I urge you to watch this short video exchange between Senator Bernie Sanders and Russell Vought, President Trump's nominee for Deputy Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, which occurred on June 7.

As National Review's David French writes, "This is a disgraceful and unconstitutional line of questioning from the man who came close to being the Democratic nominee for president. He’s not only imposing a religious test for public office in direct violation of Article VI of the United States Constitution, he's gone so far as to label this decent man — who's seeking to serve his country in a vital role — as 'not someone who this country is supposed to be about.'"

"Vought expressed entirely orthodox Christian beliefs. There is nothing 'extreme' about his statements, and they mirror the statements of faith of countless Christian churches and schools across the land."

Sanders' tone was clearly hostile and aggressive toward the tenets of the Christian faith and Scripture.

Sign the petition to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, urging him to lead efforts to formally censure Senator Bernie Sanders for violating Article VI of the United States Constitution.
