Washington Post Reporter Robert Costa Smears Trump Official For Being Christian

The Christian official was smeared by Democrats and Robert Costa of the Washington Post is treating the smear as fact.

This really is wrong to push out without the proper context around the particular remarks. He undoubtedly is pushing it without context to drive up traffic, but doing so unfairly and inappropriately maligns the target of his tweet.

The Democrats smeared Russ Vought, the current head of OMB, because Vought is a Christian and wrote in defense of his Christian alma mater that the Christian institution had the right to require of its faculty and students a belief in orthodox Christian beliefs.

Bernie Sanders and the left took that as an anti-Muslim attack. All Vought did was defend a Christian institution's right to remain bound by Christian orthodoxy. You can read his piece for yourself. Russ wrote it here.

That Costa has chosen to treat the Democrat smear as fact and spread it against Vought is damnable thing and he should apologize. His tweet strips away all the context of Vought's remarks -- namely that he was writing in defense of a Christian institution being Christian. Costa's tweet suggests Vought has some sort of bigoted animus against Muslims instead of noting Vought was defending a Christian institution.

As an aside, there is increasingly a movement within the Democrat Party to vote against any who profess orthodox Christian beliefs in public. Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein have announced their opposition to members of the Catholic charitable groups and Sanders insisted Russ Vought reject the orthodox Christian belief that Jesus is the only path to salvation.

Instead of slandering Christians, perhaps Costa should denounce Democrats violating the constitutional prohibition on religious tests.

How exactly was he smeared? They quoted him. Those were his words. I thought a smear had to be some false charge or testimony, not simply pointing out that you condemn all Muslims to hell.

The question is what a Christian official is doing in a pagan sewer of lies and criminality like the Trump administration. Missionary in the cannibals' village?

Erick, I am an oldster, meaning I don't tweet. It would be good for you to tell us how to respond to this type of attacks. ( I find it amazing that anyone can keep up with all of the social media...I have seven e-mail accounts, four for businesses I own, one for a ministry, and two personal accounts) and just trying to keep up with them is a full time job.

Having said that, how do you get people who do these things to understand there is a real "cost" to their recklessness? What would these folks see as a negative result for their words and actions?

Curious to see if you have some wisdom to share about activity I can take that will make a difference.

Grace and Peace
