Congress
AOC claims 'Christ Himself' would be shut down over his supposed far-left beliefs
Far-left celebrity Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has claimed that Jesus Christ "would be maligned as a radical and rejected" if He "walked through these doors" to speak before Congress.
Seemingly suggesting that "Christ Himself" would walk into the House of Representatives to promote Democratic policies, AOC insisted that He would be shut down by "bigotry."
According to the Huffington Post, the New York lawmaker was addressing a Committee on Oversight and Reform hearing focussing on claims that the Trump administration has rolled back LGBTQ rights.
Ocasio-Cortez was joined by Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) who also accused the administration of using executive orders to "turn the government into an instrument of hostility and opposition towards LGBTQ rights."
The administration has denied those claims in a response to the Huffington Post.
A spokesperson said the Democrats are working to distort President Donald Trump's record and refuse to acknowledge "any action he’s taken to protect and promote LGBTQ Americans."
Ocasio-Cortez said Jesus may very well be called a radical by today's standards because he spoke about loving enemies and embracing strangers.
She said her faith convinced her that all people are unconditionally holy and sacred.
“...if Christ Himself walked through these doors, [teaching] that we should love our neighbor and our enemy, that we should welcome the stranger, that we should fight for the least of us…He would be maligned as a radical and rejected…” Amen. pic.twitter.com/KIEaC1Q73o— Jim Wallis (@jimwallis) February 27, 2020

Evan Minton was diagnosed with gender dysphoria.
The disorder is a medical condition where a person experiences deep discomfort with the gender "assigned" them at birth, according to the American Psychiatric Association.
The report pointed to the Trump administration’s "conscience rule."
The rule would have cleared the way for doctors to avoid medical procedures on religious grounds.
The ruling was voided by a federal judge.
"There is nothing holy about rejecting medical care of people, no matter who they are, on the grounds of what their identity is," she said.
"There is nothing holy about turning someone away from a hospital."
