Atheist Group Threatens to Sue Wisconsin’s Republican Governor Scott Walker Because the Bible Verse, Philippians 4:13 Appears on His Personal Facebook &Twitter Accounts
Atheists are so outraged that Governor Scott Walker, has the phrase, Philippians 4:13, underscoring his name on Facebook and Twitter that they’re threatening to sue him to make him take it down, reports The Blaze.
The popular New Testament passage, which says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” is being labeled a “threat” by atheists lawyers from the Freedom from Religion Foundation.
The organization’s co-presidents, Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor, sent the Conservative leader a letter asking him to remove the passage and now, they’re saying a lawsuit “is always a possibility” if he refuses.
They say the verse is “improper” for an American political leader to associate himself with because it uses “the machinery” of his state office to advocate for one religion over another.
The atheists compounded their insult with further outrageous injury when they said the Biblical message “seems more like a threat, or the utterance of a theocratic dictator, than of a duly elected civil servant.”
It should be noted that when the Apostle Paul penned that scripture, the verse was intended as an uplifting encouragement to Believers that describes God’s provision of supernatural strength and courage for His people (including Paul) during trying times.
