A Sunday morning tweet has garnered its share of attention. What exactly is Rubio referring to? Check it out.
Then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb,& the leopard shall lie down with the young goat;The calf & the young lion shall browse together,with a little child to guide them. The cow & the bear shall graze,together their young shall lie down…

This tweet led to some interesting (and hilarious) speculation.
Not sure if @marcorubio is trying to explain how Trump is inviting Russia, Saudi Arabia and Turkey to attack us, murder innocent people and destroy everything we hold dear or promoting bestiality. Public support of #impeachment would be more useful. #SundayMorning #SundayThoughts https://t.co/8qNLIrkmZM

Then the trump shall be a guest of the lamb, & afterwards he shall lie down with the young girls; The trump & the young girl shall cuddle together, with a little condom to guide them. The GOP & the SC shall graze, together their young shall lie about all

If you’re going to start preaching about cows, you should start with the story of @DevinCow.

Is this offered as an excuse for the GOP getting in bed with Russia?

A Wisconsin-based organization that advocates for the separation of church and state actually officially asked Rubio to knock it off with the Bible verses in 2017.
“We have no issue with people reading and discussing the bible. The road to atheism is littered with bibles that have been read cover to cover,” Andrew L. Seidel, the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s director of strategic response, wrote to Rubio on Tuesday. “But it is not for the government in our secular republic to promote one religious book over others or to promote religion over nonreligion. Doing so violates the Establishment Clause of the Constitution.”
Seidel continued: “By tying your government title to a social media page, you have intimately entwined your official position with the messages you send on that platform, creating the appearance of official endorsement.
In the past, Rubio has tweeted tons of Bible verses, getting skewered nearly every time. For example, who is he referring to in this tweet? Trump? Democrats? Himself?
There are 6 things the LORD hates,7 are an abomination;
-a lying tongue
-hands that shed innocent blood
-a heart that plots wicked schemes
-feet that are quick to run to evil
-the false witness who utters lies
-the one who sows discord among kindred.

This guy pretty much nails it.
That is not only Sacred Scripture, it is a perfect description of @realDonaldTrump
